“There is something in us, as storytellers…that demands the redemptive act, that demands that what falls at least be offered the chance to be restored. ”  – Flannery O’Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose

Hollywood has changed. The big studios like Warner Bros. and Disney are no longer the only ones creating content in the entertainment industry.

By focusing on your excellence of craft, depth of spirit, and commitment to community, Act One propels you into the career God has uniquely created you for.
