As the summer heat cools down and the leaves on trees change color, this can only mean one thing and one thing only, Fall is coming! We’ve come up with a list of things you can do with friends this Fall.
Going to a Pumpkin Patch
Starting off with going to a pumpkin patch! When Fall comes the season of pumpkins starts. These pumpkin patches aren’t just for picking out pumpkins, you could say they’re more like mini-festivals! They could have anything from; games, attractions, petting zoos, and food! Go out to your local pumpkin patch and see what’s in store!
If you went to your local pumpkin patch, then you had to have bought some pumpkins right?! Next, we have pumpkin carving, a great activity to do with your friends and family during the Fall Season. Carve the coolest or wackiest designs with your friends and family to see who did the best!
As Fall comes, then that means Halloween is just around the corner! Decorate with your homes with your friends to see who had the scariest decorations! You could even use uncarved pumpkins with digital decorations and a projector to project some spooky animations!
Outdoor Movie Night
Last but not least, you can’t do Fall without having an outdoor movie night! Whip out your favorite projector and invite your friends and family to have a nice and cool Fall movie night! Bring your favorite snacks and bring out a projection screen or even a big white blanket to play with your favorite movies outdoors!

Things are finally beginning to cool down, and with Fall just around the corner, the next big seasonal holiday is none other than Halloween! Did you know that you could use a projector to create digital decorations? The use of a projector paired with holographic effects can create even the scariest illusions for your haunted house this Halloween! We’re going to dive into the necessary tools needed to create these digital decorations.
The first thing you will need to create these digital decorations is going to be a projector! You will want to have a projector that has a short to medium-range throw ratio. The projector will not need high resolution, standard resolution will work perfectly fine! Lastly, lumens will make the biggest difference, as this will factor in how the holographic image is produced on the projection screen. We recommend something with at least 100 LED lumens or more!
Here’s a list of some of the projectors we think would be the best for this:
The next thing you will need for the digital decorations is going to be a projection screen. However, this isn’t going to be just your average projection screen, you’re going to need something that is thin and semi-transparent for this to work perfectly! We recommend using thin mesh netting, transparency film, or anything that is really see-through. This is a necessary piece as this will provide the illusion of a holographic effect, the more see-through your screen is the better the effect!
Here’s a list of some materials you can use as projection screens:
Lastly, you are going to need the star of the show, your visual effects! You can use a vast majority of different visual effects, however, we recommend something that isn’t too bright with now background images as it can cause make the projection screen visible.
Here are some examples:
