    I finally got around to uploading some videos. They are very short but you get a better idea what I am going for. I used a digital camera to take the videos so they aren't very good.

    Sorry the Marshmallow one is so dark, the "fire" was blacking everything else out I think.

    Hello all,

    I got alot done today, worked on the "snow" and "glaciers" a LOT! Cut up the sheets of styrofoam for the snow and glaciers. I still have to paint them and that is going to be a chore! Got alot done while working today, and stayed after for 5 hours to keep on working on the project.

    I made my "snowing" machine but it is drying now so I don't know if it will work like I want it to. Basically it is 2 disco balls mounted on an 8 foot pipe that will spin horizantally rather than vertically. When lit, the reflections will hopefully look like it is snowing. (Praying to the snow gods!!)

    The animated penguins are still working like a charm, so I am not worried about them. I still have to get the trees out and put them together.

    I am SOOO TIRED!!! Sorry no pics, but I will try to take some when I get to work.

    Hello All!

    Well, after working all day on the project and staying after for 4 1/2 hours... I am about half done! I took some pictures and a short video of what I have done so far.

    http://s443.photobucket.com/albums/q...t=MOV01977.flv

    The pictures can be found at: http://s443.photobucket.com/albums/q...dwin/penguins/

    So far the display is 33 feet long with 11 trees and I forgot how many penguins.... I still have 6 more trees and the sledding penguins to add. I am also working on "fishing" penguins.

    I still have alot more to do, but I have to work tomorrow and needed some sleep (and a couple of beers...) :D

    Hope you enjoy!

    E

    P.S. Did I mention that the display is 15 feet off the ground on a 4 foot catwalk? haha
