The Waco-made “A Sense Of Urgency” premieres at the Jubilee Theatre in Waco Saturday night with a red-carpet screening featuring cast and company members.
The film, the latest production of GodZone Ministry (“Heavenly High”) and Saving Oscar Productions, follows a teen named Izzy Pennington (Miciah Auden), who’s traveling by bus to meet her birth parents when the bus is hijacked. She’s held for ransom, but that proves an opportunity for faith and evangelism.
Directed and co-written by David D. Ford, with Michael Reid of Austin his co-writer, “A Sense Of Urgency” was filmed on locations in McLennan, Limestone and Falls Counties. It follows 2016’s “Something In The Woods,” a suspense story of a family terrorized by a Bigfoot-like creature.
Producer Stuart Miller, who with his wife Cindi run GodZone Ministry, was excited about the release of “A Sense Of Urgency.” “It is a salvation story,” he said. “It’s the best movie we’ve ever done.”
The film’s distributor, Little Cherub Entertainment, has secured permission to sell its DVDs at Gaither Music Festivals, Miller said.
All but approximately 50 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s premiere, with Ford, Miller, Auden and other cast members on hand for a post-screening question-and-answer period. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the movie showing at 7 p.m.
Advance tickets are available online at eventbrite.com. DVDs of the movie also will be available for sale.
