Invest in stories of hope today! 

Every Hollywood film is backed by investors that dump thousands or millions of dollars into a project with the hopes of some huge return. 


We are different. We need people like you to invest in to our films and know that there is no financial return, but there is a return that is beyond value. 


Forthright Films is dedicated to documenting the testimonies of Christian tribal members around the world.  The ministry began after visiting with a rural tribal group in India that had only been introduced to the modern world within the past 25 years. 


During my time there, I realized that the only information available showed the people to be pagans, yet I was standing with some of the most dedicated Christians I had ever met.  I came back to the States with a new passion, to dedicate these stories! Then something amazing happened. Doors began to open to Native American groups and the next thing I knew, we were off to an awesome start! 


So why should you invest? One of the most amazing things that I learned during our first trip is that tribal groups do not always trust non-tribal members. So as a missionary, I have to spend months or years just gaining the trust of a people group before they will hear my message, but these videos allow us to document testimonies of tribal people that can speak directly to other tribal members.  In other words, these videos are much more effective in ministering to tribal groups than I could ever be on my own. 


We now have much of the needed equipment, but there is always more that can help us increase the quality of our videos. Because of the amount of our equipment, we have to drive everywhere we go. This means added expenses and time dedicated to each shoot and we may also have to stay in hotels along the way.  Finally, each film takes hours and days' worth of work to film and edit. This means that there is less time to work a proper job the more that we grow. 


So thank you for giving consideration to investing in Forthright Films!


May God Bless You! Sincerely,
