    Hi folks,

    As some may know, and some may not, I work on a "ghost" investigation series up here in Canada. It's not available yet outside of our country, but over the holidays I mashed several half-hour episodes from the second season together that covered one investigative arc at the Queens County Museum in Liverpool, Nova Scotia (we're just heading into our fourth season now). I'm just posting it here by way of saying hello, and in case anyone is interested.



    For more info, here's our site: Haunted

    What are the odds with the poker chip? Pretty amazing IMO.

    Getting the pipe tossed at me was about as freaky / scary as it gets. I’ve also never seen Holly so out of sorts as she was up in the “Void”. It was a genuinely weird two nights. No answers coming out of it (we don’t do that)... just questions.

    By the way, I’m curious... because the broadcaster pretty much has let me make the show I want to make, the way I want to make it (you have no idea how rare that is), I’ve made the most non-traditional “”ghost” show I can think of, eschewing the quick cut style of shock and awe used by pretty much everyone else (Ghost Adventures being perhaps the most notorious example) in favour of a more cerebral, experiential personal style. We filmed an entire 8 minute segment once with just me and Holly talking about theories, and linking “ghosts” to work by guys like the late Mac Tonnies. Dillon jokingly refers to me as the Ingmar Bergman of ghost investigating TV directors.

    But while we like it, and it seems to play well up here in Canada, I’m curious as to how folks elsewhere react to it. Accordingly, any feedback, whether positive or negative, is welcomed and appreciated.

    As I've said previously.There's an honesty around your work.I'm dubious about the existence of ghosts and paranormal things generally but am prepared to have my mind changed.I trust that you and your team are taking things seriously and don't go in for fakery of any kind.
    The biggest ghost show in the UK is most haunted.It's terrible.If anything real happened it it would be drowned out by the screaming and awful acting.My biggest concern is the ghostbox.Are you convinced it works and isn't just an aural pareidolia device?.

    I was very skeptical of the ghost box when we started out, and wouldn’t really use it, but it’s slowly become my go-to tool over the past two years. We discount a lot of what we hear, but every now and then something pops through that just can’t be ignored, particularly when it’s tied to something else that’s happening. I think of it as simply a mechanism that indicates to whatever might be out there that you’re willing to engage, and that gives that something the means to interact with you on its own terms.

    And no, we never fake anything. I would fire anyone on the spot if I ever caught them doing it, but I completely trust our small team.

    As for being serious, we take the subject very seriously, but never ourselves. If you can’t have fun while you’re doing it (even if you’re being scared out of your wits), what’s the point? :)

    Yes everyone I've seen in your team is likeable and the banter you have works well, without any negative impact in your investigations.Thanks for your thoughts on the ghostbox.Is there a chance of your programmes getting a wider release beyond North America?

    I saw an episode or two a long time ago (at least it seems like a long time ago). Either you posted on the Paracast or were a guest on the show and you mentioned it so I checked it out. Your approach to the ghost situation is pretty much the same way you approached the subject of UFO' - with logic & common sense being two big components. I used to say that if the rest of the players involved in the UFO field had your sensibility & approach - we might know something by now. I'd keep doing what you are doing with the ghost show. To me it plays perfectly and it's great to see a show without all the fake drama & smoke & mirrors. I hope you are able to keep making the show for a long time to come :)

    We've been so busy with production on several series (only one of which is related to the paranormal - Haunted) and feature films that we just haven't found the time yet to get distribution arranged for the rest of the world. We hope to have that done in the next month or two, however, probably through our Vimeo channel first, and then perhaps through ITunes or Amazon down the road.

    Hey Paul, it's been a really busy week for me this week finally have some time to relax, I'm watching your OP video now, I just got to the point of using the ghostbox...

    Have you heard of this guy Christopher Moon?...Is he legit or putting on a show?...

    I like your show thus far, about 45 min in, I have never heard the ghostbox before, that was interesting...The only reason I mention Moon is because he claims to use the ghostbox to communicate...

    There was a fair amount of orb activity whilst you guys were discussing cold spots, about 4 orbs looked and behaved like small insects but the others were not insects nor dust, they were something else...

    looks like scam, real ghost box recordings while audible clearly, have a strange mettalic tone to them, so the accent and the voice is usually muffled

    Oh my the freaking ouija board, she looked like she had a strangle mark on her neck, and her face was getting red...:ohmy8:

    I used one of those with a friend back in 1987 for a couple weeks out of curiosity and things happened too, don't want to use one of those ever again...
