The first Christ-centered romantic adventure film “Beyond the Mask,” will be coming to theaters on April 6th 2015 from Burns Family Studio, and director Chad Burns starting in the year of 1775. The film is about Will Reynolds, a mercenary for the British East India Company on the run. While on the run in the American Colonies, Reynolds works to earn back the trust of his Charlotte, and Ben Franklin as he works to foil a plot. Andrew Cheney (Seasons of Gray) stars as the hero with a story that is expected to encourage and celebrate what true freedom is in Christ. The project was originally on Kickstarter and raised over 24,000 in 2011 in a 40-day period and is expected to be released  in 1,000 theaters.

“From production quality and special effects to acting to the storyline combo of gospel and adventure, this is Christian filmmaking 2.0,” Burns said in a press release. 

Actor John Rhys-Davies from Lord of the Rings and Kara Killmer (“Chicago Fire”) will star as Charlotte. For more information go to
