The Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers Camp

I got to reprise my role of the Slave Trader from Polycarp for this intro
to Zack Lawrence's review of the film.

I just got back from a great two weeks at the Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers Camp, where we produced five short films, got an IMDb credit for all of our students when they performed in an opening sequence for film instructor Zack Lawrence's Indy Christian Review, and coached them all in auditions for an upcoming feature film. To make the most of our time together we uploaded teaching modules the students watched in advance so they could hit the ground running. Once on site we made the whole process as close to professional production as possibly, while teaching principles along the way.

We also had Emmy Award-winning writer John Fornof with us for a few days. He's directed actors for his radio dramas who have performed in Narnia, The Lord of the Rings and Downton Abbey, and he directed our students on voice-over pieces. 

Before Film Camp began we had a conference call with Bev Holloway. She fielded questions and shared from her wealth of experience casting nearly 60 feature films.

During both weeks of Film Camp actor/filmmaker/casting director Rebekah Cook gave an over-the-phone workshop on creating an actor website. She shared some outstanding insights, and then Zack and Ken Lawrence gave a student-only offer to create their sites for an incredibly reasonable rate.

Pray about joining us next year:
