                changes into butterfly to that of a person going

                pillar that changes into a beautiful butterfly and flies
                away, granddad has just changed. He flew up to
                heaven. Santa plays a part in helping to soothe little
                Katie’s broken heart at the loss of her granddad. How
                do any of us understand and deal with death?

 When a bus-load of women's college soccer players get stranded on their way to a bi-
kini car-wash fundraiser, they decide to set-up shop in front of an abandoned gas station
 on the edge of town. Little do they know the place is the stalking-grounds for a homi-

                                                         at a small church which has been
                                                         destroyed by greed, betrayal, and

                                                         his father has died, and the
                                                         church's leadership has only made
                                                         things worse. Then one night
                                                         Gabe has a vision. Struck blind,
Gabe is compelled to take a message of judgment to the church. The message is clear:
the church has lost their spiritual sight, and they must change. Further revelations push
Gabe to act out what he is told in bizarre ways — an idea which is not received well by
the group he is forced to preach against. Gabe quickly finds himself torn between a
voice that will not go away and the congregation that raised him. I REVEAL is the
story of a modern day prophet; it poses the question of what kind of message such a
prophet would bring to those who claim to follow God today.

                       Sellers' first step on the journey back to filmmaking was to create Pacwood Films, a
                       Philippine-based production company, under which he produced three domestic Philip-
                       pine movies. Sellers' first Hollywood co-production was 1992' s Rage. In 1993, Sellers
followed this up with another international co-production, Fortunes of War starring Martin Sheen, Michael
Ironsides, and Haing Ngor. Sellers then wrote and produced several documentaries including Rising Above
the Storm, about the departure of the U.S. Navy from Subic Bay. He followed this with Legacy in 1999 star-
ring David Hasselhoff and Rod Steiger, and Doomsdayer in 2000, starring Udo Kier, Brigitte Nielsen, and
Joe Lara. Sellers began spending more time in Los Angeles, where he executive produced Quicksand starring
Michael Dudikoff, Control starring Sean Young, and Silence starring Kristy Swanson. In early 2002, Sellers
curtailed his film executive work to focus on writing, first completing The American, about a CIA officer in
                                                                         STEVEN SHEA
Afghanistan in the weeks after 9/11, which he optioned to a major studio. He then wrote Vlad, an historical
horror-adventure film he also directed, filming on location in Romania with a cast that included Billy Zane,
Brad Dourif, and Francesco Quinn.. He followed up Vlad by co-writing and producing Karla, a true crime
drama based on the court transcripts from the murder trials of Canada's most infamous serial killers, Paul
Bernardo and Karla Homolka. Karla which starred Laura Prepon, Misha Collins, and Tess Harper, was re-
leased by Monterey Media in January, 2007.

                        Beneath The Blue
Alyssa Harker, an 18-year-old dolphin researcher working with her famous scientist father Hawk,
becomes romantically involved with an older and somewhat mysterious tourist named Craig.
Alyssa's heart is broken when Craig, leading a secret identity as a Naval officer, is on a mission
that threatens the research center and Rasca, a wild dolphin with whom Alyssa has a powerful
bond. A plot of espionage, conspiracy, and kidnapping evolves as Alyssa find her loyalties tested,
and the tale leads to a graveyard of dead dolphins and whales near the location of the notorious
underwater testing of US Navy Sonar. Alyssa and Hawk together find themselves on the trail to
rescue Rasca and save other marine mammals at risk -- while Craig finds himself trapped in an
increasingly complex moral dilemma that will force him to choose once and for all where his alle-
giance lies.
