My guests in this episode are the filmmaking duo of Rafael Kalamat and Jason Barbeck. Both are actors, writers, directors and producers. Together they formed a production company called The Reel Deal Guys and produced their first feature film, Adam’s Testament. Rafael and Jason are also the organizers of the Canadian International Faith and Family Film Festival, known as CIFF, which I spoke with them about in the previous episode.
In this episode Rafael and Jason talk about the realities of producing films for the Christian marketplace. In spite of the struggles, these two filmmakers face the challenges with joy and expectation.
