WASHINGTON -- The NAB Show will feature a new Super Session titled "Faith in Film: A Roadmap for Success in Hollywood," Wednesday, April 14th in Las Vegas. Produced by 168 Film Project, the session will explore opportunities that exist in Hollywood for films of faith drawing from examples like "Blind Side" and "Fireproof," which have recently achieved mainstream success in the box office.
The Super Session will include a panel discussion featuring writer/producer Brian Bird of "Touched by an Angel;" Paul Lauer, founder of Motive Entertainment, which designed and managed the marketing campaign for Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ," and writer/director Joshua Weigel.
