Have you been eager to be on a film-set again? Do you wish you could learn more about the movie-making experience? Join us this summer for award-winning short film director Katie Travis-Plaisted's Film Workshop. We will be venturing through breaking down a screenplay, creating a coverage plan, entering the crew roles for a short film production, and more!
Our film workshops are about being a training ground for filmmakers currently in or entering the film industry by giving them the "On-Set" experience that they need, in order to create quality entertainment that proclaims truth and provide a safe, uplifting set environment for cast and crew. Every trainee who registers will be assigned to places on the filming crew according to their top three position preferences. Depending on the number of trainees some positions may rotate between trainees over the three filming blocks. At the end everyone involved will receive a copy of the finished short film and will be able to add it to their resume of experience. Sign up today to reserve your spot on this summer's crew!

Inspired by the true story recorded in 1 Kings 18, GOD OF ALL TIME is set in a futuristic dystopia under the religious rule of Ashna the Goddess of Time and her mouthpiece the Czar. A man on the run because of his illegal faith in the LORD must face the powerful Czar and prove that the LORD is the true God or else die.
