Zombie Doomsday (2011)
This live action, improvisational style movie was filmed in just 12 hours and is sure to delight Zombie fans around the world.
Zombie Doomsday is more of an actual live scenario than a low budget independent feature film. It's a very intriguing look at what would happen if there was an actual Zombie outbreak.
The concept was developed two weeks before filming and on set production was completed in under 12 hours. The actors were put in a restaurant understanding that a down on his luck movie star was coming back to his hometown to film a reality show. We then set up real events (unknown ahead of time to the actors) that would help carry the story. Some events turned out scary to them while other events were comedic. This film is part "Zomedy," and part scary movie.
Mr. Civil Rights: Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP (2014)
From PBS - Civil rights attorney Thurgood Marshall's triumph in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision to desegregate America's public schools completed the final leg of an heroic journey to end legal segregation. For 20 years, during wartime and the Depression, Marshall had traveled hundreds of thousands of miles through the Jim Crow South of the United States, fighting segregation case by case, establishing precedent after precedent, all leading up to one of the most important legal decisions in American history. Along the way, he escaped the gun of a Dallas sheriff, was pursued by the Ku Klux Klan on Long Island, hid in bushes from a violent mob in Detroit, and even survived his own lynching. In this impossible environment, Thurgood Marshall won more Supreme Court cases than any lawyer in American history, and set the stage for the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Marshall, who went on to become the first black Supreme Court justice in 1967, made the work of civil rights pioneers like the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks possible, by laying the groundwork to end legal segregation and changing the American legal landscape.

A Note from the Filmmaker:
2007 was an amazing year to make a film. We were a part of the first major wave of independent filmmakers to use affordable DV technology to make a movie on our own terms. We were floored by the amount of support we got. Yet once the film was completed, we hit a wall. After some misguided attempts to get into huge festivals, we floundered. The framework we have today for self-distribution simply didn't exist then. We were at a loss as to how to get the film out there. And to be blunt, producing our first self-financed feature ($52,000 - not a misprint) turned out to be a backbreaker. We edited a staggering amount of footage and came up with exciting results - we had a warm, funny, awkward slice of New York life during the holidays. But our wonderful film had nowhere to go

A farcical adaptation of the Grimm tale, "King Thrushbeard." A haughty, spoiled young lady learns humility and empathy through the love of a clever suitor.
"This American adaptation updates the European fairy tale King Thrushbeard to 1815 and relocates the story to Federalist Virginia. In this edition of the well-produced From the Brothers Grimm series, the wealthy heroine (Veanne Cox of Disney's live-action Cinderella) is a mean-spirited snob who insults the admirers handpicked by her hopeful father, calling one "Bristlelip" in reference to his mustache. This haughtiness comes to an end when she is tricked into marrying this suitor disguised as a peddler. Impoverished and reduced to work as a kitchen maid, she comes to respect her husband, à la Kate in Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. Only this "Kate" learns her humbling lesson in a mere 18 minutes. (Ages 5 and older)" -- Amazon review by Kimberly Heinrichs

The Marks of a Cult: A Biblical Analysis (2006)
In today's religiously diverse and relativistic culture, labeling a group a cult may seem extreme to many people, not to mention rude. Even people who believe in absolute Truth and further believe that Jesus is the only way to eternal life can get confused about just what constitutes real Christianity. Just why are Baptists properly considered Christians, but Mormons are not? Or why is the Jehovah's Witness religion classified as an anti-Christian cult while Presbyterians or Wesleyans or Pentecostals are simply seen as denominations within the Christian faith?
With the explosion of different sects that claim to honor and follow Jesus, how does one differentiate between true Biblical Christianity and an aberrant religious movement? Just what are "the marks of a cult?"
Join us for a journey into the heart of Biblical revelation and the constant struggle of truth against lies, the apostolic faith against the "doctrines of demons."

The film also includes some of our finest entrepreneurs sharing how they worked with these venture capitalists to grow world-class companies like Intel, Apple, Cisco, Atari, Genentech, Tandem and others. Beginning in the late 1950s, this small group of high rollers fostered a one-of-a-kind business culture that encouraged extraordinary risk and made possible unprecedented rewards. They laid the groundwork for America's start-up economy, providing not just the capital but the guidance to allow seedling companies to reach their full potential. Our lives would be dramatically different without the contributions that these venture capitalists made to the creation of PCs, the Internet and life-saving drugs.

Wings of Silver: The Vi Cowden Story (2010)
When the country needed every man, she answered the call. They weren't formally recognized, received no military benefits - many Americans don't even know that they exist - yet today, women's place in this country might be very different if Vi Cowden, and the 1,073 other women like her, hadn't been willing to do the job they did. And they did it because their country needed them. A story of triumph and inspiration over adversity, Vi and her fellow Women Airforce Service Pilots (W.A.S.P.) were not only crucial to the war effort during World War II, they also changed the course of Women's history. Vi was among the first women in the United States to fly military planes. She ferried fighter planes (including her favorite, the P-51 Mustang) from the factories to the air bases where they were desperately needed. She flew enough trips with the WASP to have circumnavigated the world 55 times. In this documentary she tells her story from humble beginnings in a sod house in the Black Hills of South Dakota where she learned to fly biplanes, to flying fighter planes for the Army Air Corps in 1943 & Flying 19 different types of aircraft, she has been an inspiration to many, including one male fighter pilot afraid to fly the P-47 Thunderbolt, until he saw her take-off in one. In 2009, Vi and the other surviving WASP received the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian honor that Congress can bestow.

Rebellion of Thought (2006)
What is post-modernism? How has it affected our culture? How will it impact our future? What is the role of the Christian church in a post-modern world? Does man truly need God or is God merely a fairytale idea left-over from a past cultural experiment? These questions are the launching point for Rebellion of Thought, as filmmakers, The Brothers Williamson examine a new generation that refuse to accept authority, code and convention. They probe the impact and consequences of such thinking both for the church and society. So, in the midst of all this, how do believers in Christ express their faith in a compelling, relevant way? What does it mean to love your neighbor as yourself? Parents, educators, small group leaders and Christian churches ignore the questions raised in Rebellion of Thought at their own peril. Without this critical examination, the result of post-modernism will bankrupt future generations in the years to come. Featuring these experts who take a critical look at the role of authentic Christian faith in a post-modern culture: Angus Menuge (Chair of Philosophy - Concordia University), D.A. Carson (Prof. Of New Testament - Trinity Evangelical Divinity School), Jim Spiegel (Professor of Philosophy - Taylor University), Bruce Ellis Benson (Assoc. Prof. Of Philosophy - Wheaton College), Gene Edward Veith, Jr. (Culture Editor - World Magazine) They don't just dance around the edges of this mind-splitting phenomenon.

Abby Someone, Inner Surge, Joniqa, Mixtapes for Girlfriends, Stereovolt, West of Verona, Audrey Hatcher Woodams and others are featured, with the entire video's soundtrack available separately on the DVD extras.
