Saddleback

“The Art of Catching Waves” – a Rick and Kay Warren biopic.

In 1979, Rick Warren and his wife Kay moved from Texas to the Saddleback Valley in southern California – “The Fastest Growing County In America.” What would happen over the next four decades was a story few would have anticipated.

I produced and cast this short biopic for Saddleback Church’s 40th Anniversary celebration event.
