Mystery Manor was first conceived near the end of Pinhead's first project in 2006, The World Project. From that time the project idea evolved and developed through Project Two Tell a Story. Project Two showed some great talent and skill, feeling editors might be ready for a challenge Mystery Manor officially became Project 3. This advance knowledge even allowed for a teaser to conclude The Second Annual Golden Pinhead Awards. Mystery Manor launched in January 2008. It opened with a full opening video to set up a story the editors would have to conclude. Pinhead returned as a murder suspect, amongst a full cast of other suspects. Besides offering more characters, a set of backgrounds were also included making Mystery Manor a unique project. There was much anticipation for a high turnout. A list of known participants can be found below, some people signing up months before the project launched. The Mystery Manor opening became one of the post popular downloads, and the cast and background files closely matched its popularity. As the due date loomed, it suddenly became clear although many editors had planned to participate they did not complete their projects. The projects failure caused the cancellation of some planned bonus features, like a DVD style commentary for the opening. It also put any possibility of a fourth project at risk. The clips submitted are superb.


Project three Mystery Manor is pretty exciting. The beginning of our story is provided. Watch carefully, because your job will be to finish what we started. Tell the story any way, shape, or form you wish. No doubt lots of skills and techniques will be learned and used this time around. Certainly some of the advanced editors may jump right in, but beginners don't be put off. Ask questions stretch your abilities! All entries are welcome! Don't worry about prizes either. Beginners have won in the past, so everyone has a sure fire chance. Enjoy the show and we can't wait to see your stories!

1) Remember, the purpose of this is to tell a story.  A good story is worth more than a million special effects.  And remember to have some fun in the process.


2) Use of any video editing, graphics, photo or animation program is permitted and in fact, encouraged!


3) Several materials are provided on the downloads page.  They include everything you need to tell your story – backgrounds, characters, etc.  All you need is an imagination.
