Your film Ghost Attack on Sutton Street - in a few words, what is it about?

 

A group of ghost hunters that go off to investigate strange occurrences at a local indoor market place which is attached to a busy shopping centre.

They chew off more than they can chew.

 

Why choose the Old Street Market of Sutton Town for your movie, and what can you tell us about its history?

 

The market place is actually very active and has been used by real ghost hunters in the past to hold events and for private research. The Market is situated where a busy housing estate once stood and was ripped down in the 1970’s to make way for a new state of the art shopping centre. There are tales of those that once lived there still roaming the centre and the shops!

 

What we see on film, is this more or less what you expected in terms of paranormal activity?

 

What you see in a Ghost Hunt - but intensified by 50% to make an on the edge film, the film was cleverly put together by Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here] as we started the evening with a few guests and the manager of the centre, that part is all 100% for real, the stories that manager tells me on film, the way we go about setting up trigger objects and experiments and even the table tipping exercise and glass moving early on is all 100% for real and not staged at all. We do move onto more staged activity for the film purposes, but I will let the viewers decide at which point that happens.

 

Having gone over the footage of Ghost Attack on Sutton Street at a later date, were there some "paranormal" occurences in your film for which you found perfectly logical explanations that simply didn't occur to you due to all the excitement?

 

Good question, I feel it is always essential to go over any footage after an investigation as you may have missed something that adds to the mystery or explains it. For this particular film my honest answer is... No, nothing from the film after watching it back shocked me or added any explanations, I knew what was real and what wasn’t throughout the filming and most of my reactions on the night was acting to make a good film. If I had explained everything on the film it would not have made a good film but a decent documentary. In this case I hope that I do look shocked and confused throughout, as that was my aim to capture the audience and make them feel that all was going wrong.

 

A few words about your co-host on Ghost Attack on Sutton Street, Michelle Gent?

 

Michelle is great to work with, very funny but a true professional. What was good about the night of the filming was that we just rolled with it, no briefing, no script, no instructions - and Michelle’s reactions are some of the best bits of acting I’ve seen on set. She was so convincing I had to keep asking if she was ok off camera, to which she slapped me and called me a soppy sod!

Michelle is also a great author and has written some great books, you can find them at www.gingernutbooks.co.uk.

 

Ghost Attack on Sutton Street also features medium Michelle Hare, with whom you have worked a lot of late, right? What can you tell us about her, and also about your collaborations outside of the movie?

 

Michelle Hare is the official medium for Haunted Events UK (the company I own) - we met a few years back when I asked her to attend an event in Scotland with me. Michelle is a very talented lady and is one of just a few mediums in the UK that has agreed to work with a Paranormal Investigator on a full time basis researching her gift and putting her to the test. We do a great stage show together where she does the usual Mediumship show delivering messages etc but then I come on and do some LIVE experiments on stage and also put Michelle to the test live on stage for all the guests to see... don’t get me wrong she doesn’t get it right all the time, but some of the results are amazing and good on her for being brave enough to give it a go and stand up for what she believes in. Michelle is a very busy lady with events, shows and 1-2-1 readings but you can read more about her at www.michelle-hare.co.uk.

 

Ghost Attack on Sutton Street was directed and shot by a good friend of this website, Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here], with whom you have also worked on quite a few previous occasions. You just have to talk about him for a bit!

 

What can I say about Philip Gardiner? A very good friend who has given me lots of opportunities in several areas such as Film, TV, Radio and marketing as a whole. We have worked on a few films together as well as the Awesome Online Magazine (www.awesomeonlinemagazine.com) which I was editor of for a few editions.

Phil knows what he wants when directing a film, TV show or even a photo shoot, but he is also open for suggestions and takes your views on board when on set. I have had great fun over the past few years working with Phil and would like to thank him for being a great motivator, although I am not working directly alongside Phil at the moment I know he is there should I need to call on his advice or just someone to talk to as a friend, and that just sums up who Phil is. Can’t speak highly enough of him really.

 

I know you have been working in the field for quite some time now - so will you turn more of your ghosthunts into movies?

 

You never know, I am working on a few things at the moment that are Ghost Hunts with a bit of a twist involving a few celebrity names that may turn into TV shows, but as for movies, if it works and the viewers get something from it then YES, why not? I had great fun making it and it was great to play myself, but I don’t want viewers getting confused with the Film and Real Events we offer... but YES, never say never.

 

A few words about your company, Haunted Events UK?

 

The company was set up in 2010 and was initially to give the public a better quality Ghost Hunt than what was already out there, we don’t just look at the spiritual side of the paranormal but also the scientific too. We work with mediums and equipment to try and contact the spirits of the locations we are at but I also like to try and explain what else it could be and how we can explain it. It helps when you have someone dragging along a partner with them that doesn’t really believe, they go away thinking “you know what, I enjoyed that and learned something too”.

 

Haunted Events UK offers ghosthunts to the general public. How does that work?

 

We have contracts at locations such as Newstead Abbey, Wollaton Hall, Nottingham Castle and Sherwood Forest to run exclusive Ghost Hunts to the public. We have up to 60 paying guests on the night and split them into groups of 15 who then go off an investigate the location. We then give usually 4 vigils that explore all different aspects of the paranormal to give the guests the full package. At all times on each vigil the guest is in control, if they want to do something different to what we have planned, then we go with it, my staff are just guides and will assist the guests all they can. No investigation is the same and the activity varies from location to location and through the different groups and guests.

My advice is keep an open mind and go with the flow, you never know!

 

How does one become a paranormal investigator in the first place, and is there any way to actually learn this?

 

You can study Psychology and Parapsychology and look into what causes people to see, hear or experience this kind of activity, but the best way to learn this trade is experience, get out there and have a go, speak to experienced people in the industry and get help and advice on what equipment you need to start up and where are the best places to go. That’s how I started many years ago. Although I have no formal education in Paranormal Activity I have been studying Paranormal Activity for 16 years and there is no better education than experience in my opinion.

 

Your spookiest experiences as paranormal investigator so far?

 

Another great question, So many to choose from but not all spooky but some great activity, I will have to go with The Clifton Hall Hauntings back in 2007 and 2008 which made international news. The family fled a £5 million mansion after activity there, and I was called in with my team back then to investigate. The hall was weird, like nothing I had experienced before, almost like a scene from the Twilight Zone. Strange figures, whistling, doors slamming, disorientation and more. The only place ever I have had to stop an investigation and have a break because my team were dropping like flies after being locked in rooms, fainting and crying. The place is still empty and cannot be sold!

 

Any future projects of any kind you'd like to talk about?

 

Plenty of events coming up with Haunted Events UK, which can be found on the website including a great Friday 13th Special in July in Sherwood Forest and also some Halloween special too.

Also I am about to start a radio show on Takeover Radio 106.9 as a mid-morning show - not paranormal related, just a general magazine style show.

Again we are working on a few TV projects so watch this space for some cool Ghost Hunting documentary shows and some putting Celebrities through their paces.

And since this is a movie site I just have to ask: Your favourite and least favourite movies?

 

Favourite movie has to be Halloween (original) with Jamie Lee Curtis, loved that film as a kid and never grow tired of it.

Least favourite has to be Mamma Mia!, little unfair as I've never seen it, but I have seen clips and parts of the movie and had to stop myself from falling to sleep or throwing up with the cheese factor! Not a fan...
