Plan C: A Global Program Preparing for Disclosure   Plan C is designed to accomplish three objectives: (1) Prepare the global public for disclosure, (2) Influence the strategy for disclosure by terrestrial Controllers to achieve the most positive outcome for everyone, and (3) Send a message to the Visiting Others that we are really concerned, trying hard to prepare for and to implement disclosure, and that we expect them to honor the complexity of the problems we are trying to handle.
Bruce Maccabee, PhD
Tales of the Hawk  A retired AF colonel who worked at the Air Technical Intelligence Center at Wright Patterson AFB had his own "cover up" experiences
Jesse Marcel, Jr. MD Roswell and other Wonders

Thomas Valone, PhD The Energy Technology of UFOs    Dr. Valone's 28-year search for future energy and propulsion designs was initiated by an investigation into a UFO story, including a reproduced generator which he tested. The field is ripe for engineering analysis of likely propulsion systems.  This investigation of the energy technology of UFO's provides fruitful insights for civilian back-engineering in order to catch up to covert operations which only benefit the military.
Victor Viggiani / Mike Bird

Touched A few years ago, Harvard psychiatrist John Mack, a leading researcher in the alien encounter phenomenon, approached Laurel Chiten after seeing her recent film The Jew in the Lotus. He wanted her to consider making a movie about encounters with these alien life forms. She told him no. She knew next to nothing about alien abduction, had no interest and thought it was all rather foolish. Then, he invited her to meet some of the people who claim to have had these experiences. They seemed rather normal and spoke about their feelings of connection and longing for these uninvited intruders to return. She had stumbled into a world filled by people who had been touched by something ... and had their lives blown apart because of it. She was mesmerized.

This started her journey into the lives and minds of alleged abductees around the world, and into her own personal journey through skepticism, fear, insomnia, fascination, confusion and led to many many questions.  What happens when the unexplained intrudes into our lives, and how do lives and relationships respond when credulity is strained to a breaking point?  This is the leading question she set out to explore. This is a film about the human experience — about longing for connection and fear of separation.

When a person is confronted by something that is so powerful, so indescribably outside the realm of everyday life, it forces a reexamination of everything previously taken for granted. The experience redefines every relationship: with one's self, family, and reality itself.

Following the lead of those like Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell the audience will witness an archetypal “Hero's Journey.”  For the subjects of this film, this experience has resulted in a kind of Holy Grail search for truth.  Beneath the sensational aspects of alien abduction, these are real people looking for answers. Touched follows a human quest to solve a mystery — perhaps only to find that the answer is the quest itself.

Who Am I ? Why are we here? What is our purpose for existence?

It is said that there are some 200 galaxies for every person on earth. In consideration of the scope of this realization, there should not be any question of whether we are alone in the vast infinity of space and beyond... to consider the possibility that assistance is being offered to us in the midst of amazing and profound planetary changes.

Odyssey chronicles the intense personal journey of Santa Fean Joyce Libutti, an "ordinary" wife and mother whose profound and startling encounters with benevolent alien beings have transformed her life and motivated her to risk telling her story -- and theirs -- to the world.

Phoenix Lights Celebrating the 11th anniversary of the historic and still unexplained Arizona mass sighting of 1997 with riveting new data and personal interviews in this updated version of the internationally acclaimed and award winning Documentary.   The project is a collaborative effort between Lynne D. Kitei, M.D. (Executive Producer/Director, Author & Key Witness) and Steve Lantz (Producer, Director of Photography, Editor & Composer).   It is based on the bestselling book, The Phoenix Lights...A Skeptic's Discovery That We Are Not Alone, over 30 credible eyewitnesses, children, scientists, military, pilots and experts give compelling testimony to the reality of these mysterious global visitations.
Staya Erusa When Uri Geller astounded the world with his powers 35 years ago, he was invited to the farthest places, visited courts and talked with government officials.  Scientists were intrigued, but even the most prestigious laboratories studying Geller could not explain his talents.  The new film Staya Erusa - Find the Book of Knowledge describes what happened in those days and reveals the answers.  Its makers, Harry Beckers, Ronald Jan Heijn and Uri Geller, call it "a mission with a scope and reach only now becoming clear...." 

The top researchers in the world share the pros and cons of disclosure and what the implications would be in today's society.  Some believe that nothing will be the same - including religion and politics - once full disclosure is made.  Produced by Paranormal Matrix Productions
