This was my short-lived, thoroughly rained-out contribution to the Great Pumpkin Project. Like an idiot I forgot my tripod for night shooting so all I procured was a couple of cellphone snaps.
Went back a second night with a new candle and tripod and someone had smashed him into 100 pieces.
This is just off the square, downtown Franklin on an always spooky no-car stretch of road.
Lots of cars pass by this at night so I suspect it probably caught a few random eyeballs during it's brief life..

Here she is.. The ghost lady that started the madness..
Ms. Spooky (as named by neighborhood kids who noticed her before we even started putting a light on her)..

Looking Back at Ireland/UK Trip

Stopped by the Flickr page and there were those pics from our trip to Ireland and England earlier this year. The graveyard photos are Highgate Cemetery, where so many Hammer Dracula scenes were filmed. Also featured is Bray Studios and Black Park - home of Hammer Horror as well as The Oakley Court aka Frankenfurter Castle, also a Hammer haunt..

Vine-Man and Old School Orange Lights at Dusk

Only at dusk is it possible to get doorway lighting effects and the man-in-the-vines in one shot.
Once we start placing spot lights he'll be featured a bit more..

Being a Creeping Cruds Roadie Does Not Pay

I feel bad for this guy. He takes care of our gear day in, day out - but we just forgot to feed him!

Something Wicked This Way Comes..

I swear I do not know what was making this shadow on the lawn chair!

#Drawlloween 7 Haunted House

This one took the most time for some reason. Wanted to basically zoom a spooky doorway with a distant figure. "Finger drawing" led to something else entirely. So you get this funky blue cabin..

#Drawlloween 6 Pumpkin

Always a favorite topic!

#Drawlloween - 5 - Werewolf

LOL - I'm keeping "painting time" down to 15/20 minutes on these - using a finger sketch app on iPhone. Any resemblance to art is purely coincidental.

Dr. Gangrene 2015 Halloween PSA filmed at Spooky Franklin!

This Dr. Gangrene PSA was filmed a few weeks back by director Cameron McCasland and his team here at the Spooky Franklin house! We weren't starting decorations just yet so a few quick props were grabbed for the shoot. Maybe they'll come back and film in deep October!
Should be running on Nashville TV and abroad in the coming days...

#Drawlloween - Day 4 - Vampire

#Drawlloween Day 3 - Goblin

What's a goblin? As far as I'm concerned it's a blueish skeleton guy in a green hooded outfit.

#Drawlloween Day 1

Ok, the finger sketch app is pretty fun. It's been a while and I make no claims as to knowing what I'm doing!
If any of my friends jump in on #Drawlloween I'll post their stuff as well.

Drawlloween 2015

Ok I'm gonna give it a shot this year.. I have downloaded a  handy finger-sketch iPhone app that I will use the 31 days to attempt to learn properly.
