Allen Hopps and Stiltbeast Studios news-

With all the excitement around here I though I would share what is going on in my world

I am teaching/moderating in a few classes-
At Transworld in St. Louis-
This is a lot of info for two hours, but I promise it will be worth it and I know classes are hit and miss -I intend to make this one a winner, you will walk away with an idea or two.
I won’t waste your time.

Building a Better Monster - Training Actors to Look and Be Terrifying

Speaker: Allan Hopps, Stiltbeast Studios
In this two-hour demonstration seminar, Allan Hopps will offer in-depth lessons on actor training, including character development, how to be scary, working with the elements of your scene, customer psychology, humor vs. fear, and many more critical topics. Costume design will also be covered in detail so you can learn how your actors can look and play the part.

I am also moderating this panel-
Haunt Acting Panel Discussion
4:30pm - 5:30pm
Moderator: Allan Hopps, Stiltbeast Studios
Panelists: D’Ann Dagen, Geoff Beck, Regina Englehart
I’m excited about this one! It should be a great chance to talk with and learn from some great actor trainer/ motivators!

And a member of this one- I may rock the boat a bit because I am sure my views differ from the other panel members. It takes all kinds and I am sure that one of our answers will be what you are looking for- lol. It’s really cool to be teamed up with all these great people. It is also a free seminar!
[Early Bird Seminar] How to Survive in the Haunted House Industry Panel Discussion
8:00am - 9:00am
Moderator - Ben Armstrong - Netherworld Haunted House
Panelists - Ed Terebus (Erebus Haunted House/FearFinder), Allan Hopps (StiltBeast Studios), Randy Bates (BatesMotel/Pennhurst)
Ben Armstrong from Netherworld Haunted House moderates this panel featuring a group of talented haunters who have spent years helping others in the industry. Learn from them the critical lessons about how to run a safe, entertaining attraction while avoiding the mistakes that can end an event’s career before it can ever really get started.

I am excited to see you all in St. Louis!
Also…
Stiltbeast Studios is going to have a booth! Booth #20 at the Transworld Show in St.Louis. I will haveall of my DVDs and the most Deranged masks ever assembled. It looks like I will have 130 plus masks at the booth. I know I cant display them all at once, so I will fill spots as each one is sold. Each mask is unique and hand crafted- they don’t come from a mold. I have three main styles of mask and many that are just outside the box. Institution, Scarecrow, and Killer are the main kinds check out my website for info on the masks.
Here is a teaser pic.
