Ten Liberty students, graduates serve on set of Kendrick brothers' film

August 22, 2014  |  Liberty University News Service


A group of students from Liberty University’s Cinematic Arts, Zaki Gordon Center, together with some recent graduates, spent a portion of their summer working behind the scenes of filmmaking brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick’s fifth movie.

Filmed in the Charlotte, N.C., area from early June through the end of July, “Movie 5,” as it is currently dubbed, is the first Kendricks’ project to be shot outside their hometown of Albany, Ga. The film focuses on the power of prayer and features New York Times best-selling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer in her film debut and a cameo by renowned Christian speaker Beth Moore.

It is being produced by Kendrick Brothers Productions (independent of Sherwood Pictures, the movie ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church) and distributed by Provident Films and AFFIRM Films, a division of Sony Pictures. “Movie 5” is just the latest in a string of Kendrick successes, following “Flywheel,” “Facing the Giants,” “Fireproof” (the highest-grossing independent film of 2008), and “Courageous.”
