I have just reviewed a video clip of footage that I made of the official Houdini Seance. There was one part of the seance where something happened. I will post the video to YouTube for a limited time. Although I perform theatrical seances along with the medium in this seance, Scott Wells, we did not "rig" anything to happen as we approached this for what it was, a REAL SEANCE! There were several things that happened that night as several people reported various phenomenon but this was the most compelling. There were official videographers who recorded the event and I believe Arthur Moses will be releasing this for sale at some point. The shot you will see was taken from a stationary camera on a tripod in low light. You will see the original framing as well as a digitally zoomed in version.

In the zoomed in version, the "occurrence" is centered in the frame. I will have the link available soon as I am working on getting it uploaded now!

Stay Tuned!

Looks like the upload is going to be a while as the video is high definition footage. It is just at 5% uploading!

Funny thing is that in the morning, I see the video failed to convert on YouTube! Does Harry not want you to see this? I have redone the video and I am saving it in a different format. It is being uploaded right now. I will keep you posted!

Look in the very center of the video when it is zoomed it. There is a person sitting at the table that blocks the view of the seance handcuffs. The program next to it, right above the person's head, moves towards the cuffs.

Look at 1:00 in the video. You will see the program move to the left just above the head of the person.

I was a consultant for this event and I can tell you first hand that this was not "set-up". Was this paranormal? The program that moved was on top of several programs. It was kind of open and the open side was facing the candle. Was it the heat radiating from the candle that gave the right amount of "push" to get the program to move off of the stack? Was it simply like dishes falling/moving in a sink? Or was it Houdini himself? If this was rigged, we would have had the professional manned cameras capture this. I was lucky that my camera was able to capture it. I used software to zoom in on the spot as my camera was a wide shot as you saw in the beginning of the footage.

It without a doubt was great the way it happened whether it was paranormal or not!

Air currents..you've got a big old room, and a lit candle in a glass holder...the heat from the candle, via the glass and the room in general, that'll cause paper and similar to warp/buckle/move via drafts or heat...

I think if it was houdini's ghost - he'd move something other than a bit of paper...or at least have the decency to apologise to all the poor mediums who he poo-poo'd...

Houdini was/is not one for apologizing.
Of course he wanted to look at the program, he had to see if his name was at the top, and how big it was.

Not all that impressive. I was hoping for more after all these years. Do spirits only move light objects such as paper?
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

True Tony...

the thing is (for me at least) - its the illogical nature of ghosts, if we accept they exist (and they might for all I know) then I don't see why their personality has to change...unless that's part of the rules of Summerland (which is of itself an interesting question to think about)...

so if houdini DID come back in ghost form, what would you expect him to do first?

lets say someone is an artist, loved it, lived it, and was a loner, but quietly kind and gentle...dies of natural causes, comes back as a ghost...he's maybe be concerned about having the right light in the room, he could be encouraged by the smell of oils, a fine sable brush and some canvas "slates" left out for him to leave a mark...

one of the things that sets alarm bells off in what passes as my mind is, if the behaviour is inconsistent to the person when alive, either we have to understand WHY its suddenly changed, or start thinking about other reasons as to why something happened...whichever we find hardest to do (if its easy, it might be too obvious)...

when I snuff it and I potentially become a ghost, if you left me out a glass of decent rum or absinthe, played some music I liked - I reckon I would try my best to rattle a guitar or an xbox 360 controller...i wouldnt be bothered or interested in trying to contact someone who wasn't on my wavelength...
