Rick Santorum, former senator of Pennsylvania, announced a few days ago that he is becoming the CEO of Echolight Studios, a Christian film company. This is a surprising change for Santorum, but it should be very interesting to see what comes of this. Santorum said in a news release, "We know the power that movies have to impact our lives, and there is a big market out there that wants films that reaffirm the values most American families share. EchoLight is a new door into that movie excellence and to more of it. This is a chance to support and cultivate filmmakers within the faith community to develop cinema for wider audiences."
Echolight Studios has made a variety of Christian films, and has a new film coming to theaters soon, The Redemption of Henry Myers. Learn more about it on our website, or find out more about Echolight Studios on their website.
