Secret of the Cave...a Chattanooga premiere

Tonight we had the privilege of attending the Chattanooga premiere of Secret of the Cave, an award-winning feature length motion picture produced by Southern Adventist University and the School of Visual Art and Design.

The majority of the film was shot on location in Ireland, with a portion at the end filmed locally on campus. After a year of post-production work, it was ready to go. Almost sounds simple, doesn't it? LOL!

Last year the film was selected out of more than 120 entries to receive the Crystal Heart Award. This award is given to a select group of independent filmmakers whose work explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life.

What an amazing experience for the faculty and students to work together and create such a fantastic production. There's no doubt that the students involved in the production of this real film will cherish this experience their entire lives.

Here is Dr. Bietz, university president, interviewing two of the lead actors before the showing of the film.

Chattanooga's Mayor, Ron Littlefield, was also on hand to view the film and talk about Chattanooga's and Southern's commitment to the arts.

Professor David George was the producer of the film.

Professor Zach Gray, shown on the set (in black), was the film director.

At the conclusion of the program, Dr. Bietz recognized Bill and Myrtle Hulsey for their outstanding support and assistance with the project.

And finally, the entire crew....students and faculty/staff, who's dedication and efforts made the film possible.

Now Joy and I are by no means movie critics, but we give it two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Secret of the Cave is available at Blockbuster, Movie Gallery, Hollywood Video and RedBox, and online at BarnesandNoble.com. Check it out.
