Feeling haunted? SYFI wants to hear about it
KAHULUI - "Do you have a ghost story to tell?" asks Harry Donenfeld, director of the Maui County Film Office. "Maybe paranormal activities happen all the time in your neck of the woods! Well it's time to tell your story!"
"Haunted Collector," a new hit series on the SYFY Channel, has expressed an interest in filming in Maui County, Donenfeld reports.
"The more stories submitted, the better chance Maui County has of having the Haunted Collector come and investigate our strange and paranormal activities."
People thinking they have paranormal potential should submit a detailed description of the phenomenon, its location and any other relevant history to filmcomsh@gmail. com.
Submissions should include name, location and contact information and, if possible, photos of yourself and the location in question.
