We create feature length films and short form films that reach a wide variety of people—from young adults to grandmothers and everyone in between. We use cinematic storytelling and creative visuals to tell stories that explore faith, forgiveness, and hope. Our aim is to use film to illustrate the Christian message, not only to spread hope and joy, but also to bring more people to the dearest of our hearts—Jesus. We strive to be a light in this dark world and to bring people to not only know Jesus, but to have a true, personal relationship with him.
