It’s the first time Christian fans will be able to help contribute to the creation of faith-based family movies.

To spread the love of Christ, Called Higher Studios has been formed as the first-ever fan-owned faith-based movie studio, the Christian Post reports.

Jason Brown and Ash Greyson, Christian movie executives, chose to launch the new studio in Franklin, Tennessee, to recreate and reimagine Christian movie-maing.

The co-founders say they want the studio to honour God and serve others.

“Our goal is to give a voice to creators through a lens of faith,” Greyson says. “We are a production community.”

Despite the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic, Brown says there was never a better time to start a studio to share the Gospel.

“If you look at the news for more than a few minutes, I believe it’s easy to see that we need some hope and the light of the world.”

The co-founders and their team raised over a million dollars in April from nearly 4,000 investors to fund the studio and its upcoming operations. These investors bought stock in the company have been named owners in Called Higher Studios.

The studio says its first production will be The Grace of Christ, a film based on the crucifixion of Jesus.

Brian Baugh, who wrote I’m Not Ashamed, wrote the script. Production is scheduled to start on the film next year. 

The studio aims to make world-class content that supports the visions of the Christian fans investing in it.

Supporters will be able to provide feedback on projects, help with casting, and maybe even score a cameo apperance.

Called Higher Studios is also engaging with nonprofits around the world, as part of it’s mandate to operate for the higher good – God’s good.
