People who are "behind the scenes" are as integral to every movie as the stars who appear on screen. They are a team of professionals, interns and experts who have served as apprentices, production assistants to the GRP veterans in making a motion picture happen. In this month, we want to thank ALL the behind the scenes people.
Let's begin with the finance experts, the accountants, the financial advisors and the investors who believe in this film and are working to make it amazing. We also want to thank the legal groups who are coming alongside of our team. Forrest Fordham from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, James Randolph Smith from Nashville, Tennessee, Tonya Mallean from Beverly Hills, California and Rick Denker our general counsel from Oklahoma City.
Without professional advisors to help us make a movie, it never happens. Larry Owsley and Scott Buzzell have been working as Executive Producers and commercial real estate developers have been vital to our process. Jag Gholson our wealth manager and Lynn McAfee our administrator has been key in our Executive Producing team along the way.
Stephanie Musser is serving as a Co-Executive Producer and Julie Spencer is the Executive Assistant to Dr. McAfee who is the filmmaker coordinating these activies on the business side of the film's production work. Jim Gromer is teaming up with Dr. McAfee to begin working on the beat outline and scene by scene outline once the funding is completed.
Recently, we added to the JP KNIGHTS website the "BEHIND THE SCENES" overview which captures the amazing pictures inside of the Johnstown, area. Recent Penn State graduate Ben Lambert led the journey in capturing these amazing filmed spots. He worked closely alongside Co-Executive Producer Gary Lambert for weeks in filming. They had began working on an extensive location and shot list for the overview. Please make sure and watch this wonderful visualization to learn more.
Ben's recent photographic and cinematic accomplishments earned Ben the position of the DP for the first chapter in creating a "BEHIND THE SCENES". Once the motion picture begins, a more comprehensive movie will be made as an "add on" to the Home Entertainment product.
Therefore, we take this month's blog to thank all those nameless folk who work tirelessly to create visualizations, music, web development and support. Stephanie Musser worked for weeks on the shot selection and first draft edit prior to having this professional overview of the area, while submitting original music for the overview.
Jim Gromer played the vital role as the final editor on the film shots collected and additionally contributed from his own stock library a series of film shots to bring our OVERVIEW to life for all of you. Without these exceptional people to capture the heart of the town, we would not be able to understand the true inspiration behind this film.
Movie making is about a film team and this embodies the hard work of many excellent and trained artisans to bring to the attention of the world, a powerful story in JP KNIGHTS. The film and the entire list of musicans involved embody another vital part of who we are. From the music logs of Ms. Musser we have original compositions in our visualizations.
We most importantly thank the many "faceless" champions who are also praying for the team each and every day. If you desire to become part of JP KNIGHTS the movie, please contact us and select a day you would want to pray for our journey. The entire management group appreciates the support of Pennsylvanias and film enthusiasts who would like to see a film that is a cross between the highly successful HARRY POTTER series and the successful faith based book, THIS PRESENT DARKNESS.
Story begins this journey and Beth Lambert wrote THE HARVESTER CHRONICLES and people still can't put the book down. The screenwriting team will illuminate the story telling elements for the movie being developed when the time launches after the funding is completed. We believe the film is going to be amazing as we continue to seek the right Finance Partners for the development of the much needed screenplay. We are one fifth of the way there, so continue to be in touch with us if you have an interest in participating. Gary Lambert would be honored to speak with you about how you, your business or network can be involved.
Thank you BEHIND THE SCENES film team members and we look forward to sharing more about the many groups of amazing people in future blogs and in the manufacturing process of the movie, once we have begun.
