Production Notes

Ghost Box the movie began with an obsession for the paranormal. Communication with the spirit world has been a peculiar curiosity for many, especially the writers Erik Papucci and Michal Jarzabek.

After months of paranormal research and experiments, the script was in the works. Thanks to Tom Bednarz and Sabrina Majicanos who donated their home, the location was secured. In the mean time, NXT Level Productions casted Chicago Actors while the script was getting finalized.

Once the cast and crew were assembled, the first shoot date was scheduled for Saturday August 26-27, 2017. The filming then continued the following week on September 1-4 for a total of six days. The day came with great excitement; new and old friends came together as a team to follow their passions, working hard to make the vision of Ghost Box come to life.

The movie was shot with five cameras total: Panasonic GH5, two Sony ax6300, Air Mavric and Phantom Standard 3. Some scenes were filmed with multiple cameras. Equipment varied from stabilizers, jibs, tripods and drones. Lighting design was accomplished with a mix of practical, gobo, and LED lights. Location audio was recorded with a Zoom H6.

After the initial shoot dates, the filming of movie was not finished. The total time of production was roughly a year. Post-production was done on Premier for video and Pro Tools for sound. In addition, the movie is formatted to 5.1 surround sound. The movie “Ghost Box” runs a total of 64 minutes and is an experimental indie film crossing over three genres: Thriller, Comedy and Drama.
