"Unsung Hero" Movie Shoot at Dover
A very rare thing happened in Shelby
County on Monday October 17th and Tuesday the 18th. A film
crew descended on Dover Baptist Church to work on a new
movie. Dover will serve as the backdrop for a portion of the
movie. Bro. Bradley Gray had been contacted by movie
producers to see if the church was willing to be used in the
production of their latest Christian movie. Bro. Bradley
brought the idea to the trustees and deacons who agreed to
allow the church to be used in the movie. The film they are
working on is called Unsung Hero, and they're producing the
film with the Christian music band, For King and Country.
It's a biographical film about the Smallbone family's
immigration from Sydney, Australia to Nashville, Tennessee.
The film covers their struggles throughout the process,
their rise to fame in the music industry, as well as
presenting a family who comes together to pray to God in
their time of struggle. The producers of this film have made
many acclaimed Christian films such as Facing the Giants,
Fireproof, Courageous, Moms' Night Out, Woodlawn, I Can Only
Imagine, I Still Believe, and many more. The crew worked 12
hour days to get everything they needed done on time. The
film company also wanted to utilize the church's dining area
for lunch, hair/makeup and wardrobe rooms. The parsonage was
used for dressing rooms for the actors. They needed the
entire parking lot for their crew and vehicles. They also
hired a team who would also clean up the church after they
were done. It would look exactly the same as they found it.
They also set up a large tent in the church’s backyard for
more work area. In addition, there was an off-site staging
area down Dover Road in a large tent. When Bro. Bradley
asked the producers how they knew about/found Dover Baptist
Church, they replied, “you all have the best Facebook Page
we have ever seen!” The movie will be out sometime in 2024.
For all the work they did at Dover, the producer said it
would amount to about 6 minutes of actual film in the movie.
You ask….why did this take so long for you to post?
Contractually, we could not put out anything about the movie
until after November 11, 2022. So, we were just keeping up
our end of the deal.
