Orlando Tribute – #ForThe49 (Video)

Orlando Tribute – #ForThe49 (Video)

Yesterday marked the one month anniversary of the Orlando shootings at Pulse night club. That was a heart-wrenching week of questions, grief, and community. It also reminded us of why this film is important. Here in Lakeland (45 minutes from Orlando), a bunch of us...

Orlando has Ignited a Fire

Orlando has Ignited a Fire

Dear friends, The past few weeks have been heartbreaking. Actually, that word is simply not strong enough. I don't think our language has the word for it. So much loss, and fear, and ignorance, and LOVE. I have hesitated to post since because I didn't want to seem I...

Casting Is Underway

Casting Is Underway

So much awesome insanity! I've been busy with scheduling and location scouting and fundraising (you can still donate/invest here) - and now it's time for the super-fun part: CASTING! We've put the character breakdown out on breakdown services here. (We've already had...

Thanks to our backers we donated $1,000 to Zebra Youth Foundation

What a great day! I took a break from the pre-production madness of character breakdowns and fundraising efforts to deliver the promised $1,000 donation to Zebra Youth Foundation in Orlando. I first met the great staff of Zebra a few months before I wrote the...

Production Date Set!

Production Date Set!

Yes, I finally did it! I set a date! Production of At the End of the Day will begin on Monday, January 18, 2016! And yes, that's two days before my birthday. This means (when all goes as planned) I will celebrate my 36th birthday on the set of my first feature film!...

Why is a Straight, Christian Guy Making a Film About LGBT People?

Why is a Straight, Christian Guy Making a Film About LGBT People?

Why is a straight, Christian guy making a film about LGBT people? The most heartbreaking truth is that 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBT. And their homeless because their families, mainly religious, have kicked them out of their home. Rejecting them for some...

I Don’t Have Pride In My Faith

I Don’t Have Pride In My Faith

This weekend I had the honor of being one of the speakers at the "Pride in Faith" worship gathering, capping off "Polk Pride" my rather conservative county's first ever pride event! Here's what I said: I am grossly under-qualified to speak today about pride in faith....

What I’ve Learned Becoming A Christian LGBTQ Ally

What I’ve Learned Becoming A Christian LGBTQ Ally

It there's a lot to learn becoming a Christian LGBTQ ally. There are new phrases. Things you can’t say. Things you need to say. There are gender pronouns to learn. There are terms you need to know. Old terms you should avoid. There are questions you should ask....

Tonight I Kick Fear In The Face

Tonight I Kick Fear In The Face

This is the day! This is the day I don't let fear win. Over the past year, I've done a lot of things that I was afraid of: saying out loud I want to make a feature length film, saying out loud I'm an LGBT ally, making my film about LGBT tensions, writing that...

Why I Ask The Questions

Why I Ask The Questions

In Episode 7 of the At The End Of The Day Podcast, Tim and I discussed the six scriptures that talk about homosexuality. It was a conversation we knew we looked forward to for a while, in large part because our audience is Christians who are re-thinking their theology...

Adventures in Fundraising Land

Adventures in Fundraising Land

I just realized it's been over a month since I've given any update on the film development (though I have been staying busy on the podcast). This is the joy of fundraising. Things slow down quite a bit. For the past 10 months I have been able to move the film forward....
