Steve Genier – SOPS
We would like to welcome Steve Genier the Founder and lead investigator of Southern Ontario Paranormal Society (SOPS).
Richard: Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you came to be interested in pursuing the paranormal?
Steve: Involved with the film industry off and on since 1997. In several capacities including cinematography, writing as well as editing. Though I have been interested with or in the paranormal since I was a kid with an experience I had had when I was 13 years old. Shortly after graduating from film school was when I decided to research and investigate the paranormal. Use techniques I had learned in film school to try and gather evidence. 2005, I decided to share and network with others in the field by forming Southern Ontario Paranormal Society (SOPS).
Richard: I see you have a number of team members. Are they assigned specific jobs on an investigation or are they permitted to basically follow their own personal objectives?
Steve: They are open to experiment in areas that interest them the most within the several aspects available in an investigation. I feel that in order to get best results, it’s always good to leave things open and to never discount elements that may help us understand.
Richard: During an investigation does your team always agree on what seems to be occurring?
