STORIES THAT WILL BE LIFE CHANGING FOR THE VIEWING AUDIENCE
I have been looking for inspirational stories of faith and redemption for over 40 years after working on the film THE CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE. Over the years literally tens of thousands of lives have been changed as a result of seeing TCSB with many coming out of gangs and drugs.
The stories I want to see produced also have the potential to be life changing. Screenplays and treatments for the films I want to see produced are:
Low budget films
A true story of spiritual warfare in Hollywood and on an Indian reservation. It was a miraculous time toward the end of the Jesus movement when the all volunteer 24 hour crisis intervention ministry Centrum of Hollywood began on 7-7-77.
SURVIVAL AT DEARBORN A comedy based on a white counselor who takes a live in job at a racially mixed juvenile boys home in the center of Los Angeles in the late 1960s at a time when racial tensions were high. Will the counselor survive?
THE SPENDERS Two sisters leave with their husbands on vacation for a week. One couple to live it up in Las Vegas. The other couple to help out a poor orphanage in Mexico. They both have their own unique set of problems.
ANSWERING THE CALL
ANSWERING THE CALL is a comedy about con artists who bring in a phony pastor and take over a church. It soon becomes apparent that the con artists are not the only ones in the church who need to be saved.
THE TOMMIE SCOTT STORY
Tommie grew up in the gangs of Los Angeles and lived a life of destruction. At age 28 he had been in 17 correctional facilities and over 25 friends were dead. It was in the Clark County Jail in Las Vegas with no hope that he experienced a miracle that changed his life. Tommie wrote a novel on his life. A 23 minute documentary can be viewed at The Christian Studio website.
THE GREATEST GAMBLE
(a short film) Two couples in the high Sierra’s find themselves snowbound in their cabin with a pastor who had to seek shelter from the sudden storm . Their cabin is located near the gambling casinos at Lake
Tahoe. The conflict of lifestyle and beliefs grow more intense during their two day ordeal.
THE SONG SINGER is about an 18 year old boy who has to leave a juvenile boy’s home on his 18th birthday. With no family and no where to go a former counselor at the juvenile home reaches out to him and takes him into his apartment. Little did the counselor who is a Christian know the challenges he would be facing.
A JOURNEY - LOVE NEVER FAILS
This true epic love story is about an Eretrean Pastor separated from his fiancee by religious persecution, imprisonment and war that takes you across North Africa. A miraculous story of faith and survival.
Martin Bennett’s award winning historical novel and screenplay on Mitsuo Fuchida (lead plot on raid on Pearl Harbor) and Jacob DeShazer (a Doolittle Raider). I first heard this amazing story from Jacob DeShazer while visiting him and his wife at their home in Oregon in the 1990s. T. Martin Bennett has exclusive rights to WOUNDED TIGER.
WILLIAM BRADFORD - THANKSGIVING PILGRIMAGE An inspirational historic epic drama that takes you from from the Midlands of England (early 1600s) to the first Thanksgiving on the shores of Cape Cod (October 1621).
WHEN LOVE TAKES YOU IN

There is a vast market for well produced inspirational films with compelling stories.
