A Must See Documentary About Instrumental Transcommunication

Daniel Drasin labored for several years to put together a documentary on various means of Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC) entitled Calling Earth. As I have stated before on this site, ITC Voices and during lectures for several years, my working definition of ITC is:


Drasin’s work is a masterpiece about ITC and we feel it is a must-see documentary to round out your paranormal education. Here is what the documentary producer had to say in an email about the film when he released the finished product on October 25, 2018.

Dean Drasin Email Upon ‘Calling Earth’ Release:

Dear friends,

After nearly 15 years’ worth of travel, inspiration, procrastination and nitsy post-production work, I’ve finally finished the first complete edit of my 95-minute documentary, Calling Earth. You can see it at or


Calling Earth probes the puzzling phenomenon of Instrumental Trans-communication — apparent messages from the “other side” received through modern electronic and photographic devices. “ITC” has been well documented by researchers at least as far back as the 1950s when tape recorders first became available to the general public and unexplained voices began to show up in people’s recordings.

When I first became aware of this research in the mid-1990s I was highly skeptical. But the accumulated evidence eventually transformed my doubts into curiosity, and in 2001 I started filming a documentary on the subject. Between 2004 and 2009 I was joined by co-producer Tim Coleman, with whom I traveled across the US and to England, Scotland and Spain, filming various facets of ITC as well as other aspects of modern afterlife research. Tim then went on to complete his own documentary, The Afterlife Investigations, while I continued to produce Calling Earth. My last excursion, in February 2014, took me to the Netherlands, where I spent a week filming an extraordinary young man whose ability to make visual ITC happen under controlled conditions is impressive to say the least.


The notion of an “other side” or an “afterlife” makes no sense from the perspective of modern materialism, just as the notion of a solar system made no sense in Medieval times when the Earth appeared to be the center of things. But our understanding of the natural world has always evolved and expanded as we’ve mustered the courage to follow the evidence where it leads.

Sometimes a simple shift of perspective is all we’ve needed to enlarge our understanding of reality and let our minds comfortably encompass things formerly deemed inexplicable or nonexistent by the academic and ideological gatekeepers of the day. Come the Renaissance, putting the Sun at the center of things transformed our view of our place in the universe. Today, the willingness to consider consciousness as primary and independent — as interactive with the brain rather than somehow being manufactured by it — seems to set the stage for welcoming many so-called paranormal phenomena into the natural order of things. From this perspective, the notion that consciousness might also interact with sensitive electronic equipment may not be as great a stretch as one might imagine.

So I invite you to have a look at the evidence presented in Calling Earth and see what you think. I hope you enjoy it and that you’ll feel free to offer your comments, questions and critiques on its Vimeo page.
