CINEFESTO: A FILMMAKER’S MANIFESTO”

If you are a Christ-centered ministry or mission organizations, let Rogue Marble turn your testimonies, your authentic and transformative God-stories, into scripted movies for increased outreach and development.

HOW DOES THIS

When we began working on the Filipino film, Tanging Pag-asa (Only Hope), we started with an authentic testimony from a member of the local church, LifeChurch Palawan, We interviewed here, transcribed the recording, and then wrote a 40-page script.

We pulled together volunteers to serve both in front of the camera and as the film crew. We use these projects also as opportunities to mentor ministry members in the art and science of filmmaking. The film ministry in Palawan that we established in 2008 remains active until this day.

With the script complete and volunteers secured, we obtained corresponding locations and set a shooting (filming) schedule. This project was complete over the course of 3 weekends, as the Director also worked midweek. Once the film was complete, we consulted with the church on how they wanted to use the film to reach out to people on the island, around the country, and across the world. Read the full story on our Success Story page.

Making a movie sounds exciting. But why should we work with Rogue Marble to identify a story and produce it as a movie?

Scripted and dramatized movies:

  • Are very effective in fundraising
  • Can be used to spread the Gospel in groups or one-on-one
  • Can be used as a keystone in your online presence
  • Provides opportunities for people to see the impact that God is making through your ministry
  • Can be used in live events, in person or streamed online
  • Can be distributed on DVD or digitally
  • Can be shared covertly, shared from one smartphone to another
  • and more…

The team at Rogue Marble consult with you every step of the way.

DOES IT COST?

CHARGE TO YOU: $0

Thanks to charitable sponsors and commercial production work through our Kaphene Studios division (coming in 2021), we are able to do so at no charge to your organization.

WHAT ABOUT

We know that many stories must remain confidential for the sake of the individuals portrayed and ministry safety. Whenever called for, these scripted films will use pseudonyms, changing the names of the individual characters, as well as the places, while maintaining the integrity of the story.

Let us be clear, these are your stories of what God has done and will remain yours to determine how they will and will not be used. Our team is available to discuss a variety of options. These produced films are for your organization to use to reach your target culture, region, and language…all to the glory of God.
