We are “The Proper People”, two filmmakers who have explored and filmed hundreds of abandoned places over the past three years – Ask Us Anything!
The two of us, Michael and Bryan, have been exploring abandoned places and creating videos of these adventures on our YouTube channel “The Proper People” for the past few years. We’ve been lucky enough to explore all kinds of abandoned places such as theme parks, asylums, prisons, malls, cathedrals, and even a nuclear power plant. What started out as a curiosity for us has turned into a passion, and we strive to bring this appreciation of abandoned and historic places to others through our videos.
Right now we are trying to raise funds to create a 5 part documentary series about urban exploration called “Forbidden Explorers.” This is a passion project that we’ve been planning for over a year now, with the goal of telling a more meaningful story about the culture of urban exploration than what’s been done before. If you’re interested in history, adventure documentaries, or just the surreal aesthetic of abandoned places, I can promise you’ll love it. If you’re interested you can check out the Kickstarter page here!
The two of us will both be answering questions with this account, signed with an initial (M or B) to signify who is answering. We'll start answering questions around 6pm EST and try to stay around as long as we can.
EDIT: We enjoyed answering all your questions! We're wrapping up the AMA now.
