Together, they take him deep into some of the most haunted locations on the planet.

Spiritual communication and life-after-death:
The results are eerie, thought-provoking, and often terrifying. His journey into the paranormal reaches a climax when he attempts to contact a friend who committed suicide during the making of the film.
From filmmaker Timothy Schultz himself:
“The production of this film was an extraordinary experience. If you accept that it is possible for a spirit to become stuck, for energy to haunt a certain location, no matter the cause of it, then it really brings up many questions about the nature of our true reality and life after death.”
‘Chasing the Shadows’ was edited inside of the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in Denver, Colorado, which has a reputation for being extremely haunted. Director Timothy Schultz vied for this film to be edited at the mansion for inspiration. The crew experienced some very strange occurrences throughout post-production, including strange noises and unexplainable poltergeist activity.
Director Timothy Schultz has appeared in numerous media outlets to discuss the film including on Coast to Coast AM and ‘Ghost Adventures’ on The Travel Channel.
This documentary played film festivals worldwide before being released on-line and via DVD.
