**UPDATE For every $100 accumulated donation(s) will now have their full names in the movie's closing credits.  This is your chance to be forever recognized for your contribution to the Skinwalker Ranch Documentary.


My name is Ryan Skinner, I am the owner of SkinwalkerRanch.com .  For the past 12 years years I have dedicated my time and resources to researching Skinwalker Ranch with hopes of unlocking this mystery.  Within the last year I have made some incredible new friends, met a few Department of Defense and Corporate insiders, and have experienced several wild paranormal encounters that I have not shared publicly.    I want to be able to tell the CURRENT STORY of Skinwalker Ranch as I have experienced it for the past 12 years.  I have authored 4 books on the topic, however given recent developments I feel now is the time to share with a audience in-depth interviews with witnesses, government agents overseeing the project, and the stories of other modern day researchers all of whom have their own fantastic stories to tell.  Other documentaries on this topic have highlighted the past events on Skinwalker Ranch that occurred before my arrival around 2005.  I wish to share with the audience the story that happened AFTER NIDS was disbanded and the advent of BAASS replaced the personnel on the Ranch; fast-forward to the new Ranch ownership of the Adamantium Company.  I pledge to provide a compelling, adventurous, and thought provoking film that will ignite your imagination and enthusiasm for the topic as infectiously as it has mine.  I will also explore the darker side of the ranch, how it has affected the  onsite personnel, and how the Ranch acts as ground zero for its impact upon the neighboring community.   Where is this all going and where will it all lead is the provocative question this film will attempt to answer.  I am not here to militarize your curiosity, I seek to answer the unanswerable questions; answers that may pose a threat or enlightenment to all humanity.  


I realize how ambitious this film is, especially recognizing that i have zero experience in the film industry, we all must start somewhere.  I have a Bachelors degree with a major in Communications a minor in Theater, a Associate degree in Film/Multimedia,  a active private pilots license, and have authored 4 books on the topic, and most importantly I have the drive, the ambition, an insatiable curiosity, and the enthusiasm to develop this project in a professional manner.    This gofundme project will begin in several phases, this first phase is for me to purchase the necessary audio/visual (wireless mics, 4k camera, stabilizing gear, and a drone) equipment, and to afford flight and accommodations to travel across the country to interview the various people who are critical to telling this story.   

As the initial travel and filming phase concludes, I will progress to phase two which will call for a editing and marketing budget.  At this point the film will be made regardless as I will use my own funds if necessary to see the film produced but for this to reach mainstream interest a large marketing budget will be necessary.

Unlike other films and projects, I want this to be a community driven film.  This will not be MY FILM, I want this to be OUR FILM!  Your input, your donations, will all factor into the exploration process of where we take this project.  Polls will be posted, and your feedback will be adhered to regarding who is interviewed, what topics will be covered, and what editing techniques are employed. The lofty conclusions this film aspires to reach should seek to answer the entire consensus of the gofundme communities burning questions.

A significantly larger opportunity has presented itself. Filming should start in Spring 2019. I now have all of the equipment and contacts lined up. This page will be updated hopefully in the next 2 months. Again an opportunity to film much LARGER presented itself, will provide details if/when things progress.
