Private Project

The Undeparted

Our journey begins at a small unassuming Antique Shop in Marriottsville, MD, when a filmmaker purchases an antique item, and finds himself confronted by the idea of spirit attachments. Curiosity gets the better of him and he embarks on a journey to find out more about this shop and the people that surround it! This is a true and honest documentary, and what happens during the course of this film, really happened!

Director Biography - Chris McGuinness

I'm human, just like you, and I'm concerned about the future of humanity on this spacecraft we call call home, we call Earth. I want my children to grow up to be good people, and I want their generation and those that follow to enjoy this world and the beauty it now offers.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Maryland at Baltimore County, with a degree in Visual Arts. I have lived and worked in Los Angeles on indy films as a Film Editor and Director of Photography. I currently live in Maryland and produce, write, DP, and direct Documentary style films, small TV commercials, music videos, and non-profit films. I own a small production company called PulseCinema, that I am currently working hard to reboot after some health issues. As far as work, our team works hard and I believe the work we create, speaks for itself.

I have a wonderful wife and two terrific kids who amaze me every single day. I love to hike. (Acadia Park is a favorite) I have lived in several places, been to many more, driven across this country multiple times, enjoy cooking, playing old arcade games, hanging out with friends, meeting new people and hearing what makes them tick.

I hope our work opens doors to meet and work with new creative people.

The last three years have tough me that, "We never know what might be going on in someone else's life, so maybe we should cut each other a little slack."

Director Statement

This story I tell is true and not fabricated.

My personal life drew me into this shop, and my curiosity with interesting people and stories led to this film.

Producing this documentary has opened my mind to the possibliites of energy lingering and slowly dissipating with time, like a footprint in concrete.

There are things I wish we had had the budget to do, that I feel would have increased the emotional honesty of some of the things that happned during the process of filming, but I am really proud of the work our team did on this documentary film and I sincerly hope you will open your mind to the honesty and thoughtfullness of this film, on this subject.

Thank you.
