Note from Angie
I wanted to pursue a lifelong dream of acting and decided to participate in the AMTC summer convention 2009 with AMTC Jacksonville Direct. It was such an encouragement to see how many of us wanted to glorify God with the talent He has given us. I had an amazing time and met a lot of influential people in the industry.
Back in February I received an email from AMTC requesting for adult and children bilingual actors to submit their headshot and resume to Advantage Models and Talent. It didn’t say for what or whom the project was for, but since it came from a reputable source I decided to submit. A few weeks had passed and had forgotten all about it. I wrestled with the continuation of my career as an actress and prayed for the Lord’s guidance. The next day on the radio station I hear the promise of the day as Joshua 1:9 (Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.) I thought, “Uh, OK that was weird “ Then on the following day I get an email stating I have been chosen to receive an application for the resume and headshot sent weeks before. It continued to say the project was for a new film with Sherwood pictures titled Courageous (…huh, imagine that), better known for their works: Fireproof and Facing the Giants. I was ecstatic! I know God does not work by coincidence but thought,”WOW could that have been just spelled out for me any clearer?” Once I submitted my application I was invited to audition and later a call back. I was offered the role of Carmen Martinez and we started filming April 26th, 2010. On set I have been surrounded by extremely talented people who love the Lord and seek to glorify Him through this film in every way. I am so blessed to be using my talent and working in a film I’m hoping will have a positive influence globally.
