Jon Hyers

Halloween and Haunted House
Special effects made easy

When it comes to haunting, I know all to well that we die hard haunters go to great lengths to design and build the creepiest, the scariest, and the most unbelievably horrific haunt sets we can achieve. Whether Jon Hyers Virtual 3d FXwe're a home haunter or the owner of a professional haunted attraction, one thing we all share in common is our willingness and our drive to put on the best display or the best show around. We're always ready to do something the haunt down the street isn't doing. Cause finding new and innovative solutions to our haunting needs is what not only advances our industry, but sets our haunt apart from the rest of the pack; a necessity in areas with many haunted attractions. When our customers have options, what are they going to see in your haunt that they wont see in another? You know we have to ask ourselves this time and time again.

Well for the 2010 haunt season, I got an email from a man that I would honestly say had some concepts for creating effects or animations that will soon prove to be breakthrough material for the haunt industry. I'm virtually sure of it. And the concept is...."Virtual 3D"....and the master mind is Jon Hyers.

About ten years ago he began not only going onsite to major attractions state wide as well as a haunted museum in Russia, he also began marketing tools to teach others how to accomplish amazing effects. Although these effects can and have been used among independent film makers, the haunt industry I assure you will not be taking the backseat for this ride. Instead the Halloween and haunt industry has proven to not only been able to use products and services of Jon Hyers, it will prove that there is definitely a place among our industry and in our haunted attractions for "Virtual 3D" Special Effects for years to come.
