Liberty Counsel Embarks on Feature Film About Religious Liberty in Public Schools
Lynchburg, VA – Liberty Counsel is working on a feature film to be released next year called Uncommon, starring Erik Estrada. Uncommon will help to educate teens, parents, and school officials on religious liberty in the public schools.
The film will address the questions about religious liberty of students in public schools. Estrada, who is currently touring for his most recent, faith-based film, Finding Faith, stated his reason for getting involved: “For too long the confusion about prayer at graduation or a Christian-themed musical to be performed in a public school has left Christians uncertain and silent. It’s time we found our voice.”
Both a film and a musical, Uncommon will challenge teens to live dynamically by faith even during unjustified conflict. The film is about high school students who run into conflict with those who think public schools should be religion-free zones. The film will feature scenes with drama, music, and dance.
The filmmakers are looking for local talent to cast in the film and will be conducting an open casting call at Thomas Road Baptist Church on March 22 and 23, 2013. The film will be a ‘High School Musical’ type of film production, so those with dance and singing talents are welcomed!
Uncommon will be filmed this summer in Lynchburg, Virginia. The majority of all filming will be completed at Liberty Christian Academy. More information about the film can be found at www.uncommonfilm.com.
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
