UFO thriller catches imagination of Manotick filmmaker From MANOTICK, page 1

When Dan arrives at his uncle’s cabin in Falcon Lake, he heads into the woods to find the spot where his mother died of strange burns. But instead of finding answers, he discovers the energy mass that killed his mother. It starts chasing him and his love interest, Cheyna, and the pair must descend into the uranium mine to escape it. This is where “terrifying events unfold,” according to Windle, who didn’t want to spoil the ending. The Diefenbunker’s electrical room, where the genera-

tors, air ventilation, water intake tunnels and other necessary infrastructure still exist, posed as the abandoned lab. The climax of the movie was shot there over the course of two weekends in May. Other scenes were shot in a wooded area in Ottawa and at a cabin on Bobs Lake west of Perth. He said the film should be ready for release in July, at which point he hopes to have a Canadian distribution contract for DVD or even limited theatrical release. In October he will travel

to California to secure US licensing as well. As he still works full time with his IT company, he said he aspires to make one feature film each summer. Next year’s project is already in the works about a recovered alcoholic living on the street, who discovers $2.5 million in abandoned drug money. When he decides to take it his life is significantly affected, Windle said. This year’s sci-fi thriller will likely be shown at the Mayfair when it’s finished, Windle said.
