(THE TOMMIE SCOTT STORY )
FROM, GANGS, DRUGS, CRIME TO SOLDIER FOR CHRIST is a story greatly needed today to bring hope to those caught up in destructive lifestyles. A 23 minute documentary of Tommie telling his story can be seen on You Tube. Innovo publishing has just released his autobiography. This is a book that needs to be placed in every juvenile hall, jail and prison in our country. Tommie has shared his testimony on The 700 Club and on news outlets here and internationally. Kleg worked on THE CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE and over the years tens of thousands of lives have been changed with many coming out of gangs and drugs as a result of seeing the film. Tommie grew up in the gangs of south central Los Angeles. His dad was one of the first Crip gang members. Tommie was raised by a single mom since his dad was in prison most of the time. Tommie was put on the gang (beat into it) at age 12 and that is when he started down a destructive path of drugs, stealing cars, shoot outs with rival gangs fueled by hate and his hopeless environment. He had been in over 17 jails and prisons. The first juvenile camp he was sentenced to his dad had excaped from years earlier. Tommie and his dad did heists together and ended up in the same prison, on the same yard with the same name. Tommie had many near death experiences in and out of prison. He and a friend were walking out of a market when he was knifed in the belly and slashed up to the edge of his heart. His friends and family were dying all around him as a result of gangs and drugs. By age 30 over 30 of his friends and family were dead. He never thought he would live past 21. The more death he saw the more hardened he became and was known as 'hitman' on the street. Tommie's girlfriend R'achet and mother of three of his kids is an amazing story of sticking with him through the gangs, alcohol and outburst of anger from all the hate he had inside. And then when all hope was gone in the Las Vegas jail an amazing miracle happened. He walked into a Bible study anti social, suicidal and depressed and God came into his life replacing the hate with love, the despair with joy and hopelessness with purpose for living. Now he is bringing hope to others who are in destructive lifestyles. Tommie conducted a funeral (2-22-14) for a friend of his who had been shot and killed. Tommie's story gives hope to anyone in a destructive lifestyle. TOMMIE'S BOOK is available. SCREENPLAY available soon.

A. ....or can he?A comedy based on a group home for juvenile boys in central Los Angeles in the late 1960s at a time when racial tensions were high.

Their rebellion against his authority and constant pranks along with being threatened with bodily harm created a lot of fear, frustration and resentment toward the boys. The new counselor's anger and frustration eventually turns to compassion as he learns more about the background of the boys and of the family and environmental factors that helped contribute to their feelings of hopelessness. As the boys at Dearborn sense a change of heart in the counselor they start to respect his authority and yet still pull a few pranks every now and then. The following is a letter written by writer, director and producer Don Murray following my working with him on the feature motion picture THECROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE. Dear Kleg, I just finished reading SURVIVAL AT DEARBORN. I think its an excellent filmproperty. Your characters are so rich, so real and interesting that it's obvious that the film script came from a true life experience of the author. No one's imagination alone could create such characters and circumstances. This type of true life experience is what compelled me to write and produce the film THE HOODLUM PRIEST and to write and direct THE CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE. I would be happy to direct your script as well and I see no reason that we shouldn't be as successful with this as with the other two. With congratulations and cordial regards, Don Murray.

(THE PILGRIM'S STORY)
TREATMENT by Kleg Seth
The Pilgrim's Story has never been made into a dramatic feature film telling their entire story. When they seperated from the Church of England in the early 1600s they were immediately guilty of treason punishable by prison and a pastor could be put to death. They eventually were able to move to Holland where they endured hard labor and a very wordly society. Twelve years later in 1620 a total of 102 Pilgrims made the dangerous and almost fatal voyage across the Atlantic aboard the Mayflower to the new world. Starting to build their colony on the shores of Cape Cod at the beginning of the winter season took its toll on the Pilgrims. When the winter was over almost half of their number had perished. The entire winter they were on guard night and day against an Indian attack. As much as they had tried to have friendly contact with the Indians they were not successful. That is until in the spring they meet Squanto who had been kidnapped years earlier by the English and taken to the slave block in Spain. He was responsible for the economic and, most likely, physical survival of the Pilgrims teaching them how to plant corn, pelt beavers and trade with the Indians. The most important part of the Pilgrims week was when they came together to worship the Lord and receive God's Word. The success of their crops that first summer brought about a Thanksgiving celebration with the Indians that lasted for three days. Between the feasting they had bow and arrow and musket contests and wrestling matches between the Pil;grims and the Indians. The resolve of the Pilgrims to give Thanks was not just during the times of plenty but also as they faced hardship, persecution and death. The faith of the Pilgrims and their love for the Lord, each other and the Indians has the potential to be a great inspirational epic movie.
(ROMANIA: PASTOR RICHARD WURMBRAND)
Tortured for Christ tells Pastor Richard Wurmbrand’s story. He went from spending 14 years in prison under communism in Romania to founding Voice of the Martyrs helping those who are being persecuted for their religious beliefs around the world.
Although Jewish he and his wife came to know Jesus Christ as their Messiah living in Bucarest, Romania. The following took place in Romania during the second war when Germany had invaded and taken control of Romania.
“My wife is sleeping in the other room because she has been ill,” Pastor Richard Wurmbrand began. “She and I are both Jewish. Her family perished in the same Nazi concentration camp where you just boasted of killing Jews with children still in their arms. Perhaps you murdered my wife’s family.”
Upon hearing this, the pastor’s guest, a soldier, became very angry and stood to leave. But Richard stopped him. “Wait. I want to propose an experiment. I want to tell my wife who you are and what you did. But my wife will not curse you or even look at you angrily. She will accept you.”
The man sat with his mouth open, but speechless.
The pastor continued, “Now if my wife, who is only human can forgive you-then how much more will Jesus love and forgive you?”
The man buried his face in his hands. “What have I done? How can I go on living with the guilt of so much blood? Jesus, please forgive me.” The soldier went on to give his life to Christ.
Then Richard went and woke his wife Sabina. “This is the murderer of your sisters, your brothers, and your parents,” he introduced the man. “But now he has repented.” She wrapped her hands around his neck and kissed him on the cheek.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
