As someone that goes to haunts and trains actors, I'm curious as to the methods that haunt owners use to train their actors. Do you let veteran actors apprentice novices? Do you watch how-to videos? Hire people to come in and train? Let them fend for themselves? Now that convention season is over, I'm starting to see local haunts beginning to advertise the need for actors (no experience necessary). I guess they'll have them ready by September...

The large theme-park haunt I used to work for failed to provide any serious training for their new actors last season and I heard a lot of complaints about how it took a couple nights before anyone really got into their routine. (There was a lot of turnover last year)

(As always, if you need someone to help with your actor training, I'm always for hire. Drop me a line for details...)
