“One Good Man” movie

16 September 2009 2 Comments

July 18th  and 19th I had the privilege of attending a filmmaking workshop conducted by George Escobar and the Advent Film Group at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia. The room was packed and since many had to be turned away, another workshop was conducted in August. Mr. Escobar shared his vast knowledge of the filmmaking process from start to finish. His goal is to not only make topnotch films with Christian values, but to train others in the process and raise up the next generation of Christian filmmakers. After seeing the talent and enthusiasm at this workshop, I am convinced that the future is bright and independent Christian filmmakers will soon dominate the industry. 

The tremendous success of Fireproof is revolutionizing the film world. Advent’s first film, Come What May has sold over 30,000 DVDs. The filming of their second feature film, One Good Man, is underway in Winston-Salem. This touching father-son baseball story should succeed by attracting a large audience and a theatrical release.

George Escobar has graciously offered me considerable advice and insight into marketing Marching Through Culpeper. Most recently he shared the idea of approaching Focus on the Family Radio Theater to produce an audio version. This is an idea that had never crossed my mind and of course the cost is a fraction of filming. If the radio series is successful, the groundwork would be laid for a miniseries. At the moment, this is all on a back burner, because I feel called to step forward and help Advent Films during their filming process. 

When Mr. Escobar expressed his intent to form a large prayer network during the filming and to have a prayer tent staffed by volunteers on the set, I volunteered to help. Since I have been blessed with a national weekly prayer group and we have the same vision for prayer during the filming of Marching Through Culpeper, I feel it is time for Christians to unite. 

Our intent is to build an internet prayer network that grows like a tidal wave. Each day a video message will be sent from the movie set. These short videos will show different people involved with the movie and give updates and prayer requests. That means YOU can have a front row seat and be involved in making this movie. HAVE YOU EVER HELPED MAKE A MOVIE BEFORE? DO YOU BELIEVE PRAYER IS THE GREATEST FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE? 

Right NOW, this instant, CLICK HERE to sign up to receive the email videos and prayer requests. We believe God will give us a million prayer partners. Will you be one of them? Share this unique opportunity with your friends!

 On another matter, I want to pass on a message from Rod Stone. Rod has written many beautiful songs for the Marching Through Culpeper movie and you can listen to them on his blog. CLICK HERE to listen. Post your reactions! 

Dear Friends,

       I want to take a moment to share this video of my song The Prayer with you.  We are heading into troubling times and I truly believe it’s time to reconnect with the God of our Founding Fathers. Thank you for taking the time to watch it. If  you were moved by my song and/or the images, please forward it to your friends! 

 Thanks! Rod Stone

Prayer Power
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for connecting me to the Advent Film Group and George Escobar. Bless each talented person who will be involved in the filming of One Good Man. Fill them with creativity, energy, and commitment to excellence as they serve in the name of Christ.  You are gathering your army through the Internet, Your superhighway of communication. I pray that a million believers will join the prayer network for the filming of this inspiring movie on fatherhood. For you are a faithful God who always answers the prayers of your people in ways that are better than we can ever dream. Thank you for Rod Stone’s talent and wisdom. Through prayer may we as a nation return to You, the God of our Founding Fathers. In the mighty and powerful name of Jesus, the One who instructs us to ask, seek, and knock. Amen.

Thanks for all you have done to help Advent Films. We know that nothing is impossible through Christ. Thanks also for posting a link to my video and song “The Prayer”.
