We have just completed our filming on the book of Ruth with Tommy Nelson. We are pumped. Tommy, Senior Pastor of Denton Bible Church, and long time teacher for The Hub did an amazing job.
This was a special filming for many reasons. The book, this picture of Ruth, her character, the model she is, and then the raw love story behind her and Boaz and then the picture of Christ redeeming us, just like Boaz redeemed Ruth. All the ingredients for the ultimate Hollywood Classic.
Also, the location. Wow, City Church International, www.citychurchintl.org, is a very special place both in architecture and more importantly the body of Christ that fills that building. The building is a 1917 church built by the Congregationalist. Very European in its wood work and amazingly unchanged these past 93 years.
Here is just one of the behind scenes pics we will start to release.
As for a dad, that’s me, the dude with all the gray hair, but more importantly, that is my oldest daughter, KK, who wanted a ‘work day’ with dad. Of course this work day lasted until about 2AM! You can’t tell it here, but she is actually asleep standing up.
Ruth will release on August 23, 2010. Be praying for Matt Coleman, www.unblindproductions.com, as he does post and graphic work on the project.
