Providence Village, TX, November 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Light show designer and Vaderville creator Darren Vader today announced that the debut light show of the 2008 holiday season will take place at 6pm on Friday, November 28th.
The Vaderville synchronized light show is made up of three neighboring houses pulsating in sync with more than 40,000 lights and special effects running on 80 computer controlled channels of animation. Highlights include a virtual Santa (who makes live appearances on weekends closer to Christmas), dozens of strobe lights, virtual snow machines, and animated video clips– all synchronized to a play list of unique versions of classic holiday songs being broadcast over an FM transmitter at 107.3fm on the dial.
Vader and his neighbors have been hard at work on their 2008 show since early March. “The technology that drives a show like ours is very cool, but it’s only a small part of the preparation equation. Every beat of every song is manually assigned to a position within a sequence, video is edited, layouts are created, props are built, and prototypes are tested. We spend about eight to nine months preparing for the 35 days or so that the show will run.”
“Our annual Christmas light show is the most important thing we do all year long. Our strong belief in ‘paying it forward’ is facilitated to a great degree by the absolute joy we see every night on the faces of visitors young and old alike,” said Vader. “This year we are partnering with Firehouse Christmas Lighting and the Hilltop Church HOPE BANK to collect donations of clothing and non-perishable food items that will help some local families have a brighter holiday.”
Vaderville is located off Highway 380 just east of Denton at 1441 Providence Blvd., Providence Village, Texas, 76227. Show times are Sunday – Thursday, 6pm-10pm and weekends from 6pm-11pm; weather permitting. This is a residential display, so admission is free. If you enjoy the display, please consider making a donation of non-perishable food items or clothing to the HOPE BANK. Donations can be placed in the collection bin at the front of the display. See www.vaderville.com for more information.
Vaderville was created by Darren Vader as a unique way to merge his interest in technology and music with his love of Christmas. Much to his surprise, it quickly became the talk of the town and a new tradition for a growing number of families each year. Vader takes pride in knowing that his passion is providing joy for all who witness his creation, and that the hard work allows Vaderville to give back to the community through its work with the Hilltop Church HOPE BANK.
