Location Portfolio:

The following is a portfolio of locations which we have had the honor to investigate. We have tried to be as accurate as we can on our findings. We will not claim or validate a location to be haunted merely for heresay as that goes against our code of integrity.  We also must mention that just because we personally may have not experienced activities, or attained evidence in certain locations. That does not mean that it may not be haunted or may not have paranormal activity. It merely means that since we have found no evidence of such said activity, we cannot in good conscience validate those claims.

Perhaps other teams may have had experiences, yet we cannot make claims to any other team’s evidence but our own.

Time Lapse:

The team disassembled and halted all investigations  for most of 2016 – 2018 as they handled life, business and family. Now  in 2019 they have returned stronger than ever to film with a production team, and to release a series of short films. They feel they have grown so much over the years, that now they have the necessary means  and skills to project them further than ever.  As we always say “Talk is cheap, action speaks louder than words and both our portfolio and production work speaks for itself.”

Stay tuned for more amazing locations, photos and videos coming in 2019 and 2020
