How did you come in contact with Leesley Films?
After completing the recording of my four song EP of Christian rock, I began looking for distribution opportunities for my work. During this search, I came across a Christian radio page on Facebook. Jamison responded to my initial post and asked to hear my creations.
How important is the story of “Apparition” to you personally?
I believe in the Holy Spirit. By extension, a Christian also has to believe that evil spirits exist. Far from idle observers, these evil spirits are engaged in spiritual warfare . . . a true war between good and evil. I feel that some people are only willing to recognize only half of the big picture, believing that evil isn’t real. “Apparition” should be an eye opener for a lot of those people.
What are the differences in the film “Apparition” compared to other Christian films?
This movie isn’t afraid to approach a frightening, frequently overlooked, aspect of Christianity.
How much time do you devote to the production of the movie?
Initially, I began my interaction with LF as a music contributor. In a short period of time, I became involved in recording another song with Jamison and Vito Galati. Furthermore, I am providing the office space setting for Scene 72, where the live film shoot is going to take place.
What is your long-term goal(s) in the Christian film industry?
My long-term goal is to develop a successful second career focusing on my various creative skills and talents.
What did you like about the character you played in the movie?
I ‘m going to be in the live shoot scene!
How has it been working with LF?
So far, my experience with LF has been a very positive one. I look forward to working with like-minded creative Christians to produce impactful works to spread His word.
I’m very excited to see where God leads me with this opportunity. I pray that my work is pleasing in His sight.
Rockin’ for The Rock!
