MY JOURNEY TO PARADISE
The story of how one young boy faced all odds to journey to a far away land and found peace at last. Heng Lim grew up in Cambodia at the worst time in that countries history. Great changes came to his family that began a saga that would see his father and many of his family perish. We are praying for a "called" and true Executive Producer who will champion this amazing story. When the right financier steps up to the plate, this documentary will be on the front burner for the team.

In 1998, with the birth of terror from Osama bin Ladin, the Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya was bombed literally twenty minutes apart from the Embassy in Tanzania; destroying countless lives forever.
Among the thousands injured or killed, Ellen was found in the rubble with her face, eyes and torso emaciated with shards of glass and debris; almost losing her life.
Ellen's brother, Nick Karas was waiting at Walter Reed National Military Center when Ellen arrived. Nick is one who has always been by his sister's side!
Her inspiration and "light" moved Journalist, Ted Koppel and Secretary of State, Madeline Albright to learn more about her epic story of tragedy into triumph, leading ABC Nightline to create a series of four episodes with Ted Koppel and Ellen herself. Invited to be the executive producer, Ellen's brother, Nick, along with his son, Aristotle Karas, plus Glenn Brown, directed and produced this moving drama series; honoring Ellen as a national survivor of the bombing.
Thirty-two surgeries later, the world has been greatly impacted by her story.
Coming up on twenty years since the blast, there is no better time for Ellen's incredible journey to be told through the power of film.

A NEW MINISTRY IS BORN - What Tom Stewart experienced in his early childhood, was tragic and his wife Rene' felt drawn to tell his story with boldness and courage. A Scoutmaster horribly abused him as no child should ever have to endure. What followed in the next ten years of death threats and more ended up and created a landmark case in the Supreme Court exposing predators. The battle was won there, but there are children still in trouble due to the lack of controls and protection in the scouting programs and other children supervised organizations where predators are near. This is an opportunity for you to do something about it. Go to secretsknots.net and see for yourself the power of what it means to find healing.
SAND IN TUSCANY is a new feature film nestled in two worlds. Lorretta Segars mother was from Tuscany and she was a War Bride from WWII. She met her husband Fred in the military theater of the Italian front and from this remarkable story, comes this feature film. Jimmy Segars was a combat wounded Viet Nam veteran who gallantly also served his nation. We salute great Americans who have served so faithfully on foreign soil so that we can be free. At the beginning of this epic and wonderful story is a love story unlike we have not seen in decades. This family has a deep faith in our Lord and their dream to build something beautiful from the hills of Sand Mountain in Alabama have all of us captured and our imaginations challenged. Kirk is our new Co-Executive Producer on this project and is an amazing financial leader in Huntsville taking on this challenge. Please keep this entire family in your prayers as we begin the amazing journey of creating a world class screenplay! VMFA welcomes the Segars family to our arsenal of films!
