Alien Contact and the Government Cover-Up


The Hid­den Hand; Alien Con­tact and the Gov­ern­ment Cover-Up 


The Hid­den Hand is a con­tro­ver­sial  Award–win­ning doc­u­men­tary that explores the pos­si­bil­ity of an extrater­res­trial pres­ence here on Earth. The film takes a keen look at a spec­trum of top­ics like alien abduc­tion, human/alien hybridiza­tion, the military’s reverse-engineering of alien tech­nol­ogy and the gov­ern­ment cover-up of any­thing related to extrater­res­tri­als. Is pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with E.T.’s a form of cul­tural mad­ness, or is some­thing really going on? How would E.T. con­tact change the reli­gious and polit­i­cal insti­tu­tions of our soci­ety? The Hid­den Hand is full of riv­et­ing inter­views with experts Con­tinue read­ing

Craig Campobasso


Craig has com­pleted the feature-length screen­play “Stranger at the Pen­ta­gon” from the book by Dr. Frank E. Stranges that was first released in 1967. It remains a UFO clas­sic to date. He is set to direct the fea­ture film with a 1950s Tech­ni­color look on Earth and a far-futuristic look on board the Vic­tor Class Saucers, Star­ship and on other plan­ets where the peo­ple live on the inte­rior of their worlds. He has just fin­ished direct­ing the short film ver­sion in Jan­u­ary 2013 based on his feature-length screenplay.


The land­ing of Valiant Thor was per­haps the first doc­u­mented land­ing of a human-type alien by mil­i­tary offi­cials. He met with Pres­i­dent Eisen­hower and Vice Pres­i­dent Richard Nixon for an hour, then the alien was put on VIP sta­tus and shut­tled back to the Pen­ta­gon.”  –Harley Byrd, Project Blue Book, United States Air Force

Stranger at the Pen­ta­gon” is inspired by True Events from the book of the same name. It was first pub­lished in 1967. It remains a UFO clas­sic to date.
