Production Update, with Yvette and Brooklyn Hampton

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you for your amazing support, encouragement, and prayers over the past several weeks. God is doing BIG things and we are so excited to share them with you.

For those of you who read our last email, you know that last month we made an important decision not to move forward with Kirk Cameron and his production team at CAMFAM Studios. This decision was made with A LOT of prayer and we are extremely grateful for the time we had getting to know Kirk and his team. They are a group of godly men who are serving the Lord with their gifts and talents, but the Lord simply made it clear that this partnership was not part of His plan for Schoolhouse Rocked or CAMFAM.

Following that decision, we asked you to pray for the Lord to guide us, and He has! We are SO excited to tell you that in a few weeks, we are driving west from Georgia to Washington to complete the filming of Schoolhouse Rocked with Heidi St. John!

The remainder of what needs to be filmed to complete the movie is the narrative portion. We have interviewed several fantastic homeschool experts and families, but in order for Schoolhouse Rocked to be an entertaining and compelling film, there must be an engaging and relatable storyline to tie all the interviews together. That’s where Heidi comes in. We will join Heidi at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center in Vancouver, Washington to talk about the ups and downs, benefits and blessings, challenges and victories of homeschooling.

For those of you who are not familiar with Heidi, she is a homeschool mom of 7 and an outspoken advocate for truth. She is dedicated to changing culture through the faithful application of God’s Word. She is a popular speaker and author, and host of the Heidi St. John podcast. You will be BLESSED by her important part in Schoolhouse Rocked!

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! As you can imagine, this cross-country journey and filming in Washington is going to be quite costly. God has been faithful to provide for production up until now, through people like yourself, as well as a few awesome sponsors, and we know He will continue to do so.

In order to complete filming with Heidi, we need to raise approximately $30k, in the next few weeks, for crew, travel, equipment, and other costs. It’s a big number, we know. But, we also know that our God is really big and that where He guides, He ALWAYS provides! Our trip is planned, our family is packed up, and we are going! Will you help us get there?

Here’s how YOU can help – 

PRAY~ God hears our prayers and is faithful and able to answer. We have continuously seen Him at work throughout this important project.

DONATE~ Make a tax-deductible donation of any amount.

SHARE~ Share this message with friends and family who believe in the importance of homeschooling.

CONNECT~ We are actively seeking qualified investors and corporate sponsors to partner with us to complete the film and to market the film for a theatrical release. If you know anyone who might be interested, please forward this email or send them here to learn more.

We are thankful for you, the homeschool community, who continue to walk this journey with us through prayer, encouragement, and financial support.

We are in this together and can’t wait to update you on God’s amazing provision!

Yvette Hampton, Producer

Soli Deo gloria!
P.s. For those of you wondering, yes, we already filmed an excellent interview with Heidi (available here for Backstage Pass Members), however, the narrative we will shoot in Washington will weave through the entire movie and bring a new and important to the film.
