That void was that only too often, they simply were not enjoyable or entertaining. Faith Films will focus on stories that draw the audience in and viewing the events through the eyes of a variety of characters that we hope all viewers can find one or more that they relate to. From there, we try to throw in some action, laughs and themes with unexpected twists to hopefully have the audience talking about their experience long after the show is over.
