Good point... however we all know you can't renovate a haunted house for no cost. No show is going to pay 100k or 50k or even 25k to renovate someones haunted house. I think a lot of the home shows you have sponsors of the show who give product but in most cases like say Vanilla Ice Project he buys the houses he's paying to renovate them because he's going to re-sell them. He's getting paid to renovate them on TV is all... but he's still paying.
If we come to YOUR haunted house and we renovate your haunted house that could be a life changing experience... your haunt could go from bad to awesome in two weeks. It can happen...
Look at this way... I talked to a guy remains nameless and his haunt detail wise isn't very exciting. He's got one of those typical haunts that goes to the shows and buys stuff and throws it where ever he thinks it might look good. I asked how much do you spend... he said 40k 50k every year at TW.
Okay lets start with that... I can spend 50k really fast btw, but we'll roll with 50k, we can do more to make your haunt better than ANYTHING you could buy at TW and that is fact. Your haunt wouldn't even look the same ... what is better 5 animations, a few props, a few masks, a couple of these and thats or your entire haunt renovated to look like its suppose to look? What is more of a game changer?
So basically we'll be looking for haunts who want to renovate their haunts who have say 75k who want to make their haunt look amazing, or maybe they need to make a cool lobby lets say and they have 25k so there is a budget and we try to work within it for the show... starts off looking one way and ends up another way.
In the end there is only one result BAD ASS!
So that year you don't go to TW and buy anything... oh well your haunt will look a million times better for it. Look at me I didn't buy anything at TW this year... nothing. The only thing I bought was that inflatable from Scarefactory he took my money and guess what I still don't have it yet... go figure. So yeah nothing. I spend most of my money on set design, paint, concrete, ummm real props you get from junk stores, not store bought animations so to speak. Yes we have those things to but they only enhance what we do... so I'm assuming you already have a lot of that stuff great... we'll make that stuff look better as well. We'll repair animations, we'll build out rooms, we'll make the place look totally different.
