The most popular

class choices from our survey were, in order:

Molding and casting
video effects
graveyard overview

We looked at our schedule and just could not find enough weekends to fit all those in and make stuff of the yard for this year. So the top three classes were the winners. We have a complete schedule on our website. If you are in the area, we would love to have you stop by and join us.

When we heard that Ed from Nightmare Factory haunt at the Oregon School for the Deaf was going to host the first West Coast Haunters Convention and he needed speakers, we had found the solution for the other two classes.

So, we were able to add our Video Effects and Graveyard Overview classes, you just have to drive to Salem, about an hour away from Portland.

So, Husband and I offering two classes at the convention next weekend. The first one is the whirlwind "How to Build a Better Cemetery" presentation....where we run through the whole yard process in about an hour. We did this presentation a few years ago a Hauntcon in Detroit and it was great fun. We get asked about it often.

The second class is the "Video Effects" class. Here we teach you how we make all of our projection ghost effects. This is also a really popular class at Hauntcon and the process was also featured in Haunted Attraction Magazine a few years back.

So right now I am in the process of dusting off and updating both of those presentations for the convention as well as a few other things for the event. So, I apologize that I am a bit lax on my blog entries :)


  1. I wish I could come to these classes. They look great!

  2. corpsifying!!!!! I'm not sure I needed that word added to my vocabulary.... but now I got to find a way to use it in a conversation. OH wait! "sorry, I can't go to the mall today, I'm corpsifying a good friend??" GIGGLE

  3. I think we have an entry for the next edition of the Webster's Dictionary.

    And on a totally unrelated note -- I spotted Frog on the Pumpkin on a list of movie bloggers complied by Total Film magazine. Sorry for the long url, but:

    You're on page 6.


  4. Andrew - thanks that is way cool...oh, boy I guess I should review more movies :D

    Judith....yes, in my house, as Yetch pointed out as he was reading my to-do list on the fridge, "you know you are at haunters house when they use corpse as a verb." :D
