Little Women – Movie Giveaway

I've always loved Little Women, so I was pretty excited when I found out about the new movie release coming out and the invitation to review it. In my excitement to sign up, though, I totally missed that it was a modern-day retelling. Then I watched the trailer, and wow! I can't wait to watch it.…

Guideposts Writing Course – Review

I remember years ago attending a writing conference where one of the attendees had just returned from the Guideposts Writers Workshop. She wasn't one of the speakers, but everyone swarmed around her, wanting to hear her story, how she got picked to attend, and what she learned while she was there. I was fascinated as…

Hiding Places – Music Review

I love discovering new musical talent, especially anyone with a vintage sound, so I was excited to have the opportunity to review Tori Kelly's new CD, Hiding Places. Tori Kelly was the 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist. She's an L.A.-based singer/ songwriter who mixes R and B with classic gospel.  She teamed up…

Seeing Green – Book Review

In the midst of our crazy movie tour schedule, I signed up to review a couple of books. What was I thinking? However, once I picked up Seeing Green by Tilly Dillehay, I knew that busy as I was, I needed to find time to read this one. The subtitle of the book is "Don't…

Christian Casting – With Founder Laura Mae

My friend Jenn Gotzon introduced me to Laura Mae when we were casting for Summer of '67.

She immediately impressed me with her professionalism and efficiency and that each of her…

Why We Need Movie Reviewers

When we first began making movies, I hated reviews. I considered movie reviewers “Filmmaker Enemy #1”. Any time we got a negative review, which was quite often in the early days, I cried, convinced the reviewer was just being mean. As we’ve continued in the industry, I’ve grown to appreciate and, yes, even love reviewers. I’ve…

Summer of ’67 Movie Tour

When making a movie, we really have no idea where it will end up. We always start with a plan, but plans change. Things don't work out the way we thought they would. Events happen that lead us in a different direction. Our Summer of '67 Movie Tour is a perfect example of God leading…

DIY Blog Tours For Indie Filmmakers

As a filmmaker who blogs, I have the advantage of observing both sides of the spectrum. As an indie filmmaker, I know the struggle of trying to promote a movie that no one's ever heard of. As a blogger, I work with PR firms and publicists to help promote movies that everyone's heard of. So…
