The Alien Report


A troubled teen uses tiny, hidden micro-cameras sharing 'in-your-face' encounter video of telepathic beings, human hybrids and the unusual MIB (Men In Black). Based on the real UFO phenomena, The Alien Report is part one of a trilogy

The Alien Report was filmed on micro cameras and Iphones using creative ingenuity. Additionally, the film contains a massive array of sound effects, contributions from artists all over the world, which meld the auditory and visual experience into a kaleidoscopic trip. This micro-budget endeavor is unlike any other sci-fi movie.

Director Biography - PL Donnelly

I've worked on film sets since college working beside a variety of Directors who taught me their trade techniques. I took that knowledge and combined it with my love of 'hand-held' shooting and POV style filming to create a more modern, YOUTUBEY style of capturing the action. Alien Report is my first, low-budget, feature. More cool stuff in the works, can't wait to share it.

Director Statement

The Alien Report was filmed on an Iphone and a GoPro with an impossibly tiny budget, paycheck to paycheck. Having developed a non-traditional style of visual effects and use of background plates, THE ALIEN REPORT looks and feels hyper-realistic and does not rely on the traditional CGI 3-D facial mapping process used by Hollywood, which sometimes makes the primary VFX characters look computer generated.

If you are into the UFO phenomena, The Alien Report is for you.
