j3FILMS would like to heap tons of praise on the distribution team at The Orchard for all their hard work to help us bring this important story to the widest audience possible. Our goal from day one was not to make a film about UFO phenomena but to share a human story that would hopefully allow audiences to get a glimpse into what it’s like to be an experiencer.
Stan Romanek’s story is polarizing, and we knew that going in. As you can see by the reviews of the film on Amazon and iTunes, people are either intrigued or they dislike it. We made the film to stimulate conversation among the widest audience possible in effort to move the discussion into the mainstream. Haters gonna hate, and that’s fine. But there’s a reason for negative responses, and getting the good along with the bad out in the open creates an lively discourse, and there is nothing wrong with that either.
If you’ve already watched the film, thank you. If you’ve been waiting for it to show up on Netflix, today’s you’re lucky day! We encourage all previous viewers to gather friends and watch the movie again. Once the film is over, ask one simple question to begin an engaging conversation: What if this is all real?
If you don’t have Netflix, the film is still available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Xbox, PlayStation and a variety of other digital platforms. Just click this link to watch the film.
A big thank you to everyone who has supported this project and all who desire to keep the conversation going. Cheers!
On Sunday (Sept. 11), I was a guest on ARIRA Radio UFO Live FM. ARIRA — the Aerospace Research Investigation Reporting Agency — is dedicated to research focused on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and other anomalous activity related to UFOs. The topic of Sunday’s two-hour show: the Stan Romanek alien abduction case.
The show’s hosts, Richard Lang and Denise Stoner, were particularly interested in hearing me talk about some of the strange things that the principles of j3FILMS have experienced since becoming involved in this project. Specifically, they wanted to know about Stan Romanek’s abductions, strange phone calls and alien hybrid children. Suffice to say, I gave them everything they wanted and more.
After a brief introduction by Lang, I proceeded to talk — basically uninterrupted — for the entire two-hour block. What’s amazing about this is that the hosts didn’t want me to stop talking. At one point, I actually stopped and asked if they wanted to say anything, but they told me to please continue. They were riveted by what I had to say, which has become typical whenever we talk to people about the Romanek case and our plans for the documentary. According to Lang, it was the “fastest” show they have ever done. I guess that should be expected when UFOs, alien hybrid children, abductions and high strangeness are commonplace within a single case, and believe me, they are the norm with Stan Romanek.
One of the most interesting aspects of working on the Stan Romanek project is that — as we research our subject matter — we begin to gain a better understanding of a truly profound mystery. As we dig deeper into Stan’s case and the alien abduction phenomenon as a whole, we’re collecting an abundance of credible testimony and authoritative research that clarifies and validates the bizarre and life-changing experiences affecting thousands of people across the globe.
The similarities in the encounters described by abductees can’t be ignored. Budd Hopkins, a well-respected researcher and New York Times bestselling author of three seminal books on the UFO abduction phenomenon, has personally investigated hundreds of cases and found that not only are the same things reported again and again, but they’re reported in the same sequence, which makes them very different from a fantasy or hallucination. Most compelling, he cites, is the fact that many of these cases are emerging from remote regions in Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Argentina and New Guinea — places where people are essentially illiterate, isolated and unexposed to other cultural images of UFOs and aliens.
Stan isn’t from a remote village in Siberia, but his experiences fit the abduction pattern and include missing time, strange marks on his body, and blocked memories of being taken aboard a spacecraft and examined by alien-looking creatures. Other aspects of his case go well beyond the “textbook” abduction scenario. The implications of his experiences are staggering and will be explored in detail in the documentary.
