Freddy vs. Jason – Folding Bed

Replication of a folding bed gag from Freddy vs. Jason for Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights.  The effect is that there is a victim sleeping in the bed and Jason folds him in half by folding the bed. The frame is made from steel, and the two bed halves are on spring-loaded hinges to reduce performer fatigue. One side of the mattress has false legs attached and the other side has room for a performer with the transition being covered by bed sheets.

Mechanical and electronic effects for the pilot episode of Hellevator. Effects include the elevator button panel and associated controls, spring-loaded drawers, desks that fly open on command, and lockers that fling open by themselves.


Teleporter

An illusion that we designed and fabricated to look like a commercially available desktop teleportation machine. Any item up to 6″x6″x6″ can be made to disappear on command. Inside is lit with blue LEDs in addition to Arduino controlled white LEDs that create a chasing and strobing effect. In addition to the machine, the drawers under the tables were custom made for the application.
