Filmmaker Tracy J. Trost continues to produce inspiring movies

While at the 2012 National Religious Broadcasters Convention, Cheryl Ariaz Wicker caught up with President and Founder of Trost Moving Pictures, Tracy J Trost. With more than 20 years experience of television production, he decided to fulfill a dream of branching into filmmaking and has already had tremendous success. Trost Moving Pictures is located in Tulsa, OK and is making a name for itself with high quality, redeeming films. Tracy is an easy going, down-to-earth kind of guy who is easy to talk to and extremely likeable.

Tracy Trost already had a successful business with Trost Consulting when he decided to branch out into the world of filmmaking. He states that his impetus to do so began at age of 44 when his staff was reading a book which asked the question, "If you could be anything you wanted to be, do what you wanted to do, what would that one thing be?" He realized the answer for himself was filmmaking. So he began reading, writing, and studying and in 2009, he cowrote, produced, and directed "Find Me."

While his films are not as overtly "Christian" as some of the faith-based films on the market, they are strong stories with good values. Trost states that "All films have a message, and we are a generation that is affected by the messages we see and hear. Our films tell stories that are based on positive, Biblical messages that can make an impact on the viewer." "A Christmas Snow" (Muse Watson, Catherine Mary Stewart, Cameron ten Napel), which also had a very successful run in Branson as a stage play, contains a very strong message about the power of forgiveness and letting go of past hurts and anger.

Trosts' most recent film, "The Lamp" (Jason London, Meredith Salenger, Cameron ten Napel, Lou Gossett Jr.), is a healing story of hope and overcoming loss. Both of these films are currently out on DVD and on Netflix. "A Christmas Snow" had a lot of airtime on networks such as TBN, CTN, and Daystar and Trost is currently in negotiations over the television rights to broadcast "The Lamp."
