Watch this entire Truly CA episode: Audience of One by filmmaker Michael Jacobs. (Running Time: 55:33)
Ten years ago, a pastor from the Voice of Pentecost Church in San Francisco received a prophetic whisper, a directive from God to make movies for the Lord. Using donations from his congregation, he slowly transformed his church into a fully functioning movie studio and the production company Christian WYSIWYG Filmworks was born. After experimenting on a number of small projects, Pastor Richard Gazowsky announced that he and his WYSIWYG crew were going to make a film entitled, Gravity: The Shadow of Joseph, a $50 million biblical science fiction movie that would redefine the Hollywood epic.
Audience of One is a documentary that chronicles the making of Gravity. This verite style film goes inside the Pentecostal church, where the charismatic Gazowsky leads his loyal cast and crew on an incredible journey that tests the limits of faith. From pre-production at their church, to shooting principal photography in Italy, to leasing an enormous studio on an island in the San Francisco Bay, Audience of One keeps pace with an embattled church looking to God in order to keep their dream alive. Full of humor and pathos, what transpires is a story of obsession, faith and delusion.
