IT STARTS WITH AN ENDLESS PASSION FOR GOD, FOR DISCOVERY, FOR PEOPLE, FOR LIFE...
In the Beginning God created…” (Genesis 1:1) With those 5 simple words opens the Story of all Stories, and it all begins with a God who creates. He could have chosen to reveal Himself in any number of ways, but His act of creating is highlighted first. We human beings, created in the image of our Creator, are born creators. To create, in its simplest form, is to bring into existence. He brought forth the time and space continuum out of no prior existing material; we work from pre-existing material. Through skill and wisdom something new is brought forth. For the Christian, our acts of creating imitate His, reflecting that which is true, good and beautiful, virtues all tracing back to their fountainhead, God.
Stories are powerful! They delight, inspire, challenge and move us emotionally. They communicate truth. No matter what theme or genre, we have a worldview that provides a strong foundation for an endless number of stories, ideas, images and themes. Which brings us to movies, one of the premiere art forms in the world, combining visual imagery with spoken word and complementary music. A well made movie is an absolute delight. But this doesn’t happen by accident. Movies that will stand the test of time are the result of skilled craftsmen collaborating around a unified vision of an excellent story.
