  1. Michael Maurice says:

    I am a professional actor in the area and also a christian. I looked at your script and my first thought is: If you want to be taken seriously and you are looking to produce a professional product, then you need to start with a professional script in a script format. What you have on your website looks amateurish and highschoolish at best. What I read gives me the impression of a “Preaching to the choir,” type of script. I don’t know what audience demographic you had in mind when you wrote it, but this is not a script that will sway anyone to your side, just enlist a hearty “Amen,” from the already convinced… Just my opinion, take it for what it is worth. Wish you well with your endeavor.

  2. Clemence says:

    I agree with Michael Maurice above. Also, I am a proud Christian liberal, and I see this script as making hostile generalizations of other political groups from the right wing. Nonetheless I am grateful that your production team is bringing in opportunities for Michigan workers. Hope all goes well.

  3. Andrew says:

    You do realize that everything about this movie is historically inaccurate, right? The founders wanted no part of Christianity, least of all in our government. They themselves were not Christians. Most of them were deists, others agnostics. This is just pathetic.

  4. Veronica mallet says:

    I’m am interested in playing Patricia. I trully believe that I can play that role. I have never done any acting yet, but look forward in doing so.

  5. Cody says:

    I really believe I could play the part of Jesus. Everyone I meet compares me to Jesus because of my tall (6’6″) athletic stature, beard, and shoulder length lighbrown hair. I’m a loving christian with a drive to get into the entertainment industry.

  6. Sean Mason says:

    I have been taken advantage of many times by individuals who claim themselves to be Christian film makers. i for one am not here for money or fame but only to spread the glory of the lord to the lost and broken. I do not care about riches, fame, nor glory but want to impact those who know nothing of God. If this is a serious offer, let me know.
