Travis Gray from The House Modesto in Modesto, CA brings us this Halloween stage design.
They built a house from a previous year and have been adding on to the set ever since. The house was built onto a rolling platform so that it is easily movable. By using the white fences it gave them a sense of a yard outside of the house.
Rented some hay from a local farm to add to the fall look.
The graveyard was made out of Styrofoam graves. The big graves in the back were made from styrofoam, while the little ones were bought at a local halloween store. They used moss and netting found at a local craft store to add to the floor of the graveyard. They added two painted white trees with some metal fencing in the back to give it another layer of depth. The barn was new to this year. Total cost to build was about $350. They added a cheap old fixture above the door with a short circuit light bulb to give them a flickering effect. They stained the trim with some random wood stain they had.
The house was lit using S4 fixtures and some moonlight color gels and gobos. They found spooky gobos at Apollo and purchased 6 for $10 a piece. It added an element to the room they’ve never really had before. They also created a star look around the room with some disco balls that they had.
