Lecture: Behind the Scenes of My New UFO Documentary: The Phenomenon
I’ll be presenting clips from my latest film, The Phenomenon as well as behind the scenes stories of production which took place around the globe from China, Africa, Australia and across the USA.
Bio: James Fox is the Executive Producer and Director of three critically acclaimed UFO documentaries, 50 years of Denial, Out of the Blue and I Know What I Saw. Out of the Blue aired on the Sci-Fi channel and I Know What I Saw aired on the History channel. He is now working on an eagerly awaited new doumentary that he says will blow the socks off audiences. All of these documentaries are geared towards sharing eye-witness accounts from individuals with impeccable credentials, breaking the stereotype of the typical UFO witness.
Fox assembled the most credible UFO witnesses from around the world to testify at The National Press Club in Washington D.C.: Air Force Generals, astronauts, military and commercial pilots, government and FAA officials from seven countries tell stories that, as Governor Fife Symington from Arizona stated, ”will challenge your reality”. Fox has won the support of several key media, government and military personnel, and has made numerous television and radio appearances including: Larry King Live (CNN) appearances, Anderson Cooper 360° (CNN) appearance, ABC Nightline appearance, Dateline NBC appearance, George Noory’s Coast to Coast Radio.
In 1998, he completed and sold his first major documentary ‘UFOs: 50 Years of Denial’ to the Discovery Channel. It included such notables as Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell and Col. Philip J. Corso, who was in charge of the foreign technology desk at the Pentagon during the Eisenhower administration. For his film, Out of the Blue, James interviewed witnesses including President Gerald Ford, Mercury Astronaut Gordon Cooper, Cosmonaut Pavel Papovich in Star City, Russia, and five-star Admiral Lord Hill Norton in England.
