I won't be able to enter, I leave for LA tomorrow and last minute travel changes had me solely focused on my trip versus my entry. On the up side, even though I discovered the challenge a bit too late, it really did inspire me and I went out shopping and promptly found some incredible finds at a thrift store - including a working digital projector for $30. I'll still make this prop and more. Although I was super excited to enter this contest, my LA trip (for those who don't know, I'm going to a "pitch fest" where I'll be pitching my horror screenplay, Kiss Me Dark, as well as VooDoo Baby) is a huge step in working in movies, writing and directing.
I love what I've seen so far, so keep it coming! You guys are fantastic!
Thanks Zombie-F! It really did inspire me, not just for one prop, but 3 others! Writing/movies is my only job now, so whenever I can put all focus on it, I do. The great thing is, I have all of October to work on props! I'm trying to be more active on this board in the "off" months as well so next time - I think I'll give it a go! Hopefully this weekend goes great and next week I'm posting that I actually got several execs to read my script.
I am working at a haunt tonight, so if anyone submits and it is not approved before midnight, don't be alarmed. As long as the submit time is before midnight, you will be approved first thing in the AM when I wake up.
C'mon party peeps! Gets dem last minuet entries submitted! Due day is today!:googly:
The Technicolor brain, revealed! Originally, I was going to make a disembodied cyber-zombie skull in a bucket/life support container, but the mold (in mache) didn't turn out like I wanted it and skull sculpt was getting too expensive & time consuming... it is being stored in my freezer to maintain freshness... seems like some of us were thinking very much alike...
I finished most of my electronics for my brain. Thought I would post it here so that it doesn't get confused with my entry (this stuff would through me over budget). The plasma tower turned out great for a $4 prop.
