Video: Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman: The Powerhouse Duo Behind “God’s Not Dead”

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 04/19/15 - updated on 06/08/17

Hollywood producers talk about their faith and the hopeful signs they see in the movie business

In this Aleteia interview, Zoe Romanowsky speaks with Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, the Hollywood writers and producers behind God’s Not Dead and the recently released film, Do You Believe?

Solomon and Konzelman are Catholics who believe the Lord is at work in Hollywood and modern technology is supporting a growing parallel industry of Christian film-making:

"To put it in neo-Marxist terms, faith-based films have stolen the means of production. They are making films without traditional studios or distribution… And the breaking of that mold is revolutionary." says Konzelman. 

Solomon agrees and says that we need to remember there’s a culture war going on:

"People have to realize, we’re at war, and this war is not with guns and bullets, but with scripts and cameras. We are vying for the heart of people who are indecisive and could be lost."
