So, I first became interested in acting at age 2 when I learned how to lie, like all kids do. However, my love for it started when I was 9 after I was given a camera for Christmas. My early attempts at films were mostly amateurish and spontaneous...yeah... But in late 2009, however, I started work on a more ambitious project, Beyond Under, inspired by the biblical account of Gideon. As that project took shape, I began to take all forms of storytelling more seriously, a lot of people might say that I actually take storytelling to seriously now. But hay, I look at it this way: if storytelling was a good enough tool for Jesus to use to teach when He walked on earth, then storytelling should probably be taken seriously. Anyway, back to the story. I worked on the script for Beyond Under for a year, then, we spent another year and a half actually filming it. By the time Beyond Under premiered, it was a 95-minute feature film with a cast of about 60..ish. I know, I'm an overachiever.
S.C. TreeHouse was designed to give young and undiscovered storytellers and artist a chance to shine. We provide a God-honoring and God-centered environment for creative people to have the chance to work on real industry projects as they are trained to become better at their crafts. We do this free of charge for the storytellers and artists.
No less than 40% of the yearly budget always goes directly to supporting the talented storytellers who S.C. TreeHouse mentors and works with. The other 60% of the budget goes to things such as food, housing, and making sure these talented storytellers have the proper equipment to keep creating. The Heart of S.C. TreeHouse is to teach and help all kinds of artists and storytellers to be able to use their gifts to honor the God who gave those gifts to them in the first place.
