Germane Productions' Project : Dialtone

Germane Productions is an independant Christian film company that is currently shooting a film called Project: Dialtone.

According to their official site, the story is as follows:
What do a mysterious phone, a missing lawyer and an abandoned warehouse have in common?
They all help tell a story about Greg Pleasant, a lawyer who’s held back from leading the dynamic life Christ wants him to live because he fears man’s opinion of him more than God’s.

Greg loses the control he believes he has over his life, when an odd client tells him about an old phone that calls 2 days back into the past. Greg’s journey, along with some good advice from an unlikely source, help him die to his former self and transform his life into an exciting walk with God that is unhindered by the fear of man and this world."

Sounds interesting. I sure think that Christian sci-fi needs something besides post-rapture wish-fulfillment fantasies(don't you want to be Mad Max, but on God's side?), so this is a welcome change.

The reason I found this is because they are raising money for their film directly on their site. A bit unusual, but independent films need financing from somewhere. They've raised $600 so far, so they're doing pretty well.

Thanks for the post! As the producer of Dialtone I am encouraged by the word of mouth support we received from sites like yours.

Dialtone was our first project and took us about 8 months and 10K to make. Now it's available at Netflix and Family Christian Bookstores nationwide.

Thanks again for your support!
