Festival Viewings for CCJ

Monday, November 24th, 2008

 At the end of October, Click Clack Jack, A Rail Legend, made its festival debut at the Florida Media Market.  Keith and Ryan and Britton were on hand to pitch the film to industry executives which went very well.  CCJ was not only an “Official” selection but also as a finalist in the category of TV programming which speaks volumes for the independent faith based film.

 The Florida Media Market is a membership-based organization whose goal is to educate and build a platform where independent film & media makers meet with international buyers, distributors and production companies to buy, sell and network. We aim to create an annual market for film, documentary, television and media deal-making that will fortify our industry both internationally and in Florida, the action state.

Click Clack Jack was also accepted and screened at the WYSIWYG Film Festival in San Francisco, on November 7th.  Mike Muscat, who played the railroad museum guide, assisted in securing a perfect time slot for CCJ’s viewing.  The team appreciated Mike’s efforts on the film’s behalf.

Click Clack Jack

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008
Illum Productions has agreed to produce the Christian film series pilot, Click Clack Jack.  Principal photography will be shot in California in Sacramento, James Town and Los Angles at Paramount Ranch.

Illum Productions will also produce all the visual effects and direct the distribution channels.  “We are very excited about this production,” Michelle Chambless, our Executive Producer says, “This is the type of project we believe in because of the values of the family unit are so strong and directly tie in with what Illum is working on for our children series.”

It is the dream of Keith Thomas, whom up until now, has been traveling to churches, schools and theatres telling the story of a train engineer from the 1870’s who helps out unfortunate and lost souls and through generosity, kindness and selflessness, helps these people find faith and purpose in their lives.  Click Clack’s stories are told to children through a train museum guide who has a kinship to Click Clack.

The series is driven towards children, families and the Christian faith.  Ryan Bodie, owner of Studio 26 Productions, will be co-writing and directing the film.
