Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Back with Jeremy Corbelli. Jeremy we heard a clip from Mickey Rourke narrating your film. You know? That's that seems like that's quite a coup to get that guy is he a UFO guy. How did you get it? Yeah. Not not really a UFO guy. Look, you know, he's a heavy hitter. Nobody thought I could do it. Nobody thought I could do any of this. I just wanna say, I don't just produce the movies, man. You know, this is like in the Arturas style. Meaning I am fanatical controlling every frame. You know, this I film. I edit I do audio getting Mickey was because of a personal friendship. We we go to the same. I call it church the same tattoo shop, Mark Mahoney's shamrock social club on Sunset Boulevard. That's where we met I filmed with him before kind of tried to stab me in the ribs with the Stellato knife that time, but whatever I met him before. And we have not kidding. And we did talk a little bit about UFO's because you know, Mark Mahoney is really in Heidel, you know, he brings people together in this cosmic space, and and there was Mickey. So I heard him talk. And when I realized I was going to be able to make this movie. Oh my gosh. Everybody's telling me how I can fail. That's why I never told myself I was gonna fail because everybody out from me I'm gonna fail. I heard this voice. And it's the voice of a rabble, man. It's a voice is somebody who doesn't care, and it's a it's a guy willing to take risks. And this was Mickey Rourke. I mean, he was he was literally the first voice that I heard him. I had I wrote the script for him and on faith. And then the funniest thing is that he never received it. You know, you go through these managers in ages never received it, and I bumped into him I called Mickley bumped into him in the shop. And you know, I said, hey, man, Vicky did did you ever get the script, and he was pissed that he never got it. I think that's what made him do it. And yeah, he did it as a favor him. You know, he's going to do that. I was going to say I mean, his he's in a unique strata that would be a pretty pricey proposition. It would seem like beyond what the budget of a regular UFO related documentary could handle it elevates it on so many levels. I mean, don't get me wrong. People don't understand this. I'm an independent filmmaker. You know, my credit cards are maxed out I put everything on the line. I mean, this is real when I tell you I do that, you know, and he didn't do it for free. But what my goal would still has been in this genre from day. One was first to learn the truth about UFO's second was to uplift of visual medium of documentary filmmaking in this complex subject and to elevate it on all levels. And I gotta tell ya. I've achieved both my dreams so far. This is elevated got Mickey Rourke amazing soundtrack or at work. I am proud of this film. Let's talk about how you. You gained access to Lazar. So you've you know after meeting Lear spending time with Lear hearing the Lazar stories from John Lear, you must have been salivating. No that that was one of the first subjects when you came to to meet me. This is what we talked about. And I told you well, good luck. Because whether Bob would talk to or not it's really depends on what else is going on in his life at that time. But in general, he doesn't do interviews anymore. Every few years. I would twist his army at him to do it. But in general, he doesn't do it. You did it you got it. I did. And I'd like to say, it's my charming personality, and my good looks..
