    No, though the cast & crew continually tried to scare the crap out of me, sometimes a little successfully, I might add.

    In a nutshell, it's the 3rd floor of a decommissioned hospital, with the bottom two floors still used for clinic stuff, etc. All of their surgical, ICU, etc. has been moved to a brand new facility, this one having been built in the 60's. The section we were in was a NeoNatal (sp) facility, with four surgical rooms for infants, etc. all facing in towards each other (imagine standing in the center of a circle, with these doors surrounding you, each leading to a room that either saves your child, or they die in)...

    So needless to say, there have been deaths, possibly a lot, I'm unsure, that have occurred over the years on this floor, and specifically in the room(s) we were working in ... to the extent that the security guards will NOT come up to this floor alone, as there have been too many incidents that have happened of sightings, objects moving with no one touching them, etc. We spoke to multiple guards, and they all had their own personal stories about it, and/or the ones they've heard.

    One guard, the morning of our shoot, said he quit going up there about 2 years ago. His last time was when he had walked past all these doors, ensured they were locked, and simply went to the end of the hall to check another door. He walked past them again on his way back out, and all four doors were unlocked, and wide open. He never heard a sound, and he was the only person not only on the floor, but in the entire building at the time.

    Okay, I'm offline for a while ... looking forward to updating this more soon, as well as working on a BTS montage video of the day!

    Great location find!

    That sort of thing intrigues the s*%t out of me. If I were him, I'd get me a chair and sit up there and defy the ghosts to do something impressive. I attempted to do a sleepover on the third floor of the Victorian Mansion (where the lady died) but didnt get it to happen.

    Updated the front page. Steven, I could only fit 9 images (will figure a fix later), so feel free to delete some of yours, if you want to from the 2nd page.

    Oh, and thanks everyone. Like I've always said, "Surround yourself with people more talented than yourself", which I've been blessed enough to be able to do more than once, this time being no exception.

    This looks great! Can't wait to see it. I guess you'll get the prize for being the first to wrap. Awesome location.

    Cheers!

    Thanks. But, even if they were giving a prize out for it, I could never let us accept it ... we just lucked out that production hadn't began yet!

    Great screengrabs!

    I had to laugh when I read this- we shot a short out here in Utah in a rehabilitation center on an unused floor. It was a fantastic location- but the staff had also told us that the upper floors were haunted.
