James Dalzell is an actor, producer, improviser and rapper. When he is not pursuing his passions you can probably see him at the Penetanguishene Beer Store supplying the locals with the tasty beverage or dealing poker at Casino Rama. James was born and raised in Penetang but moved to Toronto in 2006 to attend The Toronto Film School’s Acting for Film, Television and Theatre program. After graduating in 2008 he hit the ground running. For the past 10 years he has been booking bit parts in film, television, commercials and was a regular in the Toronto comedy scene. He is thrilled to be back home in Penetang and working with some like minded and hard working talents. Always intrigued by the rich history and haunting stories of the area, it has been a dream of his to capture and share these stories with the world. Some notable credits include Howie Do It, Surviving Evil, Paranormal Survivor, Close Encounters, Motives and Murders and Web of Lies.

Whether you’re a paranormal fanatic or just really like hats this is a campaign you can get behind! Growing up in Penetang, James was always learning of hauntings and history in the area. The idea came to him over 10 years ago but is just coming to fruition now. After teaming up with The Midland Film Company and a rejected pitch by Bell FibeTV1 of another series it became apparent that the “Ghost Show” that James had thought of so many years before was ready for the world to see. Haunted Huronia was exactly what the network was looking for and gave the green light for a pilot episode. The pilot was so well received that the show was given the goahead on 8 more episodes. Thing is we have a very limited, shoestring budget and the episodes are not cheap to make. We are seeking your help to fund these 8 episodes and have added some really fun perks for your contributions. Always intrigued by the paranormal this show is a true dream project for James and the crew. Please help us continue this passion project.
