Well as many of you will know by now – especially if you keep tuned into the Highgate Vampire saga and BPOS investigations into the Paranormal around the UK – Muswell Hill held its first ever Geisterfest at Hallowe’en aimed at promoting community spirit and businesses in the local community.
I gave a basic report about this in my Blog of November 9th and also gave a brief summary of my appearance on Carrie Kirkpatrick’s Oracle TV on Sunday November 2nd (and I provided a link to this 4-hour programme which touched on the case of the notorious Highgate ‘vampire’), but what I really ‘held back’ was that after the Geisterfest itself, there was another project to complete: a promotional film to promote Della’s new book “Haunted Highgate”, and more importantly to give readers who have never had a chance to visit Highgate to see some of its most haunted locations for themselves – on the eeriest night of the year! The film features Della and paranormal author Paul Adams, and was filmed entirely on location in Highgate.
I thought it best not to mention this at the time because 1) the project had not yet been completed and 2) I wanted to see the finished footage which had not then been viewed, let alone edited! So I decided to ‘err on the side of caution’ before releasing this ‘breaking news’ and attracting accusations from potential critics that we had actually filmed inside Highgate Cemetery at night and amounted to illegal trespass within the cemetery! This in fact, did not happen, although we did go to several different Highgate locations most of which had been the sites of witnessed ‘ghost sightings’, and such-like.
Well, I have since seen the edited footage and, apart from some technical lighting problems, it is now virtually completed, for release in about a week or two. But I’ll let everyone know and provide the playable link.
So, everything seems to have quietened down a little now after the last couple of weeks. Della and I really have been overworked a little during the Hallowe’en period. But we can relax a little now at least, and the only way to do that is with a couple of glasses of wine!
For now everyone,
