But Something Is There
Steve Neill is an artist, visual effects creator, and filmmaker with over 40 years of experience in film and television industry.
In 1971 he interned at the American Zoetrope in San Francisco with Francis Ford Coppola and received much of his film making education there.
He moved to Hollywood to pursue his career in 1974.
He has since worked on movies such as “Star Trek the Motion Picture”, “Ghost Busters”, “Fright Night” and more. He has appeared as a creature suit actor in many films, commercials and TV shows.
In addition he wrote and produced the feature film, “The Day Time Ended.”
Steve owns a film studio in Ventura California where he works with his partner Mary Cacciapagila producing visual effects, post production, model miniatures, creatures and prosthetic makeup.
Steve has had lifelong experiences with non-human intelligence starting when he was 6 years old. He first became aware that memories he thought were unique to him were shared by others when he first read “Communion” by Whitley Strieber.
He also during the 90s appeared on numerous talk shows, TV series and documentaries on the UFO subject. His work was seen worldwide and used on such shows as “Sightings”, “Paranormal Borderline”, the History Channels “UFO Files” and a multitude of documentaries.
Today Steve has created, written, and directed a new dramatic series about his experience. He tells his story without theories, conjecture and folklore. But rather an honest reporting of what he has experienced.
The series is entitled, “But Something is There” because he doesn’t know what this intelligence is, only that it is there.
Tonight Steve is going to discuss his life of contact, making sci-fi films and what it’s like to combine the two into a TV series based on his experiences with ET.

Aaron Moorhead And Justin Benson On Fade To Black

Portals Of The Endless
Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are the co-directing team behind the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival U.S. Narrative competitor THE ENDLESS, 2014 Toronto International Film Festival favorite SPRING, as well as the sleeper hit RESOLUTION that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and took the film festival circuit by storm in 2012.
Their films have been wildly acclaimed by critics and audiences for their naturalistic performances, dreamy cinematography, and avant-garde approach.
In addition to massive VOD numbers, THE ENDLESS and SPRING are Certified Fresh on Rottentomatoes.com, and RESOLUTION remains at 100% Fresh.
In the wake of being selected as one of VARIETY magazine’s “Ten Directors to
Watch in 2015”, both Guillermo Del Toro and Richard Linklater publicly praised their work.
While the approval of Linklater and Del Toro accurately suggests their unique grasp of both character and the fantastical, the duo’s films have been described as “quietly mythic”: unpredictable storytelling that won’t leave you after viewing, with an ardently character-first approach and a wry sense of humor. They’re also known for wearing as many hats as possible on their films, usually doing the writing, directing, cinematography, editing, even visual effects, and in the case of THE ENDLESS, they took on the lead roles.
Tonight we are going to talk about their new film, The Endless… the science, supernatural, ET, cult and time-travel elements that are the basis of a film that they wrote, directed, edited and shot as well as playing the two leads.
