Do you have any planned changes to CFDb?
CFDb is constantly going through changes, as any growing website will do. I would like to make CFDb more user-friendly by adding more features like a favorites list, so users can keep a list of their favorite films right on the site.
What do you see as the future of CFDb?
I would like to see CFDb become more like IMDb, with all the cool features that help users learn more about a film and its cast. Being able to see all the films a star has been in, as well as others like directors and producers, would be really helpful. Everything takes quite a bit of time. When I have the time, I work on the site.
If you could personally change an aspect of the Christian film industry, what would that be? Why?
Well, I think the aspect that needs to change the most is how people feel about Christian films. Most people feel they are very poor quality, from the acting to directing, even to the plot. For the most part I agree. I have seen many poorly made films put out by Christians. This has turned many away from the industry altogether. This is very sad because there are good films being made, they are just not getting out to the people.
What, in your opinion, makes a film "Christian"?
This is a very hard question. I have to deal with this every week on CFDb, and I still have not been able to find a standard. Every film is different and I have found there is not one rule that can be applied to them all. I try to look at each one differently and judge it by what the point of the film is. What is the film trying to say? I know this is vague, but so is the way I judge a film.
