The Life After Death Project -- THE LIFE AFTER DEATH PROJECT is Paul Davids' feature documentary (1 hr 46 min) as shown on Syfy. It is a mesmerizing quest for proof of survival of consciousness after death, and for After Death Communication (ADC). 4 New York Times best-selling authors (Richard Matheson, Whitley Strieber, Dannion Brinkley, Dr. Michael Shermer), 3 top science professors (Dr. Gary Schwartz, Dr. Jay Siegel and Dr. John Allison) and three well-respected mediums make a leap into the unknown, investigating astonishing evidence in the case of apparent After Death Communication from Sci-Fi luminary Forrest J Ackerman. He was an important figure in the development of science-fiction, a 'founding father' born in 1916 who played a key role in lifting the genre from the fringes into the mainstream, inspiring generations of top filmmakers (Peter Jackson, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Rick Baker, Dennis Muren and many others) who helped turn special effects films into a multi-billion dollar industry. Ackerman's far-reaching influence was covered in the Saturn-Award winning Paul Davids film from Universal, 'THE SCI-FI BOYS,' honored as Best DVD of 2006. Now director Davids and several others who were close to 'Uncle Forry' are convinced that, despite Ackerman's skepticism while he was alive, he has 'dropped them a line' from The Other Side, just as he promised he would do if he discovered he was wrong about life after death. The filmmaker demonstrates that the 'contacts' have continued for four years since his mentor's passing, and mediums from Israel, Australia and New Mexico add uncanny confirmations. This film (being released on DVD in a 2-DVD set with its equally compelling sequel), considers at least 4 categories of evidence, taking us from skeptics to spiritualists and then to ground-breaking computer software developed by Dr. Gary Schwartz, that appears to facilitate communication
