Blog Article 5: Executive Producer – John Grow of Ambient Picture Productions

While the Christian Renaissance of music is occurring across the United States of America, an equally powerful metamorphosis of Christian film is also sending shockwaves to shake Hollywood. John Grow of Ambient Picture Productions represents one of many independent film companies arising to revolutionize the industry for Christianity.

I was first introduced to Grow through a friendship with his two sons, Michael and Alex, in high school. Being new to my Christian faith, the Grows served as an archetype of what a healthy family following Christ looked like with their interactions with one another and loving their fellow neighbors. The Grows have a historical legacy of trusting the Lord and reaping the fruits of their labors which John discusses briefly in his blog entry “Hawaiian Business”.

Grow serves as founder and executive producer of Ambient Picture Productions and also has a WordPress blog entitled Producing Success which discusses his own personal reflections on Christianity within his life experiences. My personal favorites were “Hawaiian Business”, “Dungeon and Dragons in the Church”, and “What California Teaches Me about God and Christianity”.

I stumbled onto the genius of Grow’s executive producer skills by watching a movie trailer on his LinkedIn page about the upcoming movie entitled Ragamuffin based upon the life of Christian musician Rich Mullins. As I watched the trailer, I was moved by the story of Mullins and totally awe struck at the talent put into this trailer given that Grow has stated that this was not the final cut for the trailer on his LinkedIn profile page. The trailer portrayed Mullins’s life as a maverick Christian artist who struggled with the commercialization of the Christian music industry as well as his own personal struggles in following Christ. After I watched the trailer, I felt as though I had witnessed some extravagant budget production that equally compared to such popular Christian movies as A Second Chance (2006), Fireproof (2008), Courageous (2011), and The Bible Miniseries (2013) on the History Channel. The film shots and editing demonstrated impeccable precision and professionalism.

Grow has a history of a successful entrepreneurship with the creation and selling of companies Object Innovation, Inc. and BridgeGate International. Grow currently manages a film company called Ambient Picture Productions that is working on three film projects. You can support Grow by seeing Ragamuffin in theatres when it is released, following his blog, and supporting him in prayer as he seeks to influence the media culture through film for the Gospel message.
