  • CFDb Interview with Jenn Gotzon

    CFDb Interviews Jenn Gotzon ~ Actress = > How did you know you were meant to be an actress and at what age? My passion sparked boldly in my soul when I was a teenager. I remember going to our local movie theater in Northampton, PA called The Roxy and would walk out after the credits of an inspirational movie with tears in my eyes and a fire in my gut that I wanted to do ‘that’. Once I got professional training and matured into adulthood, I realized what ‘that’ was: to play complex protagonist characters who find hope, truth and life in the climax of the film for the sole purpose to impact and inspire audiences that they...

  • CFDb Interview with John Schneider

    CFDb Interviews John Schneider ~ Actor/Director What was the first faith based film you acted in and why? I have done many. The first one was ‘Come the Morning‘.  I’m happy to say that they are getting really good these days. I believe that Paul White had a lot to do with the change in quality of the faith based film.   John Schneider as Sam Doonby   What criteria do you use to make the decision to act in a film? I like a good story, well told, that is crafted as a puzzle of some kind. I like to figure out films and be fooled only to learn that I was right after all. I guess you...

  • CFDb Interview with Rusty Whitener

    CFDb Interviews Rusty Whitener ~ Actor/Writer = > When and how did you acting career begin? I went to the American Academy of Dramatic Art in New York City when I was in my early twenties and worked as a professional stage actor for a couple years.  But I did not act in film until I got an agent in Nashville in 2010 and, on the strength of some good headshots and some good auditions, I got two quick roles in two movies, “Alone Yet Not Alone” and “Decision.”  My work in “Alone” ended up on the cutting room floor, but my role in “Decision” was a lead role as Natalie Grant’s dad. “Decision” was the GMC-TV “Movie of...

    CFDb Interviews Leo Pacheco ~ Founder/CSO of Lions Crest Group & Writer/Director of “Rain”   = > Share with us more about yourself and how you first got involved in the entertainment industry? I have always had an interest in the entertainment industry, and come from a musically talented family.  When I was in college, I interviewed Irby Mandrell, father/manager of country superstar Barbara Mandrell, and we hit it off.  After about a 3-hour conversation, Irby asked if I would be interested in interning with his management company by helping him promote Barbara and her sisters in the western region of the United States. Frankly, Irby was just a really wonderful man with a heart of gold, and I...

  • CFDb Interview with Harris III

    CFDb Interviews Harris III ~ Master Illusionist/Actor => Please tell us a little about your background and how you became an illusionist? When I was 9 years old, I received a magic set for Christmas from my grandmother.  Magic wasn’t something I was interested in, and I certainly didn’t ask for the magic set.  Shortly after (out of boredom), I performed my first trick for my mom and dad.  They responded with amazement, and I was hooked! By the next year or two, I’d learned enough tricks to put together my first show.  By the time I was half way through my teenage years, I was traveling full-time and performing close to 100 shows a year, in churches, cruise...

  • CFDb Interview with Chris Hanks

    CFDb Interviews Chris Hanks ~ Writer = > When did you know you wanted to become a Scriptwriter? I knew I wanted to become a screenwriter when I visited my first movie set of a film called The Harvest by Jefferson Donald, that’s when I got excited and said I can do this.   = > Is it difficult having more than one Scriptwriter on a film?  Please explain. No, it’s not. I think the more writers you have the betters the script will be, because you get to hear the other person’s ideas and feedback and that makes the script better.   = > Please tell us a little bit about ‘Demon Hunters’. Demon Hunters is a series about...

    CFDb Interviews Tanika Edmonds ~ Actress/Singer/Songwriter => Tell us a little bit about your background and how you knew you wanted to work in the faith based film industry? Since the age of 12 I’ve performed on stage winning the local State and County Fair talent shows.  As a teenager, I modeled for “Shades of Elegance” in Indianapolis and I modeled in the Bronner Brother Fashion Shows in Atlanta.   After winning the 1st Runner Up in the “Miss Indiana Black Expo Pageant”, things slowed down for me, until I auditioned for the Dramatic Gospel Stage Play “Momma You’ve Let Us See Too Much” by Victory Through Vision Production.  I got the lead role and my first acting performance was...

  • CFDb Interview with CFDb Interviews Katie Breidenbach

    CFDb Interviews Katie Breidenbach ~ Director/Producer/Editor = > When and how did you know you wanted to get involved in the film industry? My involvement in the film industry actually began with my love of CS Lewis books. After devouring his Space Trilogy and Till We Have Faces in high school, I re-discovered The Chronicles of Narnia shortly before Disney and Walden Media adapted The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe into a film. As I watched every special feature that I could get my hands on, I began to realize that a career in the film industry would not only be serious, but extremely influential. Slowly, it was revealed that my desire to touch lives was actually a...

  • CFDb Interview with Jaylin Murry

    CFDb Interviews Jaylin Murry ~ Actor & 2013 AMTC Shine Event Overall Male Teen Actor Winner When and how did you know you wanted to become an actor? I knew when I was in 6th grade that I wanted to become an actor. The reason I wanted to be an actor is because I was told that I was really good at acting and that I should audition for movies when I was in school and church plays.   Is there an actor that has inspired you to want to get involved in acting? Yes there is and his name is Cameron Boyce and he plays the role of Luke on the Disney show Jessie. I feel like the...
