Hire Me

Last Updated: 9/27/2022

Some of the services I offer include:

  • Custom Sound Effects – Why settle for playing Track 15 from “Scary Sounds of Halloween” when you could have a sound effects loop that is customized for the scene? I can work with you and create something truly unique, making the audio match what’s actually in the room. (My audio has been used at Sleepy Hollow, Linn’s Supermarket, Ankeny Haunted Barn, and Tormented Souls, among others.)
  • Custom Videos – Perhaps your haunt needs a custom pre-show video that goes over the rules before your guests enter. Maybe you want a custom video loop to be running on a TV set in a show scene. Maybe you want a full moon to project on a wall. I’ll help you track down something already available, or custom create video for you if I can. (My videos have been used at Sleepy Hollow and Ankeny Haunted Barn.)
  • Audio System Installation – A boom box in the corner is a great way to get started, as it having a big set of stereo speakers booming throughout the haunt. But, for a small investment, you can purchase cheap off-the-shelf amplifiers and speakers and wire up your entire haunt with multi-channel audio. I can even do full installations for you. (I helped install audio at Sleepy Hollow, and have done other installations at Ankeny Haunted Barn, Tormented Souls and Linn’s Haunted House.)
  • Lighting System Installation – If you are tired of swapping out colored light bulbs and moving around strobe lights, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Low cost off-the-shelf RGB lights are available on Amazon (and even locally) that can be programmed to any color or intensity. Install them throughout your haunt and you’ll never change a bulb again — just reprogram the lights to match the scene. OR, move up to full computer-controlled DMX lighting systems that can simulate lightning flashes, flickering candles, or electric shocks. They can even be programmed to act as an entrance timer (letting your ticket taker know when they can send the next group). And the best part? These days cheap DMX lights can be found for under $20, and control computers for around $100 (no PC needed — just power on and it goes). I can help you set this all up and program it. (This system was used at Ankeny Haunted Barn, with DMX lights in every room, and some of them running off a wireless DMX system.)

Got an idea? Let me know, and I’ll help if I can. I have worked on projects for Ankeny Haunted Barn, Linn’s Haunted House, Sleepy Hollow Haunted Scream Park and Tormented Souls Haunt. What can I do for you?
