Lost In The Woods A Story Of Faith

This movie was made entirely to show in local community churches. There are no professional actors only church members who play the parts. It was filmed on an extremely low budget, and no one had any prior moviemaking experience of any kind. However, once the movie was finished, it was shown at one of the local theaters for which it received tremendous support. Afterward, there was such a demand for the movie we decided to enter it into film freeway. Although it is a low-budget film with no professional casting people gave such interest in the movie we have decided to send it out into Christian Film Festivals.This movie is a full-length Christian faith based feature film about three children who go missing from the church after their parents were unable to pick them up. The kids become lost in the woods, but their parents believe they have been kidnapped and are searching for them out on the highway not realizing the children are in a patch of woods in between the church and their own home unable to find their way out.

Director Biography - Randy Skinner

I am a former police officer from the Nashoba and Newton County areas. I began studying how to make films in 2013 and by 2014 I started making my first short documentaries.

A flower from Heaven was my first Christian-based fiction short film. It's the story of a young girl wandering around in a supermarket in search of a quarter to purchase a flower that looks like the one her grandmother had given her.

Lost in the woods was my first feature-length film. The one hour and 47-minute film is about three young girls that get lost in the woods and were led to safety by an angel.

A Flower From Heaven 2, A Perilous Journey was the first feature film that I was offered a distribution contract. This movie is about a 13-year-old girl who is desperately trying to save her mother from the sin of unbelief in God before she dies of cancer.This movie is now being awarded a distribution contract and can be seen on Amazon prime.

Walking In The Supernatural is now my third feature-length project. Filming actually started in late December 2017 and had continued all the way up to the end of July 2018. We initially had hope for 7 to 9 testimonies of supernatural events but stopped at six as we found the testimonies of this particular type can be long and very complicated. We then cast actors to make reenactments of the statement for the audience to see. This six gave us a feature-length documentary about one hour and 19 minutes long but still more testimonies are coming in so it is apparent this movie may have a part two and even a part three.

My very first feature film had many mistakes in it. I have learned that a mistake can be a good thing so long as you know where they are and what you can do to correct them. This is how we grow and how we get better at what we do.
