    I thought it would be fun to see how the new stuff at Disney actually works with the crowds. It really amazes me!

    It looks like the patrons are really impressed with the effects achieved. I'm told that "queue line entertainment" was a major Disney innovation, and I can see how people waiting 20 or more minutes to get inside would want that. I know I hate standing in line!

  2. FX Tips from the Indy Film Industry

I was listening to a recording of "The Great Gildersleeves" From 1943, when one of the characters said "Let's have a real old-fashioned Halloween party". I thought about that. Here is a show about 70 years old. What would characters in their 40s consider old fashioned?

  5. Haunting Science

    Anyone who knows me knows I love big displays of science. Sure, vinegar and baking soda is a mildly interesting reaction, but put it in a ziplock and it explodes, which is much better! Put it in a volcano model, and ...well, we have all seen that. Mentos and Diet cola is another spectacular reaction. I am always looking for something that makes a big impact.

    You have probably seen a Jacob's ladder. Nothing says "mad science" like a buzzing, sparking thing that serves ...
