  1. I’m a filmmaker currently living in Massachusetts. I have a Bachelor’s in Radio, TV and Film from South Dakota State University (2000) and attended New York Film Academy in the Summer of 1997. I also spent five years in Hollywood after graduation working at the American Film Institute. What I’m working on now are what I call cinematic parables. I’ve become something of a lay theologian these last few years and have been using film to explore/articulate some of my ideas. I use the term 'parable' loosely, as my shorts are probably more cryptic than the direct teachings of Christ. Though His words also held deeper, more mysterious meanings beyond the surface narrative. And naturally He'd be a far superior film-maker if he ever chose to pick up a camera! I use a very low-fi approach, shooting on film exclusively and employing the conventions of B-movies and Underground Cinema of the 60s and 70s to covey a Christian message. I'd like to think that my work is pioneering in that way, filtering the message of the gospels through the aesthetics of Lynch, Herzog, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and even the Universal Horror films of the early 20th Century. There are four shorts and a feature on my website. There are also production stills, some screenplays and reviews. If any of you are in the New England area and would be interested in working on upcoming projects, do let me know. I've been using my time in quarantine to finish up post-production on a new short, BERNADETTE, and prepping my second feature, SECRET MESSIAHS!, which will start shooting as soon as my production team is ready to come outside again. So please take a look and I'd love to hear your feedback. https://www.metrofilmproduktion.com @MetroFilmProduk Keep up the good work and God bless, - James
  2. Does anyone actually know any "evangelical" planning to vote for Trump in the US election? I know that I've seen several articles (here, here, and here) that are about the evangelical voting bloc supporting trump in primaries, fears about the evangelical voting bloc, or calls from one evangelical or another to the evangelical bloc not to vote for trump. But other than Falwell Jr, and Pat Robertson, I hardly know any evangelicals planning to vote for Trump. My circle of evangelicals, from my home church, to my Facebook feed, to my family, only 1 person is planning to vote for Trump. So I'm curious--who are these people? How are they being defined? Do you know anyone? What makes them tick? Are you an evangelical Trump supporter? Can you share why? My step-dad, a proud, conservative evangelical, plans to vote for Trump. Mom's a Carson supporter. But my stepdad is a semi-retired small business owner who served in Vietnam, worked hard all his life, believes America is a Christian nation, believes that abortion is evil, believes that drinking alcohol is sin, and is against divorce and swear words. He's a perfect target market for a Huckabee or a Carson. But he supports Trump. I'm going to ask him why. I'm very curious how he reconciles his faith with this candidate who cheats on his former wives and sells vodka and doesn't ask anyone for forgiveness while cussing a lot. Admins--I know we're not supposed to have political topics. But this is a really interesting faith topic (at least to me). Can we keep it unless it degenerates into ugliness (i can't imagine it will based on, you know, Trump).
