I wonder if the 10 cents from every dollar toward the Clone newsletter still goes toward his wife and kids and new Honda.

Didn't he direct a movie starring Michael W. Smith a few years ago?

I agree with the sentiment, though -- the idea that it seems like there hasn't been a completed film to this point. I wonder how he's making a living.

I gotta say, I wonder about the legality of all this. I mean, I'm sure it's LEGAL, but I also have a feeling that it could be really COMPLICATED, at least based on some comments that Kevin Smith made a little while ago ("We got some lawyers to look at it, and it's a f*****g nightmare to accept donations to make a movie. A tax nightmare, it sounded so good in theory").

Right, but no one saw it and we can't remember what it was called. And for some of us, the idea of the two working together in the first place was a bit strange.
FWIT, Second Chance is by far the best "Christian movie" I've ever seen. Funny, biting, a call for social justice. If only as many churches would play it as played the pabulum of other "Christian movies."
Given the way movies generally run their finances(by cooking the books so that, for tax purposes, they never make a profit), I'm not surprised that anyone trying the Hollywood method of filmmaking would think it a nightmare.

Now we'll see if Taylor can pull the movie together and actually begin production on the 25th. I find it interesting that the site lists the project location as Nashville. Will it be standing in for Portland?

The movie's inability to fit into a pre-existing category helps explain why Miller and his collaborators had so much trouble coming up with the money to make the film. "You're sort of pissing off both sides," Miller said. "Hollywood hates it because we don't have our head up our ass, and the church hates it because we don't have our head up our ass."

That post had faulty info -- the budget of the film is under 1 million, not 5 million.

Steve posted on his Facebook page that he'd make new music this year; whether or not he's serious I'm not entirely certain.
