    January 13th, I think this is a record as far as working over at the haunt site early. We took advantage of a pretty warm day yesterday to go over and start tearing down this facade in Pumpkin Alley. A new much larger, more detailed and insane looking one will take it's place. I need to get this one out of the way so I can take measurements and start on a scale model. I'll post that when it's finished with details so keep checking back.









    Here are some construction photos of last years build. Tim Bickford from Creative Cinema Video took the photos we gave him and made a quick slide show for our wrap party. I like looking back at the progress, it gets me motivated to start in and improve for this year. A night photo of this facade is at the end of the slide show.

    Below that is a scare scene clip. Tim will be giving a seminar this year at Transworld explaining how to capture scares like these in your haunt as well as the equipment used and editing techniques. I think it will be great, more videos to come on another thread. Tim does awesome work and is great at explaining how to get the results that you are after on tape.





    I also like looking back on the other threads to see how far we have come.

    The phoenix will rise from the ashes, lol!



    Check this out. It was finally time to revamp our logo. Here is the one I made years ago for the home haunt. It has been alright up until now but we definitely needed to take it to the next level.



    After some revisions here is what Brainstorm did for us. They always kick ass and did a great job!



    I made some tweaks on my own. Let me know your thoughts. The great thing about this is I can separate out the elements to make different and more simplified versions of this logo. For instance, I may want the pumpkin all by it self for a round button or other merchandise. I will need to make a black and white version with just the type for something like a car window decal or letter head.

    I couldn't figure out what about the second one was so appealing.

    I had a hunch and looked it up. I bet this was unconscious on Eric's part, but the red/orange over gold letters
    echos the treatment of the KISS Love Gun and Destroyer album art by Ken Kelly. It just has an effective command of attention.

    Laying that warm color of the letters over the blue really works as well, similar to Destroyer. I try to imagine those guys
    in the 70's with digital tools considering they were working in oil on board.

    The original image has a greater depth of detail and some elements look 'realistic' but the second treatment
    with the punched up bats and heavier color, to me, gives a feel that fits Haunted Overload. The large scale
    elements speak fantastical horror and the color treated logo is in line with that.

    Hats off to Brainstorm, the original artwork is incredible, just a great overall composition and texture.
