Halloween Projection Mapping On A House

House mapping has proven to be a popular approach to decorating for the holidays. Projection mapping is a fun and fresh way to light up an entire outdoor region with Halloween scenes. Daniel Ioannou’s example of house projection mapping includes both his house and lawn to overlay his Halloween story.

Garage Mapping

Garages alone are a great projection mapping canvas for Halloween scenes. Visuals of fiery ghouls and skulls are accompanied by haunting music in this piece by Mark Hallett, who used his outdoor garage for projection mapping.

“I plan to incorporate Lightform…into a Pyromusical & Lightshow in the near future. I have been in the projection mapping world for a while now and can say [that] Lightform saves so much work, allowing more time for creativity. I love it!!” — Mark Hallett

DIY Halloween Props for Projecting

The use of smaller, handmade Halloween props and objects to display projections has proven quite popular. Mark Hallett’s project used scrap pieces of styrofoam to create his own haunted house-style window. In contrast, Julian Dorrell utilized a mannequin for his projection mapping project.
