Local movie maker behind new documentary

By Guest Opinion,

Dan Merchant is an Oregonian who created the new full length movie “Lord Save from Your Followers” which has been touring the nation this summer.  It is a combination of a documentary, comedy, and at times a very hard hitting commentary on pop culture and church culture.    It has been highlighted by USA Today and Good Morning America.

The movie succeeds on two points.  First, the movie is a highly professional and entertaining mix of animation, celebrity quotes and vivid imagery not always found in either start-up documentaries or in Christian themed films.   Second, the movie has several deep compelling messages that strike to the heart of how the modern church communicates to the modern world.   Nothing is hidden from Merchant’s examination of the state of America’s religious affairs.

The film is available for a church screening.  Local congregations should take advantage of having this emerging  and promising producer in their own backyard by inquiring about a preview screening.
