For months we've been prayerfully considering many different streaming and distribution platforms for our new show, Wild Brothers: Off the Couch Into Creation. The Lord has blessed us with many amazing opportunities to possibly partner with a number of platforms, each with their own pros and cons.
After much prayer and consideration, one platform has stuck out as the best fit.
ANGEL STUDIOS is a ground breaking platform that's committed to bringing light-amplifying stories to millions. Their streaming platform hosts smash hits like "The Chosen" and "The Wingfeather Saga".
We've been fans of Angel Studios for a while now, and have been encouraged by their boldness to blaze new trails in the world of Christian Media and beyond. We submitted the pilot episode of our new show for review on Angel Studios. We've passed the first two steps of review, and our pilot episode "Beyond the Bayou" is now on the Angel Guild, where Guild Members can view and choose which projects become the next big hit!
We're praying that Beyond the Bayou will pass the Angel Guild process so that we can move on to the next step... advertising and promoting the series to raise excitement about the release.
Launching Off the Couch Into Creation with Angel Studios would be incredible. They have an audience of 20 million and growing, and are proclaiming God's truth worldwide, and are on the front lines of Christian Media advancement. Angel Studios is also extremely unique in the fact that everything on their platform is free to the public. No subscription needed. For us, this is a huge plus, as it would allow anyone, anywhere, to watch Off the Couch Into Creation for free.
Angel Studios' groundbreaking method of crowd funding is also an extremely successful way of raising funds for projects, so future seasons with Angel could also be a possibility. We also see crowd funding as an amazing opportunity for the Body of Christ to work together to see God honoring content produced!
With all of this in mind, we feel like Angel would be the best case scenario, but God could have different plans. Like all of our projects, we are committing Off the Couch Into Creation to the Lord, knowing that He can do more than we can ever imagine. As Isaiah 55 reminds us, "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." With this in mind we trust that whether the show makes it on Angel or not, ultimately God's purposes will be carried out. We can't wait to see what they are!
We invite you to join us in prayer as we continue to take steps forward with Angel Studios, but would also ask that you pray that God would make it clear if Angel is the right platform for the show, or if it is not. We acknowledge the power and profound impact that prayer has in the lives of people, and thus covet all the prayers of those who lift us up as we move forward. Thank you and God Bless!
