You have to have a few gatherings that may cost a couple hundred dollars in materials or in hiring outside actor trainers. You have to eliminate, what will I be wearing, what will I be saying and doing, who else does this. And what is my motivation? You will gather money for Christmas or for that charity you want to support or buy an Xbox when this is all over.
Cursory conversations can be just the real wanting to see what the haunt looks like for free rather than actually show up and work. So rather than give dozens of free haunt tours and the questions are answered, it is the art of what brings the haunt to life, the acting and the make up, the participating in set decor to claim their territory. Then there is an obligation and a peer pressure to show up. Perhaps coaching working toward acting in a room, not meant to be excluding everyone but working through all the issues they may be having about acting like an idiot or perhaps messing around with the dark side which isn't the case. It is fun, creative, hands on and you make money. You meet and hang out with others, are part of something and are welcome to come participate. As opposed to give me your name and phone number and be here October 15th.
I'm seeing a girl scout emblem on you facebook page, maybe there is a merit badge that is a pink skull you are earning, there is an after party, pizza every night that your mother never gets for you. Still dressing out scenes and going through the boxes of props is a you wanna see what happens here? You have to lend a hand. And then there is an overall curiosity to what customers will react to this or that item or when you say or do something. Then they are hooked and want to show up. If it isn't for money there needs to be some life experience and time invested in that to make it not be a chore of some kind. You can't let it up to them to create that on their own.
So Bob made this especially for you, this is going to be yours to use, It is going to be pretty cool when you do this and walk over here. It's a sales job. Advanced thinking is like a Japanese factory where teams come up with their own imput and put things into reality and see how it works, intellectual engagement and participation. To some degree many of these things may add a lame factor to your haunt but, it is a balance between engagement with the customers and 45 people in masks pointing to where the next door is.
Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax.
