Shooting the Prodigal, directed by David Powers. Released in March of 2016. A brash young Jewish filmmaker from New York (Sterling Hurst as Josh Blume), tries to help an overly-zealous Baptist preacher in south Alabama (Paul Wilson as Brother Bob Cross), make a movie about the Prodigal Son. In the process they both learn about the love and acceptance of the Prodigal’s father.
My debut as the lead role in a feature film.
(Update: Shooting the Prodigal has now been re-named, re-packaged and is being re-released as ‘By the Grace of Bob’ to appeal to a wider, more secular audience. Be on the lookout in the coming months.)
Shifting Gears, written by R. Keith Harris and directed by Jason Winn is currently in post production. Keep an eye out for this hilarious family comedy featuring Sterling as the MacDaddy!
