Director Keith Arem will share his process for making this indie budget film look like an epic action movie by applying techniques and practices from his extensive gaming experience.

Set for release in early 2016, The Phoenix Incident chronicles the 1997 government conspiracy surrounding the largest UFO sighting in US history, “The Phoenix Lights.” The film explores the multi-agency cover-up of the incident, exposing classified evidence of civilian casualties.
