    Hey guys! Name's Bryce Ring out of the Gurnee are in Illinois. I'm the co-founder of (new for 2012!) Nightmare Productionz. We're a group of 5 people with a passion for Halloween looking to starting a new event next year in the NE IL/ SE WI area. I have 7 years experience in the haunting industry, but in my book I'm still a new guy for sure. With that said, any and all advice to help me out is appreciated!

    I look forward to meeting people and getting advice/ideas from the forums here, seems like a swell place! Feel free to contact me with anything and everything at nightmareproductionz@gmail.com

    BOO! From Arkansas.

    My name is Dewayne and my wife and I / family have been doing haunted parties for many years. I built 90% of my props using methods from Terror Syndicate and other old books that have been given to me that doesn't even have covers anymore! (OOLLLDD)

    I'm 35 years old. Married with a 2 year old daughter that loves our props. She calls most of them "Bone Bone" So now, whenever we're out and about, if there's a skull or bone somewhere she'll let you know! BONE BONNEEE!

    I've worked at a local haunt YEARS ago. Back when I was bout 18 or so. Worked one season, but never got a chance to go back. We are now looking to do a full blown haunt for 2012. We did a party a year or so ago with an actual 4 room haunt + graveyard that you had to go through in order to get to the party. At the end, folks were asking "Wheres the donation box?"

    I'm glad I found the site, looks like a ton of information to get me started. Thanks for letting me in on the site.

    I am new to Hauntworld but have been haunting on a small scale for many years. After starting a small haunt in VA a few years ago, we have grown consistently and this year I decided to make this a serious business. I have more than 30 years theatrical experience as sound engineer, lighting designer, and set designer so I am bringing a lot of experience to the industry with me.

    Our haunt The Plague is expanding this year but we are still only open two nights. Next year we will be open several more weekends and expanding with a second and possibly third attraction, in a very large camp ground. Think haunted camping.

    I build a lot of my own props, but I also invest in the larger props through Haunt vendors and prop houses from the film industry (I bought a bunch of props last year from a prop house that went up for auction). I love this business, and the whole family gets involved. My oldest daughter does my art and marketing, my middle child does ticket sales and helps with makeup, and my son does the hauling, heavy lifting, building, and is my right hand man all year long. That's what makes this business all the better; haunting as a family!

    Hello everyone. I've been reading here for a bit but just got my account activated. I have always had a love for haunted attractions and being a part of them. It goes back to when I was about 6 years old probably. I've been involved in a few amateur haunts in the past, but this year I have been hired as an actor at Corner of Chaos in NJ. I'm really excited to get things started this weekend.

    Have a great season everyone!

    Experience: This will be my second full season


    --How did it all get started?
    Well one year when I was about 10 I asked my mom if she could take me to a haunted house, so she did. I went to Phobia and I was majorly scared out of my guts. After that night I just had a little bit of curiosity about haunts, and when I found out one of my Mom's friends worked at a volunteer one I jumped to it. I work there now and I love it (:

    Hello from Scenic Art Productions

    Hello Hauntworld,

    I'm Robert Travis owner of Scenic Art Productions. I have been building theatrical props and sets, themed environments, displays/trade show booths, and signage of all types for about 25 years. In 2003 I decided to start my own company, Scenic Art Productions. The company took off faster than I had thought getting jobs working on large subdivision entryway signs and some themed elements for theme parks and attractions. I have worked on The Scooby Doo and the Haunted Mansion Ride at Kings Dominion, The Italian Job Stunt Track at Kings Dominion and Canada's Wonderland, as well as MagiQuest in Myrtle Beach. I have been interested in breaking into the haunted attraction industry for a few years now and found the Hauntworld Forum site and thought I would try to see what happens. I look forward to talking with you soon.

    Hello, my name is John Schwarz.

    I'm not as familiar to this website as many I see here, are. However, I am very familiar with the Haunt Industry. I have been in association since 1998. During the Fall season you can find me at Splatter Haus, located in Two Rivers, WI. www.splatterhaus.com

    On my spare time, I attend to other events and haunted houses' needs, by providing them with props, scenic designs, costumes, artwork, ect. I like to stay busy all year 'round. As a hobby, I can't resist but to create, be creative and try new things. More recently have launched a business, JSSJ Productions. The production will mainly focus on Entertainment, Arts & Scenic Design. (hold tight, there will be a more proper introduction to the business in the near future.)

    lonely in florida

    My name is Joe and I have been bitten by the haunt bug going on four years now. Doing everything I can to get bigger and better every year. Started a home haunt 2 years ago and did everything I could to make it a commercial event in a backyard. 1200sq ft and nearly $50,000 in props, lighting and animatronics later I am looking to go pro. But I still am very hungry to learn, slowly becoming a jack of MOST trades but really enjoy set design and the art of the scare. Somehow I need to find time to learn how to sculpt and mold but I might need to clone myself for that.
    Thanks to Dark Ravens and Pale Nights awesome stuff and CFX for their masks....they and some others helped me blow peoples minds. Something about seeing a 4ft zombie dog and Palenights Zombie attack in a home haunt sets you apart a bit.
    Looking for more and giving it all back......

    Hiya, I started making props for The Long Branch Haunted Mansion back in 1986 when I was 18. These were mostly weapons and axes for the actors. From 1990 to 94 I made several props for Castle Dracula in Wildwood NJ. These ranged from Dungeon Implements to full sized figures. During that same time I also built a wide range of things for Orlando's Terror on Church Street and local seasonal Haunts.
    I got into the convention circuit in 2000 and also made puppeteered creatures and "Necronomicons'' for Low budget movies. This led me away from doing Dark Ride work for several years. I missed them, but few Haunts were left in my area .
    Recently I met Haunt legend Jim DeMuse who was responsible for such great Haunts as Brigantine Castle, Morbid Manor, and The Long Branch Haunted Mansion. This inspired me to get back into the Biz, expecially now that there is a rising intrest in them in the Wildwood area :mrgreen:
