Skyman is a new film from one of the co-directors of The Blair Witch Project, Daniel Myrick. He is back with a tale about alien abduction that blurs the line between fact and fiction, while of course using a bit of found footage. It will get a drive-in release first on June 30th, followed by VOD streaming on July 7th. It stars Michael Selle, Nicollete Sweeney, and Faleolo Alailima and is produced by Joseph Restaino, Daniel Myrick, Anthony Pernicka, and William Surgeon. Comparisons between Skyman and the film Myrick is most famous for will be inevitable, however fair or unfair they may be. It has to be tough to get out of a movie like Blair Witch's shadow, even all of these years later. Can he pull it off?

Skyman Synopsis and Poster
"In 1987, just days after his 10th birthday, Carl Merryweather rocked the local news community when he claimed he was visited by an extraterrestrial life form. Despite other alleged sightings reported that same evening, skeptical authorities shrugged off the claims. Now, almost three obsessive decades later, Carl is set on a mission to reunite with the being he calls 'the Skyman' to not only prove the skeptics wrong but to ultimately find his own true sense of purpose. Through first-hand home videos interwoven with news footage and interviews, Skyman is a bold and compelling study of the fascinating and unquestioning world of UFO subculture."
