Third Shift Conspiracy 3D Wall Calendar and eBook Package

This might be the first time in history that 3D ghosts have come to the aid of soldiers and their rescued dogs. - Ed Raeker, Creator of the 'Third Shift'

Ten years ago, the C.I.A. deployed a special team of three highly skilled soldiers with a top-secret 3D surveillance camera on a top-secret mission to verify or disprove paranormal activity at 12 hotspots across the western United States. No one was prepared for what they would deliver - terrifying photographic evidence of real ghosts. Their mission was abruptly terminated and the soldiers of the ‘Third Shift’ disappeared without a trace. Today, the chilling images captured during their harrowing mission are beginning to surface and evidence is accumulating that the soldiers of the ‘Third Shift’ are still alive, living as fugitives from a government that wants their silence. This collection of images and the stories behind them is dedicated to the brave soldiers of the ‘Third Shift’ and making public the startling 3D ghost images that we were never meant to see.

From the creator of the ‘Third Shift’:

“Take a wall calendar: already useful in its own right but kinda ordinary. Rethink that calendar. Design it around a fascinating true story and stunning ghost pictures, then add the third dimension - as in FULL 3D! Attach a companion eBook packed with the ghost stories behind those images. Add some fun bonus swag like a ‘Third Shift Conspiracy’ LED light-up pen, a glow-in-the-dark silicone bracelet and an expanding story-world of online content. Finally, add a great cause - how about giving 51% of all after-tax profits to veterans’ charities? Sounds to me like we have the makings of the most unique and paranormally awesome holiday gift of the season!” said Cryptonym Media’s Founder and Creative Director, Edward Raeker.
