“A New World” film production

“A New World” is a very different documentary on many levels. First of all, most films on this subject are all very similar. They often are over-dramatized, sensational “talking heads” documentaries that rehash the same cases over and over again. They have cheap special effects and re-enactments with actors.

Most importantly they are almost never honest, in-depth or soul searching. They don’t try to answer the greatest mystery of them all: Why? Why has a high intelligence taken such a deep interest in us? Where is this all leading? And who are we?

Think about it for a moment. None of us really know. You are alive in this immense Universe. There is so much more then the existence we have here on Earth. Our perspective is a small piece of a huge picture you rarely consider in your day to day life.

We are not small insignificant creatures as many people pontificate on social media. They say we aren’t worth it. They go on to state we are tiny and insignificant.

We are beings that can hold the vision of this immense universe within our minds. Even as I write this, I can see from Earth to the edge of our known universe and beyond to the multi-universe that exists beyond, and, at the same time, down to the atom and beyond.

Can other species of life on this planet do this? Do they understand the nature of mortality? We can and this makes us huge. This is a universe that wouldn’t exist without us here to perceive it. We are not alone this is an old cliché but true nonetheless.

This documentary will be an experience that will answer many questions never asked in the past. It will be a film experience that will take you on an incredible journey leaving you with a perspective of your reality that will change your consciousness. It will leave you with a perspective that I feel this experience with the Visitors is all about.

Be a part of this film. Your help is very important. Be part of history and a movement towards understanding our lives and relationship to the universe.

Other filmmakers have had their say and now it is time for truth. It’s time for the years of Whitley’s experience, study, and perspective to be heard in this definitive film, “A New World”. to donate

50th year Anniversary of 2001: a space odyssey

This is the 50 year anniversary of the release of 2001: a space odyssey.

This movie change my life. It changed the world. And without question continues to amaze me to this day.

The exact release date was April 3rd 1968.

In celebration of one of the most amazing films ever made SNG Studio will be doing many 2001 related projects. We have already made “Moonwatcher”, “the Starchild” and we are planning the Hilton space station and a miniature diorama of the TMA-! site.

We will also be creating a Virtual Reality experience.

This is the film that opened my mind to the power of the cinema and its ability to set free minds to imagine great things that will lead us to the stars!


Starchild progress

Got mine nearly done however the eyes have yet to be made. These are just temps until I make accurate eyes. Adam Savage is also getting one of these next week and plans a show about it.


Virtual Reality

VR experiences are in the works. I have crashed coursed Unity for about 3 weeks now and have got to a point where I can recreate and bring to life a lot. Soon I’ll have the 2001 experience and more on the hub. 2001 will be free.

These pictures don’t do any of it justice you really have to try Vive to know what I’m talking about.

I recreated my bedroom from the 50s and it was chilling the first time I crawled on the floor and looked out those windows.

Those that read my book will know what I’m talking about. The set has a great deal more work to go but it’s getting photo real.

Also I finished up a 1/350 K’Tinga! To learn more about it visit here:

The original screen used model. And I have a bunch of them.
