Vote Your Values! | GFP Short Film

HERE'S OUR LATEST FILM! We are trying to make it go viral before the election hits, so if you would please share it on your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other internet accounts, we would really really REALLY appreciate it.

The election is fast approaching. What are YOU going to do about it? What SHOULD you do about it?
Two basic, vital points are discussed in this short film.

May it bless and motivate you to fulfill God's will.

Meet Rene Harper from "Fugitive"!

So today I have the pleasure of introducing to you another main character from the feature film we're currently working on, "Fugitive". 

As of right now, she is my allotted part and I will be playing her. Rene is kind of a crankpot for most of the beginning of the script. She is very argumentative and dominating if given the chance. Eventually she becomes the quasi-herbalist and 'food safety expert' of the group.

Here's what her description reads in the script right now.


Rene Harper - Oldest and only sister in the Harper family. Another natural born leader, even though she is not the firstborn. Dominant, realist, and a bit too bossy sometimes. A bit of a tomboy. Not typically afraid of what people think of her. However, because of her realist nature, can be pessimistic if she doesn’t stop herself from being that way. Struggling with trusting in God and trying to follow His will for her life. Also must learn a good bit of responsibility.  Age 16


So there you have most of Rene summed up. She has other sides, struggles, passions and such but you will have to see the film to find those out. :)

So what do you think? We'd love to hear your thoughts on the characters so far!

And there are more to come. *wink*
So keep your eyes peeled. We also should have a new short out by this Friday.

Meet Griffin Harper From "Fugitive"!

A random snapshot during filming a scene for a previous GFP flick

Soooo I know I haven't posted here on the GFP blog for quite a while now.

I am fully aware of the fact that I've sort of neglected this poor little filmmaking blog, and sure y'all have noticed that too, at least, the few of you who have been following Filmmakers of the Next Generation.

We're thankful for you....all 2 of you. ;) I am just not that great at blog advertising and marketing/whatever you want to call it. That or this blog is just super boring. Oh well, either way.

Y'all who do read this blog? I'm thankful for you and would give you a big panda hug right now if I could.
Thanks for sticking with us. It really is appreciated.

Soooo, what was I going to say again.... Oh, yeah. The script excerpt.

A SCRIPT EXCERPT! Yes, for the first time, you guys will officially get a little taste of the project we're currently working on at GFP.

What exactly have we been working on? Well, actually two things. The first, which I won't go into extreme detail about, is a political film stressing the need to vote. Still working on the dialogue for that, and hoping to get that filmed really soon.

The other....well, that is the big one. Right now we're calling it "Fugitive", (thanks to Meredith's inspiration for titles) This is just the working title, nothing permanant or long term. You have to call your feature length film something other than "the long film". That's what working titles are for.

So anyways, yes, it's going to be a full length, hour long movie. And it's going to be a killer to finish.
Seriously, this is the biggest project we've taken on so far. There's a TON of work ahead here. But I am really looking forward to seeing how God blesses it.

So, here's a little excerpt of the raw, unedited, unpolished script we've put together so far, for your amusement/enjoyment. It's actually not the physical SCRIPT but it is in the script file so I think it counts as behind-the-scenes material. ;) There are two main families in Fugitive, the Harpers, and the Langstons.

Today, you get the description of one of the main characters between the two families.

Griffin Harper Oldest brother, of the Harper kids. He is forced to take the leader position among the two families during their antics of survival.  Is naturally decisive and organized, but tends to be insensitive and rash if he is not careful. Struggles with Rene’s(his sister) feistiness, the two have always had tension between each other. Maybe at some point struggles with the burdens of leadership and responsibility? Or maybe he must learn to have responsibility throughout the film. Constantly burdened with worrying over the safety of the others, can tend to be overly fearful for their sakes and must learn to lean on his Creator.  Age 17

That's the simple little intro/bio we have for Griffin's character right now. More of his personality unfolds in the actual film script, which eventually, we will uncover to the world in the form of an epic, action/thriller/drama movie.

What did you think? Do you have any ideas for new films we can make in the meantime? You know we'd love to hear, if you do. ALSO we have a new blog button! You can find it on the sidebar. Go ahead and grab one if you want, post it on your blog, website, wherever. That would just make our day.

Happy Thursday!
