Synopsis: A Christmas Snow was one of the top-selling inspirational Christmas films of 2010 and has won awards and praise from audiences around the world. It’s a heartwarming story of family, faith and forgiveness that leaves audiences in tears with the powerful tale of a woman unable to celebrate Christmas because of the pain in her past. After a snowstorm traps her in her home with two unlikely guests, she is confronted with a life-changing choice: hang on to her hurt or let go and embark on the journey of hope that awaits the heart that dares to forgive…

David Campbell – Set Production Supervisor

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Nail by nail, staple by staple, things are beginning to come together quite nicely. I spoke with our Set Production Supervisor today and I have some updates on how things are coming along.

Dave Campbell, our Set Production Supervisor, has a lot on his plate. He is busy making sure that the set pieces are built just right. There are so many specifications that must be met in order to make the logistics run correctly. He is estimating that when things are all said and done there will be over 20 different set pieces. Some will have to be flown in and out with a make-shift fly rig. He says the thing he is looking forward to the most is the challenge of storage. During scenes where there are only 2 or 3 set pieces on stage, all the rest of the 17 – 20 pieces are in the wings. The crew and actors will have have a fun time dancing around each other. He says the circus will be in full swing, but it will be a fun challenge.

Dave has had the privilege of working with Tracy and Jason to come up with, what to keep from the movie and what isn’t needed. There are a few surprises that he is very excited about, but doesn’t want to spoil the experience. So with 2 more weeks of building in Tulsa, they are hard at work. Dave and his team will head to Branson for the final fittings and melding of the minds to make ACS Live a reality!
