The film crew of Hearing Everett has been in Michigan, Santa Barbara and now back at the Ranch to film segments for the study guide that will accompany the Hearing Everett film. We are not only making an amazing movie that we hope will encourage and inspire people to step out and serve God, but also a 5 week study guide designed to be done by a small group, youth group, or family that will illustrate points in the film which can then be applied to the individual. The study guide will also contain 5 short 10 minute video testimonials from people who have been impacted in some way by Rancho Sordo Mudo and its ministry. And just like the film, quality and time is being invested in each video testimonial. There have been great interviews and shots of people working.
Nate Allman has signed on to the Hearing Everett movie. He is an up and coming singer out of Texas. His song "Unconditional" from the album "Dream for Free" produced by 540 records will be in the movie. To hear the song or find out more about Nate please go to http://www.myspace.com/nateallman
We are excited to have Nate on board with us.
Stay tuned for more developments...
