2015 has been an amazing year with Faith Flix. 108 posts covered both well known and lesser known individuals in the industry as well as movies, festivals, events, companies, and anything else related to independent faith-based films. Added to previous year’s posts we had a total of 383 articles. Word is getting out about Faith Flix. We had visitors to the blog from 154 different countries.
I’m excited to introduce a new series of articles where I share advice from award winning writers, directors, producers, editors, cinematographers, and other filmmaking individuals. We kick off with four screenwriters offering the best advice they ever received. Here’s what Doc Benson, Keith Perna, Anthony Hackett, and Sean Paul Murphy had to say.
I had never heard of Sean Paul Murphy until earlier this year when I received a copy of his memoir. I’m not a big fan of memoirs, but i fell in love with Sean’s easygoing, conversational style of writing. Then I started looking into his other work and discovered he was the writer and/or editor of many of my favorite movies. He’s just an all around interesting guy and I’m excited to get to interview him and learn even more about his career.
The Promise: Or, the Pros and Cons of Talking With God is a memoir. I don’t believe I’ve ever read a memoir before, but I was familiar with several of Sean Paul Murphy’s films and liked them, plus I’m a big fan of prayer, so I took advantage of the offer to get an advance copy of the book to review. I’m glad I did.
