As 2021 is giving haunters a wonderful opportunity to adaptively find new ways of telling our stories to our guests, we will walk you through some effective methods of scaring from a distance and getting into your client’s head. This class will guide you through the process to do this intentionally and repeatedly, using story and character design. The class will be divided into 4 parts: History, Theory, Application, & Framing.
