Halloween Horror Nights Paper Model Kits...by me!

I usually try to offer some sort of Halloween goodies at this time of year, but I've been very busy with "other" projects lately, which have taken all of my Halloween project time.
Univeral Studios, Orlando asked me to create a couple of paper model versions of their Halloween Horror Nights haunted house facades, which will be offered on the HHN site.
Well, the first kit has been released! It is "ScreamHouse: Resurrection".

"Through blood, bone and ash, evil has risen again.
Abandoned for years, this gothic mortuary contains the eternally 
tormented souls of the Caretaker’s victims. Aided by a
cultish group of Followers, the Caretaker assures
that you will enter on your own two feet,
but leave sealed in a casket."

This is a relatively simple model to build, and it is only 3 inches deep, so it will fit nicely on a shelf or mantle.

I'm Back Home

What was originally supposed to be a four-week gig at Universal, Orlando turned into a four month gig, and what an amazing four months is was! Truly the best work experience I have ever had! The people I worked with in the art and design department are not only amazingly talented, they are also extremely nice and fun to be around, and what could be cooler than being totally immersed in all things Halloween Horror Nights? 
Not only did I work on HHN web site graphics. I was also involved with many other aspects of the Halloween Horror Nights productions, such as creating an animation for "Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure", creating a variety of HHN park signs and 3D displays, and even making a very short appearance in the "Share the Scare" online video, playing a victim of "The Storyteller"!

Below are a few shots of my 1 second of fame in Universal, Orlando's "Share the Scare"
Halloween Horror Nights video.  The third frame is the flash of my eyes as my tongue is ripped out!

September 26th marked the two-year anniversary of Haunted Dimensions. Thanks for the visits! I could have never imagined the success of this site when I first created it!

Now that I'm back in my Pennsylvania routine, you should expect more frequent updates and projects.
