Información para invitados

The Who’s Who and all the latest Hollywood gossip you need to know for your Lights! Camera! MURDER!!! party!

As the Oscars ends, the celebrities’ night has just begun!
Find out who has a golden ticket to the hottest event….

Vanity Affair—Millionaire. While Vanity’s wealth can’t buy them starpower, it can fund the most elaborate post-Oscar bash around. As the center of attention for the party, they will not let anyone steal the show.

Dana Darling—Hollywood diva.
 As a matriarch on the Hollywood scene, her award filled career does not include an Academy Award, even after 15 nominations. Will this be the year she changes that?

Angel Wood—Aspiring actress. This talented actress will do anything to get what she wants—whether it is an award, a leading role in a movie or the affection of a handsome actor.

Steffi Wood—Actress.
 As the little sister to Angel, Steffi has lived in her shadow far too long and is certain that she will make a name for herself before the night is through!

Jada Broken—Actress. A top-notch actress who often gets second-rate treatment, Jada’s engagement was disrupted by Angel Wood and now her acting career may be as well.

Barbie Doll—Pop star and aspiring actress. Barbie’s looks and her agent have gotten this aspiring actress far in life, but can they take her any further in Hollywood?

Natasha Gibson—Young actress. A favorite with the teen crowds, this young adult is serious about pursuing more mature acting roles…that is if nothing comes in her way.

Lola Talent—Latin diva. Best known for her singing career, Lola extended her celebrity career to include acting, perfumes and a clothing line. Now, with her husband aspiring to gain the same recognition, she is 100% behind him… or is she?

Mario Talent—Aspiring actor. As the husband of a diva, Mario has always done as he was told. Now that Mario is looking out for himself, his intentions may change.

Hobart Hughes—Director. Known as the brightest director of all time, everyone is desperate to be cast in his upcoming movie, A Fallen Angel. But his decisions may depend on a lot more than an actor’s talent.

Bobby Calling—Casting director. Frustrated by Hobart’s demands, Bobby is looking to cast the upcoming film, A Fallen Angel, as they see fit.

Penelope Hughes—Director’s wife. It is no secret that Penelope loves her husband’s money more than the man himself. After many years of marriage, Penelope knows how to use her power in Hollywood to get what she wants.

Princess Pop—Pop star.
 With Princess’ career on the verge of destruction, she is looking to reconstruct it any way she can.

Brady Comeback—Pop star. With a reunion tour set to take place, this star is on the cusp of a comeback… or the last chapter of his career.

Hunter Starr—Pop star and aspiring actor. Since the Man 2 Man hiatus, Hunter has experienced much solo success in both his personal and professional life. While his band may want to relive the glory days, he is currently experiencing new heights on his own.

Avery Scout—Talent representative. The “yes” person of Hollywood, Avery is responsible for launching some careers and sinking others.

How “Hollywood” Began

Hollywood is the center of America’s movie industry. It is part of the city of Los Angeles, in the western state of California.

In eighteen-eighty-seven, a man named Harvey Wilcox decided to sell some farmland he owned near Los Angeles. He hoped builders would put up houses there. Harvey’s wife thought the name Hollywood would be nice for the new housing development. She liked the sound of the word, although no holly trees grow in California.

At first, Hollywood was just a little town surrounded by orange trees and farms. But new technology would change it forever.

Inventors in the United States and Europe had become interested in the idea of making pictures that moved. Thomas Edison’s company showed the first moving picture machine in eighteen-ninety-three. Two years later, the Lumiere brothers of France showed the first simple moving picture in Paris.

American businessmen and artists hurried to explore the possibilities of the new technology. No one, however, suspected that movies would become the most popular kind of art in history.

Soon, theaters around the United States began showing short movies. In nineteen-oh-nine, some of the largest American movie-making companies joined together. They legally stopped other companies from using the new technology. So, independent movie producers moved away from the Atlantic coast, the center of movie-making at that time.

Independent movie producers wanted to go where eastern lawyers would not make trouble for them. They also wanted to go where there was warm weather and sunshine throughout the year. Hollywood was perfect.

The Nestor Company built the first movie studio in Hollywood in nineteen-eleven. Two years later, Cecil B. Demille produced the first long, serious movie in Hollywood. It was called “The Squaw Man.”

Director D. W. Griffith also arrived in Hollywood in those early years. He created new ways of using a camera to tell a story through moving pictures.

Soon, the quiet community of farms and orange trees had changed. By the nineteen-twenties, Hollywood had become the movie capital of the world.

The Academy Awards

When the Academy Awards began, it announced the winners 3 months in advance the first year. After the anti-climactic show, the academy would announce the results at the show, only releasing the winners to the media to have them printed the night of the awards show at 11 p.m. This tradition continued for over a decade until the Los Angeles Times printed the winners ahead of time, thus ruining the surprise in 1940.

Since 1941, the winners have been known to only the Academy and are printed in a sealed envelope until it is opened onstage.

A-List of what to serve (and how to serve it) for your A-Listers!!!

YOUR OSCAR FOOD

• Dress up your food and drinks with bowties.

• Find a tuxedo strawberry recipe here.

• Garnish your drinks with starfruit.

• Create your own cookie awards. Recipe and directions here.

• Rent a popcorn machine and generate movie-theatre aromas and buckets full of buttery popped popcorn.

MOVIE FOOD

You may want to consider some traditional fare spiced up with a few twists!

Popcorn: you can add flavor to microwave popcorn by making a spice mixture such as this one.

Pretzels: Buy frozen pretzels from the grocery store and serve with elegant sauces: plum, honey-mustard, gourmet cheese, etc.

Hot dogs: serve sausages of a higher variety.

Pizza: make it gourmet with vegetable toppings and some oil and vinegar on the top.

SERVE YOURSELF OPTIONS

Always a good idea when hosting!

Have a buffet of elegant hors d’oevres by creating or asking everyone to bring an Oscar-worthy appetizer.

Consider a “Popcorn Bar” where your guests add their own toppings to their popcorn.

Set up a “Candy Bar” for dessert. Have a number of your favorite movie candies from licorice to milk duds to Mike & Ikes. A fun and easy way to “treat” your guests and keep within your theme!

Bebidas

Upon arrival, offer champagne or other bubbly drinks for your guests to toast to their accolades.

– Coat the rim of your glasses with red-dyed corn syrup and let it dry ahead of time, to give it a dripping blood effect.

Create your own cocktails with movie titles in the names. Here is a link with 19 movie-named drink recipe options for you.

Creación de un spot fotográfico

Ofrezca a sus invitados un recuerdo inolvidable instalando una zona de fotos en la que puedan fotografiarse con el personaje.

Algunas sugerencias:

- Elija un lugar donde haya buena iluminación.

• The most popular backdrop for this mystery has GOT to be the red carpet!

- Puede hacerla tan elaborada o sencilla como quiera.

• Accessories and decorations can make a difference. Have some extra props on hand that your guests can pose with.

- Una forma fácil de crear un fondo es utilizar un "ambientador". Estos asequibles rollos de imágenes transforman su habitación al instante y constituyen un buen telón de fondo para su fotografía.

• Use props like a red carpet, tiaras, boas, lavish chairs, anything you can think of, to create a staged area for pictures.

- Asegúrese de que hay suficiente espacio para que todos quepan en el marco.

- Para las tomas individuales de los invitados, Designe a alguien que se encargue de las fotos a medida que vayan llegando sus invitados.
— Consider your character list and which character would fit the role of taking the picture. Ie, if you want mug shots, perhaps ask the investigator to be in charge of taking the pictures.

- Para una foto de grupo, Tome una justo antes de que se lea la introducción o justo después de que se lea la solución (antes de que la gente empiece a salir).
— These are two times when you can count on everyone being around and attentive.

Consejos

All of the information regarding how to run your Lights! Camera! MURDER! party can be found online at Night of Mystery. We highly suggest that you take time to look over our website and download the Lights! Camera! MURDER! preview file. Upon reading the introduction file of this Hollywood murder mystery game, it will give you a better understanding about how the parties are run and what to expect once you purchase a full mystery file.

Si todavía tiene dudas, el Preguntas frecuentes La página de Night of Mystery es un gran recurso o puede ponerse en contacto con nosotros.
Dado que nuestros juegos están escritos a medida para el tamaño del grupo (es decir, no creamos un misterio con 8 personajes y luego seguimos añadiendo más personajes), cada tamaño de misterio es único en sí mismo. Dicho esto, pasar de una versión de 10 a 15 a una de 15 a 20, no sólo añadirá más personajes, sino que cambiará el argumento de los personajes existentes, y viceversa al pasar de una versión más grande a una más pequeña.

Por ello, le sugerimos encarecidamente que obtenga un recuento de invitados antes de realizar el pedido formal. Puede hacerlo descargando una invitación, invitando a sus invitados y luego comprando su misterio una vez que tenga un número más exacto de personas que asistirán. Desafortunadamente, si te encuentras comprando la fiesta de tamaño incorrecto, tendrás que comprar otra versión del misterio para el tamaño que deseas, a menos que estés pasando de la versión de 15-20 a la de 20+.

Puedes descargue una invitación aquí antes de hacer el pedido.
