Sister Batten Productions Offers Exclusive Opportunity for Faith-Based Film Partnership

When it comes to the box office, God is good.

In 2014, David A.R.White produced and starred in God's Not Dead, an unapologetic, unsubtle Christian drama that became a word-of-mouth hit, earning $62 million against a shoestring $1.2 million budget. Today, the film—about a college student whose faith is challenged by an atheistic philosophy professor—is the fifth-most-profitable movie by percentage in cinema history, with a return on investment of 2,627 percent (positioning it, ironically, directly behind Grease).

And movie audiences want more, according to a survey of 1,054 Americans from Nashville-based LifeWay Research. Researchers found that half of Americans (56 percent) say they wish there were more movies with Christian values.

"Faith-based movies are no longer a niche," said Scott McConnell, director of LifeWay Research. "It's smart economics—if you make a film that appeals to that audience, they will show up."

In the spirit of these statistics, filmmaker and playwright Tina Batten of Sister Batten Productions extends an invitation to film investors, churches, ministries and individuals to join her by partnering in the making of her current offering 'Second Chance' the Movie. This film promotes healing and reconciliation. Healing of those deeply embedded wounds from the past and serves as a call to Repentance!

Second Chance Plot Outline

After years of blocking her blessings, a former evangelist realizes that she has to surrender completely to God in order to fight and overcome the guilt of killing her sister. The film is about Letting Go and Let God!

Those interested in exploring the opportunity can contact Mrs. Batten at or visit the website for additional information -

Tina Batten's inspirational journey is the stuff of legends.

With such titles as "Encourage Yourself in The Lord", "She Never Lost Her Praise," and "It Ain't Over Til GOD Say It's Over!" it's no wonder why Sister Batten has received the nickname and title of "The Female Tyler Perry."
