Last Shoot Completed

What a day.

Tonight, a wrap was called on shooting for The Hollow and what a way to end.

I really want to tell you all what an amazing time it has been and more about the shoot, but that would ruin the surprise.

Suffice to say that it was electric thanks to James, Gemma, John Symes, Danny, Hugh, Becki and the wonderful Jessica Messenger.

Editing and finishing is the next stage and all I can say is you’re in for a treat!

A huge thank you to all of the talent displayed throughout the filming and those behind the scenes helping this along.


Ghostly Goings On at The Vic

I’ve heard the stories, seen pictures and even videos like the one below. Nothing prepares someone for a real life experience of a haunting, however.

Those who know me may be aware of my own ‘house guest’, but he seems more Casper than creepy.

Let me start with this video, shot during some background scene filming for The Hollow:

This is after tales of vigils with strange sounds not unlike a grunting, clothing being moved, cold, and a general feeling of spookiness.

Scroll forward to last week, where No Redemption were rehearsing and some friends who were visiting for Hallowe’en were listening. They managed to capture some footage of a boy dancing, possibly the same one as above, and stills of other possible spectres.

So, this evening upped the game. Around 8:40 p.m., the temperature really dropped and the grunt was heard following James Earnshaw around. As well as the general temperature, ‘cold spots’ appeared and even moved with the band.

James had an idea to record the sound, given that the equipment was there. This was a massive success and we located a subsonic noise that had us all baffled as to the cause. Whilst analysing the recordings, we decided to fill the room with the smoke machine and could see disturbances caused that seemed as though an entity of some sort had moved through it. I want to make it clear that there were no natural draughts and the smoke moved as though forced in a particular way.

A general sense of unease remained and I’ve protected my home tonight before writing this.

The Victoria Hotel in Stoke has a history of strange events and this is another one to add to the list. Hoping to do another vigil there for further evidence, but why not pop down yourself and see what you think firsthand?


Interesting…

Well, looks like The Hollow may be moving foward.

Sadly, don’t want to ruin anything, but more footage may be filmed to finish the film and I for one can’t wait to see the finished product.

Oooh…

Go back to where it all began with Paranormal Activity 3.

Trailer below; let us know what you think in the comments!

edit: realised that I put ‘haunting’ instead of ‘activity’… must have been thinking of this. Also changed source of video as was not embedding nicely 😦
