    Jan 29, 2016

    Coming Home Family,

    Please share the teaser trailer with everyone you know. Getting as many shares as possible means the most chances of success in getting the word out.

    We have a long road ahead of us to get this film prepared and good enough for theaters and everyone share counts.

    By the way, I have singed the theatrical distribution deal today. We have 95% of the theaters in America WORKING WITH THIS FILM. You read this right. When those become available, every person in America will have the power to put this film in their local theater!

    I have the have the film ready before tickets go on sale, but people can pre-order copies of the digital download or dvd at www.TheComingHomeMovie.com.

    Please share this link. It has the teaser trailer right on the front page.

    Let's help raise funds for mothers and children in need, together.

    Blessings to you all, Layne

  • Please Help Support a Nonprofit Christian Film Studio

    Dec 28, 2015

    (Please share this with as many of your friends and family.)

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    My name is Layne McDonald. I am the Founder of a Culture of Life (pro-life) nonprofit film studio ministry. This film studio is dedicated to Christian family movies that give funds to single parents and children in need. Everything, from the way we shoot films to distribute them is ground breaking. 

    Please read the rest of this letter, pray, and help us where you can.

    We have the ability to revolutionize film as a vehicle to fund Culture of Life efforts in America.

    At this time, it is important to note that it’s the end of the year. You can donate to this non-profit for tax deductions for this year, and your funds will help us make films that have the ability to save lives. 

    Blessings to you and your family and Happy New Years.

    Please read…

    We would like to offer you an unique way to give back, at the end of the year. Our nonprofit is the only Christian film studio that is a 501c3, offers volunteers a full free film school experience, and shares the funds raised from the films with culture of life ministries to help women and children in need.

    Will you please give to help us reach our goals?

    To learn about the uniqueness of our film studio and what it means to the Family of God, here is a testimony from our lead actor (Kregg Janke) in our upcoming movie, called Coming Home: 

    “Christians are increasingly being marginalized and silenced in our country. It's never more evident than during the Christmas season. People are pressured to say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" because there's a chance someone who doesn't believe in Christ may hear it and be forced to cower in their safe space, where no opposing ideas to their own are allowed to enter and possibly offend them. This small minority of delicate snowflakes has been able to systematically shut down freedom of speech in our once great land. In order for this to change, we Christians must begin by taking back the culture. I feel that well written and produced movies are a great weapon in the arsenal against progressivism. I'm humbled by the opportunity to play a tiny part in winning back the culture with this movie.”

    Every donor gets a 1) tax deduction for their gift, 2) a “Special Thanks” credit on the upcoming film, 3) the ability to "peek in" at the studio through exclusive emails, and 4) a peace of mind knowing that all the funds donated stay in the Body of Christ to help others in need.

    The studio needs $250,000 a year to operate and to shoot a film a year. This is for operation costs, office space, and film distribution. We can operate on this "low" budget because our actors and crew (even locations) are volunteer. We bless all the volunteers with Christian support and prayers, free film crew training while shooting, and world-wide distribution of their efforts, in hope of blessing them for their hard work in a ministry that gives back to those in need.

    This is a true film missionary field in America. Will you help us reach others with the Good News at theaters and in their homes?

    If you can help this holiday season, at the end of this wonderful year, we would greatly appreciate it. Everyone will get personal thank you letters from me, and ongoing news about the films, and updates on the wonderful people we help along the way. 

    We have secured national theatrical distribution, worldwide television, and major distribution. We will be available to over 85% of America when the film comes out.

    God is good.

    We need your help to change lives through the film we are making right now. Here are some sneak peek pictures of the film shooting through January, in Collierville, Tennessee:

    P.S. - Again, please share this letter with everyone you believe could help us financially, at the end of 2015. We need to get the studio fully off the ground. Business owners, Churches, and major companies could fully fund this ministry. Imagine a film studio that make Culture of Life films to raise funds for families in need every year. Imagine the healing we could see in Memphis and in America. Please help. Thank you. Happy New Years.

  • What this film is REALLY about...

    Dec 17, 2015

    Friends,

    During this season of Christmas; during the time we are shooting the first part of our film, it is a great time to focus on what really matters: Christ, Family, and those in need.

    The photo (above) is in the main sanctuary of the Church where we are shooting. This iconic image is what this film, Coming Home, is all about: 1) Jesus (hanging for our sins), 2) Mary (his early mother) on the left, and 3) Joseph (his early adopted father) on the right. 

    This film is about our faith and what we are willing to do for our families.

    I usually think about the love of our Savior and the strength of that endearing love that drove him tot he cross. I meditate on His willingness to do what his Father commanded, beyond what he wanted to do Himself ("not my will, but yours").

    Then, we read how he rose from the grave and commanded us to do for our families what He did for the world. Powerful words, because that means if we are willing to die for each other, then being a good parent, son, daughter, husband, wife, grandparent, father, or mother... isn't a big deal.

    It has to do with our focus in life; God before myself.

    I would like to thank all the actors and everyone involved with this film. I pray that this story touches the hearts of many and helps to re-focus families back to their faith and homes.

    Can you share this and help support our film?

    Please, pre-order the film and help support our ministry efforts for Christian films in Memphis. You won't see the funds come out of your account util the movie is release, and you will get a "Special Thanks Credit" on the film, special features from the movie as they are released, and much more.

    Blessings,
