Evil Twin FX Hands On Sock Mask Making Workshop- Presented by Brian & Nick Wolfe of Evil Twin FX

Join Brian & Nick Wolfe of Evil Twin FX for this full day hands-on make & take workshop. Cameras and note pads are a must, as students will be instructed on how to create a custom one off, one-of-a-kind form fitting character mask. This hands-on workshop covers all aspects of building, painting and detailing a “sock mask” using everyday materials and foam latex appliances. By the end of the day, attendees will have completed their own mask that they can take home with them.

The Davis Graveyard – Building a Cemetery- Presented by Jeff & Chris Davis and the Davis graveyard crew

In this workshop, we will jumpstart or enhance an existing cemetery with a collection of foam based props which include tombstones, a weathered wood coffin, several monuments and an elaborate tomb, which are the basic essentials to get you on your way to that picture perfect cemetery.   At the end of the session a randomly chosen attendee will go home with the entire collection.

Getting Started in the Haunted House Business- By Leonard Pickel of D.O.A Design and Consulting

This session is a comprehensive overview of the various concerns relating to a “first time” October seasonal production, but even a well-established Halloween event will learn from Leonard’s 30 plus years of professional Haunting design and consulting experience. A Haunted Attraction is a business, and like any other business what you don’t know about this specialized field can kill you!

As he lays out a plan for success for you, Leonard will reveal his vision for what a successful event consists of and how to maximize your profits while minimizing costs and effort. Topics include: location requirements, safety and code compliance, attraction style, attraction design, multi-element approach, timed ticketing, advertising, operations, and answers to the most frequently asked questions, “How big should the attraction be, how much should I charge, and how much will it cost?”

SpFxWmn Productions Character Development Workshop- Presented by Michele L. Arroyo of SpFxWmn Productions Inc.

As many of you know, believable actors make the difference in getting the scare. Perhaps the reverse is more prevalent: when the actors break character or aren’t believable, people do not get scared and they don’t have the fun they came for. One of the things that helps an actor stay in character is an understanding of their characters and how they think.  This course will help you develop a detailed character to use in your haunt.
