CGB TEXT – OFFICIAL MEDIA – PANEL SUMMARY 1
“The Proton Pack Is Not a Toy” – Ghostbusters Prop-building
Being a Ghostbuster is far more demanding and in-depth than most people realize. In this panel, we’ll take a look at the ins and outs of everything you need to be a Ghostbuster. We’ll answer questions and give advice and pointers about the biggest and most in-depth prop build out there, the Proton Pack. We’ll provide links to equipment plans and talk shop on what you need to know that fan-made plans don’t tell you, a run-down on creating on-site effects for your ghost trap, and discussion about how to handle questions in the field like, “What is that hose on your uniform for?” In addition, we’ll cover the basics like proper uniforms, patches, and certain pieces of equipment along with low-cost places to find them.

“Don’t Worry, I Found the Car” – Building your own Ecto-1
Ecto-1 is the most recognizable movie vehicle with the least amount of screen time in cinema history. Want to build your own but don’t know where to start? Want to find that elusive ’59 Cadillac? (We’ve got some bad news on that search.) We’ll talk about the parts of the car, both inside and out, and where to find them or how to fabricate them, where to pick up the proper emergency and warning lights and equipment and the legality of such, and where to find the “growler” siren.

“Back off, man, I’m a scientist” – Examining the Real Science Behind Paranormal Investigations
The movie Ghostbusters, although a comedy, was the first examination and approach of the paranormal as an empirical science. Today, with all the paranormal hype in the media, there is a big difference between “ghost hunters” and Paranormal Investigators. It’s more than just having EMF detectors, fancy cameras, and a willingness to go into creepy places. We examine the deeper science behind paranormal investigations and what steps are going to need to be taken to get the field of the Paranormal to be treated legitimately by the scientific community.

“The Ghostbusters…yes, those guys on TV” – The Ultimate Ghostbusters Panel
This is the ultimate Ghostbusters panel. It starts with a rundown and explanation of Ghostbuster props from the movie and how to build a proton pack, slime blower, ghost trap, ecto goggles, and even some tips on building an Ecto-1. Then learn about the science behind the movie props and how some of that science translates into actual paranormal investigations. From there, the Carolina Ghostbusters will explain the what goes into being real-life paranormal investigators, including what equipment is used in the field and some of the dos and don’ts of investigations. Sit back and enjoy some fun stories and some stories that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
