Beyond the Mask Movie

Burns Family Studios, maker of one of my favorite movies, Pendragon: Sword of His Father, recently announced a new feature-length film, Beyond the Mask. I was very excited about it, and best of all: it is set in my favorite century, the 18th century! This description is from their website.

This story is an action-fused historic adventure, set in the international turmoil of the mid 1770's. Running for his life, an East India Company assassin buried his past in a quiet English village, assuming the mantle of an Anglican priest. But this disguise won't last for long when a woman he loves and a war he no longer wants force him to confront the question of who he really is. In the face of a looming global conflict, he discovers for himself the meaning and source of true justification and freedom.

Fundamentally this is a story about where we find our identity. Each of us asks, why am I special, why is my work significant, who am I, and why should people respect me. The answers we find to these questions define how we live our lives. At Burns Family Studios, we believe that the greatest story ever told is the good-news of Jesus Christ--that the human condition to prove oneself over and over by performing to the critics doesn't iimpress God, and He accepts us in His Son, in-spite of, not because of, our best efforts. With this unmerited acceptance comes the only sure foundation for life.

All movies need funding, and Burns Family Studios has launched a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter. They need $20,000 by August 31. Please pray for Burns Family Studios, and consider supporting them financially.

P.S. Check out their trailers on Kickstarter!
