Go Fog Yourself: Special Effects and You
with Scott Tater Lynd

Scott "Tater" Lynd

"Scott "Tater" Lynd like a lot of things, Video Games, Drinking, Telling stories, Haunted Houses and long walks on the beach. What he doesn’t like is writing about himself for convention bios, so please enjoy this totally made up list of things he has done. In his lifetime he has beat Super Mario Brothers blindfolded, beating Bigfoot in a game of checkers, creating a better scare than a chainsaw (something that he deemed the industry not ready for yet) and rode the Loch Ness Monster around the lake. While he is just 39, he started haunting at the young age of 8 with his father. He has traveled all around the country perfecting his craft and learning the ins and outs of the industry. Now officially on the run from the law and stalkers around the country "Tater" is going to share all his special effect knowledge with you.
