Call in to speak with the host
Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott McCausey interviews award winning filmographer and co-founder of Christianmovie.com, Rich Christiano.
In 1977, twin brothers Dave and Rich Christiano left their hometown of Waterloo, New York and drove out to Hollywood, California with high hopes and big dreams. Rich had written a high school script called The Valedictorian and was hoping this would lead to a career in Hollywood. After negotiations with a few producers and one contract offer, Rich never signed and the movie was never produced. Then something happened that changed the whole direction of the Christiano Brothers lives. They found Christ.
At age twenty-eight, in the summer of 1985, Dave wrote, produced, and directed his first film called The Daylight Zone. It was a Christian version of the old TV series, The Twilight Zone. Rich co-financed the project. Filmed in south Texas, the movie was shot on 16mm film and released by Christiano Brothers Films in the spring of 1986. The brothers opened a small office and they were off and running.
Today they have produced, written, and filmed numerous films. Movies like Time Changer, Unidentified, and The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry are at the core of what www.christianmovies.com is all about. Discover the importance of Christian, family movies though the strong testimony of Rich Christiano.
It's good to talk.
