Featured Film:
Time Changer

Today's featured film is Time Changer, a full-length movie made by Rich Christiano, an independent christian filmmaker.

The film is about a man named Russell Carlisle, who has just finished writing a manuscript for a theological book. It is about to get a unanimous endorsement from the board members at Grace Bible Seminary until his colleague, Dr. Norris Anderson, has a "difficulty with something.”
Dr. Anderson believes what Carlisle has written could greatly affect future generations.  But Carlisle won't listen to reason. So, using a secret time machine, Anderson sends Carlisle over 100 years into the future, offering him a glimpse of where his beliefs will lead.
Here's a trailer: 

You can buy a DVD of Time Changer here.

Featured Film:
The Widow's Might

Today's featured film is The Widow's Might, a full-length movie made by Heumoore Productions, a filmmaking company started by homeschool graduates.  This film won the Jubilee Award, a $101,000 grand prize, in the 2009 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF), up against competitors such as Fireproof, and The Secrets of Johnathon Sperry.  

The film is about two aspiring filmmakers who, upon learning of the plight of a nearby widow about to lose her home through outrageous and unjust property taxes, do what they do best: make a film to help.
Through trials, public smears, and laughs, this tale will capture your heart.
Here's a trailer:

Want a RED? Now is the time to consider a SCARLET

Most of you out there have probably heard of RED Digital Cinema, the leader in 4K and 5K video devices. As recently as within the past three weeks, RED cameras had been completely beyond the reach of anyone who didn't have $10,000 lying around (and that's just for the camera body, no lenses or any other equipment).  But on November 1st, RED announced that they were dropping their prices.

(Unfortunately, the RED ONE has sold out as of November 16th)
 So, if any of you out there have had some thousands you've been sitting on, or an older RED, now may be the time to upgrade your equipment.
