A GIVEAWAY!

Today I am announcing A Window Into my World’s very first giveaway!  I am so very excited – how about you?

I am giving away a copy of the new movie “Sons of Georgia.”  This movie, made by Children of Light Productions, is the result of the hard work of many homeschooling families.  It is a story that takes place during the Civil War.  The summary on the back reads:

“Join Jerry Blanding as he recounts to his grandson the story of the Civil War and his war-torn childhood in the heart of Georgia.  He and his older brother, Sam, lose their father and brothers in the War of the Century and endure Sherman’s ravaging of the South and undergo his infamous March to the Sea with the idea of “making Georgia howl.”  Sam finally must resolve for himself what to do as Atlanta is on the verge of collapse and his own family is in dire peril.  Will Sam determine to compromise his faith and his family for safety or will he sacrifice for what is right?  Come along with us as we experience the emotions of Jerry Blanding as he writes this heart wrenching epic story of survival!”

“Sons of Georgia” Movie Premier

Last Saturday we went to the “Sons of Georgia” movie premier.  We had a wonderful time and it was great to see the end result of the hard work of all our dear friends (they have been working on this for over a year)!  For a first movie, they did an excellent job.  It had funny parts, sad parts, happy parts, and serious parts.  I am glad that we were able to go.  Please go check out the Sons of Georgia website here.  They have several videos there, as well as some excellent photos from the event (much better that mine!).  You can watch the trailer here.

Sons of Georgia Premier

Some dear friends of ours have been working on the movie “Sons of Georgia.”  They are nearing the end of about a year or more of planning and hard work.

The premier is next month.  We are planning to attend.  I am looking forward to seeing the movie, now that it is all finished!

Here is some information about the movie that my friend sent to me:

“You are all invited to the “Sons of Georgia” Premiere on Saturday, April 21st at 10:30 A.M. Children of Light Productions will be showing this film at the Hi-Pointe Theatre in Clayton, Missouri. This film will present Sherman’s epic March to the Sea through the eyes of the Georgia citizens. We would love for you to be able to attend. The “Sons of Georgia” DVD will be for sale at the premiere showing.

Samuel Saffa is the film’s producer and Stephen Littmann Jr. is the director. This 58 minute film is the product of many homeschool families in the St. Louis area and some in different directions outside of St. Louis … even as far as Texas. The film features as the Blanding family … Darrel and Terri Mays, Samuel and Gracie Lee Saffa, Addison Brown, Abriana Price, Ezra Proch and Evan Petzoldt . The first shoot, “Civil War Ball Scene”, was filmed at the 2011 CHEF Homeschool Conference.

The Hi-Pointe Theatre is located at 1005 McCausland Ave. next to the large Amoco sign near the St. Louis Zoo. Please plan for extra time to park and walk to theatre.”
