DOUGLAS JAMES VAIL
Douglas is the third of five boys raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia. A cinephile and comic book collector, Douglas developed an obsession with black and white films and live stage performances before he learned to read. With dreams to work in Hollywood, Douglas drove cross-country after high school to pursue a career in the film industry. Gleaning what he could from movie sets and blessed with the mentoring from award winning faith-based filmmakers Wes & Amanda Lewellyn, Douglas set out to make motion pictures with the specific purpose to glorify God.
Today Douglas is known for directing, shooting, and editing two full-length feature films, one of which will exhibit in theaters March 3, 2022 through Fathom Events. In addition, Douglas has been invited to guest speak at several Christian Media Events and will be teaching a cinematography course at the largest Christian Film Festival in May 2022.
BENJAMIN M. JONES
Ben was reared in North Louisiana. The family had a small cattle ranch where Ben learned to cowboy. He rode his first bull at 14. He rodeoed for 4 years in high school and one year in college and played football at LSU. He got an engineering degree and a master’s in theology. He married his high school sweetheart to whom he has been married 42 years. They have 3 children and 9 grandchildren, including a son who is a 14 year veteran of the military. He has worked as an energy explorationist / executive for 42 years and is a lay preacher, through which he has honed his story-telling skill. Ben is a hopeless romantic and optimist. He claims to have read the Book Of Life and skipped to the end and found out God wins in the end.
Benjamin was inspired to bring this story to motion picture to quicken a hunger for God in the hearts of the viewers and to inspire them to live a more virtuous life and to contribute to the healing of those who have experienced traumatic loss.
