About this project
*Update* Check out the updates tab for a sneak peek of footage we shot for the funeral scene in Memories and Blessings.
We here at All4Him Films are extremely excited about this project and we hope to get you excited to.
Memories and Blessings is the story of Steven Whitmore, who experiences tragedy when his wife is killed in a car accident. With his life in a sudden tailspin Steven finds an old box filled with memorabilia from the life he and Samantha, his wife, had spent together. He also finds a scrap book with the word Memories printed on the front. We watch as Steven and Samantha’s past unfolds before our eyes and we see what it means to be truly blessed, and how the only way to truly deal with tragedy is through the power of Jesus Christ.
The majority of the film takes place within this book of memories as Steven recalls how he met his wife and the roller-coaster ride they have experience together. The primary theme of the film is that even though tragedy is a terrible thing, God can still work through it and carry us along the way.
The story stems in part from a tragedy my family suffered about a year and a half ago when my younger brother’s car went of the road on an extremely rainy night and he was killed. Pieces of the story are inspired by that situation, not so much the actual events but how God used it and the strength He gave to both of my parents.
Filming has already partially started on Memories and Blessings and so far everything is going great. Except one thing. We are still short of our budget to complete the project. From props and costumes to take us back to the 70's, feeding our cast a crew, and all of the site rentals and fees we are going to need. We are $10,000 short of our needed budget.
As I said above the funds brought in here on Kickstarter will go towards:
- transforming a house and church to look like the 70's as well as the clothing and car rentals we will need to sell the part of the story.
- The feeding of our cast and crew (Around 25 people when it's all said and done). Since they are all volunteering their time for this project we want to be able to say thanks with a meal and plenty of water each day of filming.
- Kessler Pocket Jib
- Kessler Pocket Dolly
The funds will also cover other various things:
- Location Fee's (Example - We need to pay a fee to use the school we are filming in)
- Gas for Vehicles
- Sound and Music

We appreciate the time you have taken to read our post, and we hope you will consider helping us out with either your financial support or by sharing this campaign with friends and family.
We look forward to seeing what God will do through all of you to make this film happen.
Thanks and God Bless.
