E.P. MINI-BIO

In order to explain the how and why of launching this non-profit production company in July 2020, in the midst of this “global pandemic”, WE need to tell you a bit about our founder, MK.

SPIRITUAL FOUNDATION – Having bathed in the sincere love and faith of my mom, on Palm Sunday, at age 11, I gave my life to Jesus Christ in our little Baptist church. Only a few months later, with a silent 8mm film camera in-hand, neighborhood friends and I imagined and produced our first films. We crafted stories of espionage, friendship, and traveling the galaxy, complete with visual effects and pyrotechnics. It was “Sandlot” with a camera and smoke bombs.

Both of my lifelong passions – Jesus and filmmaking – were birthed, my “sure foundation” and my life trajectory, my Reason and method.

EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE – MK earned a B.S. degree in Christian Education and a minor in Biblical Studies from BIOLA University while working in youth ministry, later touring with a Christian folk-rock band. From there, he served as a missionary in Japan, worked in full-time church ministry stateside, and built his own commercial graphic, publishing, media production, and talent training studio from scratch.

During his Master’s program in Advanced Digital Storytelling, MK crafted his “manifesto of a Christian Filmmaker”, a “Cinefesto”. It is the result of a lifetime of media production and church ministry interwoven since I was 11 years old. That is when God called me to tell stories through film. It is still a work in progress and may result in a formal book release future forward.
