SYNOPSIS OF JAMES' LECTURE
Documentarian James Fox provides a rare look into the making of UFO films, including the 2007 National Press Club event with Leslie Kean, what happens when you're in the backseat of a TV production on a National TV show called National Geographic's "Chasing UFOs", as well as his latest UFO movie now in production called "701 The Movie". Come find out what he has to say about portraying UFOs without the silly factor in major Film and TV media. You don't want to miss this!
"People have always asked me why it is I do what I do and I respond with a question: if earth was being visited by extra-terrestrials and tangible evidence was being withheld from the general public, how significant would you consider that? Inevitably the answer from the majority, whether they believe it to be true or not, is that it would be the most significant discovery of our time. Well, after four films, a 2006 National Press Club event I organized with the help of Leslie Kean countless meetings with high-ranking military and government officials from around the globe, I'm now convinced it is. But I, as many others in the field, didn't start out believing. "
