This morning, I walked into my office and to my surprise the book The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey was on my desk. I giggled under my breath because my boss Brian and our VP of Video Production Phil were just in Nashville last week to interview Dave Ramsey himself.
I opened the flap and there it was. Dave’s signature in black ink that said To: Samantha. Romans 12:2:“Transforms!”
Dave’s interview will be featured in a DVD series we’re creating at Bluefish called Marriage: Built to Last. Dave’s story along with Kurt Warner and Josh Hamilton are the high profile interviews a part of the series. Chip Ingram is going to do the biblical teaching in the series and we’ve shot around 20 real-life marriage stories. Maybe I’m biased, but I think this series is going to be one of the best marriage resources out there and I think you should get it whether you’re married or not!
I can’t wait to see the rough cut of Dave’s interview and to dive into this book.
This past week our crew filmed The Sacred Echo DVD in breathtaking Crested Butte, Colorado. The Sacred Echo DVD is based off Margaret Feinberg’s new book, The Sacred Echo. I was able to read her book a few weeks ago to begin brainstorming story ideas for the project. I was really touched by her stories, the way she uses Scripture, and most of all her heart for Jesus.
During the filming, our crew put in long hours, sweated in the heat and froze with the cold, as Margaret said. She even said she has 30 mosquito bites to prove they were really in the middle of nowhere. They shot scenes with waterfalls, mountains, wildflowers, and the beauty of God’s creation was their backdrop. I can’t wait to see the final project.
In the upcoming weeks, we’ll be seeking out people for specific stories that intertwine with the themes addressed in The Sacred Echo. Check in for updates on The Sacred Echo DVD release at Bluefishtv.com.
In 2000, Brian came on board at Bluefish excited to use his radio/television/film degree to communicate biblical truth. At this time, he also founded the RightNow Campaign to help our generation use their gifts and passions to do something significant right now. Since then, Brian has established a network of 75 mission agencies and service organizations to partner with RightNow and has connected over 2,000 opportunities to make a difference in the world.
This Spring, Brian Mosley was named Executive Vice President of Product Development. He leads a team of two writers, two graphic designers, and eight video producers who create all the video resources Bluefish creates each year. To date, over 93,000 churches have used at least one Bluefish TV resource.
“I enjoy being behind the scenes shaping part of the message without being the person who delivers it. In a society where there are more screens (TV and computer) than people, we love using those screens to encourage people to live out their faith. I love that I get to work with such a creative and passionate team,” says Brian.
Brian anticipates many exciting opportunities for the Product Development team as they continue to expand and produce new resources.
A few weeks back, our EVP of Product Development, Brian Mosley and one of our producers, Chad Madden spent the day with Todd Phillips, (pastor at Frontline) as he prepared to give the keynote message at the Living Water Gala. Over 600 people attended the fundraising dinner. At the dinner, Todd launched The Last Well Movement which is a passion of Todd’s to see clean water reach all of Liberia. The RightNow Campaign and Bluefish TV will be putting major support behind The Last Well Movement.
In fact, Chad is traveling with Todd and nine other guys to climb Mt. Elbrus this summer. It’s the highest peak in Europe at 18,500 feet. He will be documenting the climb and producing a video resource for small groups. The climbers are raising $250,000 towards The Last Well.
Brian also met with Mark Batterson regarding an upcoming video project. It was a great time of encouragement. He showed Brian around Ebenezer’s Coffee House which is owned and run by Mark Batterson’s church, National Community Church. It’s in the heart of DC a few blocks from the capitol building. Theater church is a dynamic ministry in a very strategic place.
We look forward to what the future holds in these upcoming projects.
