TAPS Concludes Investigation at Fort Knox in Maine

The TAPS team has concluded their investigation of Fort Knox in Maine and presented their findings to the Executive Director of Friends of Fort Knox earlier today. As you may remember, it was reported on January 31st that the Ghost Hunters would be investigating the fort in early February. The article notes that filming began on February 6th with a tour of the location and the team's first night of investigating. They returned on the 7th and the production crew also conducted interviews and filmed exterior shots on the 8th and 9th. Although the article says Jason & Grant presented their findings today (the 11th), a photo suggests that Jason wasn't present and Amy took his place. Patrick Powell, the producer, is quoted as saying the episode will air "in late March or April".
The Friends of Fort Knox, working in partnership with the Maine Department of Conservation’s Bureau of Parks and Lands, has announced that the SyFy Channel’s "Ghost Hunters" TV program has concluded its paranormal investigation of the State Historic site.
The investigation and filming began late Feb. 6 when the 19-member production crew arrived at Fort Knox. Leon Seymour, Friends of Fort Knox executive director, provided the investigators a tour of the site and recounted visitor reports of paranormal experiences. After the initial tour and overview, SyFy "Ghost Hunters" stars Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson began their investigation of the fort. Their efforts extended to approximately 3:30 a.m.
The investigation continued the evening of Feb. 7 into the following morning amidst brief snow showers. On the afternoon of Feb. 8, the "Ghost Hunters" production company interviewed individuals who had reported as having a paranormal experience at the fort to the Friends. One of those interviewed by the crew was local radio personality Sky Taylor, who reported hearing various sounds and even seeing an apparition. On Feb. 9, Bureau of Parks and Lands Historic Site Specialist Tom Desjardin provided the production company with a brief history of Fort Knox. The "Ghost Hunters" film crew spent the rest of the day shooting exterior shots of the fort from various locations and some shots of the town of Prospect.

Steve Gonsalves Becomes Associate Producer of Short Film 'The Captured Bird'

In an interesting piece of news today, Steve Gonsalves has signed on to become an associate producer of a six minute horror/paranormal film called The Captured Bird. According to the film's website "the six-minute short [film] is loosely based on a real life spectral experience". The Captured Bird is written by Jovanka Vuckovic and Guillermo del Toro is serving as an executive producer. The text below is quoted from a press release earlier today.
The Captured Bird has a lot of elements that I really connect with,” explains Gonsalves, an educator on paranormal phenomena and co-founder of TAPS Paramagazine. “It’s a mix of my favorite film genres ­– horror and fantasy – but it also has a large paranormal aspect dealing with the shadow person phenomena, which I have been studying for over fifteen years.”
Says Vuckovic: “Steve is one of the people who has been actively trying to get our film funded since we launched our campaign. He’s also shot in some of the most haunted places in the world and we’re scouting similar locations for The Captured Bird, so when he offered to come on board formally we jumped at the chance to have him as an associate producer and paranormal advisor.”
You can read more about the film and Steve's involvement on the film's website.
