This film is about a teenager named Marcus and his friend Jack who are up to no good, stealing and getting into trouble. They think all they're doing is having fun and playing games, but in actuality, it is much worse. They both need help and they don't know it. As the story progresses, Marcus's meets a Christian classmate who introduces himself, and they become friends. He finds out that his job is to bring Marcus to God, and have him repent for what he has done. Marcus starts to change; however, when everything is about to turn around, things get bad real quick when Jack is in trouble. Marcus finds himself in the biggest predicament of his life, and must turn to God to decide what is right. 

The trailer we put together took three days and a lot of planning. We were able to shoot six chapters of the film, and they all turned out great. We discovered that shooting the trailer proved to be harder to do than actually shooting the movie. We had to cram ten minutes of film into three days. That may not seem like a lot, but it was. Each day consisted of getting up at either five or six in the morning, loading up equipment, traveling to our location, shooting for 10 hours, then going home. It was both tiresome and fun at the same time.

In order to finish the film we need at least $20,000, but our goal is $25,000. Most of the funds will go toward equipment, actors, food for the actors, props, gas, and vehicle rentals. This project will include a lot of stunts and action, including fight scenes, car chases, parkour, and police! The plan is to show this film to churches and film festivals all across the globe, making this a very big and important project.

My team and my church are very confident this project will have a far-reaching impact. We can't wait to see the final outcome! All we need is your support!

Risks and challenges

The biggest problems we will face are schedules and weather. Since most of the scenes will be shot outside, we will have to be sure the weather permits – so that nobody is too cold, especially the actors. Schedules will also be a challenge because most of the crew is volunteer and just helping out. My own personal schedule is also a challenge, since I have other video projects going on that I need to focus on as well. How we plan to tackle these challenges is a lot of preproduction. By preproduction I mean meeting with everyone and creating schedules that fit everybody. We will talk about different scenarios and how we will approach them. If something doesn't work out, we will find out the best possible solution as fast as possible.
