I’m often approached by parents of children and teens worried because their children are wanting to break into the entertainment industry. The parents wonder if it’s possible to maintain Christian values while working in a very secular industry. I guide them as best as I can, but now I’m excited to be able to share Jeannie Garcia’s first hand account of the struggles she faced as a professional model and actress and how she ultimately dealt with it.
Terri Minton is one busy lady. She stumbled into acting twenty years ago and has since accumulated a long list of credits including Summer Snow, A Horse for Summer, Heaven Bound, and Saved by Grace. You can catch her as Beth Nimmo, Rachel Scott’s mom, in I’m Not Ashamed, releasing this weekend to theaters across the country.
Back when I was in college I worked at a local department store and got to do the in store announcements promoting sale items for the week. I loved it, and ever since have had a fascination with voice over work. I have a great respect for voice over artists, so I was excited to be introduced to Nicole Fazio, who not only is a successful VO herself, but teaches others as well. While you may not recognize her name or face, you’re sure to recognize her voice from her national commercials for cars, beauty products, and more.
Tamara Woods is a Pennsylvania-based stage and film actress. She’s also one of the many volunteers for The Narrow Way Film Festival, and I was hoping to get to meet her last weekend, but our paths didn’t quite cross. Tamara is a fascinating young woman using her artistic gifts wherever God calls her including a US military base in Kuwait.
I first met filmmaker Lynn Moody at the Alethia Truth Awards, got better acquainted at the GloryReelz Christian Film Festival, and now our films will both be screening at The Narrow Way Film Festival. Sisters is Lynn’s first feature and she jumped in headfirst, taking on most of the behind the scenes filmmaking roles. Here she gives us an inside look at all the preparation that went into making the movie.
GloryReelz Christian Film Festival takes place two weeks from now. Have you registered yet? The day promises to be a great film event with helpful workshops in the morning, quality films in the afternoon, and fellowship lunch sandwiched between. One of the workshops available to attend is Jamie Lee Smith’s “Succeeding as a Woman in the Industry”. Jamie Lee started in the music industry, worked in Hollywood, now runs her own production company ,and teaches filmmaking.
