Aiming for an audience greater than one: a pastor’s quest to make a Bible epic

Michael Jacob’s highly entertaining feature documentary Audience of One has been on the mainstream festival circuit for more than a year now, garnering rave reviews and awards—and yet failing to snare a distribution deal. The film traces the efforts of San Francisco pastor Richard Gazowsky to fulfill his calling from God: to write, produce, and direct a $200 million sci-fi Bible epic called Gravity—the “Best Film Ever Made”—and thereby establish a film studio that will crank out forty-seven feature films a year.

Past the Popcorn Managing Editor screened the film on DVD recently, courtesy of the film’s producer, and found it to be engaging, witty, and cautionary.

In fact, he was so taken with the film that he felt others ought to know about it even though we still don’t have the chance to see it either in theaters or at home.
