VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! - Haunted Attraction Crew
For event happening the weekend of October 17-19, 2008
In the Orlando/Casselberry/Sanford central Florida area
Nephilim United Productions, Inc., a corporation not for profit dedicated to promoting "dark" art, fashion, literature, film and music, is planning our first event for October 2008. Volunteers are URGENTLY needed as we create a charity haunted attraction to serve as both a fundraiser and our first edutainment introduction to the community. This will be a multi-element haunted event, and we need dedicated volunteers at all levels of experience and skill sets to bring everything together.
The attraction will combine educational, historic and cultural content with classic handcrafted scares, keeping tech effects costs to a minimum while relying on artistry, enthusiasm, and old fashioned fun and showmanship to provide family entertainment value and personal service unequaled by large "mega haunts" in the area. The event is presented for entertainment purposes, and as such will call for the creation of "sideshow gaffs" and oddities created through a variety of means. Local artists will also be needed to create the event, which will showcase the work of these artists.
Funding for the event will be secured through individual donations and sponsorship by businesses and organizations. Sponsoring organizations receive acknowledgement, advertising, and promotion as outlined in our sponsors’ information packet (available upon request).
The primary theme for the guided-tour haunt is "The History of Halloween and Horror." Scare-laden rooms will illustrate key points in this timeline: the Celtic origins of Halloween; early horror literature; a homage to the circus sideshow; classic movies; and television. The overall framing script will be the operation of a "Traveling Spook-Show Carnival" of the style popular in America from the 1940's to the 1960's. Rooms in the sideshow will therefore also include a spook show séance, a museum of art and oddities, a "Treasures of Egypt" room, a chamber of horrors, a freak show, and a stage area for live performances of magic and theatrics. That’s the plan. We will need a lot of help to build the sets and staff these rooms.
Thank you! We look forward to working with you and we will contact you shortly.
