Freak of the Week: Matt E.

December 17, 2015 | Posted in Freak of the Week


With only a week before Christmas, it’s time for us to announce our final Freak of the Week for 2015!

To kick-off the season, we started with Timm Reed, a longtime AtmosFREAK who sent us a video using Santa’s Visit and Winter Wonderland from a previous year. (Since then, Timm has posted a new video of his new holiday display – you can see it here.)

Now, we bring you this awesome submission from Matt E., who hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Matt first learned of us earlier this year, when he decorated his home for Halloween using our AtmosFEARfx digital decoration, Phantasms. Then, he simply moved onto Christmas decorating.

“Halloween was my first go at it, and I was hooked after that.” Matt said. “I got such a positive response from the neighborhood – I was so excited to see the new Santa series.”

We love how Matt lit the entire front of his house with dramatic reds and greens. And, of course, we also love how he prominently displays Night Before Christmas in his front window.

One other thing we were impressed with: Matt’s DIY editing. Using Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, Matt took the digital download MP4 files he purchased and edited the scenes together, even mixing them up a bit. In the end, he created an hour-and-a-half long version of Night Before Christmas to display in his window. As AtmosFREAKS prove time and again, there is no shortage of ways to use our digital decorations – the only limit is your creativity. We love that.

Great work, Matt – you are now officially our new Cheeriest Freak of the Week!

Congratulations to our Freak of the Week winners, and thanks to all of you for your incredible submissions this year. We received so many great photos and videos that choosing winners was nearly impossible.

If you’re still looking for last-minute decorating ideas, don’t forget that all of our digital decorations are also available as digital downloads. By purchasing your favorite scenes digitally, you’ll still have plenty of time to put them into action for the big night!
