    Im in the process of moving back north. I will not be returning to KY but will be in the Appalachian area. I have a web show that will be hosted via YouTube channel that is in the development stage. I've had the idea in mind for many years and will finally be living in the right geographical area to make it feasible.

    The show is called
    Haints, Haunts & Hollers: The Ghosts of Appalachia
    It will feature ghost hunts centered around the urban (rural) legends, folk stories and local haunts found in the Appalachian Mountains and will likely be filmed in a documentary style cross between to A Haunting and Ghost Adventures. I had always envisioned the 'investigation' part as having some kind of audience interaction feature...one reason why web broadcast is so appealing...but I don't want to sacrifice the historical narrative. The latter is very important for setting up the creepy atmosphere as well informing the audience about the ghostly legend itself. Think a campfire ghost story told Blair Witch style. I'm not sure at this point how to accomplish an interactive feature or if the idea should be abandoned and I should stick with a traditional format. The episodes will likely run 45 minutes to one hour. I am certain that they will not run longer.

    Anyway, I have time to play around with ideas so if any of you fine folks have any...please share! 51c38972f84f4b1199d37ddde406e176--creepy-woods-dark-autumn.jpg

    I meant to add that haint is an old mountain folk word for ghost. My great grandmother called them haints.

    It sounds interesting. My grandmother's family came from Appalachia. Living in those isolated areas before the invention of radio people experienced all kinds of paranormal events that were treated as no big deal. Ghosts and spirits and second sight were just part of everyday life for them.

    Yes :)

    That's just the thing I want to explore. Places like Waverly Hills have been so overdone by every ghost hunter out there. It doesn't interest me much anymore. It did at first but not now.

    The documentary people just want the biggest bang for their buck. In the old days people had a strong connection to nature and death was a part of everyday life.

    Well there's no buck to be had here. And expenses are my own. Why I said the venture has never been feasible until now. Not something I could accomplish while living in Florida or even central Kentucky.

    I didn't mean you were looking to make a fast buck. I was talking about those doc shows on the history channel and YouTube that go to places like the old asylums for the sensational stuff.

    Oh I know you weren't. I was just speaking out loud really. I think it would be gold if I obtain good evidence but I am not going to rely on sensationalism to pad the often mediocre evidence we collect in the course of an 8 hour investigation. I don't have to since I am not going after tv ratings to keep a show afloat. I have three goals...educate, investigate and scare the hell out of some folks (a ghost story without goosebumps is no ghost story at all lol). Its the creepiness that will have to hold the viewer's attention and if it doesn't...well, they can always watch Ghost Adventures on Netflix. lol
