Travis – The True story of Travis Walton, was three years in the making. All living members of the original logging crew are featured.

Stein said, “I acknowledge the bravery of Travis and his fellow logging crew-members who could have debunked this story because of the unfavorable media attention it was getting. They could have saved themselves from years of ridicule and claimed it was all a hoax, but they never did…. They all stuck to the truth their story, all these 40 years in spite of the ridicule they endured. The film is a personal interest story into how this event challenged their lives and changed their lives forever.”

This three-year project would not have been possible without the support of support staff listed in the film credits and the media page of the web site.

Stein said, “Bob Terrio and I undertook this project with Travis because Hollywood would not, or could not tell the true story of Travis Walton. We don’t need to make these stories up, that only confuses everyone, and the truth is more interesting.”

Their goal: to make a documentary that was not a UFO film, but a great documentary about what happened to a logging crew in 1975 in Heber, Arizona; because this event could have happened to anyone. Their hope: that the film serves as a breakthrough in traditional film festivals, opening minds not necessarily interested in the UFO phenomena who may find compassion for Travis and his logging crew.
