Last week on our conference call with Gary and Beth Lambert after spending much time in prayer, we have made some major aggressive decisions as a team. Henry Blackabee said in his book, Experiencing God, "Get in on what God is doing". This mantra is defining our process.
FOCUSING ON PRAYER
For the past couple years, the film and management team have prayed to move forward and we have patiently been waiting on God. Financially, the family made a decision to focus on prayer due to limited funds, which the film team has followed. An excellent prayer team was brought together thanks to the hard work of our amazing prayer captains and Beth.
Gary began to focus on a certain group of people whom he truly believed were individuals and organizations who would invest financially in the Pennsylvania area. Stephanie, our Vice President immediately saw the wisdom in this and began charting a course.
PENNSYLVANIA INVESTOR RECRUITMENT WAS DELAYED
Then, the decision was made based on limited fiscal support to stop going to investors. Months have gone by and we have prayed.
While this was going on, the film team continued to meeting with investor prospects, hedge funds and capitalists. There have been many times we felt we were close to the right partner, but this has not yet emerged.
A NEW FINANCIAL TRACK
In recent days, opportunities for a new investment track has come to the forefront. This has now opened up new doors for fiscal opportunity not previously discussed. This financial weapon is a game changer and the team is excited to share with Pennsylvania prospects ASAP.
Our film team will be back in Pennsylvania, within the next forty five days. Stephanie Musser will be scheduling meetings. We will move forward in faith and look for seed capital, which is essential while we are in meetings. The Lamberts will have the responsibility to lead in the financing process, but they will have the additional support of staff member Stephanie to assist in the scheduling, with Dr. McAfee making trips to PA. This is why your prayers are key in this journey and your investment is TOP PRIORITY.
Initial investments are needed to fund the recruitment of investors. Do you know someone who might connect with this vision? Therefore, after the initial costs of the screenplay, only a few days of the film team's time has been invested in newspaper and television interviews which were highly successful, thanks to Gary and Beth Lambert.
In our recent conference call, the Lambert family believes strongly that money can be found in Pennsylvania. Therefore, we need your help in pointing us to who we can talk to and schedule meetings in the coming month. Please contact Gary Lambert or the film team and we will begin following up. Many of you come to our website, so pray about who you know and be PROACTIVE!
MONTHLY 30 MINUTE PRAYER TIME - FIRST TUESDAYS 6;30 PM - 7 PM
We will begin to have monthly ZOOM calls on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm Eastern Standard Time to all prayer partners. These calls will be made available to our prayer team and any potential prospects who would like updates. We will not have meetings on Thanksgiving and Christmas and Holiday weeks.
CAST & CREW FIRST CALL MEETINGS
Meetings with individuals and organizations who would like to be involved in our making of the movie will be introduced to either Dr. Kevin McAfee, the film director or Stephanie Musser, Co-Producer. One of the two, or both will be on the majority of the Zoom calls. 10 minutes will be allocated for production updates, 10 minutes will be focused on questions, 10 minutes will be focused on prayer and instruction.
ACTOR AUDITION APPOINTMENTS - NEXT FORTY FIVE DAYS
Many inquiries from the newspaper and promotions opened doors for actors to be involved. When Dr. McAfee returns to Pennsylvania, he will have meetings with actors for the film for the first time in casting appointments. Due to the large amount of interest, appointments will be limited. Each actor will need to bring a resume, a head shot and pay a processing fee if you are not "union". Stephanie Musser will schedule these meetings and she can be reached when the actual dates are going to be scheduled. Watch for an additional BLOG in the next forty five days so you can book your casting appointment.
If you have interest in being being on our prayer team, please contact us and we will introduce you to our prayer captains, our process of intercession and bring you into our community.
