Presentation Titles & Descriptions

True Story
Whether it’s documentary storytelling or adapting a real event to a feature film, the process of weaving together stories based in reality is invigorating. From years of award-winning, documentary filmmaking experiences to countless projects in the “reality” realm to his current work developing a feature film based on a true story, Ken Carpenter brings his love for real people and real stories to this session that explores successful techniques for bringing true stories to film.

All in the Family
The crossroads of film and family is taking a new turn as more and more families are experiencing the benefits of working together in the film arena. This session explores the rewards realized when families team together to make a film. Producer/Director Ken Carpenter has worked with his brother, Rod, for many years. And most of his shoots include at least a few other family members on the crew.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Ken Carpenter and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
