Bringing Continuity To Your Haunt Sets

Friday, 10 May 2019
11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Haunters are scroungers. We look high and low for good deals, donations, left-overs, old stock from other haunts, free stuff off Craigslist, and even things left on the side of the road (we've all looked!). This class discusses methods of bringing those miss-matched items together to make a cohesive scene. Paint and aging techniques, creative pairings, adding to found/inherited props, etc. This class will include examples of what works and what doesn't, and how that can affect patrons, followed by an open forum to discuss successful tricks and tips. Class Level: Advanced


Gary Pankow

Gary is a long time home haunter, operating Mill Creek Haunted Hollow for over a decade, and volunteer at Nile Nightmares in Mountlake Terrace, WA. He's done everything from painting, sculpting, foam carving, construction, set design, prop building, lighting, audio, and projection. In 2012, Gary remodeled his home from a modest cape cod to a three-story Victorian, just so the house would work better with his Halloween themes. When he's not working on Halloween projects, he's keeping up with his day job as an Art Director for IBM, or having fun with his three daughters.
