A film executive calls for Hollywood to start producing more films with “wholesome positive messages.”
In a recent “The Church Boys” podcast, Greg Gudorf, the CEO of Pure Flix Digital, said, “There’s been a resurgence of faith and family oriented programming. People want that.”
Pure Flix Digital is a subscription video-on-demand service from Pure Flix Entertainment, a Christian film production company, which brought blockbuster hits such as the 2014 film “God’s Not Dead.”
The film executive also laments that over a half century ago, viewers didn’t have to worry about watching a film that was violent or did not have a positive message.
“You could watch whether you were 5 years old or 95 years old … The amount of violence and other things that Hollywood has turned to in the name of entertainment and the impact that has and on our culture is really astounding — and it can be tracked,” he said.
