Ghosted

After 35 years of marriage Alison's husband’s death comes as a heavy blow, but now one year on, her local paranormal group ‘Bump in the Dark’ have helped her to move forward. Encountering ghosts on a daily basis isn’t out of the ordinary for Alison, but her son James struggles to show the same enthusiasm for her new found ‘hobby’ in front of the documentary crew that are following her around.

Risks and challenges

Everyone here is feeling confident about finishing Ghosted. With most of the film having been shot, the biggest risk/challenge will be meeting our Kickstarter goal!

As you probably know, if we don't meet our goal within 30 days, the money is returned to you and we can't finish what we started.
