World Contact (2004, 14 minutes, DV video, stereo)
A UFO enthusiast tries to convince his peers that they need to promote and stage a global-scale event whereby all participants around the world send the same telepathic message of peace at the same time and use this message to establish contact with alien visitors.
Based on the real events. The lyrics of the Klaatu song "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft" (covered by The Carpenters) were derived from the UFO enthusiasts' original telepathic message.
With John Kelly, Pat Palermo, Adam Reed, and Louis Colombo
