Transforming your scene through the use of styrofoam to create thematic facades. Concepts of framing, layering, and painting to build backgrounds, buildings, and sets.
Jeff and Chris Davis, and their talented crew, are the creators of The Davis Graveyard, a popular Halloween yard display in the Portland, Oregon area, which has been in operation for over ten years. As the nation’s largest and most detailed cemetery-themed yard haunt, the display has won several awards. It has been featured in magazines, as well as showcased in FearNet.com’s “Haunts Across America” series. The Davis Graveyard coordinates the Haunters Video Awards and DVD Set, now in its 12th year, a compilation of home haunter videos from all over the world that are judged and given awards. The Davis Graveyard offers seminars and teaches local workshops, sharing their prop building techniques at summer workshops. The Davis Graveyard was tapped to help with ABC’s “Extreme Home Makeover” of Nightmare Factory in Salem, Oregon, where they created hundreds of cinderblock walls and aged brick hallways and rooms, all out of foam.
