Fenwright Manor is a multi- media Haunted House project that began in May of 1996. The physical aspect started as Halloween props and set decoration. The ultimate goal is for it to be constructed as a Spookhouse Attraction.

Scene Props: Old Mantle Clock

This heirloom clock has been featured in Hallowe'en set-ups and will be replicated for a scene in the attraction.

internal gears




Since the flash music player I use does not want to work properly, I have to add my music or sounds to slideshows or videos, so here's the clock chime and the hourly chime.

From The old Myspace profile

Rip Van Winkle and other stories

This is an old copy of "Rip Van Winkle and other stories" by Washington Irving.  It contains " The Legend of Sleepy Hollow".   It used to be listed among the volumes of the library and was on the "Artifacts" album from the Myspace profile

Where It All Began: Part 2

After that last post I decided to try and figure out the earlier concept drawing.  It's still crazy

Where it all began (sort of)

This is the second concept drawing  for the mansion
In commemoration  of the 15th anniversary of this project, I would like to present one of the earliest concept drawings of the mansion.  The first drawing( scribbled during Humanities class) was lost.  This drawing was created in late May or early June of 1996 in my 3D art class during 6th period.  It's pretty crude and insane, just a generic "haunted house" with a gargoyle water fountain off the side of the house(WTF???).  I just drew random things for this house and it would be confusing for people not in on the project.  I even threw that skeleton with a top hat from the cover of that poetry book  Nightmares by Jack Prelutsky, but you can barley see him.  I may post a few more concept pieces to get people excited about this project.
