Witness of Another World. Interview with the Filmmaker. Richard Dolan Show

By | October 14, 2019

Turns out I had one heck of a time trying to get this interview’s audio to work. I was just barely able to get it uploaded before we left for our UFO cruise. However, because we were essentially out of signal for nearly a week, I didn’t know until this morning that the last half of the interview’s audio was gone. I just spent the last few hours trying to fix the problem and finally succeeded. 

The interview itself is excellent. In 1978, a young Argentinian gaucho, Juan Perez, had an extraordinary encounter with what seemed to be an otherworldly intelligence. It affected him deeply and changed the course of his life. Filmmaker Alan Stivelman created a unique documentary about the experience and found Juan living a solitary life and still troubled by his encounter. The film explores what happened to Juan and his remarkable journey of rediscovering this experience and reconnecting with a deeper part of himself to begin a healing process. Legendary researcher Jacques Vallee studied Juan’s case back then and reappears in the documentary to meet with Juan and re-explore the case. In this program, Alan and I talk about Juan, Jacques Vallee, and the process of investigating this fascinating contact case. The film opens on October 22.

By the way, this audio dropout problem has happened to me before, and turns out it is a common iMovie glitch. Makes me wonder if I am going to even continue doing these types of interviews. Seriously will need a full-time producer if I am going to continue this. Otherwise I can see that I will get no genuine work done anymore, and instead will spend all my time doing this type of stuff. Sorry — just venting here. But I do need a genuine solution.

    Just love that you are so sincere and tell it like it is at all times.
    I am laughing and I am not laughing at you, but, I’m all smiles as I read your frustration at how you are always trying to keep us informed. I know nothing about audio problems. Sometimes I still use an old tape recorder which can run for hours with no problems…Maybe you could do the same and then just play the audio from the tape recorder to your computer and then you can forward it into the digital world. Especially if its over the phone. I have an extra one if you want me to send it. \
    Take care,

      Hi Debrita…. thanks. the tech issues really get to me sometimes. I am not a whiz with these things. I have basic skills with video and audio editing. I know how to do them. Basic graphic design, too. But these things often throw in all kinds of unexpected bugs, and they are always time-consuming. It gets frustrating when I feel that I am spending my time in unproductive ways. But until a new system is in place, this is the best I can do!

    Yes, Richard, a producer for you is a grand idea. Your time as a researcher and interviewer is way too valuable to waste on software slogging. . I’m here to support you with my membership and positive thoughts that the right person at the right time comes along. Check out university grads…you are in Rochester, right.? Plenty of talent. Luck. Hi to cool wife Tracy.

    I watched this movie last night – long after this original posting of this content. It was genuinely beautiful and it resonated deeply with me. Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention. I think there’s stuff we can all learn from buried somewhere in here.
