Overview Having raised enough money to independently produce a feature film with a hopeful message to the world, filmmakers Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison leave the mission fields of Indonesia for the mission field of Hollywood, but with millions of dollars of investors' money on the line, Chase and Keith struggle to keep the film from falling apart. Simultaneous.
Publishers Description Could they change the world---before the world changes them? Filmmakers Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison left the mission field of Indonesia for the mission field of Hollywood with a dream bigger than both of them. Now they have done the impossible: raised enough money to produce a feature film with a message that could change the world. But as Chase and Keith begin shooting, their well-laid plans begin to unravel. With millions of dollars on the line, they make a desperate attempt to keep the film from falling apart---even as a temperamental actress, a botched production schedule, and their own insecurities leave little room for the creative and spiritual passion that once motivated them. Was God really behind this movie after all? A chance meeting and friendship with John Baxter could bring the encouragement they need to stay on mission and produce a movie that will actually change people s lives. In the midst of the questions and the cameras, is it possible to keep things above the line and make a movie unlike anything done before---or is the risk too great for everyone?"

It was somewhat predictable but if you are looking for an uplifting, cheerful story with a lot of faith, this is a good one to read.
Karen Kingsbury Fan Mar 26, 2010
I loved "Take One" as I have every book I've read of Karen's. Not just for the story line, which I enjoy alot, but for how this book as well as all of her books, speak to the issues we all face in life. They encourage me and give me hope and help me to focus on God and what's important in life. Can't wait to read "Take Two" and Three. Keep them coming Karen and Thank-you for sharing your gift with us.
