It all started with a church in Albany, Georgia asking a few simple questions. What if a church could make a difference making movies? What if these movies challenged people to think deeply about real-life issues: What if these movies could impact the world? What if?...
Three successful movies later, Sherwood Pictures---in partnership with Provident Films---is inspiring moviegoers with their hope-filled, heartfelt stories. And those what ifs have become image that!
Never Leave Your Partner Behind
At work, inside burning buildings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner behind. At home in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.
The No. 1 independent film of 2008 has touched lives and impacted marriages with its story of hope about a firefighter, his wife ... and a marriage worth rescuing.
FACING THE GIANTS
Never Give Up. Never Back Down. Never Lose Faith.
After six consecutive losing seasons, high school football coach Grant Taylor believes things can't get any worse. He's wrong. With fear and failure defeating him at every turn, the downtrodden coach and husband turns to God in broken desperation.
Coach Taylor and his Shiloh Christian Eagles soon discover how faith plays out on the field ... and off. With God, nothing is impossible!
In Every Man's Life, There's A Turning Point
Jay Austin wants to sell used cars in the worst way ... and that's exactly how he does business at his dealership.
But as Jay works on restoring a classic convertible, he comes face-to-face with the reality of how he truly conducts himself. That starts Jay on the ride of his life as he commits to honoring God with his business, his relationships, and his life!
The purpose of Sherwood Pictures is to spread the gospel and the truth of God's Word to the world using movies that give audiences a picture of the cost and results of following Christ. Through drama, humor, and inspiration, we seek to tell stories that draw people of all ages to a closer walk with God.
Sherwood Pictures has produced four films: Flywheel, Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and Courageous. They have been some of the most successful faith-based movies in history. In a partnership with Sony Pictures and Provident Films, the films have been distributed globally and are available in multiple languages. The two most recent, Fireproof and Courageous, opened in the top five in U.S. theaters. The unique partnership of a church-based film company with major studios like Provident Films and Sony Pictures will continue to impact people around the world. Sherwood Pictures has used entertainment to change lives.
Sherwood Pictures pioneered a unique model, even for Christian filmmakers. The four movies, shot and produced in Albany, have been seen worldwide. The mostly volunteer cast and crew have been one of the great story lines of Sherwood Pictures.
