ORIGINAL OFFICAL TRAILER
HELP MAKE HISTORY
Finally, a movie that is both visually stunning, and biblically/scientifically accurate!
With incredible 3D animation and interviews from top scientists and researchers, this feature-length movie will show creation unfolding right before your eyes, but we can't complete it without you!
We've gotten this far but now we need your help! A production like this would typically cost Hollywood tens of millions of dollars to create. However, with the help of dedicated Christians who believe in this production, we are able to reduce the production costs to an absolute minimum. We have calculated that we need roughly $150,000 dollars to complete the visual effects and documentary shoot. If we can raise above that goal we will then be targeting a theatrical release!
Now it's time to make history!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call us - (850) 479-3466.

WHY IN 3D?
3D brings a new level of reality!
Over the past several years, 3D for your
home theater system has advanced leaps and
bounds. 3D TV's have now become so immersive that viewing 3D content appears as if you're looking through a window into another world. 3D content can appear both behind and in front of your 3D TV screen!
The Genenis Movie will be entirely in 3D and will use this capability to immerse it's viewers even further into the Genesis account.

*If you don't have a pair you can buy them online.
The samples below are using a 3D viewing method called "anaglyph". Anaglyph is an older 3D viewing method which enables anyone watching any monitor/screen to be able to view it. The final product(s), however, will feature modern 3D viewing methods, such as 3D TV's, 3D theaters, 3D capable computers, glass-less 3D, and more. Genesis 3D will be as good or better than any other 3D movies you have seen!

BEHIND THE SCENES
New breakthroughs make it possible!
Genesis 3D will use rendering technologies and compositing techniques that are as sophisticated as those of major Hollywood studios. Over the past 5 to 10 years, new 3D software technologies have been developed which enable us to create vast landscapes with literally millions of plants and trees, realistic clouds, animal fur and more, all in 3D!
Several rendered layers are composited together to create one final image.
(some layers above are wireframe screen captures, to reveal the 3D models)

First 3D Preview
Last month, an audience in Portland, Oregon, attending the Northwest Creation Conference exploded into applause as they enjoyed the privilege of being the very first to view a portion of the Genesis 3D Movie �IN 3D!
Creation Speaker Dennis Swift has hosted this conference for almost 30 years and asked me if we could put together a Genesis Movie preview for the conference attendees to experience. And experience it they did! By God�s grace, we now have the ability to take our 5� x 9� 3D screen, 3D projector, and 3D glasses to other audiences and give them a sneak peek into what people will experience when this project is released. When we posted this update on the Genesis Movie Facebook page, John, who was at the event, commented:
Behind the Scenes "Look Out for T-Rex"
As you know, the music score carries the weight of the film and provides about a third of the overall movie experience making it crucial to �get it right!� Praise God, we�ve obtained some unbelievably amazing talent to do the music score for the film and I look forward to sharing that with you. These accomplished composers are awesome Christians whose work precedes them.
We now have 50 super computers, with a total of 1000 processing cores, using three terabytes of RAM, running 24/7 rendering out the completed scenes. Total Hard Drive space for the Genesis 3D Movie consumes more than 100 terabytes!
Behind the Scenes �Having a Whale of a Time�
$300,000 Goal Met
As you will see from GenesisMovie.com we have passed our IndieGoGo goal of $300,000. For that we are so grateful and pray that God will continue to provide. The total budget for the film is $1.5 million and with the funds from the crowd funding campaign, we are about half way to our final goal.
We are praising God that we crossed our second goal of $300,000. Even though this goal was reached after the IndieGoGo campaign closed, we are still awarding everyone who contributed the special UNLOCK BONUS for making this happen.
For this UNLOCK, the Creation Store assisted us by stepping it up a notch! Those of you who contributed will receive an email notification with your code to download the entire Beginnings Creation Series (a $19.99 value) absolutely FREE. Creation Today has received so many amazing testimonies of God using the Beginnings series in people�s lives that we know He will use it in yours and the people with whom you share it. This is one way of saying THANK YOU for being part of this amazing work of God.
Once you view it, make sure to send the Creation Store a �Thank you,� for being so generous with their resources. We are grateful for their support.
Behind the Scenes �Prepping for Theater�
Christian Movies in Hollywood
The Genesis Movie Team cheers all that God is doing and we continue to labor hard to complete this work for the Lord. Many of you have noticed the amazing success of Christian Movies in Hollywood over these past several months. Discussing Genesis 3D with a major advertising agency, they report that the Genesis Movie couldn't come at a better time for maximum impact. Take a look at what some of these films have done at the box office.
(Genesis Movie does not necessarily endorse these films.)
- Son of God � $67,500,000 (54 Days after release)
- God�s Not Dead � $50,000,000 (33 Days after release)
- Heaven is For Real � $34,000,000 (7 Days after release)
Christians want to see truth, and Genesis 3D will let them experience it! Please share this project with your friends and encourage them to see what God is doing with Genesis 3D. Thank you for your prayers as we continue working on a project that will minister to millions.
