Another Church enters the feature film game with "How to Save a Life"

Following in the footsteps of Sherwood Baptist Church (Facing the Giants, Flywheel, upcoming Fireproof), Summer Grove Baptist Church (considering building a film studio, I have an email out to them for an update), and Voice of Pentecost Church (the ill-fated Shadow of Joseph, which I also have an email out for updates), New Song Community Church in Oceanside, CA is producing a feature length film entitled How to Save a Life.  

The film deals with teen suicide, teen pregnency and various other teenage troubles.  The film will be the directing debut of cinematographer Brian Baugh, who SuperCandid fans might remember was the cinematographer of The Ultimate Gift.

No word on when this will be finished, so we'll have to wait and see.  They are discussing "distribution options" with various companies, so it looks like the whole theatrical/DVD issue isn't close to settled.  

Although I hope this is a good movie, the plot sounds rather like the old "After School Specials" about teenage issues.  If the writer is good enough to overcome the usual cliches, then this movie might have a chance.  I am confident it will at least look good, since the cinematography was one of the highlights of The Ultimate Gift.  Still no word on whether or not The Fray will contribute to the soundtrack.
