My dream writing job would be me writing my own television/movie series. This series would be based on several ideas that I have created and developed over the course of my life.

Madison Gotthardt

Madison Gotthardt — "Home"

In my mind's dream world, I picture myself utilizing my storytelling skills to write a dramatic screenplay for a big studio. Perhaps more realistically, I would also love to create content and be a writer on a television show. As long as I'm writing, I will be content!

Sage Haynes

Sage Haynes — "Hidden Objects"

My dream job would include collaborating with other writers on film and television scripts while constantly being challenged to grow in my writing. Exploring different genres and techniques with other creative minds would be the ideal.

Ethan Montgomery

Ethan and Luke Montgomery — "Shadow Valley"

Ethan: I dream of telling stories that make people think about things that matter, such as relationships, dreams, careers, and ultimately, eternity. Stories can really move people, and I want to speak God's truth through biblical themes.

Luke Montgomery

Luke: My dream is to write and direct original films that appeal to audiences above sequels or remakes. More than that, I want to bring the joy and peace of Christ into the film community, where I believe it is lacking. My goal is not to find purpose in film, but to let my purpose in Christ show through my films and my life.
