Jeff and Chris Davis, and their talented crew, are the creators of The Davis Graveyard, a popular Halloween yard display in the Portland, Oregon area, which has been in operation for over ten years.

It has been featured in magazines, as well as showcased in FearNet.com’s “Haunts Across America” series. The Davis Graveyard coordinates the Haunters Video Awards and DVD Set, now in its 12th year, a compilation of home haunter videos from all over the world that are judged and given awards. The Davis Graveyard offers seminars and teaches local workshops, sharing their prop building techniques at summer workshops.

Inspired with the recent developments in 3D printing and 3D scanning software, the Davis’ took old idea of a singing bust prop using a Styrofoam wig head and a video projector and turned it into something that is extreamly lifelike and realistic Using only a smartphone and access to a 3D printer. During this demonstration, Jeff and Chris Davis of Davis Graveyard will walk attendees through the process of making a talking/singing bust using Photogrammetry, a 3D Scanning phone app and a 3D printer to create the form of the actor’s face. With only the camera in your smartphone the Davis’ will show attendees how to film the actor giving reciting the rules or telling the story of the attraction and then project it onto the bust using a simple LED projector.
