sherwood pictures (a ministry of sherwood baptist church) continues their call and mission to change the world from - of all places - albany, georgia.
i don't know which scriputral theme underlies this particular ministry, but i do know that it should be matthew 19:26, in which Jesus states that "...with God, all things are possible." there is simply no other explanation for the success of their first film 'facing the giants'. it was a limited release (less than 1,000 theaters) and yet, went on to gross one hundred times its budget of $100k.
their newest film, fireproof, is going to be a wide release on 9.26.08. i am anxious to see this film and the impact it may have on the current landscape of the film industry. this is an incredible endeavor considering shoestring budgets and volunteer staff.
