About

Isolated Hauntings puts an individual alone, in the dark, in one of the most haunted places in Canada with nothing more than cameras and paranormal investigation equipment. The idea is that with only one single investigator, it is not only terrifying but it allows for the least bias documenting of paranormal activity.

It's all about seclusion and being isolated from any external or internal interference of any kind while investigating paranormal activity. This allows for evidence to be gathered without the possibility of cross-contamination from another investigator or faking any evidence within the investigating area.

All of the paranormal shows currently on TV involve teams of 2 or more. With so many people in the same place at the same time, how are you able to determine if it was your team member making noise or the paranormal? Well we want to change that and at the same time create a terrifying experience that will keep the viewer on edge throughout every investigation.

Aaron Hutchinson

Aaron is a law graduate from Bond University in Queensland, Australia. His perspective on life and spirituality changed drastically the day after he had told his father he graduated. He received the phone call no one ever wants to get, that his father had passed to the other side. This was the turning point in his life that made him reflect on everything from spirits to reality. I think this is the reason he started buying ghost hunting equipment and meditating, he wanted to be able to contact his deceased father.

In the coming years he moved from Calgary to Vancouver and back to Calgary again. He dabbled in the spiritual world and meditation a little bit but his main focus was on finding a career while at the same time trying to battle emotions brought on from his ex-girlfriend and the loss of his father.

Eventually he became stable again and was able to focus on his spiritual side. He began playing with his spiritual instruments and started meditating again, this time on a heavier basis. Ghost hunting and finding out the unknown was his passion. He isn’t like every other person out there, he enjoys investigating spirits and isn’t scared when things get dark.

Matt "Buzz" Buzahora

Matt is a graduate of the University of Calgary with a bachelor of science in geology. To date, he's done a wide range of things with his life, bouncing around from career to career without ever really finding his true calling. This mix of experiences and passion for science lend a unique perspective when dealing with the paranormal things in this world.

Always a spiritual person, Matt has been open about the afterlife for most of his life. Growing up he was aware that his parents house was also home to the late previous owner of the property. A kind and gentle spirit, he could feel her presence from time to time when she would check in on the family and her former house.

Approaching investigations with the role of the skeptic of the team, Matt focuses more around experimental data collection and attempting to establish a conversation with the other side. He longs to focus on that most fundamental question we carry with us all our lives: the great mystery of death. He hopes that these experiences will help him and others better understand our own mortality and how science, and the spiritual world, interact.

Unlike any other paranormal TV show, Isolated Hauntings puts an individual face-to-face with fear itself by taking out the companionship that a team brings and throws him into a haunted surrounding with nothing but his cameras and paranormal equipment.

There is no one to call, there is no where to hide, there is nothing but you and whatever spirits are around. You'll be able to watch the fear the investigator goes through as his shoulder mounted camera records his facial reactions to anything he encounters. The investigation is done in darkness without the use of any lighting, besides the night vision camera, adding to the fear factor.

In the future, if this is a successful project, our goal is to start doing LIVE investigations. This will involve the individual investigator having a live camera feed to a streaming service, allowing the viewers to watch live investigations and even help in collecting paranormal activity that may have been missed. This would involve Matt or myself responding to live comments while the other investigates.

 The following is a breakdown of where the funds will be distributed:

  • 4K 60p/50p/25p/24p Ultra HD Professional Camcorder with 20X LEICA DICOMAR Lens - HC-X1 - $3,199.99;

  • Location Insurance - $1,050.00 (3 locations at $350.00 a piece);
  • Travel & Accommodation - $1,500.00;
  • Location Cost - $4,500 (3 locations at $1,500.00 a piece);
  • Post-Production Cost - $5,000.00; and
  • Contingency Costs (if not used will be used on future investigations and equipment) - $1,500.00.

Risks and challenges

Our main risk with this project is to, eventually, be able to get the attention of a Network.

There are several ways we've addressed this problem.

For starters, we included in our budget the right amount of funds to produce three episodes of a high quality standard. With a high quality product being produced, we are able to really showcase what Isolated Hauntings is able to bring to a Network.

Secondly, we have already begun networking with several Producer's in the Vancouver area. When the time comes to pitch ourselves to a Network, we will leverage these relationships to help get us in the door.

Thirdly, we have begun work on an in-person pitch and filtering out any questions they may pose in an interview situation.

Lastly, with the proper funds and equipment, we will create a show that will keep you on edge and provide a thrilling and heart stopping experience that will grab a Network's attention.
