Your Chance To Be A Patron Of The Arts

Your favorite film producer here, with another opportunity to bring Christian Art That Does Not Suck™ to life.

About a year ago, see, there was a Kickstarter campaign for a situation comedy revolving around the life and times of, get this, a Roman Catholic Priest.

The Conversion of Takashi Nagai, And His Vocation of Love

All the buzz a few months back was the cause for the sainthood of Dorothy Day. The New York Times even weighed in on her cause, though they don’t quite know what to make of her, and of Catholics who admire her for being, how can I put this…Catholic. I daresay that they would probably have the same problem figuring out any of the saints, come to think of it. [Read more...]

Because Takashi Nagai Could Give Such A Speech

The other day, I posted about a film being made about the life of Dr. Takashi Nagai. Today, I want to share with you a speech he gave after the war.

Keep in mind that he had lost his wife, almost all of his students, and many of his colleagues, when “the Bomb” was dropped on Nagasaki.

And his lesson to us all was to share Our Lord’s new commandment: love one another. [Read more...]

Your Favorite Film Producer Is $5.00 Short…

Whoa…we’ve got real, live, actors!

What’s that? You forgot that I was your favorite film producer? Say it ain’t so, dear reader. Surely you remember how it has been a lifelong ambition of mine to sit in a chair like this one, and act all “big shot” important on the back lot of a film studio. [Read more...]
