Nelson Robertson Sr. is a wonderful director that I have had the honor of getting to know by way of producing his first self written and directed film, The Sleepover. Nelson Robertson Sr. is the Assistant Pastor of Faith to Faith Ministries of Villa Rica, Georgia, a Life Coach, Entrepreneur, Producer/Writer, Husband, and Father of seven. He loves the Lord and his family to no end. He has a passion for enriching and uplifting lives through teaching faith and the unconditional love of the Lord.
I met Mr. Robertson at a virtual gathering for the Atlanta Christian Filmmakers Network, coordinated by Filmmaker, Susan Smith, of Mystible Entertainment. It was a small group, each of us expressing our passion for filmmaking and our faith. Immediately after the gathering, Mr. Robertson emailed Marketing Truth as well as left a voicemail stating his interest in seeing how we can help him with a script that he had written. With such a humble spirit, Mr. Robertson stated that it was his first project, and that he will be learning from us through the entire process.
Myself, along with Music Producer & Composer, Jonathan White, read the script that Mr. Robertson presented. After reading the script and role playing, we realized that it was a family film geared towards youth, and that the core of the film was for kingdom advancement. We both could not turn it down. The Sleepover, is a story about 4 high school girls, 3 have confessed Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. However, one, Taylor, is not saved. While the other 3 teenage girls coordinated a sleepover, they invite Taylor. It's there at the sleepover that Taylor gives her life over to the Lord. Changes can take place anywhere, even at a sleepover.
It's been such a delight in working alongside Mr. Robertson as the Producer throughout the pre-production process, from coordinating all of the administrative tasks, hiring crew, selecting cast members, crew and talent contracts, delegating tasks to each department, managing the progress of the crew members within each department from start to finish, and more. I am looking forward to working with him on set during our scheduled production days of April 7-10, 2022. All has been such a wonderful experience that I wouldn't trade in for the world. I am also anticipating what God has in store for the film, as I will be assisting the assigned Editor, Gary Lerenz, of Light Em Up Productions and Music Producer & Composer, Jonathan White, as an Assistant Editor in the pre-production process. We are all looking forward to seeing what Mr. Robertson decides as far as distribution. There is a lot that God has in store for The Sleepover and Mr. Robertson in the film industry as he continues to minister to the lives of the general public by way of film. We are looking forward to announcing his first screening in 2022, and hope to see you there! You can learn about Nelson Robertson and his ministry by click on the social icons posted above.
