Chatting Moments With Actress, Jenn Gotzon!

I always admire people who have a deep passion for using their talent for God, and are not afraid to show it! Jenn Gotzon is one of such. I saw that passion shine through in the silent movie, the The Good Book by Faith Flix Films (You can read my review of that wonderful movie here). We connected on twitter, and Jenn was gracious to let me interview her on TBAP. In reading her answers, I hope you get to appreciate her boldness and the lovely person that she is! So folks, I introduce to you Jenn Gotzon—first time on TBAP! Enjoy! Miranda ~ Hello Jenn! Delighted to have you here on TBAP! Could you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Movie Review ~ The Good Book

About the Movie The Good Book is the first evangelical silent feature to be released since sound was added to movies. It tells the story of a small New Testament that is passed along from individual to individual. These include young and old, rich and poor, blessed and forsaken. For seven of the strangers, it provides hope and meaning when they need it most. It is currently making rounds through the film festival circuit where it has received numerous awards including “Most Inspirational Film” at Hollywood Christian Film Festival and “Best Female Director” at GloryReelz Christian Film Festival, and was nominated for the prestigious “Best Mission” Stellae Award at the Pan Pacific Film Festival In L.A. Genre Christian/General Drama My Rating ***** (5 Stars) Release Date *2015 My Review This is a wonderful story with a powerful message that shows how God can use the Bible to change lives. It begins with a tragedy that sends a little boy running from home, who is then forced to live off the streets as he becomes homeless. …

Interview ~ Christian Filmmaker, Sharon Wilharm of Faith Flix

It is my pleasure to introduce to you Sharon Wilharm, a Christian film producer/director. I first discovered Sharon when I followed a tweet that led to her website (and didn’t regret it!), and saw the wonderful work she was doing there. I later thought it would be nice to interview on To Be A Person. Please, join us below. Me: Hello Sharon! Thank you for visiting To Be A Person today. Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself. Sharon: I’m a former school teacher and freelance writer who married a communications major. We live in a 120-year-old house in a small Southern town and our only daughter got married last weekend. Me: Congrats on your daughter getting married! Much blessings to them! And, a 120-year old house? Cool! So, what made you go into Christian film as opposed to secular? Sharon: I take the parables of the talents very seriously. God blesses us with gifts and abilities and, it’s our responsibility to take those gifts and invest them in projects that will …
