ATMOSFAN OF THE WEEK

People often ask us, how does AtmosFX find the inspiration for new digital decoration innovations?

It’s simple. We get by with a little help from our friends.

The AtmosFX community has taught us that when you provide new tools to a bunch of creative people, you’ll always be amazed with the results. Digital decorating fans are continually inspiring our team with incredible feats of digital decorating goodness. Because a little inspiration goes a long way, the AtmosFAN of the Week program was launched in September 2015 to shine a spotlight on our favorite decorators. We've immortalized these triumphs in our AtmosFAN Hall of Fame, to further inspire other decorators to dream up the Next Big Thing in digital decorating.

AtmosFan Hall of Fame

This AtmosFAN’s Halloween Display Has a Different Type of Monster

August 6, 2020 — As much as we love traditional Halloween decoration displays, we really love Halloween decoration displays that are just a little bit different. And if it includes dinosaurs? Done deal! That’s the beauty of Chad Dunning’s display at his Muskego, Wisconsin, home – it is, at once, ahead of its time and 200 million years behind it.

AtmosFAN Goes All-In Inside AND Outside her House

July 22, 2020 — Some people decorate outside their house for Halloween. Others decorate inside. We love both types. But we’ve got a special place in our heart for those who do BOTH. And, when we say both, we’re talking about those who are so all-in, they’re willing to put a full size animatronic in their living room! Yeah, we’re talking about you, Stacy Paskett of Roy, Utah. And we love it!

AtmosFAN Builds Great Doorway Projection

July 8, 2020 — We think projecting in your doorway is both underutilized AND is super-easy to deploy at your home. And as a great example of how good it can look, we bring to you something that Justin Cannon, of Chubbuck, Idaho, sent us. It is crisp and clear – and because people don’t expect to see a decoration in the actual doorway, it really makes a visual impact.

Christmas Comes Early Thanks to This AtmosFAN

June 24, 2020 — We're halfway to Christmas. So, we thought we’d celebrate the occasion by spotlighting this holiday display from Bill Whittaker of Hudson, Florida. Here's what we love about Bill's display. It is a great collection of multiple projection modes in one location – in this case: prop, wall and window modes. And it's never too early to start thinking about your Christmas decorations, right?

AtmosFAN Creates Vivid Display That’s Easy to Hide Away

June 19, 2020 — As we start thinking about our displays for the upcoming Halloween, we thought we’d begin by highlighting something sent to us by Rob Votaw of Oak Grove, Missouri. He’s put together a bright and detailed display that’s almost completely enclosed in his garage, making it really easy to tuck away at the end of the night.

Atmosfan’s Virtual Background Gives Us a Laugh

June 11, 2020 — Last week we got a good laugh at an AtmosFAN who used Zombie Invasion! Digital Decoration to express how his family felt after months adhering to a stay-home order. Well, we had another chuckle from Dave Smith of Plymouth Meeting, Penn., who used the same digital decoration to express his frustration with having to take part in multiple Zoom calls each day.

Atmosfan Expresses What We Are All Feeling

June 3, 2020 — No matter where your state might be in the reopening process, we think everyone would agree that it felt like that day would never get here. So, for all of you that still feel a little cooped up, we provide some humor thanks to AtmosFAN Michael Anglin of Kerrville, Texas. He and his family have done a great job expressing the way so many of us feel these days!

Atmosfan Translates Digital Decorations for German Fans

May 20, 2020 — We’ve known about Timo Fischer for years – he’s been creating incredible digital decoration displays for years at his home in Walldorf, Germany. But what really got us interested was his current project. Timo has built software that allows native German speakers to translate digital decorations from English into German.

A Halloween Display Rich in Detail

May 6, 2020 — We never get tired of fantastic Halloween displays – that is true even in May. This week we take you to southeastern British Columbia, where Brandon Kootnekoff put together an incredibly detailed Halloween display – one that keeps growing each year, both in complexity and in detail.

Three AtmosFANs Bring the Goods for Easter!

April 22, 2020 — We are like the rest of you – we all need a few more happy surprises these days. So, even though Easter is behind us, we thought we’d share three great submissions from our AtmosFANs that gave us a pleasant jolt of springtime joy.

AtmosFAN Builds Community During Time of Social Distancing

April 8, 2020 — With schools closed and large public gatherings discouraged, Amanda Mullarkey of Naperville, Illinois, was looking for some creative ways to pass the time with her kids. First, she created a drive-in movie theater by projecting videos and digital decorations on the side of her home, where other families could watch safely isolated in their cars. But if that weren't enough, she then put on a digital display to show appreciation for all the people in her community who were on the front lines battling the coronavirus pandemic.

A Colorful Halloween Display, Completely in Sync

March 25, 2020 — Now that springtime is here, we’re craving the jolt that comes from bright, colorful digital decoration displays. But because we’re AtmosFX, we especially love it when that jolt comes from bright and colorful Halloween displays – in March. For this reason, we were delighted to come across this video sent to us by Robert Crouch, who put together a dazzling display at his home in Indianapolis, Indiana.

AtmosFAN Celebrates a ‘Hallowedding’

March 11, 2020 — Last year, Vicky Vilaret and her family decided to “up their Halloween game” at their St. Petersburg, Florida, home. And given that she lives in a popular destination for trick-or-treaters, one that typically gets about 2,000 visitors on Halloween night, she knew they had to do something special. So she and her family put together a “Hallowedding” theme – and it looks simply fantastic.

AtmosFAN Builds Cemetery in Sister’s ’Hood

February 26, 2020 — There are some people who love Halloween so much, they’re not going to let small obstacles keep them from celebrating the day. That’s the case for George Gakoumis, Jr., of Orlando, Florida. A former professional haunter, George took a job that didn't allow him to decorate for Halloween professionally. So George asked his sister, who lived nearby, if he could decorate her yard for Halloween.

AtmosFAN Adds Pizazz to Countertop Display

February 12, 2020 — Sometimes you come across a display that is so simple, yet so effective, you wonder why everyone doesn't do something just like it. That's what we thought when we came across Robie Pace's framed display of the Enchanted Snowman Digital Decoration. And it makes us ask: Why can't you frame any digital decoration for Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, Easter, or any time of year? Of course you can!

AtmosFAN’s Unique Take on the Christmas Display

January 29, 2020 — Sometimes we come across a display that is just so joyful and goofy, we can’t stop watching it over and over again. In our view, we are not necessarily looking for the most beautiful or most elaborate digital display – it’s just gotta have spirit. And that’s certainly the case with the video sent to us by Amanda Mullarkey of Naperville, Illinois. Displayed on the broadside of her house during this recent Christmas season, Amanda put together a projection display that is irreverent as it is charming.

Atmosfan’s Halloween Display Is Perfect for January

January 14, 2020 — Robert Krissel has been delighting his neighbors during Halloween with AtmosFX Digital Decorations for years. But before he could plan his display this year, his Colorado home was hit with a ton of early-season snow. What to do?

AtmosFANs Share Three Different Takes on Home Decorating

December 18, 2019 — This week, we thought we’d show you three different takes on a home decoration display for the Christmas holiday. Each presentation takes a different approach on decorating a house – on the inside, on the outside, and even a gingerbread house.

AtmosFANs Take Snowglobe Mode Global

December 11, 2019 — Two weeks ago we introduced to the world our newest holiday-themed digital decoration, Enchanted Snowman. And in that short time, thanks to our most dedicated AtmosFANs capturing him on video, we see that he is getting around! In so many of these videos, we have noticed that they are displayed in "Snowglobe Mode." This week we want to highlight three different ways our clever AtmosFANs have chosen to display our newest digital decoration in Snowglobe Mode.

AtmosFAN Turns Entire House Into a ‘Yuletide Window’

December 4, 2019 — We always love it when our biggest fans go BIG. So we were particularly delighted to see what Phillips Projections did with one of our newest digital decorations, Yuletide Window. Using projection mapping software and an insanely powerful projector, they turned an entire home into stained glass! And you know what they say about living in glass houses … wait … that maxim makes no sense here. Let’s just say you simply need to see this stained-glass home!

AtmosFAN’s Big Top is Big Time

November 20, 2019 — One of the most frequent comments we have received over the years was a request for a digital decoration of ornery clowns. This year we responded with Creepy Clowns Digital Decoration. And when we saw how Scott Jeppsen decorated his Meridian, Idaho, home this past Halloween, we just knew this was the perfect example for why we made it!

Two AtmosFANs Offer First Taste of Christmas

November 13, 2019 — This week, we are going to take a small break from Halloween to offer two small Christmas-themed palate cleansers. After all, as much as we love Halloween – we know that Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's are fast approaching, and we need to be mentally prepared to celebrate them all!

AtmosFAN Creates a Feast for the Senses

November 7, 2019 — Like so many places outside the United States, Halloween is not universally celebrated – although participation seems to be growing each year. But for those outside the U.S. who do celebrate, like Jocelyn Van Temsche, they go all in.

AtmosFAN’s Tidy, yet Captivating, Halloween Display

October 30, 2019 — Before we send you into the Great Halloween Night, we want to stop off in Port Saint Lucie, Florida – not only because it is probably still warm there. It is where Jeff Smith has put together an impressively tidy, yet completely captivating, Halloween display.
