Tim Tebow Super Bowl Ad

We are very excited to have finished production on the Tim Tebow Super Bowl Ad for Focus on the Family!  Stephen Vidano Films spent 2 months producing the spot from start to finish. The shoot took place in Orlando, Florida at the Full Sail University studios.

With the help of Brian Baugh (D.P.) Adrian Chynoweth (Production Coordinator), and Luke Atencio (Original Music Composition), Stephen Vidano and Mark Waters (Writer) directed Tim and Pam Tebow through their lines for the 2010 Focus on the Family Super Bowl commercials.

On Set:

Pam Tebow is a natural.  She is the picture of grace and perseverance as she delivers line after line; pushing for "just the right take" or "just the right inflection."  Pam's poise and beauty are truly evident in the final spots.  Hours later the atmosphere is "electric" as Tim walks on set.  Tim's infectious smile and light humor warms the sound stage, and creates a natural connection between mother and son.

Currently CBS is standing by their decision to air the TV commercials on the Super Bowl. A quote from CBS states:

"CBS is standing by its decision to air the spot. In a statement, the network said, "At CBS, our standards and practices process continues to adhere to a process that ensures all ads -- on all sides of an issue -- are appropriate for air." The network says it will continue to consider "responsibly produced" ads for all of the remaining time slots..."



Defy The Darkness

This is the latest short film Stephen Vidano directed and produced for Lamplighter Theater.

Lamplighter's desire is to produce feature length movies that parallel many of the stories they have published during the last 20 years.

Written by John Fornof, and co-produced by Adrian Chynoweth, Lamplighter's vision for this short film was two-fold: first to create a story that brought great weight to the written word (and the treasure that it can be), and second they wanted to produce something that inspired people to persevere during suffering and trials. There are many more messages hidden in this story. That's the beauty of telling stories.



Look Before You Leap! - 3 Screen Movie Releases

We are very excited to announce the release of our most recent long form, 3 screen movie called Look Before You Leap, a dynamic 3 screen multi-media experience that takes relationship education to extreme heights (literally).

The red carpet premier of LBYL took place in Dallas, TX, and opened to an outstanding audience of over 600 people at the Dallas Flight Museum.  Projected on 3 screens (totalling over 45 feet wide) LBYL boasts an amazing bass thumping, seizure inducing, original score by music composer Luke Atencio.

The first scene of the movie opens with an eye popping stunt when JC Colcasure (skydiver extraordinaire and stunt man for Stunt Junkies and countless other shows) jumps from a plane at 3,000 feet and procedes to fall at 150 miles and hour and land in the back of a moving truck on the tarmac of a runway.  With 4 cameras rolling (including a helmet cam that JC was wearing) the scene kicks off the movie with incredible speed and energy.
