In 1957 the Pentagon received a visitor from another world named Valiant Thor. Instead of expelling this stranger, the Eisenhower administration accepted him as their guest for over three years. To this day, no one is certain if he was an alien being, an angel in human form or if it was all a big hoax. Filmmaker Craig Campobasso recounts the events surrounding Valiant Thor’s tenure at the Pentagon and shares details of his divine design for humanity in this interview with Regina Meredith originally webcast October 14, 2014.
Fresh out of high school, Craig Campobasso found himself working behind the scenes on Frank Herbert’s Dune. Dino and Raffaella De Laurentiis, and director David Lynch became his filmmaking mentors. He has been casting movies and TV for more than three decades and was nominated for an Emmy for casting David E. Kelly’s Picket Fences. Craig directed, wrote & produced Stranger at the Pentagon, from the book by Frank Stranges about Valiant Thor. It just won Best Sci-Fi Short Film at the 2014 Burbank Int'l Film Festival.
