Christian Movie Connect Episode 76 - Joseph Simpkins
Joseph Simpkins is the Founder and President of Living Water Films, a production company with the vision to produce “edgy” films that provide spiritual nourishment and healing for the nations as well as high quality films that reach beyond the walls of the church. A professionally trained actor from San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre, Joseph studied with former Broadway director and actor from the famous Actors Studio, Bill Silverman. He has also worked in the special mechanical effects area on such TV shows as “Dawson’s Creek”, “Nash Bridges” and “The X-Files”. With a career spanning 20 years in the entertainment industry, Joseph is beyond passionate in his calling to illustrate stories through the performing arts, including his films, “Fatal Flaw”, “The Choice” and “Adrenaline” which is due for release in 2014.
In this interview, Simpkins talks with CMC host, Cheryl Ariaz Wicker, about how his love for racing has played a part in bringing a message of hope through film.
“Adrenaline” is the story of a street racer who gets into an accident and becomes partially paraplegic. While in the hospital, he’s given a new hope his life is not over and that it has a purpose.
