I have been recreating items from my favorite movie of all time "2001: a space odyssey." There is not a film or book that has had more influence on my life than 2001. It mystified me and set me on a course that lead to my film career but at the same time the film is so deeply connected to the Visitor experience. 
As I sculpt the Star Child from the end of the movie I'm feeling a deep connection with the meaning of this experience. As with the film there will be a next step in human evolution. From the early man apes in the pit that touched the monolith 4 million years ago to Hayward Floyd in the Tyco cater touching the Monolith we move towards higher consciousness and the stars. 
As I sculpt this recreation of the Star Child it's no wonder to me my connection with the film and now it has gone full circle for me.
Here is the rough sculpture so far. Also Moonwatcher I recently created from the film.

Book news
The Book is published!


  
Many of you know about our TV series, “But Something is There.” We at SNG Studios produced an hour long pilot for the series. It is based on my real life encounters with the unknown. Whitley Strieber coined the term “the Visitors” for lack of a better description of a non-human intelligence that millions of people are interacting with and have been for a very long time.

I have never liked the term aliens because we don’t know that they are aliens or from where they come. Their point of origin is unknown. At this point in my life it doesn’t matter anymore, as all intelligences and life forms are connected. We tend to want to explain things and give a sense of order and location to everything we experience. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that we find ourselves. That we know ourselves.

We are amazing beings and when we perceive this vast universe we sometimes feel fear. We may feel small and insignificant; but nothing could be further from the truth. We are this universe, we are born from it and there are no limits to the size of consciousness we possess.

My experiences with the visitors has forever changed me, connected me and separated me from the self-imposed reality of our culture.  This culture separates us from the very stars from which we are born. A reality that asks you not to ask questions, to look down and not up.

In this book I tell my story from my first memories to the present, where the journey still continues. It is honest and told as it happened. At age 65 I still don’t know why this has been happening or who the visitors are. However, I do have an idea as I express in conclusion in the book.

I want to thank everyone who has helped with this book. Thank you to the love of my life, Mary Cacciapaglia, who has painstakingly edited my writing. A big thank you to Whitley Strieber, for being my friend and always being there to help and support me; thank you Paul Butcher for the lovely cover. Thank you Yvonne Smith for your friendship, support and Forward to my book.

The book is available from Amazon.  Click on the book cover image to order yours today.

Yvonne Smith has a new book out just today.
Yvonne and I have been friends for a long time. We have worked together exploring this experience over the years. In addition she was my C.H.T. during the 90s and she has contributed to our production by playing herself in BSIT.
The last book I read by Yvonne was “Coronado”  which was a mass abduction I was involved in. I found it was an excellent read. It also allowed me to fact check and my memory of the events that occurred over 20 years ago. This contributed greatly to my writing of my book about my life long experience, “But Something is There.”

It is based on one man's experience with unknown intelligence's.

But Somethings is There is hosted by Whitely Strieber and produced by SNG Studio.

We have been in production since April or last year and we are currently in post production and visual effects.​​

This is not a crowd funded project and we are self financed. Most of our crew are seasoned veterans of the motion picture industry and have given their time on weekends as we slowly shot this one hour pilot.

The story covers Steve Neill's life long experiences from a child until present day with an unknown intelligent presents.. This is about how this experience can shape a person's life and send them on a journey of self discovery and deep connection with the cosmos.

In this series it is never claimed that these are beings from another world or planet but rather an honest accounting of the experience itself.

Never before has a series or film approached this subject matter in this way. All the encounters are presented as they actually occurred and not flavored by Hollywood conjecture or fantasy. This is how it really happens. This is not your father's close encounters.

Whitley Strieber

Whitley on set

This is a frame grab from the edit. This was part of Whitley's intro at the beginning of the pilot. Here he's on the set we built for the 7 year old boy that night of is first experience. The set is made to resemble my bedroom in my home where I grew up in San Francisco in the 50's.

How we arrived at our title for the show

I can’t thank Whitley enough for his involvement and support of our production. Whitley and I have been friends for years and we both share this experience along with countless others.

His knowledge, passion and love for this subject matter contributes enormously to the credibility of our production.

One thing you may not know about is the struggle Mary and I had to come up with a good title for the show. Everything we came up with had been used before or just taken.

Whitley invited us both to speaking event he attended at in Malibu at Leigh McCloskey’s home. He spoke about the Visitor experience and at one point he brought up the fact that we do not know who the visitors are and that we never conclude that they are aliens in space ships from another world.

He paused and then said,”But Something is there”. Mary and I both looked at each other in amazement because we just got our title for the show.

It’s fitting that Whitley unknowingly named the production and we could never have a more appropriate  title.
Thank you Whitley!

"But Something is There"
Book of art

Y
How I met Whitley Strieber was through a comic book project that started back in 1994. A friend of mine and a great writer himself, Martin Powell started the project. One night I got a call from Whitley and we have been friends ever since.

Martin and I did a couple of prototypes for the comic to show to Caliber Comics. I’m just now finding them in storage. I found the first one which was based on another person’s experience, not Whitley’s. The second was one of Whitley’s stories that took place at the cabin.
For both versions I made the cover work and the inside art. I will over time show you more from these prototypes.

The Comic that was released unfortunately took that same direction that Hollywood takes when it comes to this subject. That is to sensationalize it. Although the comic wasn’t as harsh as the films can be. It still had on the cover, “True Stories of Alien Abduction” a term that makes my blood run cold. It is inaccurate and creates fear.

One of the very worse movies on this experience was “Fire in the Sky”. The sequence where Travis was taken on board was a Hollywood nightmare fantasy that never occurred. They just made it up. Every reason “But Something is There” was self funded. So I could tell the truth.
This page of the prototype comic was written by Whitley from his experience just the way he wrote it.

Now that my book version of “But Something is There” is finished, we are starting on another book project. This book will document all the art and sculpture I have done on this subject starting in 1970. It will be a book of art and commentary.

Here are a few frame grabs from the sequence where Whitley Strieber introduces us to the show. He begins with reminding us all about the strange and fantastic existence we all are part of. Life on Earth, in the solar system, in the galaxy, in the billions of galaxies that make up our universe and it doesn't stop there. We now know there are uncountable numbers of Universes too. There is no end to it.
This is done so that anyone viewing "But Something is There" may considered it not so unbelievable or far fetched when one considers that their reality is much larger and more mysterious then they reflect on daily. I do reflect on it daily and it is part of my reality. A reality that our culture does not want you to consider.
Work continues daily and I'm now on to building a star ship model to animate in the part of the sequence that shows us in the near by future leaving the solar system and discovering a new world.
The image of the multi universes is one that I first saw years ago in an experience with the visitors. In fact I have a drawing I'll look for today that I did back in 94 long before science announced it's possibility.
The other is a 3D galaxy I built in Lightwave that is our Milky Way  galaxy as we leave it and go to the edge of our universe and beyond into the multi universe.
