The first trailer for the locally-produced short film “The Maury Island Incident ” has been released:
The film is based on the true story – taken directly from declassified FBI documents – of Harold Dahl’s June 21, 1947 UFO sighting near Maury Island and the first reported ‘Man In Black’ encounter that happened the next day. An investigation followed that resulted in a mysterious crash of a B-25 carrying “slag” evidence from the encounter, which killed Capt. William Davidson and Lt. Frank Brown (this film is dedicated to them). This case went all the way up to FBI Executive Director J. Edgar Hoover, who expressed personal interest in it.
Directed by WLB Publisher Scott Schaefer, Written by Steve Edmiston, Produced by Scott & Laura Beth Peterson and Danny House and Executive Produced by John White, the film was shot over four days this last summer in Des Moines, Burien Tukwila and off the waters of Maury Island.
With music composed and performed by Seahurst resident David Templeton, and a local crew recruited and assembled by Line Producer Elizabeth Heile – along with an excellent, all-local group of actors put together by Casting Director Stephen Salamunovich – “The Maury Island Incident” will be released very soon (watch for a test screening announcement very shortly!).
The film – which won an “Innovation Lab ” award from Washington Filmworks in June – will then be submitted to various festivals, turned into online webisodes, and if all goes well, perhaps made into a feature-length film or TV series.
Speaking of which – if YOU would like to help us fund the marketing and film festival portion of this project, we’re still selling collectible wristbands for $25 each – just email email@example.com  to learn on how you can buy one!
The movie includes a great, all-local cast:
