This is put on by Act One, from their web page http://www.actoneprogram.com/ they say:

Act One trains and mentors Christians of all denominations for careers in mainstream film and television. We prepare our students to produce film and TV projects that combine mastery of craft with great depth and meaning. As a non-profit organization, we are wholly devoted to the professional and spiritual development of our students.

I've listened through the first one, it is interesting..

There are 6 speakers, notably is Peter Kreeft and Barbara Nicolosi (the blogger mentioned above)

This was the third talk in a series presented at the Act One Story Symposium, held in October of 2008 at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
