KARL PFEIFFER (Director, Editor, Cast), has always been passionate about the mysterious, uncanny, and supernatural in the world around him. Riding the public interest in the late Aughts, he dove into ghost hunting while in college and appeared on Syfy's Ghost Hunters Academy and Ghost Hunters International. From there, he acted as the Resident Paranormal Investigator at the Stanley Hotel for five years. There, he directed and edited the webseries Spirits of the Stanley for the Dark Zone web network and conducted 250 investigations on the property. Of late, between his studies into mysticism in college and with his research into the stranger corners of the ghostly. he's expanded his focus into all aspects of the paranormal. He is also a portrait and conceptual photographer based out of Northern Colorado, and he's written two books.
In 2012, Greg Newkirk received an email from a man calling himself David Christie, who claimed that he and his family were being terrorized by unearthly creatures by night. After exchanging emails, David disappeared. For the next five years, the case only got stranger, as more connections and mysterious emails came in. Then, in 2017, Greg and a team of researchers traveled to rural Kentucky, not knowing what they would uncover, or how deep they would discover the case might go.
That was the premise of the first season of Hellier, a five-part documentary series, a true labor of love from all those involved. The first season was put together on a shoestring budget with camera and gear that the director, Karl Pfeiffer, and his friends could put together.
But the Hellier project didn't stop there. Despite spending hundreds of hours in the editing bay and releasing season one to much acclaim in January of 2019, the team continued to research and explore, and the case only blossomed. After thousands of miles of driving, months of research and filming, Hellier now returns in November 2019 with a full second season run, comprised of ten full-length episodes.
Like season one, Hellier Two was completely self-funded, in large part almost entirely with the money that Hellier Season One made. Due to that small boost in resources, Karl managed to upgrade his equipment in order to further the cinematic feel that made season one so compelling to many viewers, yet still remain entirely self-produced.
Hellier seasons one and two combined cost less than 1/10th of the budget of a single episode of a traditional ghost show. Many on the team sacrificed television offers of starring roles, or development deals based on the goblins story. But this story was too important. It was too important to tell this story with honesty and to tell it in a way that would radically break paranormal standards.
