Blimey Cow

Most of the readers of the ESM blog have probably heard about Blimey Cow before, but we wanted to feature them on our site as they are Christian YouTube filmmakers.

If you have not heard about BC, we highly recommend you check them out. They have clean but  satirical, down-to-earth videos. Plus, they are fellow homeschoolers and many at ESM are homeschooled so we feel a connection to them.

They just posted a wonderful Valentine's Day themed video too!

To view their YouTube channel, click here. Prepare to be amazed.

Homeschool Performing Arts

We at ESM just wanted to do a quick shout-out to Homeschool Performing Arts (HPA) because......
opens this weekend in Kalamazoo!

 Wanna buy tickets? Go here!

A good portion of the cast from both Mo Chara and Ransomed either did or does HPA. This group has impressed us with its quality, God-centered performances. Not only are the directors leaders, they are also role models.

HPA has shows in Lansing, Grand Rapids, and Kalamazoo. If you are homeschooled in those areas and are interested in the performing arts, we highly recommend HPA.

Besides Oliver! there is Titanic and The Sound of Music... HPA Kids are doing Frog & Toad and Jungle Book

Desire more info about HPA??? Check out their site.

Movie Score

We need people who would be willing to volunteer to finish scoring the movie and/or sound edit it (foley, sound effects, general editing). Does anyone know someone or would they themselves be interested in helping us?

 We are using a traditional feel for the music, also applying public domain songs like "Will You Go Lassie Go" and "Rocky Road to Dublin". Some of the movie has already been scored by Elmo Harris.

The score writer and sound editor would both get credit in the movie and on our blog and other social media sites. The final product will be shown a Lansing Celeblration! Cinema and sold on Amazon. We will possibly be selling the soundtrack separately and the profits would be shared with the score writers (the profits of the movie go to helping pay off our previous expenses).

Please email for more info at epicsummermovie@gmail.com

Costume Designer's Fashion Blog

Anna Parker, actress in both Ransomed and Mo Chara was also a costume designer for both movies. She recently began a blog about the importance of dressing modestly and how this can be done is a fashion-conscious way. It is a wonderful blog. Check it out by clicking here.

On a side note, I just finished tweaking the last scene for Mo Chara; all that is left is fine-tuning like sound, color, and score.
