Prather of IDC Devices, who builds one of a kind equipment designed for spirit communication, and veteran researcher Justin Spurrier from Spurrier Paranormal.  Will team up to make contact with who or what roams the halls of the Randolph County Asylum, using never before attempted paranormal experiments on an unprecedented scope and scale.  Pushing the edge of paranormal research to obtain answers to the nexus of this haunting.  We will be filming on location in March and time is critical, and we need your help.

What is the project?

What we need?

Is your help to make this project happen and tell the story of this incredible location and raise awareness for S.T.O.P. (Save The Old Properties).  Filming a project like this properly is an expensive venture, the team is funding the location and as much of production as we can.  We need your support, any amount you can contribute is appreciated!

Cameras and lighting:  We need a few additional pieces of filming gear to supplement the freelance videographer.

Freelance Videographer and Sound Tech: Though we are content creators, a story this important needs filmed by experienced production professionals.

Post-Production:  Professional filming is only half of the battle.  To achieve the immersive storytelling elements, professional editing, sound mixing, color-grading, etc., are critical to ensure this project can reach its full potential.

Along with our sincere thanks, there will also be a bit of additional incentive to donate in the form of some perks, dependent on how much you give.

Justin's first memorable paranormal experience occurred in 1984 when he was five years old. Immediately following this experience, he began to see, hear and feel spirits in his everyday life. This still continues today. At the age of 14, Justin started performing his own research experiments on the strange occurrences that were happening around him. To this day, he has continued his journey into the unknown as he searches for new ways that will (hopefully) allow for us to have direct, 2-way communication with what he sometimes refers to as 'invisible visitors.' Justin Spurrier's paranormal research has provided us with what many consider to be the best evidence of afterlife communication to date. He has traveled the lower 48 states and conducted his research at some of the most iconic locations across America. To date, Justin has logged thousands of investigations and has notebooks full of data that he recorded during his various experiments. In 2018, Justin was invited to participate in the Ghost Adventures LIVE Halloween show. One week later, he was offered a full-time position with the hit TV show. He immediately began traveling with the team and served as the Equipment Technician/Manager of Ghost Adventures. All three of Justin's children have had paranormal experiences that were similar in nature to what he himself went through as a child. He continues to work with them on a regular basis and even has a YouTube series with his oldest son in which the two of them travel to various places in hopes of capturing even more evidence of life after death.
