Hey Madame Leota! Just wanted to say I appreciate your recent posts on some of these more controversial threads. I don't really want to feed the beast, but I think you're 100% on base. I'm betting the principal of this school is less concerned about the actual Halloween traditions and just wants to avoid being caught between the loons on either side of the argument.
I read a post where you were asking about corn stalks. Here is one idea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXKmwGGcUcA&feature=plcp I started with this, but picked up leaf stems from dollar tree, six for a dollar. It was eaiser than what Allen suggested. I also found some fake corn at Hobby Lobby, I used coupons. So it was easier.
Thanks Madame Leota! I've never been around any set design but I've been a camera guy for over 30 years. I plan on doing a real shoot in higher end HD this year but we will see how the weather and my health are when it comes time.
