Jennifer invited everyone up onstage to accept the award with her at the International UFO congress EBE film award event.[vc_single_image image="1351" Alejandro Rojas, Master of Ceremonies for the International UFO Congress’s EBE Film Festival Awards presents Ron James and Jennifer Stein with their second EBE award for the night, winning the film Travis – The True Story of Travis Walton, on February 20, 2015.
Ron and Jennifer look at each other with amazement as this was the second time Ron and Jennifer had won two EBE film festival awards back to back.

Ron and Jennifer produced the Disclosure Dialogues in 2012 which also won two EBE film festival awards back to back 3 years before. The first film was for the Best long version film submission for that season, and the second award was the people choice award as the best film screened in the entire film festival which takes place over 5 days during the UFO conference.

It is very unusual to win two awards at the same festival. It’s like winning best picture and best screenplay at the academy awards. The IUFOC is the largest and only film festival and UFO conference in the world. Their awards are hard to get and highly coveted due to the unique nature of this field and the sophisticated audience who know how to sort thru the wheat from the shaft. This meant this was their 4th award in under 3 years. As Jennifer passed the microphone to Ron because she was speechless, Ron turns to the audience to thank them for their vote of confidence in their team effort, with several other talented people to bring Travis’s story to life in a new way.

In April 2015, Jennifer W. Stein and Ron James worked on re-enactment studio shots in Ron’s Studio, the LAB in Hawthorne, CA to improve upon the abduction scenes. Here is a glimpse of these scenes.

Our actor Jeff did a fantastic job portraying Travis’s experiences.
