This project's funding goal was not reached on May 1, 2014.

Eight scientists and UFOlogists break into a top-secret alien artifact repository... and a world of pure terror.

About this project

THE BACKGROUND

On Feb 24, 2014, an Internet link was posted to a small paranormal image board. It was streaming content with nothing more than the description “Watch this.”

The number of viewers peaked at 1846 before the stream went dead.

Some quickly realized what they were watching would be life-changing. Those with the capabilities to record rushed to do so. The earliest known recording starts about six minutes after the stream went live.

It needed to be shared.

This is that footage, finally released to the public.

It is stunning, perception altering… and real.

THE SECRET

Between 2008 and 2013 the repository of alien artifacts and U.F.O. files was moved from Area 51.

A small group of Army engineers were commissioned to build a new facility 65 miles to the northwest at Tonopah Air Force Base, officially designated Area 52. After the Top-Secret underground facility was complete the entire team was killed in a “tragic accident.”

One man, however, survived and escaped. Filled with rage at the murder of his team, he became determined to get revenge by exposing the site's secrets. He gathered a small team of UFOlogists and scientists – some true believers, others absolute skeptics.

THE ENTRY TEAM

Captain Roger Reed – The lone survivor from the construction team that built Area 52’s underground repository. Devastated by the murder of his team he engineered and led the break-in.

Dr. Mitchell Harrison – a congenial, highly respected UFOlogist and psycho-therapist who specialized in the study of alien abduction.

Dr. James Cambridge – the stuffy head of the psychology department at a prestigious university, and a highly vocal skeptic in the area of UFOs and alien visitation.

Dr. Jan Thompson – a beautiful, compassionate biological physiologist. Her role was to confirm that the lifeforms in cryogenic storage at the vault were, indeed, alien.

Harley Stone - a hard, volatile, ex-special forces soldier who had been abducted by aliens multiple times throughout her life.

Robert Hunter – the physically imposing, yet charming host of the upcoming reality television series, Alien Hunter.

Faith and Hope Anderson – teenage sisters whose father was killed with Reed’s team. Both were computer and electronics experts. Faith entered the facility. Hope remained outside the base, parked in the desert in “mission control,” an RV outfitted with the electronics needed to live-stream the truth to the world.

THE MISSION

Despite violent clashes of personalities and beliefs, the ragtag team managed to pull together long enough to succeed with a simple but ingenious plan that got them into the underground vaults. Unfortunately, due to a power shutdown, two aliens in a cryonic chamber thawed out, trapping the small group in the dark underground chambers with deadly creatures not of this world.

The results were absolutely terrifying.  Manuvering through the claustrophobic hallways of the underground facility the seven intruders never knew what turning the next corner would bring — wondrous proof of exactly when, where, and why aliens have been visiting our planet… or sudden, horrific death.

In the end, it was both.

STYLE

Each member of the documentary team was fitted with video cameras. They also managed to tap a video feed into the facility’s security cameras. The footage they captured – every secret they discovered, each desperate moment they experienced – was streamed off-site to where Hope, working like a video director of a live sporting event, frantically cut from camera-to-camera as it was broadcast live over the Internet.

Vaults below AREA 52
Vaults below AREA 52

The movie-going public will see the captured footage exactly as it was originally streamed. There are no jumps in continuity whatsoever - every minute is filled so the entire experience takes place over 90-minutes straight through. The result of this first-person video game style is the viewer will feel as if they were there

This is not a static “found footage” film where nothing happens for 90% of the movie. The first shocking death – vintage military footage of a captive alien attack – is shared in the opening five minutes. Once trapped in the underground chambers with reanimated aliens, the real time horror comes fast and furious.

CAMERA UPDATE!

We are thrilled to announce a new member of our team! Julian Thomas, the creator of the Racelogic high-def mini camera has agreed to let us use this cutting-edge technology for our shoot! These amazing cameras from England, designed for racecars, are not only tiny but they have a built-in anti-jiggle feature that no other camera we've seen has. When our characters run - and boy, they better! - our picture will remain fairly stable. So cool! You can learn more about these incredible cameras at www.racelogic.co.uk.

PRODUCTION

We have already secured locations for Area 52, both above ground and below. The abandoned Nevada state prison will double for the exteriors and office interiors. The underground vault facility is an actual location... and top-secret... but we have an inside contact.

INTERESTING TRIVIA ABOUT US

Producer Ken Parker, Director/Writer Rory Johnston, Camera Operator Dan Ischo, and set designer Adam Turner all met at church! Rory was Creative Arts Director, Ken was turning out amazing videos on a weekly basis, some of which were shot by Dan, who also operated a camera on Billy Topit Master Magician, a film directed and starring magician Lance Burton, in which Rory played the villain. Robert Routin not only builds sets, he has acted in Rory's projects and Rory has acted in his. Several of our publicity people, Robin Joyce, Tay Tay Singer, and our poster designer Shad Fox are also friends who attend our church. Does it seem odd that we should be doing a horror film? Naw! We love great entertainment!

MULTIMEDIA!

One interesting aspect to our movie experience is our planned multimedia backup. We are creating websites for our scientist and UFOlogist characters, and Facebook pages for the twin sisters, Faith and Hope. Viewers who wonder if our story is fiction or if it actually happened can go to the Internet to check the facts – they’ll find everything referred to in the film can be documented through multiple sources. Kinda cool, and we don't think it's ever been done. Could this thing cause a sensation, like Orson Welles' 1938 radio broadcast of War of the Worlds? Be kinda fun if it did, huh?

Please join our family!  Give generously!

CLOSE-UP ON SOME OF THE REWARDS

YOUR PERSONAL MAGIC SHOW! Rory Johnston has headlined in Las Vegas and on high-end cruise ships throughout the world. He will come to your home, or any venue you select, and perform a full comedy magic show for you and your friends. (After July, dependent on Rory's schedule. Travel and accommodations not included.)

OR

MAGIC FOR GRANDPARENTS As performed by Rory on cruise ships around the world, this is a close-up magic show with a cool twist - you get to learn how the tricks are done! Then you can perform for your grandchildren. Be the Mary Poppins of grandmas! The Dumbledore of grandpas! Invite your friends to experience it with you. It's a blast.

MYSTERIES OF THE MIND MAGIC SHOW! Paul Draper’s "Mysteries of the Mind" is interactive entertainment where audience members become the stars of the show when Paul reads their minds! He asks audience members to think of a fairy tale or song, and then immediately tells them which one they're thinking of. He has the audience work in teams, and shows them how they can read each others minds. He ends by psychically finding and describing objects, people and places while completely blindfolded in layers of duct tape. Sounds incredible? Phenomenal? Unbelievable? Just wait until you experience it live!  (After July, dependent on Paul's schedule. Travel and accommodations not included.)

Actor/Performer Paul Draper

JOIN THE RESISTANCE!

We need your help to get the truth out! It will take considerable funds to get this film produced. The REWARDS are great and our way of sharing the excitement and thanking you for helping us release this footage to the world!

Risks and challenges

HOW CAN WE SHOOT THIS WITH SUCH A SMALL BUDGET?

A number of factors come into play. First and foremost, many key players are deferring payment until after the film is released, including the writer/director, producers, editor, composer, production designer, poster and storyboard artists. We will all profit-share in the film. If the movie doesn’t make money, neither do we.

The crew is working for absolute minimal salary, but they too will own points in the film.

We’re hoping to get the atmosphere people we need as soldiers at Area 52 from people who contribute to the film and want to be a part of it.

Many of us will be doubling up on duties: editing, helping build sets, props, costumes, craft services, and so on.

A lot of items have been donated by people who believe in the project, including three of the five primary sets.

CASTING
As you can read from the above description - which we hope gives you an idea of the reality feel of the film - we cannot use name actors. A recognizable face will kill the illusion of a real documentary. Not having big stars is a plus in keeping the budget low. It could be a challenge for marketing, but there are many films in recent years that have done extremely well without a name cast, including the Paranormal Activity films, Apollo 18, [Rec]2, Chronicle, Project X. Quarantine, Cloverfield, and others. We've already been offered a distribution deal. We also plan to submit to film festivals to stir more excitement.

POST PRODUCTION?
Almost all the post-production expenses have been cut from the budget – for now. First we want to get the film made, then we’ll worry about publicity, film festivals, prints, and so on.

SCHEDULE
This is a very fast shoot - 2 weeks! How can we possibly do that? Good question.

First, it helps to have a D.P who knows how to shoot fast and efficiently. Howard is one of the best and most experienced in the biz.

Second, several full days of rehearsal with the amazing cast.

Third, because this is a documentary, we can shoot 9 - 14 pages of dialogue in as many minutes, with a single camera and no cuts. We shot test footage and got through a 14-page scene three times in three hours! Now, granted, not every scene in the film in conducive to this, but it does help to understand that two major scenes are, which saves us a tremendous amount of time with new set-ups.

Shooting is scheduled for July 2014.

SPECIAL EFFECTS
Nothing messes up an alien movie more than a cheesy alien. With that in mind, the largest portion of our budget is dedicated to our special effects. Because of the gritty, visceral nature of the film, we're doing our 3 aliens live on set as practical effects. Roy Wooley, who many know from the popular Syfy television show Faceoff will create our creatures. Those of you familiar with his work know they will be original and fantastic. He will also handle the other on-set FX, including several very creative deaths. One of our wonderful REWARDS is a chance to work with him on his team!

TOPPING OUR GOAL
Of course we’d like to raise more than the absolute minimum. Hopefully we’ll meet and surpass our goal, but the all-or-nothing nature of Kickstarter dictates we go for the minimum amount we need to make the film and provide some awesome rewards for you, our generous supporters.

So that’s how we cut the original budget of $550,000 down to a more realistic Kickstarter campaign of $124,000.
That’s still a lot of money, and without your support nobody will get to see this very cool film. Please be generous!
