Hi Friends,

Wowzers we have so much news to share with you! We’ve got quite the festival lineup for October and many opportunities to see the film. I am particularly excited because four of the festivals this month are in Washington State – the home state of the cast, myself and where we filmed most of the movie. Many of the screenings, including all four in WA will have Q&A with either cast members and/or the director. Since you all are my special email peeps you are invited to our Northwest Premiere Party this Friday after the Tacoma Film Festival screening, follow our facebook or twitter page for the details and other updates!

It was so much fun seeing many of you at the IFC screening and other festivals this summer. I look forward to seeing more of you this month at one of the many screenings below!

The Wall Street Journal, Christian Post, Seattle Times and other cool press have given BIBLE QUIZ shout outs since my last email and we got a stellar review from Roboapocolypse who says the film is “humor-filled”, “raw and emotional” and “easily one of my favorite documentaries of all time” !

The Guardian (UK paper) just mentioned the Bible Quiz documentary in the same breath/openning paragraph as Darren Aronofsky, Will Smith, Paul Verhoeven, Ridley Scott, Stephen Spielberg, P Langston Huges and others! The article is called “Holy-wood: the film industry’s new passion for Christ”. Check it out:

Tacoma’s premier arts and alternative newspaper interviewed Mikayla and I about the film.

Sneak Peak Video of “Rivals” scene!

Wow! We have just a little over one week left of the campaign! It’s been going strong and building momentum as we get closer to the end.

Thank you to everyone who has donated and if you have not yet, please consider contributing! It takes a village to make a movie. Filmmaking is a collaborative art form and I want you to join the team. Your contributions really DO make a difference and every dollar effects how the project turns out!

If you’ve been waiting to donate or on the fence, now is the time to act! There’s only 8 days left. All contributions go directly to supporting the movie and are tax-deductible to the extent of the law. Contribute now and get t-shirts, trophies, posters, tickets to the film and more!

To wet your appetite, below is a little sneak peak of the film. It’s a scene towards the beginning of the film that introduces you to our main characters, JP & Mikayla and their rivals the Cedar Park team! Dun dun Duhhhnnnnn!!!

Check it out here:

Many thanks!
