In case you didn't get the memo, 2018 is the year of the Storm Witch. The Graveyard was scheduled to host a Swamp Witch between the two IT years, but our lead actress wanted a character that could be beautiful as well as creepy. The costume design is still in conceptual design but will wind up being a mashup of these looks -
As our witch will being casting lightning, wind, rain and snow, it's going to be a heavy practical effects year. My hail machine was over-ruled because of some BS about 'endangering' small children by bombarding them with ice pellets. Whatever.
Our Storm Witch will be storm casting the old fashioned way, by whistling and singing. We'll start to preview the Storm Witch leitmotif in early october, triggered by a IR motion sensor. That trigger will cause the Graveyard's lampost to flicker and play the whistled theme in a very distant tree mounded speaker.
Here's the first 7ish minutes of the rough mix to the 42 minute 'Waltz of the Storm Witch' -
Be careful what you whistle while walking in the woods at night...
