On the silver screen
“HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS DON’T NECESSARILY CORRUPT FAITH FILMS. Many film makers of faith are encouraged to stay as far away from the studio system as possible, fearing any positive mentions of God will be shot down by evil Hollywood. Most studio executives, however, are simply businessmen and women like any other industry. Many are even believers in the God of the Bible. In the case of Grace Unplugged., Lionsgate took a page from Sony Pictures (who released hugely successful faith titles including ‘Fireproof’ and ‘Courageous’) by taking a largely ‘hands off’ approach during the making of Grace Unplugged.. While Lionsgate did offer tips and pointers through all phases of the production, the filmmakers were free to make final decisions, including those dealing with the faith elements of the film. Put another way, the filmmakers had access to all the resources and experience of the studio, yet without the encumbrances. In other words, it can be done!
