Good to Go
23 February 2007 | by UFOdcSee all my reviews

Director of Special Photography for Good to Go , and who's work appears on the soundtrack: WG Allen Please include: www.UFOdc.com. I created a chemical technology which was used to render daily's for the film and often consulted with the producers on film sequences throughout the film. Working on the film for the duration of production in DC, WG Allen was able to create a working copy of the film which was used to represent the film at the Cannes Film fest in 1986 After leaving Good to Go WG went on to work with ABC News in the White House and on board Air Force One. WG is currently a UFO investigator working on Close Encounter Samples taken by him during assignment.
