Money Smart Guy Going Hollywood! The First Breakfast Movie directed by Christian Moffitt

post thumbnail

Nah, no plans for the West Coast, but who would have thought I’d be in a movie?  God always has His ways…and this time it was to cross paths with Christian Moffitt.  I was introduced to him by Christian Hage of City Church Chicago who discovered him, literally on the side of a street.  This guy is SUPER TALENTED and I couldn’t believe he is only 19 yrs old!

Christian Hage, Pastors Kent and Alli Munsey arranged for a special movie production to be created for last week’s Easter service.  What a treat for City Church Chicago…church was packed Easter morning.  Below is a replay of that production, The First Breakfast by City Church Films.

Big thanks to the Swim Cafe on Chicago Ave for being such a great set to shoot at…their menu is phenomenal and their owner, Karen, was kind enough to prepare us a meal after the shoot at 3am!  Be sure to stop on in and grab a bite to eat at Swim Cafe! GREAT food!

Ready for Lights, Camera, Action with the star, the Easter Bunny!

On top of that, it was great to be on set with so many of my brothers-in-Christ from City Church Chicago.  Time flies by so fast that even though we go to church together, we could use more laughs like the ones we had during this shoot.  I’m so glad that Christian Hage was able to upload this on Vimeo – check it out below!

Here’s a Chance to Help a Rising Star – I Need Your Help to Vote for Christian Moffitt!

As you can see from his work, Christian Moffitt is truly a talented and gifted filmmaker, director…you name it…he’s got the goods.  I’d really love it if you would help support his work, it would only take a few moments of your time to push up this young, Chicago talent to bigger things!  He was sent couple weeks ago, right after shooting The First Breakfast, to Los Angeles to shoot a short film staring Dominic Monaghan. There was another ‘team’ shooting a video staring Bobb’e J. Thompson.
