Tell us a little about yourself. Darrel Campbell & myself are producing & writing films once again. We have been in full time ministry but 3 years ago felt God leading us back together. We have just finished a film titled " Last Ounce Of Courage " a Christmas movie based on how our Christian freedoms are being attacked.
What was your motivation behind this project? Hollywood in 1991 said there was not an audience for G rated family films. To get Hollywood to do Petes life story was almost impossible. Remember distribution sources such as Provident, Warner Family, Fox Faith, etc did not exist. We wanted to create a new way to distribute inspo\family films & felt The Pistol could do that.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Pete Maravich believed in hard work & that you can accomplish great things.Pilippians 4:13 Pete wanted to inspire "kids" with this first movie to work hard at whatever they felt called to do like acting, nursing,preacher,teacher etc. Just put forth an effort to be your best !
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I heard the cry of Pete Maravich heart to tell the world about Jesus. He knew we needed to build a relationship to Hollywood before they would ever give him a platform to make his life story. We were using The Pistol as a way to build that bridge. He would be proud of what's happened with Hollywood\Inspirational films and the gateway that's been opened.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My Mom & Dad who impacted me greatly to love God. My 2 older brothers Rick & Randy Stone & for 29 years my amazing wife Tammie. Right now I'm reading "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan & anything Andy Andrews writes. Love Gaithers music, Steven Curtis Chapman, Larnel Harris, Chicago a variety of music. I do love Praise & Worship !
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Just thanks for supporting The Pistol & I pray that whatever gift God has blessed you with that you will do it unto Him. That's the advise I'm giving to my own sons right now. Blessings, Rodney Stone Proverbs 30:5
