Mormon Films, Evangelical Audience?

That seems to be the strategy of Bridgestone Multimedia Group

A recent story in The Mormon Times reported that LDS filmmakers invited the Bridgestone Multimedia Group to Salt Lake City in an apparent effort to get some of its films into Christian bookstores.

David Austin, vice president of sales and marketing at Bridgestone, told the newspaper he was "looking for films that don't have any direct denominational connections, that won't exclude or cause any group within the Christian community to be adverse to them. The better job we can do to make them have ecumenical appeal, the better chance they have for commercial success and a regional larger audience."

Mormon filmmaker Lyman Dayton is working with BYU on a remake of 1975's Against a Crooked Sky, and sought Austin's advice on making it appeal to a wider audience.

Although we are family-centered, we are not "MorMOMs"
It's Mormons.

We should be giving them the real GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
not being afraid to upset remember we will all one day have to give an account for what we have said or done regarding the truth of his word this cult has told more lies regarding who THE LORD JESUS IS ONE INSTANCE THAT HE IS THE BROTHER OF SATAN two BEING BAPTISED FOR THOSE ALLREADY DEAD Icould go on and on. No let us not sell these people down to the pit but tell them of him the real Jesus that can save them from their sins and greet them on that day when he will say to all who beleive welcome my true and trusted servant.And to those who serve the lie begone Inever new you.FOR WE ARE SAVED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH ALONE IN THE JESUS OF THE SCRIPTURES AND NO ONE ELSE.
MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU WHO FOLLOW HIM Alan Wilkes
