In addition to revealing their acquisition of the latest effort from The Blair Witch Project co-director, Gravitas Ventures has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi/mystery mockumentary Skyman seeing Daniel Myrick returning behind the camera for the first time in over a decade. The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
The plot synopsis for the film, written and directed by Myrick, reads as follows:
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.
The cast for the film features Michael Selle, Nicolette Sweeney, Faleolo Alailim, with Joseph Restaino, Myrick, Anthony Pernicka and William Surgeon all attached as producers on the project. The score for the film is composed by pop/rock artist Don Miggs and The Smashing Pumpkins’ founder and frontman Billy Corgan.
Skyman is set to hit select drive-in theaters on June 30, followed by a VOD release on July 7.
