I'm looking for some educational haunt DVD's. Does anyone have any recomendations as to which ones were of most help? It really doesn't matter what subjet they on, makeup, design, detailing, or whatever. Anything that might provide some good information.

Thanks

creature crates used to have a great one on haunted house acting.

the JBCorn DVD is available here and there and is free. If you are an IAHA member, t will be coming your way this year.

There is also an excellent pneumatics video from Hacker House.

Jordan24,

I would say as far as make-up dvd's go you have two options, Shutter productions HAUNTING MAKE-UP vol.1 "which is major kick ass" or the brand spanking new BODYBAG dvd called "XTREME HAUNT FX" Which i am sure will become a must have for years to come!!! I personally would suggest both!!

Just some random dude

Hey, in regards to your question about educational DVDs I wanted to mention the following DVDs. HAUNTING MAKEUP VOLUME ONE which has over three hours of makeup demos including 13 makeup jobs, as well other insights including costume detailing, advice for beginners, and teeth making. The makeup demos include grease paint blending techniques, soft sculpting using latex and cotton, airbrush techniques, using gelitan in makeup, and prosthetic appliance sculting and application. It has proven very helpful to many different haunted attractions including Terror Park, Netherworld, Darkwood Manor, Haunted Hydro, and many others. I'm not just saying this because I am the producer/creator either. Check out an earlier thread here on hauntworld around a year ago originally posting in late february 2007 and hear what customers who bought it at Transworld had to say. Also, there is a brand new makeup DVD coming out in march 2008 by Bodybag Entertainment called Xtreme Haunt FX with more awesome makeups! HAUNTING MAKEUP VOLUME ONE can be purchased through the website www.screamlinestudios.com. The important thing is to get your hands on as many resources as you can to learn and be inspired, and to practice, practice, practice!

Makeup Artist/Actor

P.s. Hey, it appears while I was writing this post, my good friend Jason Blaszczak coincidentally gave you some suggestions as well, and look what they were! (LOL). I swear, I did not pay him to say that! And by the way, Jason was a makeup artist on makeup jobs he did for both DVDs, and he is a great makeup artist, designer, and set builder, and a well respected member of the haunted attraction industry. The documentary PLAYING WITH FEAR is a very inspirational DVD that has interviews with some prominent haunted attraction actors, as well a second disc of all makeup demos! Oh yeh, and Jason is in that too! (LOL).

I thought I would drop in here and throw Evilusions into the mix. We have two make up dvds - geared towards beginner learners and quick "you need to get in your scene NOW" type make up jobs. Being the make up artist on the majority of both, I can say there is a lot of good techniques and info in them. I've seen Geoff Becks and there's a lot of talented artists there too, and it looks like Bodybagging has talent as well! (get ready... inserting my own horn toot here.. lol) I came in second place with a partner in the make up contest at transworld in 2007 - I lost to Bodybagging by the way :) and was second place at MHC, so I too have talent. You have a lot of choices to make, and with the dvd's listed already, you can't go wrong!

When you think of all the knowledge out there, especially the concentrated knowledge on this site, I think the average person's head would explode.

I personally have learned a ton from all the Hauntworld videos. The tips as well as the other haunt tours are priceless.

When do the videos ship!?! BodyBaggin!

I ordered a few weeks ago and have yet to receive them?!

Nightmarez read the Preorder info, the official release date is March 16th,2008 at the transworld exhibit show, those that took advantage of the preorder deal recieved their copy for nearly 50% off and will recieve their copy prior to the release date but not to prior. for fear of competing with our own DVD under a Chinese label at TW. They have not shipped yet. they will most likely ship next week. prior to the show. If you misunderstood the preorder offer and would like a refund, I will be glad to issue one.

Mr Nightmarez
03-04-2008, 08:58 AM
No, No...

Just yanking your chain! I'll drop by the booth at TW! Looking forward to them!

I read it but slept since then and could not remember the dates... :) All is good!

Katie,

Loved your videos. I was looking for something to help some of the actors put each other into make-up. I got a couple talented make-up people, but they are always under the gun to get it all done in a short period of time. This year I want to try to get some of the actors more involved in make-up, and your videos are really good for laying out the basics. You do a great job at instructing! You need to shamelessly promote those more often.
When all else fails, add more blood!:)

Lurker, thanks alot for the awesome review. I'm glad youenloyed the videos. I love to do what I do and I hope that shows and I'll work on the shameless promotion :) lol! If you're going to MHC - PLEASE come find me at the Evilusions booth! And could you tell, I love blood??? It's the great forgiver!
