“Don't be satisfied with just pumping blood.” - Tony Campolo

For those of you who know my work, you can see that I am passionate about capturing the beautiful humanity and distilled wisdom of our ageing living legacies.

You can see this in my documentary film with Author, Pastor, Poet Eugene and his wife Jan Peterson: “Peterson: In-Between the Man and the Message” (NavPress commissioned in 2016)  – CLICK HERE 

As well as in my film “Phyllis” about the life of Author, Poet, Theologian Phyllis Tickle and her husband Sam (a self-funded collaboration with Tiny Ark Originals 2015) – CLICK HERE

The DREAM: 

Now, I am endeavouring to do the same with Tony Campolo. Tony Campolo is an American sociologist, pastor, author, public speaker and former spiritual advisor to U.S. President Bill Clinton. Known primarily for his work with Red Letter Christians, and the Campolo Centre as well as authoring over 40 books including, “Red Letter Revolution: What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said?” and “Following Jesus Without Embarrassing God”.

The 14 minute documentary “Tony Campolo: Divine Dissatisfaction” will go beyond the what and how of his literary and life accomplishments and embrace the why. Why does he do what he does? Why does he continue to articulate his inner life? Why does he continue to challenge the status quo even when it’s uncomfortable for others and possibly himself? Why does all of this still matter to him?

This crowd sourced and self-funded film will endeavour to capture intimate glimpses of Tony’s life in all of its profundities and humanities at his home and in his community in Philadelphia.

The ASK: 

 Will you partner with us?

My wife, Alex and I are funding 50% of the costs and are looking for your help to raise the remaining 50%: $16750 (€15000)

The permissions are all granted and the film is just waiting to be made.

Will you join us in capturing a legacy to inspire future generations?

Risks and challenges

Thankfully, in practical terms, the challenges of connecting with Tony Campolo, traveling to him and working with him to make this documentary have been overcome and we're ready to move forward.

As with any interview, the beauty and risk of it is that it can't be scripted. Though this makes it a little unpredictable, I find this exciting and am really proud of similar projects that I have completed with Eugene Peterson and Phyllis Tickle.

Having worked consistently with Tiny Ark over the last few years on a huge variety of film projects, we have learnt to deal with the unexpected challenges that arise.

After premiering my film of Eugene Peterson last month in Colorado Springs, I am eager to start into a new project and continue the momentum that has been generated. The project doesn't require approval or premarket review to be released.
