HAUNTED CHANGI trailer on Facebook:
A film crew's blog - the making of HAUNTED CHANGI. Old Changi Hospital in Singapore is one of the most notoriously haunted places in the world.
Rumors of secrets tunnels in OCH are common. It's been suggested that the Singapore government had them sealed long ago. Was there another entry point left unsealed?
As the original producers of the HAUNTED CHANGI project, we have never actually seen the footage from last night in which some of the crew members returned to Old Changi Hospital one last time. This is because the footage itself was tied up in a legal matter. We then sold all our original footage of the project to another company. The production company has since obtained the footage from that last night. Unfortunately, we were not able to view the footage so we don't even know exactly what happened. Of course, we do know that it did not end well.
However, we have been told that apparently the footage shows the returning crew finding the lost secret tunnels of Old Changi Hospital. As reported by the production company that now owns all of the footage -- "it is definitely a very old tunnel" and "we've never seen any footage like this of OCH before, so it can only be the lost tunnels." They gave us very little information other than "one of the crew keeps calling out someone's name in Chinese." When we asked who, they would not say exactly, but told us that "eventually he finds who he was looking for."
They did agree to give us this still frame from the footage (see below)...
When we asked what exactly happened at the end of the last night's exploration, the representative for the production company would not respond other than to say "it will all be clear in the final film."
Unfortunately, the last night's footage is as much of a mystery to the original remaining HAUNTED CHANGI crew as it is to everyone else.
HAUNTED CHANGI will include footage taken from a surveillance camera that was set up by one of the crew members. There were multiple surveillance cameras originally set up outside of OCH but one of the cameras disappeared and is assumed to have been stolen. Footage from the surviving camera will in fact be used in the film.
It's been know for awhile that the film crew shot interesting footage while they were at OCH... but it now appears they managed to capture some very interesting shots even while they were away from OCH too.
An update for the Old Changi Hospital film project HAUNTED CHANGI. A local production company has purchased all of our footage from the project. As part of the contractual agreements, the crew is handing all footage and materials for the project over to the production company and keeping all blogs online as they were during the production. When there are any updates, we will still post here and continue blogging about our experiences with the film. Thanks to everyone for all of the support.
News about the movie's theatrical release coming soon!
Meanwhile, there is a new Facebook Page for the movie here: facebook.com/hauntedchangi
Thanks for all of your support.
Our apologies to everyone for not posting in awhile. March proved to be a very inauspicious month for the crew of HAUNTED CHANGI. After prolonged bouts of sickness amongst the crew, tragedy struck and it has since been a time for solace and healing. We appreciate all the help and support received from everyone online and we just want you all to know that in spite of everything that has happened recently, we are still dedicated to completing the film and sharing our experiences in OCH. We hope to have good news soon.
Spent the week sorting through the OCH night footage captured by two infrared helmet cameras and the regular camera -- a lot of material.
Well, in our last post we were relieved to have survived the night shoot at Old Changi Hospital, but we probably sounded a bit disappointed that there were so many technical difficulties. It was a truly creepy experience in OCH, but we were really afraid that we didn't capture anything on camera.
But now after reviewing some of the night footage... we are afraid that we actually DID capture something on camera! Let there be no mistake... we've got some AMAZING footage of OCH at night. It will not disappoint. Believe us, we'd love to share and show you everything right now, but we do have the film to complete -- so it has to wait.
Whatever was in Changi that night, it was definitely not camera shy during our visit... unless of course you can somehow rationalize what is seen in the footage -- again and again. We'll leave it up to the viewers to decide when the movie is screened.
Why so spiritually active at OCH? We don't know, but it's been suggested that Feb. 15th is the anniversary of the Japanese invasion during World War Two, sixty-eight years ago... and that was close to the time of our night visit. Dunno, we're quite skeptical, but it's an interesting theory.
With that in mind, most of the crew are now vowing never to return to OCH. Can you blame them? But our ever skeptical director Andrew is planning to go back for some extra footage at some point and... well, that's all we can say right now.
Please be patient with us. We're soooo tempted to post more and show you everything right now... but we've got to save it for the film. However, there are a few more shots we can share below.
Stay tuned for more updates on the post-production end of things... and wish us luck!
