Pendragon Movie Gives New Meaning to 'Family Film': Homeschool Families Pool Resources to Make Action Adventure Epic

pendragon-thumb.jpgCousins Chad and Aaron Burns know a little something about the term "family film." The 20-something former homeschoolers got their families together to form Burns Family Studio, scraped together $250,000, and took three years to make Pendragon: Sword of His Father, which won a "2009 Indie Best of Show" award at the Indie Film Festival. 

 

We haven't seen the film yet, but we have seen the trailer--and for a production made by amateurs, for so little money, it looks surprisingly good. It caught the attention of execs at Trinity Broadcasting Network, which broadcast the film last month and may air it again.

Chad Burns, 27, directs the film, and Aaron, 21, plays the lead role of Artos, a young man in A.D. 411 who feels he has been called by God to defend his people from the marauding Saxons.

"Our family seeks to inspire Christians to embrace God's purpose for their lives," says Chad Burns. Their film is being distributed in Family Christian Stores, and is also available to order online.
