July 2018:

In May 2018 I again produced a short film for the 168 Film Project. This year, however, I traveled to Los Angeles to produce it there. 

We had a GREAT team. Had a fun adventure filming it. Got it turned in by tthe deadline. (This is a speed film-making event. Teams all over the word get 168 hours to make a film!)

And the RESULT?! Our film has been nominated for FIFTEEN awards!!!

Yeah, you read that right. 15 award nominations! You can see the list below. We will learn who wins which categories at the 168 Film Festival on August 25th, 2018.

Stay tuned...

Assigned verse! We were to base our story on: 

2 Corinthians 10:3-4:

 

"For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds."
