In what is sure to be our most emotional story to date, God's Will tells the story of two minister best friends, each caught up in their own crisis of faith. Keith and Aric put this story together drawing on personal experiences and those of their minister friends. The life of a professional minister can be quite fulfilling, yet oftentimes it is excruciatingly challenging. The external pressures and temptations, coupled with the internal desire to please God and serve his creation can become too much to bear for some.
God's will stars Aric Grooms and Ron Barba and features Nicki Valastro, Madison Setzer and a spectacular ensemble cast. Its soundtrack features original music by Troy Ervin and Cassidy Joy and other incredible musical talents. God's Wills is currently in its festival run, already having been screened in festivals at Regal Live in Los Angeles, Cinema Village and The Producer's Club in NYC. The film has won several awards, including Best Director (Matt Williams) at the Newark International Film Festival and Best Feature at the Grove Film Festival and New York True Venture Film Festival. We'll continue our festival run into the fall and are set to release the film worldwide in October.
God's Will features many talented actors. Our principal cast includes Madison Setzer, Nicki Valastro, Ruby Garnett, Chelsea Gilson, Hannah Dannelly, Gail Paine and Cassidy Joy.
Fresh off his award winning collaboration with Aric and Keith for MidLife, award winning director Matt Williams directs this film, shot entirely on location in Southern Ohio, New Jersey and Florida. Matt brings out so much emotion from our cast that just pops out on screen!
Louis Kent is back with Aric Films for another collaboration. Louis is one of the finest young cinematographers in the industry and we'll keep working with him as long as we can afford him! Louis also serves as editor on this project.
Aric and Keith met in college as both of them were preparing for a career in full-time ministry. Their mutual love of basketball and the art of communicating beautiful stories made them fast friends. Their shared competitive nature drives them to eventually make Aric Films one of the leading film production companies in the world.
