I have decided on an overall theme for the Spectral Window. I was originally going to do a space-based theme similar to the ultra-creepy Dead Space video game. However after thinking long and hard about the age of the trick-or-treaters that visit my house, I decided that it was probably a better idea to go with something more "All Ages".
So along those lines I am going with traditional "boogies" like Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, etc. I am still working on the production design so that I can effectively marry 3d backgrounds with 2d characters. I am using Lightwave, Cinema 4d and 3ds Max for most of the 3d elements. There are some great Halloween modeling and rendering tutorials online that I have used before to create Halloween objects, that I will call on for some of the sets and props. Other things will be unique to this production.
So onward we go.
