The debut film from writer/director Keith Arem – who makes a short appearance in this video –  retells the story of the famous Phoenix Lights, one of the longest and most widespread UFO sightings ever recorded, which occurred in 1997 in the southwestern USA and Northwestern Mexico. The new feature mixes conventional science fiction techniques with a documentary style akin to something like the original “Cloverfield.” Regardless of style, “The Phoenix Incident” looks to contain plenty of high voltage action sequences. 

In the clip, star Troy Baker – of voice acting fame – gushes about working with Molinari and the stunt department. Baker’s co-star Travis Willingham talks specifically about one stunt sequence that almost blinded him, but laughs it off, knowing that in the end it’s “all for the fun of the scene.” 

Check out the exclusive behind-the-scenes video above and check Indiewire tomorrow for one final video. “The Phoenix Incident” hits select theaters on April 8.
