John was moved as he sat with three hundred people at this conference. On the podium was a producer who was electrifying the crowd with his message. The more the producer spoke the more excited John was.
“This is our time! The world is tired of the stale, immoral, God attacking movies that are being made. There is a stirring in the land. People want truth. People want decency in their movies. People want God. This is the time for God’s scribes to write movies that show redemption, hope and love!”
John saw himself as a principal participator in this movement. Earlier this year he’d written his first screenplay based on a novel that he’d written many years ago.
“There are production companies that are getting a sense of this interest in God in movies and on television and they are producing shows for this audience but what they are producing is their own image of God. They are reducing God to their level of interpretation. They are mixing truth with lies. These productions are being used to deceive and confuse people. It’s time for truth soldiers to take the front line in media and entertainment.”
John was so inspired and on fire after that session that he went home and pulled out his screenplay. Sitting at his desk he thought about the journey that got him to this point. When he was a child the creators of Disney movies were his heroes. Every Saturday, as his brothers and sisters played outside John remained in the house watching the Disney Club and Disney movies.
When John finished high school he wanted to go to move to California and go to film school. But the summer he was supposed to leave his girlfriend told him that she was pregnant. John decided to stay home and work. He was going to be the best father to his child, better than his own father was to him.
Twenty five years and three children later John has a creative awakening.On the first day of the new year he sat down and wrote a screenplay. He hadn’t written one since he was a senior in high school. When he read in his local paper that a film makers conference was coming to his area he registered immediately.
That evening after the conference was over John knew that it was time to act. He read over the screenplay one last time. He prayed for God to send his screenplay to the right people and uploaded it to the producer’s, that spoke that afternoon, website. John was sure that this was the beginning of the creative life he was born to live.
