For this production, Mr. Gordon Robertson himself came to Israel to film introductions to the upcoming documentary.
Gordon is the CEO of CBN. He is also currently producing the new CBN Superbook animated series, which follows the Bible-based adventures of two time-traveling children and their robot friend. He also founded CBN Asia and was the executive producer of the 2016 docudrama Pocahontas: Dove of Peace.
Director of this new project is Erin Zimmerman, who has been producing for CBN for the past 20 years. Her more recent projects as a director and writer are “The Hope: The Rebirth of Israel”, “To Life: How Israeli Volunteers are Changing the World”, and “In Our Hands: The Battle for Jerusalem”.
Biblical Productions provided production services in Israel for “In our Hands: The Battle for Jerusalem”, which tells the story of the 6 Day War through the eyes of the IDF’s 55th Paratrooper Brigade, highlighting their role in the liberation of Jerusalem. The docudrama combines dramatic reenactments with interviews of veterans of the Six-Day War and archival footage and photos.
For this shoot, we filmed in the most amazing locations all over Jerusalem, with a top noch local crew and top of the line equipment.
It will be a 4-part series, which will be released around Easter.
CBN has been a client of Biblical Productions for more than 4 years and it was a great pleasure to have Mr. Robertson himself with us on set.
We are very much looking forward to see the final result.
