I am starting a new show mixing comedy with ghost hunting and stumbled upon something I can't put my finger on: http://grinnerhester.com/wtf.wmv
I've treated this in no way. Real time first then slow mo.
Assuming you didn't eat a jelly sandwich before the shoot, and that you don't need 3-d glasses to watch this, it kind of looks almost like an old-fashioned tube burn or blooming. Were you using IR or UV emitters for supplemental lighting?
You say you didn't treat the footage, but why does it look like you have some film scratch artifacts happening in there mid-way? You can get color weirdness like this sometimes if the camera is near a powerful magnetic field, or maybe under a power conduit in the ceiling overhead. Is all the footage like this, or just a section? What were the circumstances around the shot, before and after?
I don't buy a paranormal explanation for any of it, but it makes a fun technical puzzle to solve. Need more data.
No IR or UV.
Dunno about the artifacts you are seeing that look like film scratch. It's very grainy because it was pitch black in the dungeon so I have the camera as wide open as it'll go. Shooting on a Sony FX-1.
The building has had no power to it for several decades.
Circumstances before the shoot... many murders since the early 1800s. This Hotel served as a station for the undergruond railroad. The room we were in at the time was for the slaves... a place to make em realize they were about to be in a better place. The Hotel flew both flags during the civel war, depending on wehich troop was in town at the time. It housed folks ranging from Al Capone to Jesse James back in the day.
The night before we were there, phycics were there so things seemed to be "stirred up" according to the caretaker.

I think this show has legs. My quazi disbelief but ironic fear in every room is reffreshing compaired to the coockie cutter ghost shows today. My coming clean at the end about what I did and did not do to treat the footage will be the selling point of this show. This way they will always be entertaining but never bunk.
I think you just have a badly gelled red light you're turning on and off:-)
You know, I really hate these ghost hunting video shows that never ever come up with anything conclusive... but I WOULD watch one done as pure comedy, a la a "ghost hunters meets Reno 911" kind of thing. Played as if its straight, but completely for laughs. The ghost hunter thing is falling into the same tropes as a lot of the discovery chanel shows: fake forced drama developing between cast members gets as much or more coverage than the actual show subject matter. That style of program is ripe for skewering.
