Look at Night Skies

Producer Mike Greene, director Roy Knyrim and the SOTA FX/Toys team brought the recently wrapped alien abduction thriller Night Skies to San Diego Comic-Con this week. The movie is a based on a true story of one man's account of the March 13, 1997 Phoenix Lights encounter - a well-documented and widespread UFO sighting. The group showed attendees a behind-the-scenes trailer filmed during shooting of the movie. The trailer centered largely on location shooting dealing with a large recreational vehicle (RV). The team also showed the official theatrical trailer, which included real footage of Senator John McCain acknowledging the Phoenix sighting.

Actors George Stults (7th Heaven), A.J. Cook (Tru Calling) and Jason Connery (Wishmaster 3) were on hand to share the experience of making the film. Stults plays Matt - the abrasive boyfriend to Cook's character Lily, who is fighting a strained relationship and has a secret she will not reveal. Connery plays Richard - a bystander who is drawn into the couple's world after a car accident.

All three were drawn to the project due to a fascination with UFOs, the element of it being a true story and the unsolved mystery aspect of the material.

The team used puppets and costumes for the aliens in the film and not CGI.

Knyrim told the crowd he was going for a The Hills Have Eyes with aliens, 1960s throwback look to the film, which is still looking for a distributor. S.B. Harris, publisher of Electronic Gaming Monthly and Jerry Macaluso, president of SOTA Toys, funded the film. The pair had been long-time friends and always wanted to work together.

'We wanted to revisit the whole 'gray alien' thing,' said Macaluso. 'No one had done it the way we thought it should be done.'

Screenwriter Eric Miller (Dog Soldiers 2) wrote the script. Greene said they would run the film in the festival circuit and try to get the film into the Sundance Film Festival. Macaluso said he thought Night Skies could hit theaters around Halloween 2006.

The set was a reunion of sorts for three of the team - Knyrim, Cook and Connery worked together on Wishmaster 3.
