Such interesting conversations!

Really appreciate Kevin’s perspective and willingness to chat with the people in the industry he critiques. It’s rare to hear such friendly conversations between parties of differing perspectives

A ‘must read’ podcast

Possessing a camera doesn’t constitute being a filmmaker. This is ‘one giant leap’ a long time coming for the world of Christian visual storytellers.

So Great

I’m so happy this conversation finally happened. Great to see Alex isn’t stuck up or oblivious to criticism, and I’m glad Kevin challenged him on so many things, it was such a good discussion. Both of them have a good sense of humor. Can’t wait for more podcasts like this.

Spirituality on Screen – Hacksaw Ridge

Faith is at the crux of who we are as Christians, but it’s not easy to portray spirituality on screen. It’s not a visual concept, aside from the actions it prompts us to take that defy human logic and fleshly reason.
