WISP was a popular web series that first aired on YouTube in 2013, created by Maddie Gauthier, the mind behind MaddyGTV. The show was a supernatural thriller that revolved around the afterlife, ghosts, and unexplained phenomenons that people encounter throughout their lives.

The plot followed a high school student named Alex, played by Kaitlyn Waite, who was able to see ghosts. Alex had a mysterious past that always remained shrouded in mystery, and throughout the series, her past was slowly unraveled. Alex met a group of people who also had different supernatural abilities and shared similar experiences to hers. These people included Jo, played by Elyse Najemian, who could astral project; Cody, played by Cody Kearsley, who could speak with dead animals, and Kayla, played by Kayla Hutton, who had psychometry abilities.

As the show began, Alex had just moved to a new town and was trying to fit into her new school and make new friends. However, her supernatural abilities were making it hard for her to adjust and not draw attention to herself. Eventually, she met her group of friends, and together they began exploring the supernatural occurrences that happened around their town.

The show had a unique take on ghosts and the afterlife. Rather than portraying them as scary and malevolent, the ghosts in WISP were more like lost souls who needed help in moving on. They often had unfinished business or were reluctant to leave their loved ones behind. Therefore, the characters in the show made it their mission to help these ghosts find closure so that they could rest in peace. This made for a compelling storyline as Alex and her friends navigated through different people's lives and helped them find peace.

The show had a distinct visual style that helped enhance its supernatural tone. The cinematography and lighting were often eerie and moody, which perfectly set the tone for the show. The camera often lingered on the characters' faces for a few seconds more than usual, giving the audience a glimpse into their inner thoughts and emotions. Apart from the visual style, the show's music also stood out. The soundtrack was composed by Ryan Latham and helped create a haunting atmosphere that was prevalent throughout the show.

One of the other great things about WISP was its characters. Each character had their own unique quirks and personalities, and they all had excellent chemistry with one another. The show did a great job of balancing the supernatural elements with the characters' everyday lives. While the show did explore ghostly encounters and otherworldly happenings, it also showed how the characters' supernatural abilities affected their daily lives, relationships, and personal struggles.

The showrunners also did an excellent job of creating a sense of mystery and suspense that kept the audience hooked. Throughout the show's runtime, there were many unanswered questions about the characters' past, present, and future. WISP always left the audience with something to ponder upon, and the show always managed to surprise the viewers with every new episode.

In conclusion, WISP was a standout web series that explored the supernatural and the afterlife in an engaging and unique way. The show had great characters, excellent visual style, and a compelling storyline that kept the audience engaged. Maddie Gauthier's direction and writing were exemplary, and she managed to create a show that was both haunting and heartwarming at the same time. WISP was a truly memorable show that fans of both the supernatural genre and coming-of-age stories will enjoy.
