To be fair, there are a lot of shoddy documentaries out there,
and not just about the UFO phenomenon, so critiquing them is no
great wrong in my book... even if one of those films, in
someone's opinion, happens to be mine. But I agree with you
about the "stab in the back" stuff, and said so on SDI last week
- I've never met a documentary maker who purposefully went out
and said, "hey, let's screw this guy over, or treat him
unfairly." Usually, it comes down to the fact that the
documentary maker(s) have different opinions than you do, or
have reached different conclusions. There are, I suppose, the
exceptions that prove this rule, but I haven't met them, nor has
anyone I know who works in the industry.

It's at this point that I must object to your subject title.
It's not really "Paul Kimball's Best Evidence" - it's Brad
Sparks', Dick Hall's, and Stan Friedman's, and Kevin Randle's,
and Bruce Maccabee's, and Nick Redfern's, and Nick Pope's, and
Mac Tonnies', and Don Ledger's, and... well, you get the
picture. They're the ones who, with one exception (#10, the 1561
Nuremberg case) picked the cases. I was just one voice among
many in that regard.

Further, when it came to the actual making of the film, again,
I'm just the quarterback. Kudos to the rest of the team - folks
like John Rosborough (post audio and music), Zan Rosborough
(post audio), Findlay Muir (DOP), Jim Kimball (co-producer),
Christine Boss (production coordinator), Brian Howald and
Breandan McGrath (head animators), Thor Henrickson (on-line
editor), and of course the good folks at Space who commissioned
the film (especially Charlotte Engel), the NSFDC who provided
much of the financing (especially Ann MacKenzie and Linda Wood),
and B7 Media in the UK who are distributing the film (especially
Andrew Mark Sewell). Finally, super kudos to actress Kris Lee
McBride, who narrated the film and gave it a unique "voice" -
i.e. young and female. You don't hear that in many docs, alas -
especially UFO-related docs. My mom loved it!

In the end, of course, there are the people to whom the film
truly belongs - the witnesses, including the three who appear in
the film, Lieutenant Colonel Bruce Bailey (RB47), Colonel
Charles Halt (Rendlesham), and Captain Robert Salas (Malmstrom).

On behalf of all of the above, my friend - thank you (especially
for letting Findlay and I crash at your house a year ago)!

Best regards,

Paul Kimball
