SYNOPSIS

"I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world."
- Ronald Reagan 1988

Was Reagan right?

If aliens arrived on Earth, would we come together and see the best in each other like we saw in the aftermath of the attacks on our nation on Sept. 11 or would we see even greater divisions like the political chasm that came out of Hurricane Katrina?

That's what "Gifts of Paradise" is all about.

 Gifts of Paradise is told in the form of a newscast like War of the Worlds, Special Bulletin and Looking Glass. Unlike those films, our project examines media, racism, health care, politics and the divisions that currently plague our nation.
We have a powerful script and a great cast that does an amazing job telling this important story.
Good science fiction uses our ideas, and fears, about the future and  technology to examine deeper social issues. This films accomplishes that.

We've already filmed about 75 percent of this amazing project and need help with completion funds to finish this amazing journey.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The biggest challenge I face after I complete this project is distribution. I am not a known commodity in the movie industry, and in the entertainment business usually studios want a big name connected to projects. This is why we have to create a powerful, intriguing and entertaining project that is well edited and well thought out. With your support and backing we can complete that goal.
Thank you for your consideration.
