Both Richard, Jared and other team members of Paranormal Now investigations have been fortunate enough to have featured in a number of media outlets over the past decade throughout our Paranormal investigations in Wales.
Working with news papers, film makers, journalists, bloggers and other organisations to raise awareness of the Paranormal within the South Wales community, highlight different cases we have been a part of. (With the support of the families we have helped of course), and use the Paranormal as a way of highlighting local history.
This section of our site is dedicated to highlighting some of the wonderful projects we are so grateful to have been a part of the years and some of the articles that have highlighted our work, and the work.
In Search of the Dead – Paranormal Scholar.
In 2017 we answered a notice that went out through Facebook to work with Youtubers Erik and Laura from the Paranormal Scholar Youtube channel on their film project “In Search of the Dead.”
Working with these guys over the course of the last few years has been an absolute joy, and the journey of which producing this film has taken them on has been inspirational, as we know how difficult a feat this was to produce both personally and professionally.
What resulted from this journey, was one of the most profound Paranormal documentaries you will ever watch. “In Search of the Dead” is profoundly entertaining, inspirational and above all informative. We would recommend this film for anyone who is beginning their own journey into the Paranormal, for the sheer honesty and authenticity these guys show.
Below is the trailer from “In Search of the Dead” and why not check out some of their other videos while your there.

What happens after we die? After researching anomalous phenomena for many years, Laura decided to embark upon a journey of discovery in search of proof of life after death. "In Search of the Dead" follows her across Europe as she interviews renowned academics and experts, and shadows experienced ghost hunters and paranormal investigators. As an open-minded sceptic, her intention is to observe and document the different opinions surrounding the ever-increasing belief in the existence of spirits of the dead. Yet, before too long she realises that, when handling such emotive subject matter, it is not always possible to remain an unaffected observer.
"In Search of the Dead"is an independently funded documentary film produced by husband and wife team, Erik and Laura, through their production company Ethereal Productions.

Cardiff University Student Projects

Paranormal Activities DocumentaryIs communicating with spirits a ‘normal’ activity? For Jared and Richard who talk on a daily basis with dead people, it seems to be.
“I had paranormal experiences since I was a kid” explains Richard. “I could hear and see things that I knew very few people could”.
Talking to the Dead will ask one main question: Is ghost-hunt crazy, or are dead’s spirits really all around us?
Paranormal Activities- Helping ghostFriday night in the open space beside the Llandaff Cathedral, the investigation team called Paranormal Now is going to look for ghosts and bring them peace. The core members of this team are psychic Richard and researcher Jared who are experienced paranormal investigators.

You can read the article here, and the video below shows some of the amazing evidence captured during this investigation.
Spirits validate historic monument, Orbs caught on camera, amazing EVPs at Abergavenny Chronicle!Spirits validate historic monument on Ghost box. Orbs caught on camera, amazing EVPs and direct responses at Abergavenny Chronicle investigation (Trailer).
A massive thank you to everyone who works for Abergavenny Chronicle for inviting us on not just one but two investigations, one for you guys on Youtube and the other for members of the public, and what amazing evidence we had. On Saturday 28th of April 2018, Paranormal Now were privileged to be part of an investigation into the offices of the old Elizabethan building steeped in history and amazing stories of Paranormal events, the building has been a hub for the local community since the mid 1990s and the stories of the building date back some several hundred years.
Due to traffic diversions we arrived slightly later than planned but it was not long before the investigation got underway. With the group convening in the library, being introduced to dowsing rods and the K2 metre, along with a test of the Shack hack ghost box which gave tremendous validation as it was reacting to orbs appearing on camera.
This trailer shows the best of the nights evidence, but with plenty more to come for both investigations. This is amazing evidence as we had reference to a monument called Jessie which had recently been moved, and it seemed that perhaps someone was not happy with it. As the responses given offer this impression
We also had 2 very distinct EVPs, along with a strange signal on the EMF k2 metre which seemed to be linked to a spirit in the building called Nathan, who asked for help during the séance to cross over to spirit.
Is this evidence of the Paranormal you decide.

A lady in the Cardiff area, called in Paranormal Investigators because she wanted to move out of her council house after experiencing disturbances and poltergeist activity over several weeks.
The local media had also been involved and reported on the incident, also joining Richard on the investigation. Richard describes his thoughts when approaching the case as being slightly anxious but also aware that he should show no fear.
The spirit who's intentions were quite negative, turned out to be a negative attachment that was feeding off negative energy and fear. Other spirits would also make their presence known during the case through a series of photographs which are also discussed in the video.
Jared and those watching this wednesday's Now debate asked Richard about his experience and some of the things you should do if you find you have an uninvited guest in your home.
