Last year during our haunt build, our electrical wizard pinged Bones and asked if he could help with a video project. This resulted in a pause in building while Bones went through our makeup supplies, transformed himself into a disagreeable older gentleman, and Became! A! Star!
Dane and his team – Team Ventura, so you know it’s awesome – participate in Public Media Network‘s contest, Cinema 2880 Film Festival, in which participants have 48 hours to create a short film that must contain certain elements or words. Team Ventura does a great job, and I’m always wicked impressed by what they can get done in such a short amount of time. (Last year’s video is here. It took first place in Facebook Viewers Choice.)
This year, they needed a grim reaper, and they were planning to film that scene in the same location where we were having our haunted event, so..meant to be!
My desire to take photos was discouraged by the crew.
Bones…er, Death… was, as always, a professional.
Shooting happened pretty fast (48 hours includes all the editing/production time, and the team had varied filming locations). The final result may be found here…this year, Team Venture took First Place in Facebook Viewers Choice again – yay! – and third place at the festival. 🙂
