I am very pleased to announce TWO Halloween videos today! Finally you can experience what it was like to attend our grandest Halloween extravaganza yet! The Main Event is 46 minutes long so set aside some time to watch, but I promise it will be worth it! 🙂 I should have counted my editing time, since with seven separate camera angles, synchronizing three audio tracks, and adding other highlighted content together to tell the whole party story, it feels like I spent almost as many hours of video editing documenting everything as I did to create all the portraits, ghosts, and main event content for the party! Hope you enjoy watching!
Enjoy the perspective of a party guest at Halloween 1914 hosted by Miss Hermione G. Wells as you are immersed in the interactive mystery told in 7 short acts over 2 hours, with a giant glowing-green-ectoplasm-powered steampunk device showing the “mad scientist” transmitting from Europe, the dead psychic medium leading the séance from inside an astral gateway vortex, and five ghosts summoned inside the large crystal ball using the positive mental energy of all the party guests participating in the séance…and there was even live interaction with Sir William Crookes and the Glowing Ghostly Guardian!
Please watch the Main Event first so you understand everything, then you may continue with your bonus video today that reveals all the clues to solve the Studying Spirits quiz!
To summon the spirits in the séance led by the Webmistress via the Spirit Materializer built by Miss Hermione G. Wells, the party guests needed to identify the ghosts haunting the castle by using anything they could find, including family portraits, two “ancient” illuminated manuscript books, and some other clues…even the Tasty Tombstone cookies! Here are all the ways you could find the true names of each of the seven spirits…
