Hey, All!

I'm going to put together a digital scrapbook of TW 2009. If you would like
to submit photos or video, I will see if I can work it into the "book."

Things that will affect whether I can use the material:

- quality of video(s)/photos(s)
- relevance to the subject that's on the page
- propriety (i.e., no porn, etc.!)

Thanks!

other TW(?) shows.

As far as I know media is only allowed to take pictures and is required to have a press pass to do so. That's been the case for a while at Transworld. I guess Transworld is worried that people are going to steal vendors ideas by taking pictures or videotaping. But I doubt anyone will say anything if you try and take pictures. It's worth a try.

You guys I grew up watching TW videos on Youtube for the last 4 years. If the cameras aren't allowed you guys better hide them and sneak them in. Cause I need pictures and video. I couldn't afford the plane ticket to TW this year the first year I was elligible. So I'm bummed. DON"T FAIL ME!!!!!!!

How do you know I won't get the rules changed, hmm?

A "no photography" rule would be one of the stupidest things TW could do. When those who don't attend see the pics from those who did, they will want to attend the next year even more! That's protectionism, and it NEVER works.

Even when Photos and video were not allowed, people still did it.

As long as you ask, there shouldn't be a problem. Plus we like it when you let us know, and give us a business card. We like to see what you do with the photos. Just don't go taking pictures of things you don't have any business photographing like the inner workings of an animation etc...

Personally, I think it would be great to see a professionally done online scrapbook.
I think you would really have something if you started doing something like this on an upscale level.
I am sure it would be alot of work. Especially if you could get background info on all the images etc...

Has Shane ever told you wrong? Listen to me. Piss on TransWorld take as many photos as you like. Its your right your there to buy products and to take pictures of what your buying. I had over 300 pics from Vegas last year and 80% were from the show! If they give you any lip tell them go talk to Shane. Have fun and a good time!

FIRST: This will not be "professional." I hope I can make it look that way, and if it turns out well, I'd like to do more, and, as you say, on an upscale level. I think it would be popular. :)

SECOND: I have no problem letting people know what I'm up to. See that halo? It didn't get there by itself! :roll:

THIRD: I don't own business cards (yet), so I'll just have to introduce myself.

It's cool that the TW people would support the idea. We can have some fun with the scrapbook! :)

How do you know she's there to buy, there are so many people who come that don't buy, and take a lot of pictures, and go home and do it themselves.

I agree with Kevin on this, he's a vendor who does his own design, artwork, and whatever entails his business, and then he has to pay to display only to have someone steal your own idea.

Sarah this is not directed at you, I think shane thinks your only taking pictures of Props.

I couldn't agree more, HHN. Because I am a vendor of creative works (writing, etc.), I understand perfectly what you're saying.

In the writing world, this is an extremely common fear. Writers send in their ideas to publishers, who then choose whether to accept the idea and give the work to that writer.

Many times, a writer will submit the idea (called a "query"), and the editor says, "Sorry, we don't have a need for that right now."

Then the writer will see "his" idea in the next issue of the publication. The writer automatically assumes his idea has been stolen. In all likelihood, however, what has happened is another writer had a similar idea and already got the job.

I can't say that stealing ideas doesn't happen, but not many businesses that do so will stay open long. Word gets around, as you all know.

Anyhoo, my point is please don't fear someone stealing ideas. There is a far greater danger in *not* getting your stuff publicized than there is in having it stolen.

For the scrapbook, I will obtain permission from everyone whose faces are in the photos, if I must. That's how the big boys do it. :)

Adam always does an incredible job taking pictures and covering the event for Haunted Illinois. I will also be taking pictures and taking some videos with my nifty digital camera for my website City Blood-Ohio Haunt Reviews and The Halloween Database. There should be plenty of coverage from press, but the more pictures that are taken the better.

Copy,

Adam has one of the most comprehensive haunt sites around, he travels all over the globe seeing haunts and stuff of that nature and then pretty much reveiws or reports on it,TW being one of them.

Best thing i could do is direct you to his website, you will find all sorts of crazy stuff there!

www.hauntedillinois.com


His reveiw from his trip to Transylvania is awesome and definetly worth checking out and reading.

And as a past haunter that worked in Illinois i can say his information to me as a haunt manager was top notch!! I actually thought about doing what he does in Illinois down here in NC but quickly changed my mind when i talked to him, he has countless hours and money out of his pocket doing what he does. He is also one person i can truly say from the bottom of my heart that gives all haunts a good fair well explained reveiw.

Out of all the forums boards on the web Adams is my favorite hangout, but then again i personally know everybody on those boards.

Not trying to sound like im sticking my nose up anybodys butt but as a good freind of Adams i can say he is as passionate as any haunter out there when it comes to this industry.

At first i hated Adam, i was a newbie at a new haunt and when we hit the schene we did it big, our place was huge, he came through and gave us what at the time i thought was a lousy reveiw.
We called him on it, he drove down and walked the haunt with myself and the owner and pointed out his likes and dislikes.

Over the next two years he would come in all the time and he became a regular part of our family and just hang out with us. He helped us better our haunt a lot, when we lost our lease it was Adam and his website that helped a group of us pull off our haunt touring acting troupe.

He supplied us with info to contact haunt owners, their themes because he had seen them and a private message board for us to chat and plan our tours. To us he's a great asset and very close freind for doing what he did!

Im sure if you PM him he will probably tell you to push forward on your project regardless, im sure he'll want to see somebodyelses veiws of it as well.

Your scrapbook idea is different from what he does. Who knows i may have even read into wrong from the get go.

Katie, the way it's shaping up, it looks like there will be two scrapbooks. One will be "Rated R," the other "Rated PG."

That said, I think I would "fuzz out" any revealing body parts - unless they are of a man. ;)
