| Paul Davids, a noted Hollywood producer / writer and director, is a Princeton graduate in psychology , who has attended most of the International UFO Congresses , and he also won one of the UFO Congress' coveted EBE Awards in 1996 for a documentary entitled GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY UFO BRIEFING FOR THE WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE PIONEERS. He is noted as a co-author of six STAR WARS books and as production coordinator of over 80 half hours of a national "sensation" of the late 1980's, THE TRANSFORMERS animated TV series (some of which he also wrote), all episodes now available on DVD from Rhino Entertainment. His latest feature documentary, called THE SCI-FI BOYS, will be released on DVD by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment in mid-April 2006, in which Peter Jackson, Leonard Maltin and a large group of film notables chart the development of special effects in films and Hollywood's affection for fictional cinematic aliens, be they realistic or hokey, evil or enlightened.
"WHAT WE LEARNED FROM ROSWELL"
Paul Davids, who was Executive Producer and co-writer of the film, ROSWELL, offers a highly visual presentation to help us reflect on what the decade following the release of his film has taught us about the famous 1947 New Mexico Incident, UFO's, national security, disinformation, "weather balloons" and the possibilities of future "Official Disclosure." About a decade ago, the dramatic Showtime TV film called ROSWELL (starring Kyle MacLachlan, Martin Sheen and Dwight Yoakam) was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture for Television. Davids' much-publicized film, which has now been televised about 100 times and is a popular DVD, helped awaken millions of people to the possibility that alien visitation and extraterrestrial technology are realities. However, before there could be such a film, Davids says he himself had to undergo an "awakening" on this subject, leaving his lifetime of extreme skepticism "in the dust." A closeup daylight sighting helped pave the way for his personal "transformation."
