Ghost Adventurers Zak Bagans Salutes MPI for Igniting His Career

Meet Zak Bagans, MPI Alumnus

Zak Bagans is currently filming his 7th season of the Travel Channel's highest rated show; Ghost Adventurers. For over three years his show has gained more popularity and achieved higher ratings than Anthony Bourdain, Bizarre Foods, and Man vs. Food. In addition Zak is also Executive Producer on 3 other shows in production now for the network including working with Howard Stern's people on a "TMZ".
 
Zak recently had this to say about his experience with The Motion Picture Institute. “"MPI is the TRUE definition of an ELITE hands-on film school filled with the most knowledgeable and caring staff that can be offered....MPI set the stage for my successful career as a documentary filmmaker and Executive Producer...I am now filming my 7th season for my hit Travel Channel series "Ghost Adventures".”
 

About Zak

 
Zachary Alexander (Zak) Bagans (born on April 5, 1977) is the lead investigator and co-founder of the Ghost Adventures Crew organization, one of the largest worldwide network of professional paranormal investigators. Zak was born in Washington, D.C. and currently lives in Las Vegas, NV.
 
As a former skeptic, Zak says that his passion for investigating the paranormal resulted from a face-to-face encounter with the spirit of a suicidal woman in his apartment building in Trenton, MI, in 2002. He graduated from film school in MI.
 
Zak is known, and sometimes criticized for his aggressive and confrontational methods used during investigations; however, he maintains that he respects the afterlife and only provokes evil entities in order to elicit responses.
 
Zak has hosted and produced the “Ghost Adventures” series since the very beginning in 2008. In 2011, he hosted and produced the show “Paranormal Challenge” on the Travel Channel. Zak also narrated the Travel Channel special “Ultimate Travel: Legends of the Parks”, about paranormal activity in national parks.
 
Zak wrote a book with Kelly Crigger titled “Dark World: Into the Shadows with the Lead Investigator of the Ghost Adventures Crew”. The book debuted at number 18 on the New York Times Best Seller list on September 23, 2011.
 
In 2012, Zak will continue hosting and producing the “Ghost Adventures” Series; will launch his private clothes line called “DungeonWear”; will be in two music collaborations, one within the new Lords of Acid album, the song "Paranormal Energy" and another as the release of a full length album entitled "Necrofusion" with Praga Khan. He will also be working on other side projects, yet to be announced.
