        Hello everyone. Its been awhile since I posted on the forums so let me refresh and re-introduce myself.

        My name is Travis Magee from Dallas, Texas. 31 years old and a long time haunted house enthusiasts. My goal is to one day start my own haunt, but in the meantime I volunteer alot of my time to my friends haunt called the 13th Street Morgue in Red Oak, TX.

        I am an artist. Ive been drawing since the day I was born. (im pretty sure of it, haha). I went to the Art Institute of Dallas, worked for a couple of design studios and ad agencies, now im pretty much a freelance graphic designer and entrepreneur. I prefer to do my own thing so I can go after the markets that I like. Im not a person who just learned how to use Photoshop who thinks they can create designs for people and expect to get paid for it. First and foremost, I am an artist who just simply uses computer programs as tools. From Graphic Design to digital and traditional Illustration.

        One day I would love to just focus on the Haunt Industry, but until I get enough steady clients I continue to work alot with the music, entertainment, and fashion industries to pay the bills.

        Im just a haunt junky who cant get enough of it. Im thankful for so I can get my fix all year `round.

                      My name's Bob Harper and I'm a veteran writer, producer and performer of all things audio for over 25 years. I began doing custom sound and broadcast work for the haunted attraction industry in 1993 and continue to do so, around the country, for some really great folks in the business. Some of their haunts are simply amazing.

                      Although the majority of my normal broadcast and custom sound work is retail and corporate etc., "Haunters" are indeed my favorite clients! Unlike sterotypical business folks, you're all fun to work with, imaginative and willing to take risks. I admire anyone who puts his or her butt on the line in the entertainment business and truly appreciate all the work and energy it takes to do so professionally!

                      I do work for all size haunted attractions and amusement parks and for those with tight budgets, I do have a few generic trax and CDs available at that are truly network quality for a fraction of custom work.
                      You can audition various tracks as well and some of the methods to my madness.

                      I wish ya'll a great '07 season...
                      Imagine a horror flick wihout Great Sound.
                      Now, imagine your haunt without Great Sound.

                            Well my name is Brian, i'm 18 and reside in Detroit, Michigan which people like to consider the Haunt capital of the "Haunted Attraction Capital of the World" due to the number and quality of Haunted events in the metro area.

                            I'm a Haunted Attraction Enthusiast and have worked in a couple myself. My dream is to one day own a haunted attraction myself but we'll see how that goes since it's a lot easier said than done.

                            You'll see me roaming around here typically around the Halloween season or whenever i get that Haunted Attraction "itch" which is why i'm roaming currently.

                                I'm Nathan, owner of Turbidite Manor. I have an extensive background in professional entertainment, spanning from performance to directing, tech to producing... mostly in live presentation. I'll be posting a full online portfolio site sometime soon if anybody is really interested. Having such diversity in my past helps bridge the gap between the different disciplines production requires, as I usually can speak everyone's language (designers, technicians, performers, etc) and keep things in perspective.

                                I strive to do more than scare people... I try to immerse guests in what I like to call the Living Storybook, communicating what some may consider a morality play (without being too preachy) through the use of the haunt medium.

                                That too deep? OK, I do like to scare people too. ;o) But I plan the scares very carefully, with plenty of setup. Most of the attraction is scenic and illusion based, and it seems to be working pretty well so far... if folks want chainsaws and beheadings, this ain't the place. I think of Turbidite Manor more as theatre than anything else, and run it accordingly.

                                Though the story is solid, it's all still developing for the audience, even 20 years into the process. Hey, if I had all the resources one could ever want, I'd do it all now... but for the time being I give the crowd what I can. Some love it, some don't get it... but hey, I don't try to please everyone - it's just like that when you present something few are trying.

                                Glad to be part of the forum now and hope to gain some new wisdom. Cheers!
