THE WORLD NEEDS
STORIES OF GOODNESS, TRUTH & BEAUTY
Respect local culture. Find the stories God has prepared.
MORE THAN EVER
THE WORLD IS SHAPED BY MEDIA
WE ARE PARTNERING
WITH NEW TALENT ON OUR DOORSTEP
These creative partnerships will create "best in market media" in emerging
media markets around the world.
There are one million first and second generation immigrants in Minnesota.
That is talent from around the globe.
TO RAISE UP THE NEXT GENERATION OF MEDIA CREATORS
These creators will lead their cultures in media quality,
Have an outsized impact in markets that aren't saturated with content.
They will grow in skill as their market grows in quality (compare Bollywood movies from 20 years ago to today's extravaganzas) and potentially impact their cultures for decades.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR A BASE OUTSIDE, BUT NEAR THE TWIN CITIES
Where we can host interns.
Build a live/work community with production capacity.
Create systems of sustainability that can weather societal disruptions.
If not now, then when?
Current technologies give us unprecedented tools for media creation and distribution. This generation has been uniquely prepared to communicate through media. And we have experienced masters in our midst ready to equip and mentor them.
A media production training base east of the Twin Cities creating a constant flow of fresh content.
A dedicated fund to help underwrite production costs and accelerate new projects.
A worldwide network of creators making media for the nations.
An international brain trust working to understand the foundational stories of each culture and create media that speaks to the heart.
A dedication to creating and improving until we are among the best.
Hearts and gifts surrendered to Jesus, dependent on the Holy Spirit, loved by and loving the Father.
We are already growing a network of creators and media related contacts around the world.
IT IS TIME TO EQUIP THE STORYTELLERS
But, apart from a small amount of inspirational entertainment created for the "church market,"
we are woefully neglecting the arts and their impact.
WHAT IS AT STAKE?
WHO WILL TELL THE STORY FOR THIS GENERATION?
A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY - ON OUR DOORSTEP
The world is shaped by media.
Let's equip the next generation of international filmmakers.
The Inklings, which included C.S.Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien
Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
