Audiences Want Movies That Inspire

Mass media and the big entertainment conglomerates want to corrupt the minds of children throughout the world. Audiences are rejecting such films.

Recent developments prove that movies can be distributed to theaters all across the world independent of Hollywood. Big names and people of influence have taken a stand and have said "No" to the corruption in the film industry. We are adding our voice to theirs and helping build the parallel entertainment movement.

Technology and an ever increasing public outcry are on our side. God's hand is on this movement and we know that telling stories changes hearts.

At Industrious Family all we do is for the greater glory of God, and we are confident that He will bless our moviemaking endeavors.

Our next project is the full-length film FABIOLA based on the novel by Nicholas Patrick Cardinal Wiseman - who said it best, "may the Church, in her days of peace and of victories, never forget what she owes to the age of her martyrs...we are indebted to it."

We have not forgotten and are bringing this touching story to life in our next full length film.

Join The Adventure Of This Timely Tale Of The Catacombs As It Comes To Life On The Big Screen

Now is the time for stories like FABIOLA to be told. Now more than ever we have the chance to reclaim the art of story telling through cinema, the most powerful media in the world.

As earlier stated we don't need giant corrupt conglomerates to get our movies distributed on a large scale but we do need funding. A FABIOLA pilot is the first step to getting funded and we are busy working away at filming our torch and using it to get funding for the full film.

How You Can Make A Movie That's Appeasing Not Only To The Eye But Also The Soul

Of course many young people in our audience want to make movies of their own and we want to share this art with you. We have written a 16 lesson e-course for beginner filmmakers called the Movie Production Guide.

This guide takes you step by step through pre-production, production and post production so you and your children can start your own movie project taking family fun to the next level.

Learn how to write a setting that works, how to lift content from books legally, create a project budget, tackle stage fright, and even how to apply a natural makeup look for stage and screen. Once post-production is complete, celebrate your project by throwing an Old-Hollywood-inspired premiere party!

Keep in mind that your first movies do not need to be full length with all the exciting costumes and sets. Start small.

Our first few films were all short films. In addition to our kids' historical shorts, you can watch our shorts about the life of a saint for inspiration on the how simple your first films can be. We are currently expanding a section on comedy where you can view our comedy shorts as well as learn a little grammar.

Our Film Festivals provide opportunities for you to submit your films, get constructive criticism on your films, and watch other independent films!

Telling Enduring Stories
Is An Important Element
Of Reclaiming Christian Art

Not long ago, Archbishop Viganó called on Catholics to reclaim and rebuild Christian art, something that has been mostly stolen and destroyed. 

The “New Evangelization” is nothing new but actually Catholic Action. Popes all throughout the ages have called on Catholics to practice Catholic Action.

We are fulfilling that call by making wholesome entertainment in the moviemaking industry.

It's the same effort, we're just using new means.

Good stories allow you to enjoy true family fun while eliminating all the fuss that comes with sanitizing Hollywood productions by watching our always captivating, never preachy movies. The inspiration for these films springs from our deeply rooted Catholic values and beliefs.

Good stories from history come alive in our movies. Children love learning from these heroes of our past.

Why we are breathing life into good stories so that our children gain
confidence by relating to the past.

We're not the only ones creating positive entertainment.

We love movies and want to let you know what other movies we recommend watching. Our family movie guide provides reviews for dozens of good movies for movie night. We also have scoured the internet to bring you independent films produced by other Christian movie makers.
