Doug is also fascinated with the topic of UFOs. He has labeled his UFO hunting efforts the UFOTOG project (a meshing of the words UFO and photography). UFOTOG includes a Hummer decked out with photographic equipment and a short film about a man searching for UFOs. He has also partnered with MUFON’s Chief Photo and Video Analyst Marc Dantonio to research and develop a self-contained modular device that can scan the skies for unidentified objects and capture scientific data using a variety of instruments.
