j3FILMS Stan Romanek documentary to tell a different side of the story

Documentary films can create awareness and clarity about misunderstood subjects, especially if they tell a common story in an uncommon way. Telling stories that have been told numerous times before rarely gets more than the choir’s attention, especially when the subject matter is unconventional. And even though Stan Romanek‘s alien abduction story is unique for numerous reasons, to many, it is “just another alien abduction story” lumped with thousands of others. And given the way Stan’s story has been portrayed in the media and on the web, they’d be right. Just Google “alien abduction” and you’ll get 2.74 million results! What if you Google “Stan Romanek”? More than 90,000 results. Just a tad overwhelming, huh?

As I learned many years ago in journalism school, “dog bites man” is not a news story, but “man bites dog” is.

Stan’s story, when lumped in with all the other alien abduction stories — and without context — is a “dog bites man” story. You could spend weeks falling down the Internet rabbit hole when researching alien abduction cases. There are thousands of them.

But how many of them spend time talking about how the abduction experience has impacted the individual? How it has changed his or her life, both positively and negatively? How it has affected them mentally, spiritually, politically? How it has affected his or her ability to interact with others? How it has challenged friendships and family relationships? Not much of this kind of info is readily available about Stan or any other experiencer.

We want to change that.

We want to tell a human story where man survives by overcoming all odds and is transformed in the process. People who have alien abduction experiences are no different from me or you — before their experiences. That’s the journey we want to take people on; the one that takes you into the lives of those most affected by experiences they had no choice in or control over.

The story we’re going to tell is unlike any other UFO abduction story because the emphasis will be on the people experiencing the events rather than just the events themselves. We’re coming from the POV that the events happened as Stan relates them, and we’ll spend time exploring what they have done to the individuals experiencing the phenomena.

The transformation of a humanity is just as much a part of the story as the evidence is. There is no doubt in our minds that this documentary film will be one of the very, very few “man bites dog” stories in the UFO and alien abduction film genre.

    Hi Jon,
    I must be stupid because I can’t find out how to watch the documentary on altpov.tv, can you tell me if there is a certain way I have to log in or what exactly needs to be done to download the doc.?
    Oh and I already purchased the movie just waiting for it to arrive! Thanks, Alan.

      Alan, we experienced some technical difficulties transferring the files to altPOV.tv today. Primary and backup options failed. Not going all intervention with this — maybe the 13th had something to do with it. Working through it now and will be available ASAP. Thanks for hanging in there a little longer.

    Hi guys, I have to say I have always been a believer, but after reading Stan’s story my whole way of thinking changed, and suddenly a lot more now makes sense more than before. Some stuff is scary, but I think that it is scarier not to know….I am truly looking forward for more from Stan and I am eagerly awaiting the documentary release. Keep up the good work guys!

    Well I hope you guys get a theater release cause this case does seem like it would interest a mass of people even if they don’t have too much interest in this subject. Just advertising is going to be key.. I have seen many things on this case and it seems to me most of it looks authentic, maybe not so much the actual video and pic showing the actual aliens (not sure what to make of them), but the little device implant thing that no one knew what it was and some of that other stuff that even scientists couldn’t explain, like the equations and all, that makes this seem more real than other stories of aliens that I have heard.. good luck with the film and I am eagerly looking forward to seeing it..

      Thanks for reaching out, Gabriel. It is a compelling story because of the volume of incidents that have occurred over time. If more people took the time to look beyond the boo video they would see that the sheer number of incidents surrounding Stan and his family are mind-boggling. Lots to share for sure! Thanks for your support!

      Do you know release date? Will there be a way for everyone to see the film, outside of attending the conventions? It is important that it be made available to everyone asap to facilitate reducing fear, advancing humanities tolerance, and movement towards knowledge of Oneness w Source. Also that we manifest our experiences w our very own energies. With every thought- word-action, we send energy out into the universe. Consciously doing so will direct our abilities reducing the time to manifest. SO… Collective thought-word-action, will manifest desired experiences in significantly reduced timeframe. (Time as we know) The information from this work will bring about the the numbers of energjes needed to to effect this change. There will seem to be many who criticise the validity of the message, but the needed ones will arrive and together will render the antis insignificant to the goal. However, for this to be the outcome, the work must be made available to as many as possible, regardless of location, language, or financial barrier. All will benefit including the naysayers.

        As you know, trailers are often created well advance of a films release. We are still in post production and will be so for the next few months. Once the film is complete, we will be submitting to festivals for the sole purpose of gaining the widest possible audience. The purpose of attending a festival is to capture the interests of global distribution companies. Without a distributor, we reach a very small audience. If we were to release the film directly, those who would find it would be the ones who are already tuned in. We don’t want to reach just those who are interested in the subject, we want to reach way beyond them. Everything we’re doing is for the purpose of reaching as many eyeballs as possible. Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts. We’re on the same page! Keep checking back for updates on the latest and greatest.
