Care and Maintenance of your Silicone Masks and Props
with Josh Overturf of Composite Effects

Josh Overturf

A native of Southern California, Josh grew up down the street from Knott’s Berry Farm. His family were big Halloween fans and they would attend Knott’s Scary Farm every year. Josh started off by building elaborate home haunt walk-throughs when he was 13 years old. Encouraged by his family, the mazes grew bigger each year and would have hundreds of attendees. By 17, Josh was designing sets and rooms for various local charity haunts, including a large Boy Scouts of America haunt in an old beer bottling facility. He has worked as an actor for Knott’s and Universal Studios. He has also worked for Disney on numerous non-Halloween events in both a talent and a technical role.
