At first glance, the Booth Brothers look like they would be the life of the party. And in many cases, they are. The rock star looking duo has made an impression during the 6th Annual Gasparilla International Film Festival, currently running on all-cylinders in Tampa, Florida. Christopher Saint Booth and Philip Adrian Booth are simply documentary filmmakers…who just happen to specialize in chronicling stories of the supernatural by entering some of the most haunted, and disturbing places on Earth.

They’re not your typical sell-out ghost hunters though, and essentially, they’re just curious about that stage of life (my opinion). In fact, their only true goal is to present the facts of the tale and attempt to bring some type of closure to the subject via their own unique production style. The capturing of ghosts on camera and/or on their plethora of detecting devices is just an added bonus. But they will candidly admit, it (ghostly evidence) does assist in paying the bills and allows them to keep moving forward in their entertainment careers.

Now although they have the cache of guys you want to hop on a tour bus with and pillage the town until the wee-hours of the morning – and they used to prior to entering the film biz – the passionate duo has a depth to them that is evident in both their work and respective personas. And through that, they have conjured up a loyal fanbase – which one will see a small sample of at the beginning of this video chat.

(Yes, the lighting isn’t the greatest, but that comes with the territory of doing live on-site interviews in the midst of all the craziness that is GIFF. And pinning down these always on-the-go guys can be a fun little challenge)
