Part One

Mike, a local college student, needed a last-minute project to pass his Documentary 102 class. He thought following his friends John, Emmett and Greg at Senor Agua Pool Cleaners on a routine pool cleaning job would be boring but passable. What he captured on film that fateful day was neither boring nor passable. Could this pool be haunted by an angry spirit? Join amateur ghost chasers Emmett and Greg as they try to find out, and John as he attempts to keep them from being fired.

Part Two

GHOST ATTACK! Or is it? Has Emmett found evidence of the paranormal, or can he just not swim? Emmett and Greg ramp up their efforts to draw out the ghost and save sweet Laurel, while John just wants to save their jobs. Will Emmett win Laurel's heart? Will Greg find any useful information on the internet?

Part Three

Part Four

The final showdown! Emmett makes one last, desperate gambit to banish the ghost: a seance. This is it! It all ends here! (For now.) Who will run away? Who will stand and fight? And who will get that girl's number? The answers to these questions and more in the earth-shaking conclusion of "Bumps in the Night, part 1!"

Laurel began acting at 5 years old, and in her early years often in self directed, written, and cast plays (aka drafted her friends, forced them into costumes and made them perform). She began her real acting career at Drexel University in Philadelphia where she met the hilariously insane ghost hunting cast of Bumps in the Night. She made her way to LA in late 2004 and has been pursing a career in film, commercials and strike tv webisodes ever since.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA, John Leonetti moved to Los Angeles in 1994. He has been involved in the Hollywood community for over fourteen years. Since 1998, he has been a proud member of the Set Lighting Technicians local #728.

Hard work and a little luck has allowed John to have extended stints on TV shows such as “Profiler,” “Providence,” “The X-Files” (6th and 7th seasons), and shows as recent as “Numb3rs” and Showtime's “The Cell.” His film work includes long runs on “Spiderman,” “Terminator 3,” “Envy,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” and work as recent as HBO's “Mrs. Harris” and Lion's Gate's “Akeelah and the Bee.”

The desire to pursue more creative endeavors led to the co-founding of Altered Visions in 2004 with longtime friend and Hollywood professional Edward C. Bartel II. Altered Visions is a company specializing in enhancing a client's creative ideas through all aspects of flimmaking: pre-production, production and post-production.

As a sidenote, John's early career in television and films can best be summed with the first four plot keywords that come up in his IMDB profile: female nudity, independent film, sex and answering machine.

Born and raised in Detroit, Ed Bartel's friends consider him the Swiss Army knife of filmmaking. There's not an aspect of filmmaking he's not familiar with. He has been a member of Set Lighting Technicians local 728 for ten years.

Over the years, Ed honed his various talents by producing and directing several TV commercials and gaffing some of the highest-profile music videos of the last ten years, for artists such as Sisqo, LeAnn Rimes, Elton John, Foxy Brown and Usher. He has worked as a set lighting technician on the TV shows “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “E.R.” (seasons 12 and 13), and feature films including “The Time Machine.”

Ed went on to produce several documentaries, including one on John Carter, the first African-American film editor, and another on the Samoan culture called Fa'a Samoa.

Ed's extensive experience allows him to understand the full sphere of the business, which in turn helps his clients create the best possible project they can.

Nick was once told that, to be successful, you have to pick one thing & stick to it. He promptly took that advice, chopped it up into bite-size chunks, threw it into a pot, and made a wonderful autumn stew. Nick has been an actor, singer/songwriter & musician - with equal vigor & dedication. He studied acting & music at Rutgers University's Mason Gross School of the Arts, continuing on to places such as the Actors Alliance in NYC. His acting credits include lead roles in the Manhattan stage productions of "Smoking Newports & Eating French Fries," "UnderAddress", "Titanic Voices", and the musical, "Marianela.” His Films include "Green Light", "PIL", and "Emotion In Motion." On TV, Nick has done "Sex & the City", “One Life To Live”, and played the famous Lindbergh baby kidnapper, Bruno Hauptmann, to whom he bears a disturbing resemblance. Nick has also done commercials for Spike TV & Pep Boys, and a starring role in the short-lived web sitcom, “Home Sweet Cube”. His favorite project, however, is the hit web sitcom mocumentary, “This End Up”, which you can see at www.feenixfilms.com. Nick is a rock/pop singer/songwriter, with an extensive catalog of solo recordings. He is now the lead singer for the band, REC, whose debut CD, Parts & Labour, dropped like an h-bomb last year, and can be heard at www.cdbaby.com/rec. Nick has also composed & recorded scores for “This End Up”, “Bumps in the Night”, the film "Kismet," and the Cherry Lane production of "Masquerade," among others.

Nick has been an actor, singer/songwriter & musician - with equal vigor & dedication. He studied acting & music at Rutgers University's Mason Gross School of the Arts, continuing on to places such as the Actors Alliance in NYC. His acting credits include lead roles in the Manhattan stage productions of "Smoking Newports & Eating French Fries," "UnderAddress", "Titanic Voices", and the musical, "Marianela.” His Films include "Green Light", "PIL", and "Emotion In Motion." On TV, Nick has done "Sex & the City", “One Life To Live”, and played the famous Lindbergh baby kidnapper, Bruno Hauptmann, to whom he bears a disturbing resemblance. Nick has also done commercials for Spike TV & Pep Boys, and a starring role in the short-lived web sitcom, “Home Sweet Cube”. His favorite project, however, is the hit web sitcom mocumentary, “This End Up”, which you can see at www.feenixfilms.com. Nick is a rock/pop singer/songwriter, with an extensive catalog of solo recordings. He is now the lead singer for the band, REC, whose debut CD, Parts & Labour, dropped like an h-bomb last year, and can be heard at www.cdbaby.com/rec. Nick has also composed & recorded scores for “This End Up”, “Bumps in the Night”, the film "Kismet," and the Cherry Lane production of "Masquerade," among others.

I knew John would end up with the girl's number...what a pimp! Watching this show makes me want to get a pool, just so I can have Emmett, Greg and John pay me a visit!

Wait wait wait, Maz. I remember once Greg made me a sandwich.... no wait... it was a screwdriver...and come to think of it Ben made me the screwdriver.

Nevermind. Play on Playa. Looking forward to Part 4. :-)

DJ Heany G, OUT!!!!

Finally, Part 3!

Though I have to say, for a comedy, the drama was pretty deep when we almost saw Greg prepare food.

My connection at work sucks, so I've only seen about three seconds of the first part. But, hearing on line from Greg makes me burst into laughter and then gives me Drexel Players flashbacks. It's all very weird and confusing for me. Keep it up.

Nice job - very funny & well-produced! I'll definitely be stopping back for more.
