It was a great experience. While I’ve been on site conducting interviews at events like the International Christian Retail show, Desiring God and The Gospel Coalition; the Hollywood scene was new to me. In all honesty, I would jump at the chance to be a part of more events like this in the future. It was a a privilege to be able to share my feedback with the studio prior to the release of the film.

Awesome post, Shaun. I was so happy for you. I can see back to the humble beginnings of CFM in your basement and the whiteboard of ideas we were throwing out. I think your reporting and blogging continue to be a blessing to Christians everywhere. Glad you had this opportunity!

Blessings, brother.

And scoring a four star junket at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills did nothing to influence your opinion! Extraordinary.

I have heard that God isn’t mentioned in this movie. Is that true? If so, how do they explain Noah needing to build the Ark?

God is referred to as the creator throughout the film. He (God) communicates with Noah about the impending deluge and the need to build an ark through visions.

[…] NOAH Press Junket Recap – “The film does a masterful job of drawing us into an antediluvian world that as Genesis 6:11 says is quite ruined. We see that Noah has a burden to continue tending the garden per se, just like his forefather Adam, which is in direct contrast to much of the rest of humanity portrayed in the film, who all seem bent on destroying the parts of the earth that are not yet ruined. Early on, critics (most of them who hadn’t seen the film) complained that the movie was going to have too much of an environmentalist bent. And I’ll be the first to say that care of creation is certainly a strong theme in the film, but it didn’t feel over the top or out of place to me. I can accept the idea of somebody that generationally close to Adam and Eve still having a burden to work the garden.” – Shaun Tabatt […]
