Darklight Precision Lighting – HAuNTcon Title Sponsor/Exhibitor
California Office (Sales & Distribution)
27811 Avenue Hopkins Ste 8, Valencia, CA 91355
T: (661) 347-0779 | F: (661) 793-6985

Darklight was founded in spring of 2010 as a manufacturer of special effects lighting equipment catering to the themed attraction industry. We 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, we expanded our product line to include self-developed compact controllers that add a dynamic element to our luminaires.
In late 2012, we 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 our focus into the specified lighting market. Our 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.

Distortions Unlimited
517 13th Street, Greeley, CO 80631
970-351-0100

Hidden in an industrial warehouse in Greeley, Colorado, Distortions Unlimited’s owners, Ed and Marsha Edmunds, make monsters. Their quality props, masks and creations have been a mainstay of the dark amusement industry since 1978. Long creative hours are spent in gray-walled offices with brain-eating hunchbacks, wall-scaling zombies and docile 3-foot tall aliens. The working environment looks more like a nightmare manufactory than a place of business.
As a child and fan of television shows such as The Outer Limits, The Time Machine and the original Star Trek, Ed enjoyed creating masks and putting on performances as monster characters. Continued experimentations with makeup turned his artistic hobby into a true talent at a young age, and among other stage makeup and prop work, he started his mask-making operation, Distortions Unlimited, while still in high school.
Through college, Ed developed his company’s products, sculpting a severed finger, molding bloody hands and becoming one of the first in the industry to sculpt cut-off arms. After college, Ed met Marsha Taub, a biology student from the University of Northern Colorado. Sharing a workplace, dedication to a faith in Christ, artistic passion and creative yearning, they became a team – one so strong, they exchanged marriage vows in 1992!
In its infancy Distortions was a diamond in the rough, making its first home in one bedroom of a two-bedroom apartment. Pumping out strictly masks, Ed worked to bridge the gap between the cheap masks he had previously painted and their high-priced American counterparts. Now in a Greeley, CO industrial-zoned 24,000 square-foot facility, Distortions has a year-round tight-knit staff of designers, artists, carpenters, sculptors, painters, pourers, patchers, seamers, welders, woodworkers, mold makers, sprayers, shippers, seamstresses, cutters, electricians, assemblers,

Makeup By Laney
EMAIL
West Hollywood, CA 90069

My name is Laney Chantal.
I am a Beauty and Special FX makeup artist.
My work includes Season 5 of FaceOff, work with Marilyn Manson, MageeFX FX shop, Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights, Universal Studios Grinchmas.
I come from a very small town in Michigan called Manitou Beach.
When I was 18 I decided I wanted to be bigger than the town I grew up in. When I was 19 my family helped make that dream become possible.
​ Immediately after my 20th birthday, I packed up a suitcase and left to Hollywood, CA with a very small budget. I was going to become a makeup artist after attending the Master’s Makeup Course at Cinema Makeup School. Growing up going to a Catholic school, I wasn’t allowed to watch many horror movies in the house. I however was allowed to watch all the Universal Monster Movies I wanted. Jack Pierce quickly became a childhood hero.
It has been almost four years since my big move, and I have really proved myself to my family and friends back in Michigan. My portfolio may be small now, but you cannot say it hasn’t grown rapidly in just 4 years. I truly am a firm believer and proof that dreams DO come true.
