Christian Movie Connect Episode 66 – George Escobar
George Escobar is the Founder of Advent Film Group and Advent Filmmakers, an independent Christian film production company and organization dedicated to raise up a new generation of filmmakers. Prior to founding Advent, George was Vice President of Product Development for Discovery and Executive Director for AOL/Time Warner. With over 20 years of experience in film, television, and interactive media, George holds seven U.S. patents in technology and user-interface design. He has also worked with top executives in the industry including Howard Stringer (Sony CEO), Sandy Grushow and David Grant (Fox), Kit Laybourne (TELE-TV), and Kim Friedman (TV director). His latest film, “Alone Yet Not Alone” is due for theatrical release in the spring of 2013.
In this interview, Escobar talks with CMC host, Cheryl Ariaz Wicker, about how actors with personal
faith in Jesus have a great impact in portraying roles within faith-based films.
“Alone Yet Not Alone” is the true story of two young sisters who are carried away by a band of Allegheny warriors during the French-Indian War in the mid-18th century. Driven by their faith in God and the powerful bonds of family, the sisters hold firmly to the belief that they are never alone, even in their darkest hour, and that they will be reunited again.
