“MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT. THE SIR NOFACE FOOTAGE DEFINITIVELY PROVES THE EXISTENCE OF GHOSTS”- Award winning director Chad Calek

On February 22, 2013 The Australian Government contacted civilian ghost hunter Craig Powell with an unusual request – They wanted him to conduct an extensive investigation of Sydney Harbor’s Cockatoo Island to determine if claims of paranormal activity could be substantiated. “Sir Noface” chronicles the story of the investigation through eye witness accounts. Calek’s evaluation of several unexplainable events is climaxed by footage of a full-body apparition captured in perfect focus which Powell and his team nicknamed Sir Noface. When all is said and done viewers of “Sir Noface” are left with only one conclusion…GHOSTS DO EXIST.

The “Sir Noface Lives Tour”, hosted by Chad Calek and fellow investigator Justin Holstein, offers you an opportunity to be amongst the first to see this mind-blowing footage and spend up to 5 hours exploring Paranormal existence through film. This evening also includes a “best of” evidence presentation featuring 25 years of Calek and Holstein’s most compelling evidence, Q&A’s, and a special 2-hour VIP meet and greet and dinner with the hosts.

Chad Calek is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and world-renowned paranormal investigator most-known as the on-screen focus and Director of his autobiographical AMERICAN GHOST HUNTER documentary. He was also the Co-Star and Director of five seasons of A&E’s hit reality series PARANORMAL STATE, which included Calek’s spin-off special for A&E, titled THE GHOST PROPHECIES. In total, Calek has spent over 25 years investigating the world’s most haunted locations, often completely alone, in search for answers to the bizarre, the mysterious and the unexplained.

Of course, they never are. Seven years in the writing, Poundstone’s new book climbed to #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers list for Humor CDs and landed in the top-10 on the Best Sellers Humor Hardcover list on its first day of release. She is also included in Comedy Central’s List of the 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time, and is an American Comedy Award-winner for Best Female Standup Comic. Poundstone can be heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the Peabody-award winning weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! In addition to her regular appearances on the show, Poundstone is now readying the launch of her own, brand-new weekly podcast – LIVE FROM THE POUNDSTONE INSTITUTE – which is set to premiere on June 20th, 2017. Joined by a live and lively audience, Poundstone takes on the research studies that are so odd they just beg for someone to stand up and say “wait, what?!” The podcast is being produced by NPR and is recorded in Los Angeles.

Engelbert exploded on to the music scene in the sixties. His first single in the charts was “Release Me,” which went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts. It was No. 1 in 11 countries. The following decades saw Engelbert touring the world to sell-out crowds.

THE SIR NOFACE FOOTAGE DEFINITIVELY PROVES THE EXISTENCE OF GHOSTS”- Award winning director Chad Calek On February 22, 2013 The Australian Government contacted civilian ghost hunter Craig Powell with an unusual request – They wanted him to conduct an extensive investigation of Sydney Harbor’s Cockatoo Island to determine if claims of paranormal activity could be substantiated. “Sir Noface” chronicles the story of the investigation through eye witness accounts. Calek’s evaluation of several unexplainable events is climaxed by footage of a full-body apparition captured in perfect focus which Powell and his team nicknamed Sir Noface.
