Product Description

Tinseltown is tarnished. Hollywood, while embracing creativity, seems to be shutting out morality and community. Can those with a Christian perspective find anything of value in such an environment---or contribute anything worthwhile to it? Eyeing the landscape from an insider's perspective, Ron Austin answers a firm yes.

Austin's In a New Light unpacks the spiritual principles underlying the art of film, including a historical survey of how cinematic art was shaped by the crisis of modernity. A veteran of the industry---having worked nearly half a century in its environs---Austin goes a step beyond the now-popular course of critiquing current films from a Christian worldview, espousing that the key to confronting evil in the media arts lies in the Christian attitude toward suffering.

Based on several years of Austin's filmmaking courses, In a New Light explores a spiritual foundation for creative film work and seeks ways to find common ground on which to build creative relationships. Austin's inside look will prove fascinating not only to students and practitioners of the media arts but to anyone interested in this aspect of popular culture.

Ron Austin has been a writer/producer in Hollywood for over forty years. Having worked on such TV shows as Charlie's Angels, Matlock, and Mission: Impossible, he is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and has been honored with lifetime achievement awards by the Writers Guild of America for his contributions to the Hollywood community. He has written many articles on film and taught at several film schools around the world.
