    Hello!

    Hello my name is Jake Rich I am writing this statement as a declaration of my skills and abilities related to the haunted/Halloween industry and the field of special effects in the film industry. I have a bachelors of science in industrial design and special effects from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh that I received in March of 2005. I currently am in my 6th year of professional experience having worked for three different companies as well as starting my own business “The Brothers Rich F/X” allowing me to have worked with many different people and companies. The first company I worked with was Specter Studios in Pittsburgh, PA where I was a design and production associate for two years and was the top designer for the company when my position was eliminated due to downsizing. After that I worked for Gore Galore, originally I was hired to help increase the efficiency and overall production techniques at the shop along with being the in house sculptor/and lead artist/ painter. During the 3 ½ years I spent there I ran the shop in a managerial capacity for 2 ½ years coordinating the production and shipping of the orders, along with design/sculpting/and painting responsibilities for the company. I brought a variety of new technologies and techniques to the shop from my education and experience that I have mastered , this includes but is not limited to, painting, molding(plaster and silicone), fiberglass additives, and high volume production methods. During this time I also on my own time worked on over 13 independent films, 2 television commercials, 3 music videos, several stage performances and worked on designing and building 2 haunted houses. After being fired for reasons that I will not get into I took my skills and talents to join the team at Dream Scape Studios allowing me to continue the very career that I have put much time and effort into so that I may provide this industry good quality products. I have practiced art my entire life continually expanding my education and network in this industry my body of work speaks for its self and shows what my experience and skills are.

    Hello All,

    I'm Jim from Southern California. It's great to finally be part of this forum! I'm an amature mask maker and horror enthusiast. Ive worked as a professional artist (among other things) for over 20 years. I love getting a glimpse inside the professional side of haunting, and I hope to someday take part in helping create some of the outrageous stuff seen here. I admire everything you guys and girls do for the industry, its just so darn cool! Thanks!

    -Jim

That is probably because I've been promoting it mostly to home haunters for the past 2 years. Most of my interviews have been with home haunters such as Chris & Jeff Davis, Brent Ross and Steve Hickman, but I've also interviewed pro haunters Jim Weilock, Bruce Stanton and this month I feature an interview with Randy Bates of the Bates Motel and Pennhurst Asylum. We have many great segments that you should enjoy.
    Give the show a listen at Hauntcast.net

    I'm also, a veteran home/yard haunter. My haunt is the Village Mire.com which is mostly animatronic and static props. I plan on adding a walk through next year and incorporating more actors. Over the next 3 years I plan on learning all aspects of the haunted attraction industry and eventually opening a pro haunt of my own. I hope to learn a lot from you all.

    Stay scary,

    Chris

    So I have the hauntcast droid app, and yesterday a new show alert went off, which I've never heard before because my phone is on silent like 99% of the time, and scared the sh!t out of me. I was alone and my phone was sitting in a weird place [and i didnt know the volume was on.] hahah

    Figured you'd appreciate knowing you scared someone without trying :]

    Hey everyone! I'm Jon.

    I'm a musician (industrial music, mostly). I've been involved in the haunted attraction industry since 2000. I currently compose soundtracks for haunted attractions around the world. My most recent soundtrack was The Queen Mary's Dark Harbor in Long Beach, California this past October. I've also appeared in a few major artists' music videos like Combichrist and Winds Of Plague. On top of all that, I'm a monster at Knott's Scary Farm in Buena Park, California every October.

    And Dennis, I just looked at your Darksydesigns and how cool is that? I'm hoping to order something soon.
    Greetings, Willow. You can never know too much about haunting, I'd think

    Glad to hear that you like my store. Thank you very much
