Browsing "Making a Film"

Lights, Camera, Action, Wait — Huh?

-6Hey there, Y’all,

Here’s my latest update. Sorry, it’s so late, but for the last few months we’ve been scurrying around and searching out actors and actresses for the film. We even checked out various directors. In the making of a film, we go through multiple processes and for me to do a feature film, it’s a learning process. My past expertise except for acting and writing has been in corporate, commercials, TV shows, and documentaries.

When God says to hurry up, it may turn out that after we finish one phase we have to wait before we begin another. It’s the waiting part that has us seemingly dragging our feet as we start a new company or, in this case, a new aspect of the film business.

The actual pre-production of the faith-based film, Abducted to Kill, would have begun in the fall of last year when the script(s) and proposal were completed. We wrote and rewrote our script and sent it in for evaluation. More rewrites and more evaluation came next. Now, we have a perfected blueprint.

Mark 9:24 “As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes.”

So where are we now? We have a promise of potential investment. We have done our blueprint over and over again and have perfected it, we have appropriate A-List actors and actresses selected and possibly a director, but there are some things we leave in the hands of others.

This is surely a learning process and someday we will be able to write a book on what we learned. In the meantime, we do continue to absorb knowledge as we wait.

Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God—those whom he has called according to his plan.

Keep praying for us to succeed in securing the funding and getting commitment letters from the main performers we’ve selected.

Thank you. Keep looking up!
