Announcing the next film project

Well - *takes deep breath* - I guess it's official. My next independant film project will be Regina Doman's "The Shadow of the Bear."

Regina has graciously given me the permission to do what we are currently terming a "student film." She will overseeing and approving many aspects of the production to assure that it remains true to her story.

I am so grateful to Regina for giving me this opportunity, for the actors who have already agreed to come on board this project, and to God for opening the doors to make this happen. This is the one film above all others that I wanted to make- but I never dreamed that I wouldn't have to wait decades to see it happen.

Please pray for all of us involved in the production as we move forwards. I believe that we can do great things with this film- but only with God's help. There are still many obstacles to overcome and many difficulties to work through.

I will be starting another blog in the next few weeks to specifically chronicle the progress of the film. Stay tuned!

Ooooo cool! Are you going to travel to New York (or wherever it's set) to film it? (I'm guessing that's a "no".)
It looks like we're not going to be able to get together with you guys this summer, which is a huge bummer for all of us. It's just been a crazy summer. Max has his graduation party next year, so we'll definitely see you then. Maybe Christmas break???
