Thanks for that.

The truth is that no matter what media a film is made for or
distributed in, it's going to have to entertain as well as
inform. The same, however, is also true of books (with the
exception of academic studies intended for a very narrow
readership), which is why I always chuckle a bit at the holier-
than-thou attitude some UFO authors have towards the film and
television industry.

I agree, which is why I brought Brad Sparks on from the
beginning with Best Evidence, and why the list of the final ten
cases was basically composed from polling done of UFO
researchers, including guys like Nick Pope, Dick Hall, Brad and
Jan Aldrich. That kind of involvement helps make for a better
film, frankly, which will, at the end of the day help increase
sales... which is, no matter what anyone would have you believe,
what it's really all about.

Best regards,
