'David Hood' by Josh Ebel and Adam Fielden.  An Old Legend...Retold… David Hood is a take on a couple old characters (The biblical story of David and Robin Hood) that have been put into a blender, added twist of lemon and a dash of surprise in brand new tale that is completely unlike either story. David Hood is about our hero David and his best friend Will who has been hiding for years and spends his time roughing up his nemesis, King Saul.

Offcial selections for the 28 February 2016 Christian On-line Film Festival!

Short Films:

--  'Adoration: A Natural History' by Mr. Ian Woodward and ENCORE Films, an official selection for the 28 February 2016 Christian On-Line Film Festival! It is a Virginia premiere. ‘Adoration’, a wildlife docudrama by lifelong English naturalist Ian Woodward, FZS, is a portrait of the countryside seen through the seasons, its fauna and flora, and through the eyes of Nature Woman. (FZS = Fellow of the Zoological Society of London.) Although ‘Adoration’ is ostensibly a film about the seasons, there is also a hidden religious message. The film strives to show that nature is every bit a place of worship as a cathedral made in stone. ‘Adoration’, the film’s title, stems from the religious sense: an aspect of worship. The film’s heroine, Nature Woman, feels “at one” with both God – hence the Crucifix that is always close to her – and the natural world around her. It is accompanied by beautiful, inspiring music and the filmmaker’s screenplay-in-verse. Nature Woman, played by London-based actress Kim May, is the physical embodiment of the film’s imagery and sentiments. You are going to be truly amazed when you see this nature film which has awesome close-up scenes of all the birds and animals and plants that are found in nature, and acknowledges that God created them for us to enjoy! This wonderful educational film was Written and Directed by Mr. Ian Woodward, Camera and Editor Mr. Ian Woodward, and Stars Ms. Kim May as Nature Woman. Ms May, the film’s London-based singer-actress has dazzled British theatre audiences as Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Although best-known for her starring roles as Kate/Lois Lane in Cole Porter’s classic musical ‘Kiss Me Kate’ and as the fading Hollywood star Jessica Cranshaw in the Kande-Ebb musical ‘Curtains’, she is also a gifted and prolific songwriter with many recordings to her name. Encore Films were thrilled when she agreed to write the theme song for ‘Adoration: A Natural History’. Called simply ‘Adoration’, and sung by Kim herself, it appears over the film’s title credits. She flew to Holland to record ‘Adoration’ at a recording studio in Rotterdam. There the song was produced and mixed by long-time collaborator and music associate Victor Summers who also co-wrote with Kim May the film’s instrumental end-credits music. Other credits: DVD Design by Ms. Stefanie Woodward, Poems Narrator Ian Swain, Location Manager Anita Krasna, Sound by Elmer Goldman, Sound Assistants Paul Richardson, Alex Russell, Cara Cairns, Theme Song and End Credits Music by Victor Summers and Kim May, Lighting Mario Belmondo, Make-up Ceila Olivier, Wardrobe and Props Zenka Woodward, Production Runners Lon Callard, Freddie Goldsmith, Alana Hardie, Paul Richardson, and Maria Sheherlis! Special thanks was given to Cliff Howell (Compukare Solutions), Charlie and Barbara Wray (Wayside Farm Kings Langley), and finally Phillip Woodward!
