Focus on Jesus Ministries Feature-Film Production

Focus on Jesus Ministries has recently produced the successful Christian television series, Completing Kaden, which is currently airing on JC-TV, Australian Christian Channel, ShineTV, and other television networks all around the world. The show has the potential of reaching millions of people for Christ, and can also be seen online at www.CompletingKaden.com for free. Additionally, Completing Kaden can be found at Amazon.com, ChristianCinema.com, Target.com, and other retailers across the United States.

For this summer of 2008, Focus on Jesus Ministries has teamed up with Real Bean Entertainment, LLC and The Connection (a church in Vancouver, Canada) to produce a feature-length film entitled The Scarf. The Scarf is a diverse, character-driven, action/adventure film with a hint of Sci-Fi. When compared to other known movies and shows, think of it as Signs meets Buffy with a hint of X-Files and a lot of Christ.

The Scarf will be shot in High Definition using professional production equipment and will be produced to the highest quality obtainable. Using a completely volunteer cast and crew, The Scarf will begin principle photography in July of 2008 and will wrap in August of 2008. The movie is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2008.

The Scarf has a total production budget of just under $25,000. This $25,000 movie will be released on international television, DVD, and also has the potential of a limited theatrical release. That's a lot of people that one movie can reach for a mere $25,000. Additionally, half of all DVDs replicated for The Scarf will be given away for free to people who do not know Christ as an additional outreach. For example, if 1,000 DVDs are made, 500 of those will be given out for free as an outreach. If 10,000 DVDs are made, 5,000 will be given out for free as an outreach.

The Scarf has a powerful message about prayer and will, in a very natural way, share Christ and Biblical principles with the viewers. This movie has a potential of reaching millions and millions of people. And you have the opportunity to invest in the lives of those people who will be touched by The Scarf.
