This completes the “from the set” portion of the video blog, as filming is complete. Stay tuned for more videos during the post production process and the release of the film for a behind the scenes look at what goes into editing, laying in music, completing, and ultimately releasing a film.


(Director’s note: In this video I mentioned a potential sound problem in that the air conditioner in the hospital room was very loud, and I was hoping it wouldn’t be too big of a problem in post production. We’ve since listened to the scene, and it doesn’t sound as bad as we feared. Not only that, the post production company in charge of sweetening or adjusting sound issues took a pass at the scene and was able to isolate the sound and reduce it. So…the scene looks like it’ll turn out great.)

Welcome to the Behind the Scenes blog for the feature film “What If…” Here you’ll find videos, pictures, and text updates and information that will hopefully be both entertaining and educational.

“What If…” tells the story of Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo), who 15 years ago made a decision to leave his girlfriend Wendy (Kristy Swanson), and ultimately his faith, in order to pursue riches and success in the business world. Now on the verge of marriage to an equally materialistic fiance, he is visited by an angelic tow truck driver (John Ratzenberger) who shows him what his life would look like had he followed his original calling. Before he can argue, Ben is suddenly married to Wendy, the father of two daughters, and a new pastor at a struggling church. If he wants to escape back to his old life, he must first learn some important lessons about commitment, family, and God.
