After watching, would you do us a favor? We need this teaser to be seen by as many people as possible! This is crucial, not only to spread awareness of the film, but also to raise support for the Kickstarter campaign! Will you please help by sharing via email, Facebook, Google+, and Twitter? Thank you so much for helping to make this God-honoring, family-friendly movie possible!

Polycarp - Composer

Please join us in welcoming composer Benjamin Botkin to the Polycarp team! Ben is perhaps best known for his work on the independent feature film Ace Wonder, and he recently composed music for Building the Machine, a documentary produced by HSLDA.

Benjamin is dedicated to taking the realm of music captive to the obedience of Christ. Since he started composing for film and visual media in 2005, Benjamin has composed the music for several feature, documentary, short, and promotional films. He is self-taught in composition, arrangement, and orchestration. He is privileged to serve the Lord alongside his wife, Audri, and their two little boys.

A period drama like Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods will need a rich and compelling musical score to bring the story to life, and we're happy to welcome Benjamin for this important role!

Kickstarter backers will receive the Polycarp Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for pledges at the $45 level and up (along with a Polycarp DVD and other great rewards)!

Polycarp - Behind the Scenes

We've been bursting with excitement, waiting for the moment when we can share a special 14 minute behind the scenes documentary on the making of Polycarp. That time has come!

Why tell the story of a little-known church father and his stand against Roman persecution in the 2nd Century? What led the young filmmaking team of Joe and Jerica Henline to choose a difficult historical setting for their first feature film? See how their vision is becoming reality in this behind the scenes glimpse of the upcoming feature film, Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods.

Join the Polycarp cast and crew to see what goes into re-creating the world of ancient Smyrna; from the idea stage, to the creation of authentic sets and costumes; all for the purpose of making a compelling feature-length movie that will honor the Lord Jesus Christ.

Polycarp - KICKSTARTER

We did the hard work of getting Polycarp through production. Now we need to raise a minimum of $25,000 to get this feature film over the finish line! The more we go beyond our $25,000 goal, the bigger the impact this movie will have. Please note that if we don't meet our fundraising goal of at least $25,000 by April 25, we won't receive a penny. Kickstarter is all or nothing. If we are not 100% successfully funded, all pledges will be cancelled.

What should audiences expect?

While not an epic action film, audiences should expect an authentic and heartfelt story that will inspire viewers of all ages.  This character-driven period drama has potential to become a timeless movie for the whole family to enjoy!

Our number one goal is to make this a God-honoring movie. We have sought to make decisions prayerfully, and with good counsel. We believe the story will communicate an important message of being willing to sacrifice all for the sake of Christ. Our prayer is that the Lord would use Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods to touch many lives around the world!

Henline Productions - "Polycarp"

I am currently working as the camera operator on an upcoming historical feature film Polycarp!

"The full-length feature film, inspired by the research and writings of Rick Lambert, will depict the story of second century church father, Polycarp, the bishop of Smyrna, who faced severe persecution at the hand of Roman oppressors. Joe and Jerica's father and also the film's executive producer, Jerry Henline, says, “We are seeking to use the medium of film to inspire today's generation to stand for their faith against all opposition.”"

"We are excited about the headway being made here in Loveland, Ohio, and we look forward to keeping you updated throughout the months ahead. Please keep the team in your prayers!"

Henline Productions presents "Polycarp"

Persecuted Early Church Father the Subject of Newly-Announced Feature Film

CINCINNATI, OH, Jan. 24-- 'Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods' has been announced as the next film project from Joe and Jerica Henline, an award-winning brother and sister filmmaking team.  'Polycarp' will be their first feature and the first film made under the banner of Henline Productions, formerly J&J Productions.  Joe will direct and Jerica will write the screenplay. 

The full-length feature film, based on a novel authored by Pastor Rick Lambert, will depict the story of second century church father, Polycarp, the bishop of Smyrna, who faced severe persecution at the hand of Roman oppressors.  Joe and Jerica's father and also the film's executive producer, Jerry Henline, says, “We are seeking to use the medium of film to inspire today's generation to stand for their faith against all opposition.” 

Joe (age 17) and Jerica (age 19) were the filmmakers behind last year's 'Lady Jane Grey,' a short film that earned them the Best Young Filmmaker award at the 2012 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, Best Young Filmmaker at the GloryReelz Christian Film Festival, Golden Crown Award (Best Student Production) at the International Christian Visual Media Festival, Best Young Filmmaker at The Attic Film Festival, and finalist nominees at others.

The Henlines are assembling a professional film crew with experience in a variety of independent Christian films.  “The pieces are falling into place,” says Jerry Henline, “and we are excited about the team that is working with us to produce a film with excellence and for the glory of God.”  

Like most independent films, 'Polycarp' will be made with the combined efforts of many talented actors and crew members.  Films on this scale are made possible only by prayer and financial support from people who strongly believe in the film's mission. 

Information about the production and release of 'Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods' will be announced at the website of Henline Productions: www.henlineproductions.com.
