Scoop ~ Interview with GQ Model, Hollywood Actor & Author, John T. Prather

John T. Prather is an actor and model with a heart for God, passion for spreading the Word, and helping out kids in the foster care system.

Article ~ The [Entertainment] Gatekeeper

The New Faces Director Many years ago, I worked in a major acting and modeling agency in the West as the New Faces Division Director (I will keep the agency unnamed). I was responsible for seeking new talent, vetting new talent, and training and helping develop new talent. Pretty much, you had to impress me in order for you to move forward to be represented as…new talent. It meant going forward to introduce models and actors to directors, casting directors, producers, and setting up “go-sees” for models for national and international agencies like IMG, BOSS, LA MODELS, and also, going to Milan, Paris, Japan. You get the idea. I LOVED my job and I was GOOD at it! During my time in this capacity, I was “important” because I had business cards and the card named my title. I WAS THE GATEKEEPER.  I discovered some fantastic talent, met some colorful characters, and made some great friends and colleagues. I opened doors for many aspiring talent and I (unfortunately) single-handedly crushed many dreams of potential new …

Movie Review ~ An Interview With God By Astute Films, Big Indie Pictures & Giving Films

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Drama/Mystery Release Date August 21, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review A solemn, thought-provoking, but overall, hope-inspiring story that centers on the relationship between God and man and how this affects life on earth generally, as well as how it applies to individual living. An Interview With God presents a scenario where the all-knowing God seeks to help man dig deep into the questions of life that matter the most, but are rarely asked because of fear or negligence. Paul (Brendon Thwaites), the journalist, confronts God (David Straithairn) at first, with mockery questions, and subsequently, accusations, which God wisely points out the sources from which each unique issue arises. Interestingly, this story is not cliché at all, as it approaches the man-meets-God scenario with finesse and a unique twist that presents an altogether faith-inspiring message that is timeless. A well-rounded story!

Actor Scoop ~ Interview with Actress Sharonne Lanier

The brilliant and lovely Sharonne Lanier is one of the leading ladies of Faithflix’s Summer of ’67 movie (read the TBAP review here). Her sparkling screen presence is incredibly difficult to miss, even when a secondary character, and her vibrant faith is all kinds of lovely contagious as she talks about Jesus as her Lord and Savior without missing a heartbeat. Sharonne gladly shared bits of her faith, life journey, and career with TBAP today in way that displays her passion and the joy that comes from doing what she loves. Her honesty and bright personality are both refreshing and inspiring and invites a listener to participate in the genuineness of the arts. Take a look! Miranda ~ Hello Sharonne!

Movie (DVD) Review ~ Paul, The Apostle of Christ by AFFIRM Films

Category Religious/Christian Genre Bible Epic Release Date June 19, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review A touching and stunning story of the friendship and brotherhood of Apostle Paul and Dr. Luke (the writer of one of the gospels and some of Paul’s letters). This scripted story of Paul aims to and shines bright Christ’s love, faith, and hope that is able to overcome all tragedies and sufferings, and demonstrates the unfailing joy that sustains the souls of true believers in such sufferings, inspiring them (and us) to persevere because, our hope is alive and undying even in the darkest of times, and that God’s joy, indeed, is the source of our strength—what a powerful theme for such a time as this!  In applaud of the DVD version, it is worth mentioning the special features on the DVD that accompanied the motion picture, because, they not only showcase the other wonderful works by AFFIRM FILMS (previews), they also bring to light the elements that helped visually amplify the story and its message in a fashion that pierces the soul—and …
