Just a couple years ago, with the help of many supportive people, a few pennies, a movie star (Kevin Sorbo), and an amazingly talented and artistic group of friends, the very first film I ever wrote was brought to life into a full length, honest to goodness movie.
It was a modern retelling of the Prodigal Son story Jesus told, I wanted to tell that story, because stories are powerful, and the ones Jesus told are relevant more than ever today.
Fast forward a year after the movie came out; tens of thousands of people from around the country and world have viewed the film, either picking it up at their local store or watching it in their home on Netflix, each one confronted with the beauty of Jesus’ powerful story. And me knowing I couldn’t stop now.
So, now in 2017, God has put a new film on my heart-- A modern day retelling of the Good Samaritan.
I believe stories are powerful, especially the ones that came from the heart and mouth of Jesus. After having a modest film be taken around the world and touch thousands, having people from all walks of life write me letter after letter telling me their stories, thankful for a film that portrayed the Bible’s truth in a way that connected to them or someone they loved, I’m more passionate than ever about bringing truly good stories to life on screen.
This new film about the Good Samaritan, I believe, is more relevant than ever before. The story explores what it really means to follow God, and what it really looks like to ‘love our neighbor’. It’s a story that this generation needs to hear, and it’s a story I need your help to bring to life.
Like the last film, we have an amazing script, an amazing director, an awesome cast, and even a new surprise Oscar Nominated star making an appearance!
But with everything beautiful, it has a cost, but it’s a cost I think is worth it to share important messages to a world in need.
We will need funds for food, crew, equipment, and actors. All necessary elements to a good film. But the fun part is, when you help us out, you get to be apart of the story coming to life, by choosing from our tiers of what reward you want.
We have everything from your own signed copy of the film, to actually grabbing a real speaking part in the film with your name in the credits and everything! But at the end of the day the reward is being able to be apart of a movement that will bring Jesus’ words to life in a way that will connect and inspire a generation that needs to hear it….
So, thank you for visiting our project, and I am so honored that you would consider joining this team working to bring Jesus’ classic, true, and life-changing story to life. We have 40 days to reach our goal, but with your help and God's leading we can do it!
