LOVELAND (AP) Loveland resident Bill Chappell did not wake up one morning and decide to go find some ghosts. But consulting jobs in engineering led him to work with equipment used in paranormal research and sparked his interest in documentary filming.
I dont get scared, Chappell said. Do I believe people are having experiences? I absolutely do. I just dont know what it ends up being.
He is filming two documentaries about paranormal activity, Three Legs Down, or 3LD, and Ghosts of Loveland.
The first is the story of a Fort Collins group of paranormal investigators and their experiments with paranormal activity.
The group sets up experiments at the Loveland Feed and Grain building and other private and downtown Loveland locations, which Chappell films.
He plans to winnow 100 to 150 hours of video into 44 minutes of film, which, with commercials, will last one hour.
Randy Schneider, a Fort Collins resident involved with the filming of 3LD, likes Chappells attention to detail.
I think he gets across the message, the effect that he wants, Schneider said. There is a paranormal community out there that is interested in seeing what other researchers or people are doing in this field.
