Producer Dave Moody Signs Feldman to Rusty Whitener-created Film

(Nashville, Tenn) Four years ago, after thirty years in the motion picture industry, Emmy-winning director Steve Feldman decided to pack up and leave Hollywood for greener pastures.

“When I realized that 75% of the nation’s population lives within a 700-mile radius of Nashville, I knew I’d found the right town,” Feldman said. He moved his family to Music City and settled in, quietly meeting with fellow industry veterans at Edgehill Café, taking his time to find the right story. “By living here, I find stories that are appropriate for the general population, not just the ‘idea’ of the population that Hollywood holds.”

Now, four years after his move and hundreds of meetings later, Feldman is once again applying his directing skills to a project—“A Season of Miracles” written by Rusty Whitener, produced by Elevating Entertainment, and based on the novel of the same name that released from Kregel Books in August.

“As soon as I met Steve earlier this year, I knew I wanted to work with him,” said Dave Moody, President of Elevating Entertainment. “His credentials and background will be tremendously helpful in creating a quality film from Rusty’s screenplay.”

Filming is set to begin next year. For more information, visit Moody and Feldman are available for interviews.
