Private Project

For Prophet

A struggling entrepreneur encounters the Archangel Raphael, who reveals that he is chosen by The Most High God to be a part-time prophet, tasking him to save his crumbling and corrupt hometown. Oh and he also battles a literal demon everyday in the form of an ever-present Cameraman that he “hallucinates”. His marriage, his business and his sanity will all be pushed to the limit on his spiritual quest to find faith.

Director Statement

To be perfectly honest, I have been attempting to flagship MSI Films for almost 10 years now: raising capital, finding talent, writing script after script and doing my absolute best to produce a narrative feature film. I’ve written 6 screenplays in that time, three of which were unable to “get off the ground” as they say in filmmaking. Not enough money for my sports “dramedy”. Talent “dropped out” of my dramatic wedding movie. And I’m still unsure whether I should be the one to direct my version of a Lynchian Horror screenplay. Then God put FOR PROPHET in my heart and instructed me to tell this story. Plain and Simple.

Suddenly, and for the first time, I was scared to make a film. My faith is personal and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to put it out there. Not in the very real way I would need to. But I truly felt a supernatural push to begin my feature filmmaking career with the movie FOR PROPHET. Thank the Lord it's good!
