Act One is a Christian community of entertainment industry professionals who train and equip storytellers to create works of truth, goodness and beauty.
As an educational and professional collective, Act One trains, supports and provides opportunity for creative development to both emerging and established writers and producers.
During the initial, intensive writing and producing programs, Christian content creators are provided the tools necessary to create works of beauty for worldwide audiences.
World-class, award-winning writers and producers guide our high-end, leading-edge programs and events and serve to support the life and careers of our professional alums.
In giving back to the entertainment industry, Act One offers creative services that further promote our core values of truth, goodness and beauty.
TRUTH: Madeline L’Engle said, “Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.” The art we create can help people see the Truth that lies behind it all.
GOODNESS: Goodness is infused in all that we create. Are you being called to do that? Come join us!
BEAUTY: Act One seeks to create stories of truth, goodness, and beauty. But what is beauty? Where do we find it?
