Because we don’t have enough Kirk Cameron movies to choose from, Cameron has teamed with Liberty University to partner in a new film venture. The topic? He’s going to “answer life’s toughest questions about human suffering.”
“You’re making some big kingdom moves to produce Champions for Christ and send them into the culture,” he told Falwell. “That’s what I want to do, and so we’re likeminded in that way. I want to make films that represent Gospel values, I want to impact families, I want to impact culture.”
I have to admit he certainly has impacted culture. Whether that impact is positive or negative is yet to be determined.
“You’re using your platform as an actor to answer those questions, because I think there are so many young people who will listen to you, who will watch the new movie you’re making that wouldn’t go to church, that wouldn’t sit in a Christian school classroom,” Falwell said. “I think you’re touching people who can’t be reached any other way … that’s why we decided to help you with it. We’re just so impressed and proud of what you’re doing that we want to help.”
Because, generally speaking, Christian films represent the epitome of production value, it’s a good thing he’s teaming with Liberty.
“You’ve got a full-blown film school that blows away most post-production and film production facilities. I’ve been there; you’ve got mixing equipment, and you’ve got sound stages, and you’ve got theaters and you’ve got cameras that people drool over having. If you’re a film student and you’re looking for a university to go to to break into Hollywood without losing your soul, Liberty University is the place you need to look to.”
This should be interesting and I wait with bated breath for what should prove to be an unbiased piece of… work.
