Lately we have been super busy getting Second Chances prepared to be filmed. There are so many things that go into the making of a movie, including: auditioning actors, getting a good crew, storyboarding, securing locations, plus countless other things. So, please be in prayer for us as we are working on this.
Please pray that God will bring us the cast and crew that He wants us to have, that we will be able to find the right locations to film at, and that every other aspect of this project will work out to ultimately bring glory to Him, and to Him alone.

About the Blogger Recognition Award (By Jyoti)
The Blogger Recognition Award is an award given in recognition of all the hard work that goes into creating a blog. It is a way for bloggers to support, motivate and promote other bloggers who have clearly put in huge amounts of time and effort, and produced valuable content.
Bloggers are very talented people – they work hard, they promote, market, advertise, run a busy site.
They organise all kinds of activities, they encourage, motivate, interact, engage and are community orientated. It matters not if they are shy and reticent or loud and personable – each actively progressive blogger is the same – they all work hard and passionately with their blogs, they put the hours in to deliver to their audience each day a welcoming location to read, absorb, learn and have fun.
To escape the hustle bustles of city life, or the begrudgeries of boredom – they entice readers to peruse their pages to look for entertainment.
That is what the BRA celebrates.

Two Pieces of Advice I Will Give To New Bloggers – Words From a Fellow Beginner
Try to post a variety of stuff, share your favorite songs, write your own stories, share the things you love to all the world! Just try not to share too much private information, be careful to limit what you share. Try to post interesting things, constantly if possible.
Try to reply to and like all comments, visit others’ blogs, and be friendly! Even if you’re not an outgoing person, make sure you interact with your followers and your fellow bloggers. Have fun in your blogging journey! 🙂
Lee Duigon, I find it hard to express my greatest thanks for recommending me to make this blog! Thank you, Mr. Duigon, and I’m looking forward to what God has in store for me in my blogging journey.
Elijah Holston, thank you so much for being such a great blogging friend and an encouraging Brother in Christ! Also I want to thank you for being my very first follower!
SLIMJIM, pastor for the LORD, thank you so much for always commenting on my blog from the start to now. Let us all grow in the faith and in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Yep! That’s right! We’re announcing our next film!
It’s called: Second Chances
Here is the synopsis:
A family tragedy three years ago left Cameron Taylor a hardened teenage with a chip on his shoulder. In trying to escape home pressures and past nightmares, a single mistake shatters his world, leading him on a desperate search for answers.
When his mother suggests a change of scenery for the summer, Cameron reluctantly agrees, but country life holds more in store than he could have imagined. New friends—Alan and Elise—help to ease the pain of the past, but a freak accident one morning brings Cameron face-to-face with his biggest nightmare once more.
Will Cameron succumb to the tragedies of the past or have the courage to trust God and face the future?
This film is going to be feature-lenth, and is going to cost quite a bit of money to create! Please support…
1: Thank the blogger who nominated you and give a link to their site.
2: Make a post and answer the questions.
3: Nominate 5 (or more) other bloggers and notify them.
4: Create more questions for your nominees.
The questions from Elijah:
1: In what ways has your blog brought you closer to the Lord?
I think my blog made me think more about God. Sometimes the blog posts I write minister to myself. They make me think if I’m serving the Lord Jesus Christ from my heart. Also my blog has enabled me to communicate with other believers of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, something that is hard to do in a heathen country like Japan.
2: What is your favorite passage from the Bible?
John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
3: Have you ever made a short movie with your friends or family? If so, did you enjoy doing it?
Well, I’ve never made a live-action movie with my family, but when Jeremy and I were little, we used to make short films using teddy bears and other stuffed toys. I got some DVD’s of Jeremy’s own videos for my birthday a while ago. Jeremy still likes to make movies by taking thousands of pictures of LEGO minifigures and other things, moving the objects little by little, making a well-made stop-motion video.
4: What is your all-time favorite movie? What makes it your favorite?
Hmm… That is a hard question. I’m sort of a fan of Sci-Fi, for example Star Wars, and also adventure movies such as Indiana Jones. But I think my all-time favorite movie is The Polar Express, which is also my brother’s favorite. When he was little, he could have watched the movie every day! (Although that’s kind of an exaggeration…) I like it because it’s exciting and heart-warming. I recommend watching it in Christmas time.
5: If you were watching a film for the first time and there was content that went against your conscience, would you just “fight through it”, or would you turn it off?
If it was on TV, then I would just change the channel, or just turn the TV off. But if it’s on DVD, then I’ll skip the bad parts by fast-forwarding the movie. And if people in the movie speak bad language, then we just change the language setting to Japanese, which is safer.
We are still editing A Tangled Web. Lord willing, we will be done editing late this week, after that we will compose the last bit of music, and then somewhere around the 25th or 27th it should be up on the website.
Thank you all for following along as we make this film!
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
