Darklight Precision Lighting is Title Sponsor for HAuNTcon in Houston, TX January 23-28, 2014

HAuNTcon is pleased to announce Darklight Precision Lighting is the title sponsor for HAuNTcon in Houston, Texas, January 23-28, 2014.

Darklight was founded in spring of 2010 as a manufacturer of special effects lighting equipment catering to the themed attraction industry. They specialize in illumination in low-light and space constrained environments where traditional theatrical luminaires are not suitable. The “Precision” series of LED fixtures were developed with compactness, safety, modularity, and ease of use in mind, allowing lighting designers to illuminate environments that were not previously possible with larger fixtures.

In 2011, they expanded their product line to include self-developed compact controllers that add a dynamic element to their luminaires.

In late 2012, they launched a new line of products catering to the professional lighting and architectural markets called the “Gantom” series. The industry recognized Gantom iQ, an ultra-compact image projector, spearheads their focus into the specified lighting market. Their award winning products have since become the “secret weapon” of many lighting designers and industry experts and have been installed in a wide range of applications including theme parks, museums, bars & clubs, casinos, and haunted attractions all around the world.

Final Call for Speakers: HAuNTcon Houston, TX, January 23-28, 2014

As HAuNTcon 2014 is fast approaching, we are sending out the final call for speakers. We invite YOU to share your knowledge, your experience and your expertise with our attendees!

EACH OF US has something important to share. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or new to our industry, sharing fresh, bold, new ideas is what HAuNTcon is all about!

Do a makeup demo, a show-and-tell for a great prop you built, tell us what you have learned about haunt marketing, offer a hands-on workshop, show us how you use social media, share your best room designs, teach us how you train your actors, tell us how you found funding, help us write a business plan – whatever your expertise, whatever you have learned from your experience inside or outside haunting that will help others do what they do cheaper, faster or better, we ask you to tell us about it!

It is said that public speaking can be people’s greatest fear, but I find that when I know the subject matter, really know what I am trying to say…that presenting a seminar is exhilarating!

So what are you afraid of? CLICK HERE to fill the speaker form! You will be glad you did and so will our attendees!

About HAuNTcon

HAuNTcon features movie & TV industry celebrities for presentations and personal appearances.  In the past we’ve hosted makeup professionals such as Brian & Nick Wolfe, Cleve Hall, and Tom Devlin.  Actors from iconic horror movies such as Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) have graced our celebrity ensemble.

If can’t get enough scares in October, try our Pre-Show overnight bus trip that includes lights on and lights off tours of local haunted events. This tour is followed by the full action tours on Friday and Sunday evenings.

The Trade Show floor, Friday through Sunday, is filled with the latest in fright services and equipment, for the professional Haunted House owner and the Halloween enthusiast alike. From horror makeup and highly detailed masks to static props and large animatronic creatures, everything a Haunter needs will be for sale, often at wholesale prices.  Stay four out Haunted Garage sale, where local haunted houses and manufacturers sell and trade anything everything haunted at this flea market/swap meet.  The sale is a great place to find killer deals.

The conference wraps up with advanced education on the Monday, following the trade show, with day-long hands-on workshops, covering everything from attraction design to creating realistic scenes of terror at your event!
