Chasing Rainfall

Hi my name is Steven Sohlstrom and I writing this to address a group (identity of which is not known to me) that took interest in the ongoing saga between myself and the end of fear organization. Apparently, a debate was sparked by the film which I made to expose what Jessica and Diego did to Melissa and I. A healthy debate is always a good thing when arriving at an objective opinion when sorting out the truth. As a person with a journalism and news background, I both respect and encourage such debate. I am unaware of the identity of this group and blind to any ongoing discussion. I can be contacted directly. I stand behind the film I made. Unfortunately, the rebuttal to my film is not a private apology by the eof, or acceptance of accountability, but a very public smear campaign. Going beyond that, lives are being hurt, reputations damaged, and finances obliterated in the continuing “puppetry” that continues to distract from an ever expanding crime of exploitation. My wish to the sympathisers of the EOF is to demand that it stop. My film is real, I stand behind it and I also stand against the continuing victimization of Melissa who will be fortunate if she even has enough money left to find her way back to the United States, or ever even to get word that she is still loved and supported back home. The most important factor is always Melissa’s safety. In the midst of this, I am thankful for the great amount of empathy expressed for our story, as well as the public affirmation that the eof has a definite pattern in the human wreckage they leave behind. I know this from close insiders and even Jessica’s ex. However, I am also concerned that in many instances, the smear campaign deflects from the very simple fact that our story is real, and can never be excused by a campaign to “embarrass” the victims involved. Melissa and I were very greatly effected by the trauma of physical and emotional abuse that was imposed on us by Jessica and Diego. I have volunteered a lot of very personal and painful information which the public was never entitled to know. I have stated that the events which have harmed me not only happened well after the EOF assumed full and direct control of Melissa’s life, but that each instance was directly related to specific and vicious attacks that were made to deflect my efforts to empower her safe return. It has been a very ugly and costly battle. It has been fought in the name of unconditional love and human value. The insidious accusations they made in an effort to silence me were completely dismissed in the court of law, and I emerged an advocate for victims of domestic abuse. My deliberate mischaracterization by the EOF is incredibly hypocritical and shameful in a world where victims of domestic violence are very real and the crime no laughing … Continue reading

More Photos From Tuesday’s Flight

A cash reward is being offered for evidence and testimony in the ongoing investigation to bring a civil defamation lawsuit intended by Steven Sohlstrom on the defendants collectively referred to as Orange Bus Group (Nancy Dyson, Jason Jaques, and Brian Hurd) and the now disbanded EOF cult (Jessica Schab and Diego Fontanive). The latter ran a criminal cult based overseas that is now acknowledged as a fraud with myself and my former fiance being directly victims. The fiance was entrapped in the fraud and overseas for over 4 years but has since escaped and is  now in process of detailing the fraud and manipulation imposed on her and costing far more than her life savings. There was an international effort with myself in the direct line of fire to go after this cult and expose them. It is internationally recognized that there was a massive effort of public retaliation based on completely false narratives, malicious libel and defamation. This very dramatic case also involves a misstep by local police to maliciously prosecute the defendant on behalf of the foreign based cult in an attempt to silence a documentary produced to expose them. The resulting situation created by local police (who have the power and authority to lie to and manipulate a witness if they believe it will strengthen their case) may have resulted in furthering the ongoing exploitation, fear and confusion in the cult victim at a critical juncture in the case. It was more than just negligence. This  only reinforced the false narrative and the cult’s ability to further their criminal fraud, emotional harm and exploitation of the victim. The sloppiest of police work was employed and when the case was dismissed, even attempts to further the vendetta and manipulate the witness were reported. It is hoped this event will draw the attention of the FBI as it was entirely unethical and perhaps illegal to prosecute this case, and engage in a vendetta post-dismissal. This story will certainly be more broadly publicized in forthcoming media (including a book) and the ongoing investigation. The accused, Nancy Dyson, Jason Jaques, and Brian Hurd locally and actively participated in this known defamation on behalf of the cult and were very aggressively warned against it. On 1/1/2017 there was an  attempt by myself to press charges for criminal stalking and harassment with clear intent to harm. This stalking, harassment and menacing activity was in part waged from at least 4 fake Facebook pages and invasion of my personal web locations in spite of clear warnings to stop. It escalated to direct threats of violence and created a state of fear with nowhere safe to go in my own city. Of course the police ignoring it only emboldened the stalking and threat of violence. Nancy was a known participant and eventually engaged in obstruction attempts by planting false and misleading statements to entice local police in an attempt to backtrack from the situation. The cover-up is sometimes worse than the crime. The resulting situation … Continue reading

On-Set With Elizabeth Allen, Director of “Ramona And Beezus”

  Steven’s Facebook Hoversled Page +   In April, 2009, I boarded an Alaska Airlines jet with a strange looking package bound in holiday wrap. It was extremely fragile, and a large, odd shape that would not fit well in the overhead compartment…”How is this going to work”, I wondered? I need to get this package with me to Vancouver, BC. The solution to getting my unusual bundle on the plane was to ask to put it in the forward closet of the aircraft, and away we flew.        My first stop was Seattle, where the bundle was carefully unwrapped and the contents assembled with dozens of smaller parts. The item was actually a small airplane: the Mynah Bird. It was an RC photo aircraft with a forward looking HD view, and it was enroute to the set of Elizabeth Allen’s latest theatrical feature; Ramona and Beezus with the mission of grabbing some aerial video and background plates for a special effects sequence for the movie. I had spent the last week designing and building the airplane and equiping it with an expensive new camera. The mission wasn’t an official part of the studio production, but an experiment, and an opportunity to do something completely amazing and maybe even historic.        The prospect of building an airplane to get shots for a movie was not something that happened overnight. I have had the opportunity to know Elizabeth Allen since her years as a film student at USC Cinema, where I assisted her on a handful of student productions. It was a completely fortunate event for me to meet and get to know Liz, because she was an extremely ambitious and visionary student with a lot of already well established mentors. I was just a guy from Minnesota with a lot of free time and aspirations to work in film as well, so we made a good team in the moment. After my stay, I returned to Minnesota to work and save money for what I hoped would be my eventual return to Los Angeles.          Even after returning to Minnesota, I ventured back to L.A. several times to help Liz on a couple of movies, and at times just to catch up. Liz was always such a gracious host. On my next return trip, I worked on her first 35mm short film where I experienced the thrill of learning how to load a Panavision film magazine from one of the camera assistants. Being on-set is great, but I think it was the work leading up to production that is so interesting to be a part of; driving around Hollywood with Liz to do important things like pick up the film “short ends” (leftover film rolls from studio productions), tech scouting locations and meeting important people on the crew like the Director of Photography, etc. But it seemed like Liz always had important people around her, experienced talent that already had professional movie credits, and casts that included real stars and people that we all recognize from film and television.          The … Continue reading

From Unicorns And Aliens To Mental Health Counseling: A Convenience Couple’s Journey Of Self Manipulation

My name is Steve/n and I accepted Jessica Schab’s challenge to research the EOF Project further…that is as if my own direct experience wouldn’t have been enough to be well informed of their destructive lunacy. Here is my broader impression and interpretation of Jessica and Diego’s EOF project based on my own personal experience with them, the confusing vision statement from their website, a few of their YouTube interviews, and the inclusion of some testimonials also found on the website. The challenge came as a result of a true-life documentary I made called “Living in Fear” that I guess focused too much on us (the victims) and not enough on “them” (Jessica and Diego). I acknowledge the sensitivity of their egos and I will work my best here to amend the balance of our story to allow for more face time to Jessica and Diego. Keep in mind that my voice as a victim and “Living in Fear” was nearly silenced by false and weak legal actions, but when I finally did release it,  I did so of necessity to protect myself from their ongoing very serious and defamatory attacks…and that only happened many months after a leaked version of the film was released by the other victim in our love story. At that time, “Living in Fear” had about 12 views. Today the film has sped past the 3000 views mark and has resulted in a thorough exposure and ongoing dialogue concerning Jessica and Diego’s alleged crimes. I am far from alone in my dislike for these rascals as you can discover in the opinions of others scattered about the web. ATTN: Jessica, to quote one of my favorite lines from a movie starring a much better known cult member named Tom Cruise; “Remember…..you wanted this.” (Jessica has had ample opportunity to diplomatically resolve our situation and I have a well established personal reputation as a peace seeker… For some reason that just doesn’t work for Jessica’s narrative at this moment.) Let’s face it, especially  under the circumstances, I’ve probably been a little bit too nice. Keep in mind, I’m still doing my best to protect the other victim- and not everyone is appreciative of the unconditional love and forgiveness I’ve been oozing about the internet. People wonder how long I will keep excusing her actions and protecting her identity. Some days I wonder too. Let’s get started. First of all, I stand by my statement that the EOF project is a sham, and at a moral and academic level far worse. They have recently scrambled to evolve from their past failure in Bali (and admittedly harmful failure according to Jessica Schab), and are currently embarking on a new and more spectacular failure in Portugal. The EOF project is simply an attempt to rebrand Jessica and Diego’s business of “how can I make my clients emotionally dependent and keep them buying my expensive subscriptions to further nonsense”. Nothing new, right? When they previously introduced themselves as a convenience couple … Continue reading
