First Lady – Movie Review

From the moment I learned that First Lady was coming to Middle Tennessee, I knew what my Valentine's plans would be - attending a matinee screening of the movie then heading over to Chuy's for our date night meal. Unfortunately, Fred and I have been sick for the past week, so I was afraid it…

Michael Warren – Production Assistant

Michael Warren at studio

I met Michael Warren years ago when he was a part of our cast for The Good Book. He brought his grandfather along so he wouldn't have to travel alone, and as we were all sitting around after supper one night, we learned that his grandfather had been a Bible smuggler. So, being filmmakers, we…

NRB 2018 in Pictures

Sharon Wilharm interviews author Sue McGray at NRB 2018

I love the National Religious Broadcasters Convention! There is nothing quite like the energy that comes when thousands of Christians from around the world converge on a beautiful venue and talk about how to spread the gospel in new and exciting ways. This year had just an incredible lineup of speakers kicking off with Vice…

Faith, Family, Film: A Teacher’s Trek

Faith Family Film

I've been anxiously waiting for this book by Dr. Fred Eichelman, and as soon as the mailman delivered it yesterday, I eagerly delved in. Fifty pages later I put it down long enough to cook supper then continued my reading. It's a who's who collection of behind the scenes stories of industry folks like Elizabeth…

International Christian Film Festival

With all the PROVIDENCE movie screenings we've got going on, we were unable to attend this year's International Christian Film Festival so Juli Tapken went in our place. Here's her guest blog about her experience.  If you are a newbie to film festivals like I am, the International Christian Film Festival is a great one…

Providence Theatrical Release – In Pictures

Providence movie released in seven cities on Friday, February 12. As part of the release, we had Q and A sessions at each of the theaters. It was a whirlwind of a weekend to say the least. The movie is still showing, but we're finally home and able to catch our breath long enough to…

Loran Bolding – Actress

I was first introduced to Loran Bolding from last year's International Christian Film Festival.  Jenn Gotzon represented us at the festival and kept us abreast of all that was going on. Only her phone battery went dead during the awards ceremony, so Loran graciously stepped in and sent us photos of Jenn receiving The Good…

Acting Tips From Award Winning Actors

I am always practicing, always rehearsing, always observing - whether I'm actively working on a role or not. I study the work of actors I admire and try to figure out and emulate how they make the magic, how they create the illusion that they're not just playing a part or reading lines, but actually make me believe they are the characters they are portraying.

Point North Tidings – With Dr. Fred Eichleman

Two years ago we had a dilemma. We had to choose between attending a film festival where our movie Flowers for Fannie was up for an award, a local screenwriting conference, or an arts conference in Roanoke, Virginia. We chose the arts conference and it turned out to be a life changing event. It was…

Providence Filming Days 5, 6, and 7

We're at the halfway mark now. We've filmed all the Adult Rachel and Adult Mitchell scenes, a few Teen Rachel scenes and a few Young Rachel scenes. It's been some pretty busy weekends made more complicated by the fact that I had a brilliant idea to tweak the script a bit and give it a…
