Making The Daniel Project
As film makers what is your aim for this production?
We believe that recorded eschatological events found within ancient biblical texts merit serious investigation primarily because of the impact they claim to present to the human race and its environment. If there is truth behind these claims, then the resultant concluding effect on every living creature on this earth will be significant, if not catastrophic.

With all preconceived beliefs and arrogance put to one side, individuals should be given the opportunity to know the facts in a rational, easy to understand manner, making informed decisions about how they will deal with destiny should these future predictions become reality.
