Loved the movie! (I saw the pre-screening). It was better than the second one in
my opinion. I still like the first movie best. And I met Danor for a brief
second. He did a great job and it was nice to shake his hand. Awesome to read
more about him and his conversion story.Matt Meese (the Studio C
guy) did a decent job too.
I hope the movie finds its way to Alaska...
Danor is a fine actor, and I'm glad this production in Utah is giving him
an opportunity to shine. So many fear so much about what an acting
lifestyle can do to destroy. I think of the opportunities these mediums have to
showcase ways we can build. Our daughter, Rachel Payne, is an actor/singer whose
musical, ANTHEM is currently playing in NYC. It is about the 200th Anniversary
of the writing of The Star-Spangled Banner, and shows the humanity of families
caught up in wars from the Revolution through Afghanistan. You can
find evil anywhere; prescription drugs, meth and heroin are melting our snug and
safe communities. We need to get over this "boogyman" perception and
recognize life is what we make it. May as well do what we love. We
need to go forward, doing whatever it is we love, in faith and without fear.
Remember the mustard seed. The sort Jesus spoke of grows in Israel, and is as
small as one speck of powdered sugar! I'm thankful Danor lives by that
faith, knowing God will always guide his steps in righteousness.See
The Void this weekend so it can spread.
Keeping the commandments makes us more free, and the best artists know this.
Sounds like a fascinating man. I'd love to meet him.
He's been pursuing this for a really long time, it's good to see him
successful. ah-ha was a looong time ago now!
Gerald makes a lot of great points--such as that having a family makes you
better, and doesn't tie you down; and that following Christ's path is
the safe, happy and balanced way back.
