SHEEPSHED'S 'MUTANT' VFX IN POST-PRODUCTION
Sheepshed Entertainment founder, writer, director and producer Katherine Johnson.
Sheepshed Entertainment, which operates in North Alabama, announced two projects are currently in post-production.
“One is a comedic short imagining what it was like for Adam and Eve to deliver Cain, without having seen a human baby,” Sheepshed founder and producer, Katherine Johnson, told CM. “The other is a story about a group of mutants who try to recruit a recluse, to join their cause. It is a unique film for this niche of the Christian industry, with X-Men style characters and VFX.”
Two new short films are scheduled to go before the cameras in September and a music video titled The Ballet Song will be released.
Johnson told CM Sheepshed has a sitcom in development, which isn’t an easy task, as appropriate content for the genre isn’t easy to come by.
“Finding clean series is increasingly difficult,” Johnson said.
Sheepshed Entertainment reported that their award-winning short film BUMP, released on January 27 this year and available on DVD, has expanded its audience reach. BUMP recently premiered on Amazon Prime Video, giving the futuristic, pro-life film a “bump” in exposure.
Written, produced, and directed by Johnson, BUMP stars Bethany Davenport, J.C. Scott and Robert Thomason. Principal photography took place in Huntsville, March 21-31, in 2017.
Johnson shared that her production company hasn't enjoyed the progress she anticipated due to personal physical challenges.
“This is incredibly below my projected output for this year, due to my undergoing spine surgery in 2018 and a recovery of limited mobility,” she said. “However, God's plan is perfect and He is using all for His glory.”
Aside from BUMP, Sheepshed Entertainment has released three other short films this year, including Colors of Brilliance, Meredith Johnson: Diana’s Best and Guilt. Sheepshed’s projects are produced with the ultimate goal of seeing people trust in Christ as their Savior.

“We tried filming it earlier last year but things went south with the director of photography,” Allen told CM. “So now have to refilm everything.”
Allen conveyed that a fundraising campaign is coming soon to fund the movie, and to help the cast and crew have gas money to get back and forth to shooting locations.

“It's a story about a woman named who receives a letter from Jesus saying he is going to visit her and it changes her life and helps others, as well,” Allen explained. “This is a film we believe needs to be made to let us know, regardless of anything, Jesus is with us and we are not alone.”
The film is based on a short story by an unknown author, with additional writing by writer and director, Allen. The completed project will have a church premiere and release on YouTube. Other distribution platforms are being explored, as well.

Producer De'Ja McCray has announced a new short film, Never Say Never, is currently in the editing process. The project, written and directed by McCray, features Cassia Sherrill, Samantha Lindsey, and McCray in principal roles.
“It's about a girl named Victoria, who believes she can follow her dreams,” McCray told CM, concerning the film’s storyline. “Another female, named Sarah, who she holds a grudge against, doubts that she can become a director. So, Victoria lets her know that only God can judge her, and she doesn't have the right to tell her what she can do in life.”
The film, which will run five minutes, takes place in character Victoria’s apartment.
McCray explained the editing process has been lengthy and can't put a release date on the project.
“I have no idea when it will be done, to be honest, McCray said.
CM will announce the release in an upcoming article. Visit and subscribe to the De'Ja McCray YouTube Channel today!
