"How to Entertain and Engage Spiritually" webinar PART 2 of 3 was very inspiring!

 A BIG thanks to our presenter David Nixon. It was so inspiring to hear all that God had done on David's movies in order to make them as successful as they have become.  We had a VSN record with 23 people listening and participating within this webinar.


 Here are the links to the recorded webinar (57 minutes).

"Get My Story Started" webinar PART 1 of 3 was a success!

Part 1 was a great success. A BIG thanks to our presenter Brian Bird.  We had 20 participants join us in learning "How to Know You have a Good Story"

His main points were:

1. Do you have confirmation from at least TWO other people whose opinions you trust? Mommy and Uncle  Joe don't count.

2. Why are true stories better… as opposed to fictional stories?

3. Does your film have the WOW or GEE WHIZ…

User Generated -Youtube documentary "Life in a Day"

Hello friends.

This just came live.

I am only posting this here. This is an AMAZING opportunity for the VSN network. A very big hollywood director wants to make a youtube generated documentary by taking footage from all around the world on July 24th. There are still many questions as to how exactly this film will be put together. I am still investigating as to exactly what this is. BUT It is very exciting for film people especially VSNers to have the offer to show what life for them… Continue

Hi Travis,
Thanks for writing. Where are you located? Just before Christmas I gave Success seminars at three German universities (Bonn, Braunschweig and Jena) and to business professionals in Cologne. We concluded with the Key to eternal success. They have invited me back for next spring. Maybe we could hook up.

Hey Travis,
It's cool that you connected with Janina. I also had lunch with her here at the ICVM conference last fall. She is a good contact for you in the German film world. Her partner in the doc that was at Sabaoth is also a good guy, Christopher Cuhls. He's on FB also.

I am finally hearing again from our sales agent. Just got a response from an e-mail today. They're gearing up for the next markets: Sundance, Berlin, Prague, etc. He has promised a report in the next week or so (hopefully before Sundance) and that will give me an idea of where they are at in Europe.

Crazy thing happened this week also; a guy in the Netherlands sent me a complete Dutch translation of the script. And he hasn't even seen the film! He heard about it from a friend and got his hands on a word doc we had sent to someone else.

I e-mailed you but it said it could not be sent to your server. Do you have an alternative e-mail address?
