What I like about this Film is that it is a high quality product made independently on a low budget. Of course there were many willing volunteers. Also the film was captured with a single sub $4000 camera. I am looking forward to a Christian Film put together with a Canon 5D MarkII. Here is some more trivia.
After the Story/Plot there is a brief outline of the Production and Post Production equipment and Software used. The actual Trailer is available at the end of the post. Please feel free to add your thoughts.
Dave, a widower, is working himself to death. Late nights doing paperwork and running on fumes is the norm. Bills are piling by the week, and foreclosure looms on the horizon. Blaming God for his wife’s death, he ends his relationship with the church.
His son, Steven, has been watching with great concern. Along with his grandpa and best friend Maggie, Steven works to reach his father in any way he can. Despite his grieving, Dave begins to move in the right direction seeking an answer to the question that has been haunting him since his wife’s death…WHY?
Standing Firm is a story of suffering, God’s purpose in it, and being joyful despite it.
