MAKING CONTACT

MakingContact

An otherworldly experience in your backyard.

MAKING CONTACT is a science-fiction adventure tale that chronicles one night in the sleepy New England home of the estranged Vogel siblings: the athletic, popular, straight-A high school senior Amy and the isolated, dorky, black-sheep freshman Roy. Left home alone after their single mother Kate, a doctor, is called away to work at the emergency room for the night, Roy accidentally fires one of his model rockets into Amy’s room, crashing into her latest science fair project — an old transistor radio she’s rebuilt as a video messenger. The collision of rocket and radio sends a message to the stars, summoning an alien invader to the Vogels’ backyard. Forced to defend their home — and possibly the whole planet — from the marauding, otherworldly threat, Amy and Roy reconcile their issues with each other and band together for an intergalactic showdown of suburban proportions.

MAKING CONTACT is the NYU senior thesis film of Greg Loftus — and if you’ve ever wanted to get into the movie business, here’s your chance: Go to the MAKING CONTACT Indiegogo site and see how you can participate:

MURDEROUS SPIRIT – Jack Tyrrell was a burn out. A former Green Beret and U.S. Marshal, he’s become a drunken loser who, once upon a time, accepted a bribe and was shot by the people who bribed him. Tyrrell survived the shooting. His wife, Maggie, did not.

Five years after her death, Maggie appears to him as a ghost and offers him a chance to make things right. She introduces Tyrrell to Harry, who may literally be heaven-sent. Tyrrell, with Harry working as his case manager, sets out to help a veteran who’s suffering from PTSD and has assassinated a pair of Wall Street CEOs.

Action, murdered Wall Street titans, the Russian mafia, and a beautiful woman mix with questions regarding free will and what constitutes moral behavior to give this thriller a spiritual edge.

“Can one author combine a thriller, a romance and a ghost story? Geoff Loftus does so admirably in his fast-paced, well written and engrossing new novel about a man given a second chance from a wholly unexpected source: his dead wife, whose murder he holds himself responsible for. Let this one-of-a-kind story teach you something about love, forgiveness and even faith.”

– James Martin, SJ, bestselling author of A Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and The Abbey

Tyrrell’s story is a mix of Charles Dickens, Philip K. Dick and a Jack Reacher thriller told by a sad, yet funny narrator — it’s a wonderfully entertaining and spiritually engaging.
