Christian Rock Joins Bieber, Madonna, Chesney On Big Screen

Move over Justin Bieber… Nashville’s own, Mount View Creative will begin filming the first-ever behind the scenes movie, with a look into Christian music’s  most popular award winning rock bands, including Mercy Me, Kutless, Tedashii, Family Force 5, Luminate, Rhett Walker Band and Jeremy Camp performing live at venues across the country. The movie, filmed alongside the Rock and Worship Roadshow tour will showcase the 20 city concert arena tour currently rolling out across the US .

Along for the ride, Mount View Creative  (Franklin, TN) will be filming the artist’s lives both on- and off-stage. Executive producer Ryan Smith, 27, and associate producer Allen Cheney, 25, of Mount View are ready and excited to get this show on the road. “From catering to lighting rigs, audio load in and life on a bus…it takes a village to pull  everything together for an artist to walk on stage and put on an amazing show for fans,” says Smith. “We are thrilled to be putting together the first ever feature length documentary that will give a behind the scenes look at a major tour.” Mount View will give audiences an in-depth peek into what life is like on the road, and will be doing so with some of the latest technology in filmmaking. Using both Cannon 5d mark iii’s and RED Scarlet and Epic cameras, viewers will feel as if they are at the show.

Their camera will follow the acts during the  one of 2013’s fastest selling concert events . Footage of these days of concerts, rehearsals, and down time with friends, family, and his entourage is inter-cut with interviews showing a musical acts who love to perform. The movie emphasizes the importance of following one’s passions and of the work ethic and personality in creating a massive tour like the Rock & Worship Roadshow. An epic  tour indeed, Mount View Creative has assembled more than five producers for the production of this highly anticipated film. As well as photographer Jeffrey Holland, Director Matt Underwood, and Editor Ryan Camp, MountView Creative have worked with industry superstars.
