DOUGLASVILLE – The Church at Chapelhill in Douglasville, Georgia is releasing a brand-new holiday film entitled “Surrendered – The Story of Jay Harding”. The film was released this weekend December 17th and 18th at the church’s facility and is free to the public.
The film was shot in the West Atlanta area in September & October of 2011, and was completed by members of the church. All of the cast and crew were volunteers.
During a week this past August, the film was written by Brett Divine who also produced, directed, and edited the feature. A cast and crew was assembled through volunteers in the church and production began on September 23rd, 2011.
The screening of the film is open to the public. You can view the trailer at www.surrenderedthemovie.com and pre-order the DVD on the website.
The budget for the film was $15,000 which allowed the crew to purchase a camera, lenses, and a few other necessities. All of the locations and props were donated by members of the church.
The film is about a man who faces the biggest decision of his life at Christmas time, after losing almost everything he cherished in his life.
All of the footage was edited during production. Each night the crew would take the footage and begin editing, which allowed the church to complete the project on a very tight timeline.
The project was filmed on a Panasonic AF-100 camera, and edited in Sony Vegas with a Macbook Pro running boot camp. The church has been inspired by Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia after the impact that their movies have made.
