The goal of this film is quite simple - we want to make a truly funny faith-based film. Because laughter is a wonderful thing.

We believe people are hungry for classic comedies, but the majority of movies coming out today are either filthy or, if they're aimed at the Christian audience, seem to be deadly serious!

Here's what we've got...

* A script that works (we had a staged reading and the audience laughed from start to finish).

* A genuinely funny ensemble ready to go.

* A professional crew on standby.

* Investor money given by people who want to help shape and change the culture.

All we need now is a little more cash to help make this project a reality.

If you want to join our passion project, we sincerely thank you!

Risks and challenges

Every movie breaks down into two categories - concept and execution. We have the concept part handled with a funny script, the fabulous actors, and the knowledge that Christians do have a sense of humor and that they want a film that celebrates the gospel with laughter.

Of course, the real challenge comes when we try to film 8 pages a day and get the shots we want with a very tight budget.

Thankfully we have the execution part covered by having the experienced producing team of Jenni Gold and Jeff Maynard in our corner. Jeff Maynard was a formerly the Senior Vice President of Post Production for The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films, responsible for all aspects of world-wide post-production from pre-production thru delivery on more than 70 feature films including: The Reader, The Kings Speech, Nine, and The Great Debaters. Mr. Maynard is an experienced and a sought after producer with a talent for bringing films in on time and under budget. His technical knowledge and creative approach to problem solving is unsurpassed. Jenni Gold is an award winning filmmaker who is considered a triple threat in the world of entertainment. Her accomplishments have been featured in publications nationwide including: The LA Times and DGA Magazine.  Jenni’s editing and screenwriting skills serve as a foundation for her Directorial efforts which have received multiple awards and have placed her among the best in her field as a Director Member of the Directors Guild of America.   Jenni has experience producing award winning films despite extremely tight budget constraints and therefore is the perfect choice to shepherd this project. Together Jenni and Jeff will help our production to avoid the pitfalls that most low budget films face.
