Laura Mennell (Mimi Hynek) will be Hathaway/Olivia Parker in THE SUBCONSCIOUS DREAMER, a film set in Los Angeles in a distant future where the world is run by a science-minded government trying to correct the human causes of global climate change by implementing a neuro-chip system. Every citizen is given (at birth) an AI implant designed to guide their lives and ensure that the choices they make benefit the world. Elizabeth Parker (Olivia’s daughter played by Kerry Kruppe) wakes from a dream for the first time (because the neuro-chip system has abolished the ability to dream). Her dream reveals a family she never knew and a powerful image of a Dark Horse. Written and directed by Amy D’Allesandro Stolz, THE SUBCONSCIOUS DREAMER is currently in production in California.
Mennell is also be Ren in Florian Halbedl’s short film CIRCLE.

PROJECT BLUE BOOK – Season 2 Episode 10 – SPOILERS
Susie (Ksenia Solo) and Mimi (Laura Mennell) in what looks like a classic confrontation between East and West with the Generals between in the background.
NATO’s fleet in the North Atlantic is plagued with UFO sightings which the fleet commander attributes to the Russians, causing him to set a course dangerously close to Soviet waters. Hynek and Quinn must prove the extraterrestrial (or at least non-Soviet) nature of these craft to prevent World War III. The first question that comes to mind is: What are these ETs thinking? Having observed human military activities throughout World War II, they must be aware of how people will respond to their sudden and uncommunicative appearance in such a situation. Are they trying to start a war? Continue reading →
Mimi (Laura Mennell) talks to Susie (Ksenia Solo) through a bathroom door that symbolizes the barriers between them that must be overcome.
Quinn and Hynek return to the Project Blue Book offices after the events in Washington at the end of Season One, and someone named John (Daryl Sabara) surprises them with a visit. “Hangar 18,” he says. “That’s what they call it but it’s not really a hangar. It looks like a storage building. The real lab is six floors below. That’s where I work; I’m a mechanical engineer. When the Air Force hired me they told me I was working for something called the Technical Air Intelligence Unit. I was supposed to be analyzing, breaking down, and reverse engineering Soviet technology. but the craft we’ve been working on, it’s not Russian.” Hynek asks if he believes it’s of extraterrestrial origin, and John says, “The technology of these things, it’s beyond our capabilities. Way beyond.” John asks them to meet him off base and gives them evidence of his sincerity: a metallic disk just like the one that was found in the neck of Thomas Mann in “Abduction” (Episode 1.9). John is caught trying to smuggle classified materials off the base and Quinn and Hynek are called on the carpet for trying to meet with him. Continue reading →
