StoryEditThe First video was the Introduction stating that in 2004, Darren Steene began working on a Student Title for class called GreySkies, During Mid 2004, The production inevitably halted then was cancelled, when the uploader asked what was going to happen with the tapes. Darren simply stated "Burn them", After some convincing, The Uploader was able to get the tapes from him but to never mention them or the film to him... Darren finally left. One other person who was involved with the film also stayed in town (Believed to be Tim).
During the First couple of videos, There was no threatening presence but distortion was present. As the uploads progressed, the distortion became more common and the tall man began to appear more threatening. After the first three uploads, ThePropheteer began replying with his videos and began harassing the uploader.
Currently more tapes have been discovered in the uploader's desk and is in the process of uploading them.
