Telling the Morality Tale
You have a book…now what?

You spent all of this time living your life, experiencing the intervention of the Lord in miraculous ways. You have seen miracles and amazing provision and healing happen in your life and you want to share this with the world in a book. You toiled away, writing and rewriting, getting friends and family to read it, getting a publisher and now, you have your finished product in your hands… Now what?

The next big question is…”Is this a movie?” Well, that depends! Sometimes “yes” and sometimes “no.” But how do YOU know?

Most Christian films are “Morality Tales.” Many people think of them as “old fashioned” but are they? “Breaking Bad” is one example of a morality tale told about the sin of pride in a devastating and well written hard-hitting story as a television series but “It’s A Wonderful Life” is also a morality tale.

Your story may have some of the elements needed to tell a compelling story in a movie but what are the elements that you need to do that?

Award winning filmmakers, Wes and Amanda Llewellyn (The Moment After I, II, It’s Supernatural) have discovered what those elements are and can help to get you on your way to turning YOUR story into one of the most “tried and true” story telling formats, “The Morality Tale.” Join us for our seminar at Global Media Summit! …And ACTION!

Servant Leadership in Tribe Hollywood
The second seminar, “Servant Leadership in Tribe Hollywood”, will explain how servant leadership can transform a film set. Wes, Amanda and Ben will also look at the balance of being a strong leader, getting things done, while still maintaining an attitude of loving care. How does your Christian walk look to others when you are working on a project or someone else’s? In a faith-based film or a secular one, whatever your position, how can you operate with excellence as well as witness for Christ while working in the industry, even with co-workers who don’t like you because of your faith?  Whether you are a producer, writer, director or actor, this will be an inspirational and informative seminar!

Today’s Publishing Realities

We’ll talk about the two main markets, where religious books fit in, the three types of publishing, and what authors need to be successful in publishing today. And we’ll take your questions and provide answers you can use.

“Christians Are Hateful”: The Cultural Challenge for Today’s Christian Communicators
— Why does our culture increasingly hear Christian beliefs as hate speech? How can we connect with people who are predisposed against us? The cultural challenge is great, but we can break through. Find out how.
