“The movie industry keeps getting richer and richer. The market for movie entertainment has grown exponentially, and so have the potential rewards for big hits.” --Forbes
Independent Feature Film - A high concept twist combining action adventure, suspense, and docudrama surrounding a failed false-flag attempt to drag the Cold War Superpowers into the Six-Day War. The covered-up incident – Operation Cyanide, an attack on the USS Liberty spy ship -- is a little-known milestone in history that nearly precipitated WWIII. This Covert Action led directly to escalation of Jihad and terrorism as well as increasing
TRUTH FOR REEL Productions is an entertainment enterprise promoting production of feature-length films for theatrical release. Our stories can be produced as “headline-based” fiction -- docudramas -- or factually-based documentaries. Our group of insightful investigative insiders has a unique perspective on world events, clandestine activity and “deep politics.”
Distinct from the main line of historical fiction, in which the historical setting is a mere backdrop for a plot, docudramas demonstrate some or most of the following characteristics:
- A focus on the facts of the event being treated, as they are known;
- The use of literary and narrative techniques to flesh out or render story-like the bare facts of an event in history;
- A tendency to avoid overt commentary and explicit assertion of the creator's own point of view or beliefs.
TRUTH FOR REEL is currently seeking private funding for production of the dramatic motion picture property GRAVE CONSEQUENCES. The film is commercially exploitable to a mass audience through theatrical exhibition, pay-per view, cable broadcast and all home-video formats, including HD and Blue Ray. Outstanding funding required for completion.
Our goal is to make "movies that matter" - quality, intelligent, commercial films - on modest, cost-efficient budgets. We know how to handle controversial subjects to unpack their stories with emotional logic, without placing “blame,” allowing audiences their own point of view and conclusions. Corrosive secrets are issues that remain or return to relevance. Rather than “fictionalizing,” we illustrate the truth. Conspiracy and “truth” films have gone mainstream. Espionage films remain perennial favorites with wide audiences. “Dramatic license” leaves interpretation open.
The founders of TRUTH FOR REEL Productions bring vision, passion, dedication, and a wealth of talents and experiences to the company. The principals are professional activists and writers with intelligence, promotional, and publishing backgrounds. Our content-driven stories are geared to push the product through all domestic and international venues including U.S. Theatrical, Foreign Theatrical, domestic and foreign network television, video and DVD sales, cable, pay per view and satellite. Our mission is to create valuable feature film products that will generate highly-attractive ROIs for our investors. Obscure, small movies routinely make from two to ten times their investment.

Without placing blame, the film outlines the complex military and intelligence interaction of the US, Soviet Union, UAR (Egypt), Syria and Israel surrounding the Six-Day War, particularly a failed false-flag attempt by joint US-Israeli intelligence, in response to a Soviet-inspired attempt to destroy Israel’s nuclear capacity and sovereignty. The issue remains diplomatically sensitive, but the public is hungrier than ever for fact-based, unsanitized history that outlines The Big Picture that continues to affect our daily lives in tangible ways. These facts would have been torn from the headlines, but they were concealed. The survivors of USS Liberty still await their “rightful” historical place.
Docudramas recreate reality and can be used to explore social and national history. One need only think of the battles fought over docudramas like Oliver Stone's JFK (1991) or Nixon (1995), In the Name of the Father (1993), Malcolm X (1992), Schindler’s List (1993) and “W” (2008) to see the heat which docudrama generates. The docudrama has become a culturally important form which is the site of political battles over the nature of "truth," "reality," and the media manipulation of history and everyday life. This is not a movie-of-the-week biopic, but a film from an inside view of how it might have happened, with the potential for lasting global and artistic importance. The representation of reality is not equal to the reality it represents. But docudrama does make claims to provide a fairly accurate interpretation of real historical events. In other words, it is a non-fictional drama.
Docudrama argues that lost or elusive moral perspectives can be regained. Functional distortions include created dialogues among characters, expressions of internal thoughts, meetings of people that never happened, events reduced to two or three days that actually occurred over weeks, and so forth. While the actuality a work recreates may show the exercise of right and wrong thrown into jeopardy, the docudramatization of actual people, incidents and events ultimately restores a sense of a moral system at work. The world here can still be a place where on some scale, in some way, the struggle for a balance between right and wrong attains coherence.
Standard dramatic formulas from mainstream film and television apply wholesale to representing history. These conventions include a goal-oriented protagonist with clear motivations; a small number of central characters (two to three) with more stereotyping for secondary characters; causes that are generally ascribed to personal sources rather than structural ones (psychological traumas rather than institutional dynamics); a dramatic structure geared to the length of the program (a two-hour movie might have the normal "seven-act" structure); and an intensification of emotional ploys. The desire for emotional engagement by the viewers (a feature valuable for maintaining the audience through commercials) produces an inflection of the docudrama into several traditional genres. In particular, docudramas may appeal to affects of suspense, terror, or tears of happiness or sadness.
Critical quibbling aside, the docudrama is one of the most popular and lucrative genres in
Foreign markets comprise more than half of a film’s revenue, so our emphasis is on storylines that have interest on all continents. Popular and profitable documentaries have proven that people will go see intelligent movies that strip away propaganda and historical lies. Controversy sells tickets and becomes a built-in aspect of PR. Other options with growing markets include Non-traditional Films, Large format films, direct-to-DVD movies, and small screen films, each having unique market characteristics.
The theatre-going general public thrives on action films with a story. We will do everything in our creative power to make this revealing film receive a rating PG-13 from the MPAA so that it could be suitable for teenagers as well as our primary target audience, which are males 18-65 years of age. All completed films have a significant value in the international marketplace.
STAGES OF PRODUCTION
The budget will cover all stages of production from pre-production to principal photography and post-production, including sound and editing, public relations and marketing campaigns during post-production and after the film’s completion, music clearances and rights, composer, insurance, completion bond, contingencies, and cast. Budget minimum and maximum are cast contingent.

Had it been revealed, OPERATION CYANIDE meant certain political suicide for the Johnson Administration. The veil of absolute secrecy still conceals the betrayal of USS Liberty’s military and intelligence personnel, who were silenced for decades in the name of national security. Only the most valorous acts of courage saved the remaining crew and the ship from disappearing into the Deep with all her secrets including the newly deployed Moon Bounce Antenna.

The BBC, History Channel and other media have occasionally covered the story, but recently new disclosures and revelations have expanded the story. No dramatization has ever been done, because both US and Israeli governments have covered up the truth with the “plausible deniability” that the attack was a case of “mistaken identity”. Now, many influential government and military personnel say it absolutely isn’t so. We have the facts and the story wants to be told so the world knows what happened and what horrible consequences nearly ensued.
The synopsis (above) was shopped at NAPTE, 2010 where it was determined better suited to feature film development. It has been extensively researched with core content and characters identified. We have contacted some of the surviving participants for personal stories. A recontextualization has generated publication interest. Online versions of the story have drawn positive response.

Upon securing first monies through private financing, the Grave Consequences Company will seek out pre-sold distribution or negative pickup with a letter of agreement or letter of credit from interested distributors to assist in putting together the total budget for the picture. At present, all rights (including theatrical, cable, broadcast, pay-per-view, home-video, and international) are available.
In a seller´s market, every distributor wants to outmaneuver their competitors and acquire the few commercial independent films available at any given time. Given the scarcity of exceptional, excellent, or even quality ones, we anticipate a lot of competition for all our films, especially GRAVE CONSEQUENCES, which has the potential to ignite a rather fierce bidding war.

US Warns Israel –There Will Be No ‘USS Liberty Pt II’
February 15, 2010
For the last 41 years, Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty has been a taboo topic about which neither the Jewish state nor the US has allowed free and open discussion. Like a paid-off judge in the service of organized crime interests pounding his gavel on the bench, for the last 4 decades Israel and her supporters in the US government have bellowed ‘case closed’ and have raked over the coals anyone–including the survivors of the attack themselves–from arguing otherwise. Realizing the tidal wave of outrage that would occur if the American people were to come of age and lose their innocence in realizing what Israel did in murdering 34 American servicemen 4 decades ago in a premeditated act of war (to say nothing of the cover-up perpetrated by the US government) it has been on the list of forbidden topics……until recently.
Cutting short his trip in Europe the first week of July, recently-appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Adm. Mike Mullen flew to Tel Aviv along with an entourage of high-ranking US military personnel and, upon his arrival, rushed to meet with the highest-ranking members of Israel’s military establishment. While this is not unusual (as many such meetings have been taking place as of late) what was unusual was the topic discussed–Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty 41 years ago during the 6 day war and how ‘important’ it was that ‘history not repeat itself,’ given the present tensions existing between Israel and Iran. Considering the subject of that meeting and the well-known cover-up that has taken place these last 41 years, the meeting should have made headline news all over America. Sadly, however, it did not, just another testimony to the fact that America is now officially ‘occupied territory’ every bit as much as Arab Palestine.
The fact that the meeting took place at all is news enough, but what is of even more importance is what can be inferred from the meeting. Given the fact that this brazen 2 hour attack upon the United States has been hushed up these last 41 years, there can be little else to conclude by Mullen’s meeting other than the obvious–That someone from within the intelligence or military apparatus of the United States has looked towards the horizon and concluded that Israel is planning a ‘USS Liberty Pt II,’ meaning an attack on a US ship, most likely in the Persian Gulf, leading to a massive loss of life to be then blamed on Iran. As was intended in 1967 when Israel attacked the Liberty, Americans would be incensed into such a war frenzy that they would demand the ‘obliteration’ (a la Hillary Clinton) of the guilty party, the false identity of which the Jewish media establishment in America would be all too glad to provide. And while all players involved have been tight-lipped about the particulars of this story, what can be concluded nevertheless is that Mullen’s impromptu trip to Israel and subsequent discussion was in effect a stern warning to Israel of ‘Don’t even think about it bubba’.
Those who suspect that Mullen (a company man not cut from the same cloth as the recently ‘retired’ Adm. William Fallon) has been afflicted with a sudden case of patriotic fever should consider this recent news against the more likely backdrop of sheer pragmatism. The sad fact is, patriotism more than likely had little to do with it. The US is having its rear end handed to it in Iraq and Afghanistan and now some in Washington are beginning to realize that they‘ve just put their foot into something nasty with regards to Israel’s dirty wars in the Middle East that will never be finished as long as she exists. With oil and virtually all consumer products skyrocketing in price simultaneous to the US economy going down the drain, some now understand that by signing on as Israel’s pit bull in the Muslim world that America will wind up paying the ultimate price for her devotion to the Jewish state, meaning the complete destruction of her economy and her position as a world power.
It is no secret Mullen is very friendly when it comes to the great experiment in Jewish self rule in the Middle East as well as his willingness to tow the line with regards to the sworn enemies of that great experiment. Immediately after the release of the National Intelligence Estimate in early December of 2007 stating that Iran had no nuclear weapons program America’s highest ranking military officer high-tailed it to Israel (the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to do so in a decade) to reassure her of America’s support that would last ‘1,000 years’.
As of late however, America’s top general officer seems to be singing a different tune with regards to widening the present debacle to include war with Iran that stands the very real chance of bringing into the fray nuclear-armed nations such as Russia and China. Out of necessity therefore he has now joined with saner voices both inside and outside the Bush administration who are trying to prevent an otherwise apocalyptic end to America. In discussing an attack on Iran Mullen recently stated that opening a third front would be ‘extremely stressful’ on the US military and added that it would lead to consequences ‘difficult to predict’, adding that “There is need for better clarity, even dialogue at some level.”
And this, added to all the other things taking place these days (not excluding of course the talk of withdrawing US troops from Iraq) is what is making Israel jittery to the point she would contemplate pulling off another ‘USS Liberty’. For the sake of her own survival she simply cannot afford to have her ‘fixer’ in the Middle East walk away from a ‘hit’ to which he has been assigned, and it is for this reason that forward-thinking people in the US are beginning to sense Israel may soon pull a few surprises out of her infamous black bag of dirty tricks.
Once the stomping grounds solely of ‘anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists’ that the Jewish state might pull a fast one in order to get the US involved in a war for her own interests, now ‘respectable’ people have begun to voice such thoughts openly as well. In a recent piece appearing in an issue of American Conservative Magazine entitled ‘If Iran is Attacking, It Might Really Be Israel’, ex-CIA officer Phillip Giraldi writes as follows–
‘Some intel types are beginning to express concerns that the Israelis might do something completely crazy to get the US involved. There are a number of possible “false flag” scenarios in which the Israelis could stage an incident that they will make to look Iranian, either by employing Iranian weapons or by leaving a communications footprint that points to Tehran’s involvement. Those who argue Israel would never do such a thing should think again. Israel is willing to behave with complete ruthlessness towards the US if they feel that the stakes are high enough. Witness the attack on the USS Liberty and the bombing of the US Consulate in Alexandria in the 1950s. If they now believe that Iran is a threat that must be eliminated it is not implausible to assume they will stop at nothing to get the United States to do it for them, particularly as their air force is only able to damage the Iranian nuclear program, not destroy it…’
Joined alongside Giraldi is former long-time CIA analyst Ray McGovern who in his most recent piece ‘Israel Planning a September/October Surprise?’ writes the following with regards to the US pulling out of the Middle East and what Israel might do as a result–
‘My guess is the Israeli leaders are apoplectic…This dramatic change — or even just the specter of it — greatly increases Israel’s incentive to ensure US involvement in the area that would endure for several years. The Israelis need to create “facts on the ground” — something to guarantee Washington will stand by “our ally.” The legislation drafted by AIPAC calls for a blockade of Iran. That would be one way to entangle; there are many others. The point is that the growing danger the Israelis perceive will probably prompt them to find a way to get the US involved in hostilities with Iran. All Israel has to do is to arrange to be attacked. Not a problem. There are endless possibilities among which Israel can choose to catalyze such a confrontation. Viewed from Tel Aviv it appears an increasingly threatening situation, with more urgent need to “embed” (so to speak) the United States even more deeply in the region — in a confrontation involving both countries with Iran. A perfect storm is brewing…In sum, Israel is likely to be preparing a September/October surprise designed to keep the US bogged down in Iraq and in the wider region by provoking hostilities with Iran. And don’t be surprised if it starts as early as August…
Readers will recall that American Free Press newspaper predicted in the aftermath of the National Intelligence Estimate being released that the prospect of war with Iran being cancelled (or delayed) would likely result in Israel resorting to desperate measures in getting her way. AFP further speculated that the timing of the release of the NIE was suspicious, coming just a few days before Dec 7, the day Americans remember the attack on Pearl Harbor and that possibly the release of the report was timed to prevent a sneak attack by an Israeli sub on a US ship stationed in the Persian Gulf.
For her part, Israel is attempting to play the role of the innocent, cooperative and concerned ally in the wake of Mullen’s meeting by summoning Judge Jay Cristol, a federal bankruptcy judge in Miami and devoted Zionist who wrote a book in 2002 exculpating Israel of any wrongdoing in the Liberty attack. He is lecturing at military academies in Haifa and Ashdod on how to avoid the ‘mistakes’ that led to the attack on the Liberty.
One thing is for certain. Out of all the topics to be discussed with his Israeli counterparts, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mullen picked the topic of the USS Liberty, and not because he felt nostalgic, sentimental or even–Heaven forbid–guilty over the way the Liberty survivors have been treated these last 41 years. He, like many within the military and intelligence establishment, no doubt realizes that America sits at the precipice of destruction and is no doubt trying to pull her back before that proverbial ‘point of no return’ is reached, if in fact it has not been reached already.
And as sobering a theme as all this may be, the fact is that it may turn out to be much worse. What Israel wants, Israel gets, and the fact that an attack on a US ship has been thwarted does not mean that the fat lady has sung, as now the likelihood of a false flag attack on the American mainland has been made all the more probable. This time however, just for good measure and for spite, it might not be a city building coming down after being struck by an airliner, but rather an entire city being consumed in a mushroom cloud, courtesy of a place called Dimona and a criminal organization known as Mossad.
