to me
Dear Mr. Villacorta:

Recently, the Academy’s Grants Committee met to select the recipients of the Academy Film Scholars Grants.  Out of 95 applications received, the Committee members were pleased and excited to discover a number of exceptional proposals.  After a great deal of discussion including praise for a number of the proposals, the committee ultimately selected two.  Regrettably, your proposal was not selected.

The recipients of this year’s Academy Film Scholars Grants are Christopher Beach for his proposal "The Image on the Screen:  Directors, Cinematographers, and the Collaborative Process" and Thomas Schatz for his proposal "Hollywood in the Conglomerate Age".

The committee asked me to inform the applicants how much they enjoyed reading the proposals and how worthy many of them seemed.  They anticipate that a good number of the proposals will come to fruition. 

Best of luck in all your future endeavors.

Sincerely,
Shawn Guthrie
Grants Coordinator

Project Title

Hollywood: PSYOP, 811 & Horus.
Project Statement Summary

Hollywood is the United States Intelligence Community propaganda machine. It is used to develop long term psychological operations (PSYOP) by conditioning the public mind with little pieces of information disseminated through many apparently unrelated movies. These PSYOP create attitudes in relation to specific coming events, demonize future enemies of the United States and divulge a particular religion through extremely subtle techniques relying on the storytelling, the background visual information present in the frame and subliminals that are not immediately noticed in the movies and their posters. The religion can be described as "The Cult of Horus." A careful examination of the films, the links that the people who make them have with the intelligence community and certain political events of international importance like 911 and 811 will show us how both themes, PSYOP & Horus, are inextricably intertwined in the Hollywood movies.

HOLLYWOOD: PSYOP, 811 & HORUS. Project Statement

The objective of this project is to write a book that will analyze the development of long term PSYOP in the cinema of the United States. The findings of the research will be detailed in the following five chapters:

Table of Contents:
1. Masonic America And Long Term PSYOP.
2. Demonizing Iraq: “The Exorcist” & “Dune.”
3. 911 & Horus in Hollywood movies.
4. 811 & Horus in Hollywood movies.
5. Peru: Covert psychological warfare in Hollywood movies.

Perception depends on political interest. As a consequence, the methodology is an analysis of American movies from a political perspective paying attention to the details that are related to our research. For example, it is not possible to notice the word “sex” embedded in the poster of “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” if we are not looking for it:


From a marxist perspective class struggle is the engine of history. This assertion means that, because the movies are only a hundred years old, they are an aspect of the contemporary conflict between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat and they are used to reduce the workers’ class conciousness. In “Ideology And The Ideological State Apparatuses” (1970), Louis Althuser pointed out that:
I shall call Ideological State Apparatuses a certain number of realities which present themselves to the immediate observer in the form of distinct and specialized institutions. I propose an empirical list of these which will obviously have to be examined in detail, tested, corrected and re-organized. With all the reservations implied by this requirement, we can for the moment regard the following institutions as Ideological State Apparatuses (the order in which I have listed them has no particular significance):
● the religious ISA (the system of the different churches),
● the educational ISA (the system of the different public and private ‘schools’),
● the family ISA,
● the legal ISA,
● the political ISA (the political system, including the different parties),
● the trade-union ISA,
● the communications ISA (press, radio and television, etc.),
● the cultural ISA (literature, the arts, sports, etc.).
I have said that the ISAs must not be confused with the (Repressive) State Apparatus. What constitutes the difference?
As a first moment, it is clear that while there is one (Repressive) State Apparatus, there is a plurality of Ideological State Apparatuses. Even presupposing that it exists, the unity that constitutes this plurality of ISAs as a body is not immediately visible.
As a second moment, it is clear that whereas the unified – (Repressive) State Apparatus belongs entirely to the public domain, much the larger part of the Ideological State Apparatuses (in their apparent dispersion) are part, on the contrary, of the private domain. Churches, Parties, Trade Unions, families, some schools, most newspapers, cultural ventures, etc., etc., are private.
We can ignore the first observation for the moment. But someone is bound to question the second, asking me by what right I regard as Ideological State Apparatuses, institutions which for the most part do not possess public status, but are quite simply private institutions. As a conscious Marxist, Gramsci already forestalled this objection in one sentence. The distinction between the public and the private is a distinction internal to bourgeois law, and valid in the (subordinate) domains in which bourgeois law exercises its ‘authority’. The domain of the State escapes it because the latter is ‘above the law’: the State, which is the State of the ruling class, is neither public nor private; on the contrary, it is the precondition for any distinction between public and private. The same thing can be said from the starting-point of our State Ideological Apparatuses. It is unimportant whether the institutions in which they are realized are ‘public’ or ‘private’. What matters is how they function. Private institutions can perfectly well ‘function’ as Ideological State Apparatuses. A reasonably thorough analysis of any one of the ISAs proves it.
But now for what is essential. What distinguishes the ISAs from the (Repressive) State Apparatus is the following basic difference: the Repressive State Apparatus functions ‘by violence’, whereas the Ideological State Apparatuses function by ideology’.
I can clarify matters by correcting this distinction. I shall say rather that every State Apparatus, whether Repressive or Ideological, ‘functions’ both by violence and by ideology, but with one very important distinction which makes it imperative not to confuse the Ideological State Apparatuses with the (Repressive) State Apparatus.[1]
Thus, the same interest is behind the public and the private Ideological State Apparatuses. So, censorship is common in the public institutions as James William Fulbright, a United States Senator who represented Arkansas from 1945 to 1975, noticed. He wrote in “The Pentagon Propaganda Machine” (1970):

The Department of Defense likes to dabble in filmmaking. Besides propagandizing the American people with television films produced expressly to show the positive side of the war in Vietnam, the military to a considerable degree also ensures that the presentation of military themes in commercial motion pictures and documentaries "will benefit the DoD or otherwise be in the national interest."
The quoted phrase is from Department of Defense Instruction 5410.15, "Delineation of DoD Audio-Visual Public Affairs Responsibilities and Policies," a document that gives the requirements a commercial film producer must meet to get assistance from the military for his production. At first glance, these requirements seem sensible enough. When you consider some of these scenes purpoted to represent men of the armed services in action, in camp, and on the town that have been shown in motion pictures and on television over the years, to ask for "authenticity of the portrayal of military operations or historical incidents, persons or places" does not seem to be asking to much. Nor do other requirements set forth in the instruction seem unwarranted. These include "compliance with accepted standards of dignity and propriety," noninterference with the "operational readiness" of the military services, restriction of filming to "normal military activities" to the largest extent possible, and payment to the government for the use of military equipment and facilities.
However, another document, Instruction 5410.16, which spells out the procedures that must be followed by a producer who wants military assistance, when added to by the Department of Defense's use of these procedures, results in something resembling censorship.[2]

This censorship have been studied by David L. Robb in “Operation Hollywood: How The Pentagon Shapes and Censors The Movies.”[3] The members of U.S. Intelligence Community[4] actively coordinate with the producers of mainstream films, as can be seen through their websites:

1) Department of Defense
2) Air Force
3) Army
4) Navy
5) Marine Corps
6) Coast Guard
7) Federal Bureau of Investigation
8) Central Intelligence Agency
9) Department of Homeland Security

The American movies are propaganda, tools of psychological warfare[5] that are weaponized by a relatively low number of people who understand this function. Due to the nature of their work this people constitute an organization similar to a secret society[6] and, because of the characteristics of human nature, we can expect that they sign their masterworks as a proud craftsman would feel tempted to do. In any case, if they resist this temptation, we can recognize their modus operandi. An occult way of identifying themselves would be what I call “The Cult Of Horus” that is expressed in the movies through situations, gestures and objects of ritual significance.[7]
I am a marketing and event manager and I understand that in order to sell the product its promotion is required. These long term PSYOP are marketing tools of a model of society. Because of my professional experience I can follow the logic behind PSYOP, the movie business, the secret societies and the importance of rituals. Also, I am an actor who has worked as assistant director and film editor and through these experiences I am aware of the rol of appearances and illusions.

This project is important because the information will help to improve the way PSYOP is developed through movies around the world. Due to cultural and historical differences, it is difficult to achieve the global goals behind these PSYOP with the movies made in Hollywood by “The “Cult Of Horus.” In my opinion, local movies adapted to specific needs should carry these PYSOP but, because “The Cult Of Horus” works as a secret society, the members feel threaten by what might seem to be a reduction of their power because the production of local movies means interference with local markets (that should be monopolized by American movies.) In my experience this is not the case.

As Media and Image Consultant for the Peruvian filmmaker Leonidas Zegarra, I decided in 2010 that his film project of that year should support the Catholic Church. The editing of that movie was sponsored by my blog perucine.blogspot.com. Thanks to that movie, the following film was supported financially by the Catholic Church. This year 2012 the movie was released. Today, the official dvd copies of the movie are being sold legally in the streets of Bolivia by the same street vendors who sell pirated dvds of American films and the filmmaker is writing the script of his next project, that will be supported financially by the Catholic Church, too. If we think in long terms, we can imagine that someday the Catholic ideology could force the banning of the American movies in Bolivia due to their “satanic” content, specially if the prohibition contributes to consolidate the movie monopoly of the Catholic Church. This is speculation based on how the events are developing and we can see that not making local movies that would carry the PSYOP of “The Cult Of Horus” could be a (financial and ideological) mistake but only time will tell.

The book “HOLLYWOOD: PSYOP, 811 & HORUS”[8] could be a guide for local producers who want to support the PSYOP designed by “The Cult Of Horus.”

In “Lethal Weapon” (1987), directed by Richard Donner, as viewers we can ask ourselves why Martin Riggs / Mel Gibson is wearing huge glasses. This would be a refence to Horus / Ra by emphasizing the “big eyes.” If this statement might seem outlandish, we can see that previously in the same scene Roger Murtaugh / Danny Glover has shown the “sign of silence” becoming a ‘living’ Harpocrates who, according to wikipedia “was adapted by the Greeks from the Egyptian child god Horus”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harpocrates. The whole scene of the explosion can be as a PSYOP when we notice that in the street signs are written two sentences: “NO PARKING ANY TIME” “EXCEPT 9 – 11 AM WEDNESDAY” . The word NO has white letters and it is inside a red square. The shape of the letters of the word NO is the same that the word OZ has when the O is above the Z, like this:
O
Z
In the film “The Wizard Of OZ” (1939) the wizard is an ordinary man who depends on illusions to frighten Dorothy and her companions. We can see that when Murtaugh and Riggs walk toward the house there is an airplane behind the snowman situated at the top of the house. The entrance of the house resembles the Eye of Providence (the all-seeing eye of God) because the main lines that define the entrance are those of a triangle and a circle. After the explosion of the house, when the airplane is leaving the frame, a second airplane enters into the frame. So, we have two airplanes, an explosion that demolished a house, 911, the Eye of Providence, Horus, Harpocrates and OZ in a scene that belongs to a movie from Hollywood. Evidently, the scene was designed to indicate the relation between Hollywood, PSYOP, 911 and “The Cult of Horus” in advance to the “attack” in New York the year 2001.
Richard Donner, director and producer of the movie was interviewed by the Archive Of American Television on June 22, 2006
In the interview Mr. Donner explained that he usually introduces subtle visual messages in the movies he directs and produces (he has final cut.) Also, he indicated that he was in a U.S. Navy Photographic Unit for one year.
Joel Silver is the other producer of “Lethal Weapon.” Mr. Silver has produced movies like “Die Hard” (1988), “Die Hard 2” (1990), “The Last Boy Scout” (1991), “Assassins” (1995), “Conspiracy Theory” (1997), “Swordfish” (2001) and “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” (2005), movies that deal with conspiracies, the Intelligence Community and terrorist attacks.
[8] 811 as an “attack” has not happened yet but, after analyzing the data, I deduce that it is already planned.
