The Making of Love's Abiding Joy

Here's something we don't see too much: Behind the Scenes footage of Christian film! Ok, I kid, because some films like Facing the Giants and Jonah had a plethora of behind the scenes features. But many, such as The Last Sin Eater, have almost nothing. And speaking of Micahel Landon Jr., that's what we're seeing today. Bill Reinhardt, the sound mixer on the Love's Abiding Joy series of films, has posted a home video from the set of Love's Abiding Joy over on LiveVideo.com It's standard on set footage, but interesting since we've seen almost nothing come out of these sets before. NOTE TO CHRISTIAN FILMMAKERS: This is the sort of thing that should be on your DVD! I find it funny that from my own experiences on movie sets, you have the same types of people show up in just about every movie shoot. Click here if the embeded video doesn't work.

You bring up a good point about many Christian filmmakers not utilizing the special features side of their dvds. What I think is happening is that some of these folks have very low budget productions so -- by showing behind the scenes it takes away from the illusion of promoting a bigger budget looking film. The other issue is they may feel guilt about appearing to focus too much on themselves and so they just want to go over there. But I believe there's a balance to it. And adding special features to a DVD is something audiences are interested in: How did you do that? Why did you do that? Watching the DVD special features are also very informative to learn how to be a better filmmaker.
