Tony Hale is an Emmy-winning comedic actor best known for his role as Gary Walsh on HBO’s political comedy Veep. Hale also starred as the socially awkward Buster Bluth on the ground-breaking, Emmy-winning series Arrested Development. He has starred in films such as The Heat and the forthcoming American Ultra, Dominion and Yoga Hosers, and recently released his first children’s book, Archibald’s Next Big Thing, which follows a young chicken named Archibald who is always looking for his next “big thing” instead of realizing all the big and beautiful things around him, right now.
We love stories. The power of narrative is what drew many of us into the entertainment industry to begin with. But our own stories don’t always go as planned. In an industry known for its ups and downs, stalls and starts, it’s easy to question whether we’re making a difference. It’s easy to sometimes feel that our dreams are out of reach.
This conference is about reconnecting with origins. It’s an opportunity to go back to the opening frame of your story, to reflect on why God called you to this industry, to be inspired once again about the narrative he has for your life. No matter where you’re at in your journey, he has a plan for you. You can make a difference. You are making a difference. So join us — your fellow Christian directors, producers, actors, writers and media-makers — and rediscover your purpose and passion to create meaningful, excellent work.
The upcoming Paramount Pictures feature film Captive, starring David Oyelowo (Selma, Interstellar) and Kate Mara (House of Cards, Fantastic 4 (2015)) debuting September 18th, will be showcased in the morning with guests Jerry Jameson (Director) and Terry Botwick (Producer). Also a special message from the star David Oyelowo.
Otherworld Interactive will be bringing both Oculus Rift and Google Cardboard demonstrations to the conference. Both devices are virtual reality headsets that strap onto your head and completely immerses yourself in a virtual reality world. Motion sensors allow you to look around as if you were really inside the 3D world.
But it's nearly impossible to explain. Oculus Rift is one of those things you have to see to believe!
