You can only use zombies or vampires so many times before they start to feel stale. After working as an actor in haunts, Kyle Potter became a full-time tour guide leading ghost tours through his own company Atypical Tours in New Orleans, Baltimore and New York City - and found that the little-known stories in history can be more terrifying (and marketable) than anything we can dream-up. In this session, Kyle will explain how to find suitable local history and stories; the best ways to build narratives around these stories for your haunt; and how to ensure you’re enriching and not exploiting those events to avoid issues later on. Leave this session with ideas on how to develop new, compelling stories for your 2021 haunt season.
