Default Alternative Movie Production/Distribution: Advent Film Group

Homeschoolers Launch Alternative to Film School and Hollywood

Contact: George Escobar, 540-751-0518

MEDIA ADVISORY, Feb. 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- Advent Film Group (AFG), a new film company founded by homeschoolers recently completed "pickup" filming of their first movie, "Come What May" in Purcellville, Virginia. The movie has garnered wide attention because it features Patrick Henry College (PHC), a national powerhouse in debate and moot court competition. The movie centers on two PHC students who battle to overturn Roe v. Wade at the National Moot Court Championship. They are coached by Dr. Michael Farris, the real-life founder and Chancellor of PHC and a high-profile homeschooling advocate. This is the first of five movies planned by Advent.

With a cast/crew of 40 homeschooled students led by film professionals, AFG's movies are similar to "Facing The Giants" in scale, budget, and aspirations. AFG's national network of supporters, now several hundred homeschooling families strong (and growing); will help promote the film's release in late Spring 2008.

Homeschooled students and their parents, interested in rebuilding culture for Christ in cinema, have sought out AFG as an alternative to film school. "This fulfills part of AFG's mission," says Ex-Discovery executive and AFI producing fellow George Escobar, a homeschooling dad. "We are training students who will one-day direct big-budget films with moral integrity and fidelity to a biblical worldview."

Unlike film schools where students pay large tuitions to make short or student films, AFG productions are feature-length from the start, giving the completed film immediate market value. AFG actually pays college students a small stipend even as they are trained, earn professional credits, and receive profit-participation points.

Escobar explains, "We're doing this because film schools aren't working sufficiently for Christian filmmakers." Escobar claims, "The status-quo is clearly broken, otherwise big-budget faith-based or Christian-authored movies like 'Amazing Grace' or 'Narnia' would be directed by Christian directors, unless you finance the film yourself as Mel Gibson had to do for 'Passion of the Christ.'"

AFG is also building a movie distribution system from within the homeschooling, pro-life/pro-family communities. Rather than sharing film revenues strictly with traditional distributors, AFG seeks to channel movie revenue into Christian and family-based organizations. Escobar remarks: "Homeschoolers have already successfully turned the public education monopoly upside down; we will now do the same in cinema production and distribution."

This is real revolution: a direct kick in the nuts to the Christian-hating anti-White jews of Hollywood.

This Farris fellow is no friend to race-thinkers, believe me. He is Founder of the powerful HSLDA that has monopolized home-schooling for 25 years, and makes it clear that he and his HSLDA plan to "impact the world "for Christ and for Liberty," in that order.

Homeschoolers for Ron Paul tend to put Liberty and their parental rights ahead of Mikey's mythical Pale Jew. As a matter of fact, they loathe Mike Farris for endorsing Rev Huck for no other reason than that Huck is a Xian minister.

Regardless of his motives, Farris has done yeoman work to help White families.

1) no one can monopolize homeschooling by the very nature of the thing.

2) it is thanks to Farris that HS is even legal. Homeschooling was illegal in 45 states when he formed HSLDA was formed in 1983.

3) it appears to me from extensive reading that the vast majority of HS are WHITE Christian White conservatives with large families - very often they have four to ten children.

4) a single letter or phone call from HSLDA can get the kikenSystem to back off - that's real power

5) the HS is an organic revolution: graduates have their own newsletters and state network; they have their own college (Patrick Henry); they have just founded a film production company, Advent, and are building their own distribution network

These conservatives Christians are doing what Whites only dream about. Or at least, they are doing on a massive and growing scale what we are doing only in bits and pieces.

It is not going too far to say that a full-blown political revolution could come out of the homeschooling movement. These people have already rejected the System in a non-rhetorical way. Their kids are smarter than average, more driven than average, and they're graduating from the best colleges. They have like minds, and many are going to law school precisely to challenge the anti-Christian infrastructure the jews have built.

Amazing what a determined few can accomplish. Why aren't we doing the same? With the exception of Byron Jost, no one seems to be interested in creating pro-White film. Such an opportunity for agitprop we are missing. Maybe some day before it becomes too late, we can put aside petty differences and organize something on this scale.

Technical breakthroughs that allow professional movies to be made more cheaply than ever:

Despite some worthy criticisms I think it's a step in the right direction. Anything critical and oppositional to current Jewish media and mindset is a good thing.

For a low budget movie the trailer makes it look good. I'm interested in seeing it.

This certainly could be used as a template to start a white nationalist movie production. I think Byron Jost has already made progress in this direction. I'd like to see more from him.
