Christian Films Got 99 Problems and a Blockbuster Ain’t One
Fasten your seat belts, Film Nerds! It’s about to get real! If we are to launch into a new era, a Christian Film Renaissance, we need to take a good hard look at where we are right now. The Christian Film scene today. Kind of like another time in history we stood at a crossroads. Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation when he nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the church in 1517 which criticized central aspects of the Catholic Church’s teachings. I’ve done Luthie baby four better. A 99-Theses if you will. 99 Reasons why your Christian Film doesn’t ...
The Art of Visual Storytelling TOUR
I first met Alex Buono when he came through Living Arts College where I was teaching at the time. He had come to razzle-dazzle us with a Canon Filmmaker Workshop for our Film Students.

The restraining order was SO worth it! Anyway, I judge Workshops the same way I judge Sermons -- by how many notes I'm able to take during the lectures. And how many LOLs there are. But ...
Djesus Uncrossed: Hilarity or Blasphemy?
Fewer and fewer people have been watching "Saturday Night Live" (SNL) these days it seems. With the recent exit (well, last year) of Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig*, it's pretty much become the Seth Meyers show surrounded by 27 people you've never heard of but kinda remind you of funny high school friends you had once. Seriously, have you seen how Weekend Update has taken up more and more screen real estate? Pretty soon this thing will be all Anchor and no Boat, to sling a pun and coin a phrase all at once cause I'm word-wise thanks to meh ...
Top 10 Signs that J.J. Abrams is NOT ready for Star Wars
Unsettling news I read yesterday in the New York Times that Disney has tapped J. J. Abrams to helm the next Star Wars: Episode Awesome...er...I mean 7. And so I want to get the facts out there before the ink dries on any contracts and there may be time to reconsider! Now I realize this comes on the heels of my bold statement that virtually anyone in Hollywood, even the Production Assistant whose job it is to get the coffee for the guy who makes the copies for the Office Secretary to the Executive Assistant of the Studio Chief...even THAT guy ...
The Directors: Full Uncensored Interview
Filmmakers, I have unearthed for you this ah-MAZE-ing video interview conducted by The Hollywood Reporter. It's a full uncensored interview with Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained), David. O Russell (Silver Linings Playbook), Ben Affleck (Argo), Ang Lee (Life of Pi), Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) and Gus Van Sant (Promised Land). These are some Film Maestros and Auteurs just shootin' the breeze and coming clean about some of the ups and downs of their jobs. And it's about an hour long and worth every second. Like, halfway through, you find yourself asking, "Who is Ben Affleck texting? Dude! You're on-camera! Stay in the moment!" Lots of gold nuggets in here for everyone, so enjoy... ###
