Weck enjoys the challenge as a filmmaker, he said, and learns from a community of artists through the festival.
“It’s just fun to see people put into the pressure cooker and see how their lives are changed by doing it,” Weck said. “It really is transforming. It gives you an opportunity to grow in your faith and grow in your craft. Hollywood’s a pigeonhole place, with [attitudes such as] ‘He’s an editor, and he’s a writer.’ A lot of people want to experiment with different roles. This gives everyone a chance to do it.”
But, he added, it’s also about his faith.
“I do it because it gives me a chance to honor God with my talents and to learn something from him that I normally wouldn’t get in a regular film production,” Weck said.
