Really cool find, so a S&F. I do believe in ghosts, and do have an open mind. But until someone can prove any different, this (in my mind) will be
nothing more than a reflection from somebody walking past or near a different light source.
Even if this was a shadow, wouldn't we see a person from this angle across the archway? It must be either CGI (which wouldn't suprise me)...or I
guess; a ghost! The shadow isn't at the correct degree for a person to cause it before reaching camera shot across the open space.

I don't think CNN would have spent time to make such a modification. This TV show had to be made very quickly and it's impossible they chose to
erase somebody's silhouette, they would have left him/her as it was no big deal to see somebody walking in this room.
In my opinion, this is just the shadow of somebody walking outside.
The "ghost" appears and disappears within the doorway to that room. I think some of you are not being honest with yourselves. I enjoyed the mans
music also, but a shadow is a shadow. It's not being cast by someone near the camera man, and it's not being cast by someone outside the hallway.
It's someone in the far room.
At the end of the hallway the room has a light on a stand, most likely more than one (You can see one pointing away from the camera, right in the
center of the doorway). Someone in that room walked by a light and projected their shadow onto the wall.
How come no one else is casting shadows in the house that large? What an obvious way to attract our attention. Maybe ghosts have slightly more to
project that us breathing living creatures...what with the sudden repression they must be facing!!!!
If you freeze the frame correctly you can see that the upright 'ghost' feature actually bends on the mantle piece in two positions. This clearly
suggests a shadow...However saying that, there is no reason to suggest a ghost isn't displayed as light. After all, we see the light from 'stars'
that are dead from millions of years ago...no pun intended.
This is an amazing find! The first time I watched it I thought a crew member or someone was just walking by in a far room. I have watched that part of
the video numerous times and this is what I think. It does look like a ghost to me! I have stopped the video at the precise time and you can tell that
it is not a shadow off of a wall. The image is crossing the hallway possibly from some room on the left to a room on the right. The more you watch the
more you can tell that the image is of a small frame person with shoulder length hair! Very fascinating!
S&F for you!
It is indeed just a shadow on the wall. I downloaded the video, expanded the area, set it to high quality, and here is how that looked
there is a angled wall at the beginning, the shadow emerges from the corner, and seems to be elongated, as if someone is passing close to a
lightsource, the shadow then moves across more, it squishes up at the corner..you see the shadow reflected from the wall down the hall, giving it the
appearance of "legs", when in reality its just the highly polished floor reflecting the shadow..the shadow gets thinner the more it goes (which
happens when your walking away from a light source).
So, my theory is that this is just a shadow of someone in the other room (the most convincing part being of course where the shadow seems to merge
with the overhead lamp shadow..
