Angel Studios CCO Jeffrey Harmon on the surprise hit of the summer, 'Sound of Freedom.'
Thank you for another excellent interview. I was skeptical about this movie and I haven’t seen it (don’t know if I will), but I really enjoyed hearing this company’s process for picking projects. Love seeing not another action hero movies getting some love. We need more uplifting and just plain nice movies at the theater. Life is too stressful and dark at the moment not to enjoy better movies.
I might go to a movie about Mother Cabrini.
I was annoyed that you were doing this until I was glad you did it - so I could learn something. The whole “faith based” entertainment sector makes me cringe a bit, but the business model Harmon describes isn’t even a little crazy. I wish you had gotten a clearer answer to how the pay-it-forward tickets figure into the box office data. (You asked the question exactly the fight way but you got a very detailed question you hadn’t asked😉). I haven’t seen the movie; may or may not see it or the one he promised upcoming. But I’m glad to know how the whole thing works - all the better to evaluate word-of-mouth recommendations I get for their productions. Heaven, to me, is where all decisions are made based on real thought and information, so thanks for making some more information available.
So easy to pull at people’s heartstrings and deceive them-this is Mike Flynn and his attempt to form a militia-yeah, keep sending your hard earned $ cause they are too f-ing lazy to earn it honestly. You will rue the day.
