I received a request from Nick Ronan, film producer with Chance of Fate Productions, asking if I would help promote his movie project.
I don't intend to make it a habit promoting movies but this one looks promising, so I decided to let Nick tell it in his own words. -SW
|Official Apollo Insignia|
For years rumors have circulated throughout NASA about Apollo 11’s controversial “findings” in 1969. For over forty years, the government has kept these files “classified.” Now, for the first time ever, Apollo Minus Project is a bold new independent film that investigates these “findings.”
Based on actual events, the film follows the story of DANIEL CONROY, a young documentary filmmaker who sets out to uncover the truth about his grandfather, James L. Conroy, an Air Force pilot and U.S. Astronaut. Colonel Conroy vanished mysteriously in the deserts of Nevada in 1970, six months after returning from a top-secret mission to investigate evidence of extraterrestrial life.
Here’s what we know: Daniel Conroy (25) disappeared while finishing this documentary. Most of the footage that will be used to assemble this film was taken from his home camera. The mystery of the Conroy family remains untold.
This is not another alien monster flick. Nor is it another ET family feel-good movie.
As the film’s producer, I would like to suggest that Daniel uncovered something that has remained hidden for many years. Something that his grandfather knew. Something that potentially cost them both their lives.
The film is an intimate blend between The Blair Witch Project and District 9. It is the story of a boy’s struggle to hold his broken family together after the effects of his grandfather’s contact with alien life. It is an odyssey. A conspiracy story. A hunt for clues in dark places where there is no safe return, where the witnesses hide in dark corners and whisper, “We are not alone.”
Please check out the film’s official teaser (video).
