Caroline Cory’s interest in parapsychology has always been constant while growing up, and to see her enthusiasm is key to why her documentaries must be watched. We see her wanting to learn more about what it all means. Whether that’s with testing people for their PSI ability in Superhuman or simply examining this mysterious world in works from her own production company, Omnium Media. there’s something to think about. Her latest, Tear in the Sky, concerns the strange aircraft known as Tic Tac UFOS often seen around Catalina Island.
She got to talk to the various members of the crew from the USS Nimitz since they were near, and to focus on this particular incident may well get the federal government to open up.
“They were on those ships in 2004,” said Cory, “And we had a huge amount of equipment, some even military-grade, to observe in real time. We got crazy stuff–amazing anomalies. My film takes a totally different approach to ufology.”
The federal reports have not made a full disclosure. There’s people from Avalon, a township on that island, and It’s not just them wanting answers about the fairy lights. Others who live or are stationed nearby are curious.
It’s a phenomenon everyone wants further understanding on. Everyone is asking how do they fly? The way they skirt the sky can’t be done based on humanity’s current understanding of physics. A less asked question is why is this area so special? Cory believes the aliens have their agenda and are doing their thing without too much concern about a “Prime Directive,” a concept well known amongst Star Trek fans. It’s not necessary about space tourism either, but rather in what they find fascinating. Parts of Catalina Island have a military history and it may well play a role to why alien ships are often spotted here.
The difference between pointing a video camera at those crafts to using precision equipment to gather data means taking information down, measuring velocities, finding out if they left a chemical trail, and pinpointing where in the sky they were so helicopters can visit to see if there’s residue left behind. Cory noted how no one is doing that in the civilian front.
“So I thought we need to really do it ourselves and I believe we succeeded,” said this filmmaker.
Although the government released a fifteen hundred page document report on the effects of coming in contact with UFOs such as radiation, nightmares, and abduction, what they offer only paints part of the picture. Corey believes that to continue documenting her investigations gives viewers more material to digest.
“We collected hundreds of hours of data. Of course, it’s an hour and a half movie–it’s supposed to be entertaining. So, we picked the most visually and compelling correlations we found and presented that,” said Cory.
The team is focused on continuing to promote Tear in the Sky. They believe what they’ve produced is a pilot for something even bigger. They’re not sure if it’ll become a series yet. The team hasn’t gone through everything they recorded too. Ultimately, this documentary is about chronicling the five nights they spent in the field, which is rarely done for any documentary about the occult.
Caroline Cory is a filmmaker first and foremost. To put together a narrative is tough. There wasn’t a script when they were out investigating and what she’s assembled shows the adventure. That key word describes it all.
“We have not touched the Integrity of the footage. We have not manipulated anything. In fact, we had so many Zoom calls and email exchanges to make sure I was using terminology that (other ufologists) wanted me to use. Like I, you know, but what producer does that?” noted Cory.
To help with attracting viewership, this producer called upon her friends to offer their five cents. Some names were easy to get, like Travis S. Taylor and Michio Kaku. She said this documentary was in the can, before deciding to add William Shatner last minute. They’ve worked together in the past, so he was easy to contact.
“We really needed to make Tear in the Sky mainstream, and BIll’s perfect because he’s a legend. He brings that element of what we make sci-fi science–if that makes sense,” said Cory, “Nick Pope wasn’t available and by then I had enough material. I think it’s okay. He’d bring a government perspective, which wasn’t the focus of the film.”
What’s presented is about the observations and reactions from scientists rather than randoms. Caroline surmises there’s probably black projects that nobody wants to talk about, which is the reason behind these sightings. She said, “I think it’s hard when we try to summarise what this entire phenomenon is about; there are different things and different agendas and different stories, all under one umbrella–another reason I wanted to make the film.”
Some hurdles faced as a civilian is that individuals can’t afford all the fancy gadgetry operations like NASA and private enterprise can build. What they got to use include cosmic ray detectors, spectrum analyzers and a few military grade toys to use. The footage viewers often see in these documentaries are from what the plane’s cameras recorded when near. This filmmaker wonders what the satellites in space have seen.
Caroline Cory sees what she’s providing to viewers exciting because it’s one way to introduce them to UFOlogy. The topic has gone beyond simply looking up in the sky and trying to spot one yourself. After that, what else is there to do? Most folks will want to talk about it, share their experiences and find like-minded people to discuss the finer points.
Caroline joked it’s not just folks with a tinfoil hat posting on YouTube. There are people from the academic world who are serious, and that’s why she recruited a reputable team to be her voice. This documentarian also said, “What else more can we do? We are being visited by our space brothers? So I’m really hoping that people will watch Tear in the Sky and ask their local governments to validate what’s out there.”
