Lyle Coram has a 7 years old daughter, named Shelby, who is a big Disney fan. So Lyle, who works at Paris and Bally’s hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada, decided to bring some of Disney magic to her daughter’s room and those of you who follow the D&M Facebook page may have seen recently a video of the stunning visuals effects created on the room ceiling. His daughter Shelby now sleeps each night under her very own fireworks display that mimics the one at Disneyland park and can play in her own castle which even include a magic mirror!
In an interview with ABC Lyle said: “We didn’t really plan the room it just came together, Every time we would go to Disneyland we would get new ideas and add it to the room. The first time Shelby saw the fireworks in her room she just laid on the floor for hours watching it. We even added different scenes like snow, floating lanterns, lightning and a ‘Star Wars’ battle.”
Below, the first video posted by Lyle on Youtube with the fireworks effect on the ceiling.
Below, a new video showing the “storm lightning” effect on the ceiling.
The first video was so popular and so many Disney fans wanted to know how he did it that Lyle Coram created an easy to follow tutorial for the ones who want to do the same in their home! You have the tutorial video below in which he reveal the names of the gear he used. It took three months to Lyle and his wife, Shannon, to do the whole thing: “The ceiling effect is done with a projector, fiber optics for the stars, LED cove lights around the ceiling and the ceiling is painted like the sky. All together it gives the ceiling dimension and makes it hard to figure out how it works. Our next project in her room is going to be an interactive floor done with projectors in the ceiling shooting down on the floor.”
