Director Statement

Remote Viewing is based on the beliefs and practices of a US based international organization called CSETI (Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence). My brother, who has been an active member for years, provided me with insider information on CSETI which I used to write the film. Much to the dismay of my brother, however, the film is a comedic and not entirely flattering reflection of his organization. I wanted the audience to witness the absurdity of CSETI's practices, but not necessarily to dismiss the presence of UFOs in our skies.

This film was set in the picturesque Horseshoe Canyon, part of the Alberta badlands located near Drumheller. Many tourists frequent the canyon to look out over the canyon from the parking lot, or climb into the canyon on hikes. There are also helicopter tours. We chose a film site on the far side of the canyon, just out of reach of the hikers, but he helicopter seemed to take special interest in us during filming. This made filming particularly challenging. We also chose the hottest (32 degrees Celsius) day of the year to climb down into a canyon with our gear and only a small tent for sun cover. But our small group of dedicated indie filmmakers and actors were up for the challenge.
