Many of you have seen the facebook posts, tweets, and instagrams about #bigthings coming. Many of you have asked us "what's the big deal?".... Well, we're gonna tell ya... soon.
Just a little backstory first...
When I (Casey) thought about starting this little videography company a couple of years ago, I never dreamed where it would take us. I got my little brother on board, and everything was a go.
At the time, Kristin and I were (and still are ) in the middle of remodeling our home, my "real" job was going great, and I was having a blast being one of the media directors at my local church (I got to play with video and audio stuff all the time, which is my true passion). Everything was GREAT.
Just when you think God has thrown you fastball after fastball, and you're knocking it out of the park everytime.... he decides to change it up and throw you a curveball. Well, NICHOLAS & KEATON was my curveball. Within a year, I had left my church media position. I kept saying to myself "is this the right thing to do? I thought this was my calling on how I impact other for Christ...." The thing was, God had a plan that was bigger than I could imagine.
After starting NICHOLAS & KEATON, I kept asking God "I understand you wanted me to start this company. Yes, it will change the lives of all our wedding couples. Yes, they'll have lasting memories with amazing wedding films. Yes, I'll have a blast every weekend filming with my little bro and getting to work with some of the most amazing people on this planet (my wonderful wedding photographer wife and the amazing Knoxville wedding industry pros). " But my question still... "God, what's the big plan for this company? How's it going to impact others for you?"....
Well, a few months ago, God laid the first stepping stone right in front of us...
Starting tomorrow, NICHOLAS & KEATON will be shooting and editing a music video and "the behind the scenes DVD footage" for a major motion picture. A christian based motion picture with the likes of "Fireproof", "Facing the Giants" and "Courageous".
The name of the film is "Let the Lion Roar", and it's being produced in Switzerland and Nashville. It stars Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Sorbo (WE LOVE HERCULES!), Jaci Velasquez, and many other notable actors.
Tomorrow, we jump in the deep end with both feet... We're shooting a music video with Jaci Velasquez, a 7 time Dove award winner including Female Vocalist of the Year who has sold over 5 million albums worldwide. We'll be in Nashville, TN filming most of the morning tomorrow!
Once that's complete, we'll begin editing work on "behind the scenes" footage for the film. This footage will be the "Special Features" on the DVD, and also you'll see a lot of our work leading up to the release of the film as teasers on Youtube and online press kits.
This DOES NOT mean we're stepping out of weddings. We LOVE shooting weddings. We really love enriching our couples lives with something they will cherish FOREVER.
We're happy that God is leading us down a path where our films can not just impact hundreds, but rather thousands. His plan is always greater than ours...
