Telling our good stories from the past of our country and ancestry keeps our nation and faith strong. The confidence that comes from hearing the stories of heroes is beyond measure when instilled in our children’s minds and hearts.
Industrious Family Films is dedicated to telling these stories through the movies we make and the pages you find on this site. Our motto is: Reclaiming the art of filmmaking one wholesome movie at a time.
On this site you will find not only good stories, but also become an insider on our filmmaking projects. We share tidbits on our sets, props, costumes as well as introduce you to our cast!
As Catholics, we who have the greatest masterpiece in the world, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in a way, own, or have rights to, the word “art”. Christian civilization has made music, dramas, plays and paintings.
Sadly, in recent years, this art has gotten out of our control, especially in the movies that pour out of Hollywood. The stories told are filled with filth and sin.
It is interesting to note that moviemakers know that we want movies that tell good stories. Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ was the most watched movie in the whole world in the whole history of moviemaking. The most watched, the most successful, and in my opinion, the greatest movie ever made.
Did you know that Hollywood would not back the movie and Icon Productions was its sole supporter? But directors and producers keep feeding us mud. They don’t want us to love wholesomeness, but we do. We can’t help it.
Children’s cinema is a genre all of its own. “Unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 18:3) We can change the movie making industry because of the children who we surround ourselves with.
These children still have a sense of good because they retain have their baptismal innocence. They have not yet seen all that the world has to offer because their parents have guarded and protected them.
Because of this innocence they inherit the tools that it takes to present the Faith to a post-Christian society. We must be converted, become like children, and enjoy wholesome, Catholic movies, entertainment and good stories. We must inspire and be inspired by the innocence and wholesomeness of Catholic children’s cinema.
We need to spur on this innocence in children as a Christian victory over the corruptness of Hollywood. In this way we are encouraging our youth to rebuild the culture of art, drama, film and entertainment for the greater glory of God.
Many Catholics all over America have seen the need this country is in reforming better movies. This is the mission of Industrious Family Films. These moviemakers must encourage each other and inspire one another and together they will make a new Hollywood.
Let’s call it “Holywood”.
Most major motion pictures have multi million dollar budgets. As we wrote our first proposal, we realized how quickly a budget can get into the thousands of dollars.
Costumes, props, and distributing--not to mention feeding and housing a cast, all cost money.
In the industry, an ultra low budget film is any film under $300,000. All that said, we need a little help. You can help us make Catholic family films by donating. Pay it forward today!
Outlaws Of Ravenhurst is a movie about persecuted the Catholics during the 17th century in Scotland. It reminds us of our past and encourages us to hope in the future, come what may. Read more about Outlaws of Ravenhurst...
