Some of you know this, but many may not. I am a huge believer that there is life beyond our atmospheric walls. That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to interview Keith Arem, director of The Phoenix Incident. Now depending on how old you are, you may have quickly come to the realization that this film is based on the facts from the most witnessed UFO event in U.S. history; Phoenix Lights. If you have never heard of this, don’t worry, the movie will give you detailed explanations of what happened. Well, and there is always Google.
The Phoenix Incident is Keith Arem’s debut film, but don’t let that fool you. The man knows what he is doing. He is a veteran talent director for some of mine, and I am sure your favorite games like Bioshock, Titanfall, Call of Duty, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES… The list goes on and on. Keith has used mo-cap (motion capture) extensively, which means that he pay very close attention to detail.
The cast of The Phoenix Incident includes some amazing talent like Troy Baker (who I have interviewed and said he was too pretty to only do mo-cap- I am paraphrasing, but yes, I said it…), Holgie Forrester, James L. Brewster, Yuri Lowenthal (RWBY), Travis Willingham (Fullmetal Alchemist- Roy Mustang!!!), and so many more!
I haven’t mentioned much of what this movie is about and for good reason. I want you to hear what The Phoenix Incident is about from Keith’s mouth. He is so excited and passionate about this film and that can be heard in the interview below. Listen and enjoy just as much (I doubt more) as I did. Then, make sure to watch the trailer. You won’t be able to wait to see it in theaters on April 8th! And if you are unable to see it in the theater, don’t worry, the DVD/VOD release is that same date!
The truth is coming.
