Our annual conference will be held Sep 27, 2014 in Delta, Utah at the new high school.
It is an all day event from 8:30-4:30.  Please mark your calendars now to be

You will want to plan now to spend the whole day, as this years "bigger and better" conference will have 24 classes offered.

This years Keynote Speaker will be Tom C. Christensen grew up in a family of 10 children in Layton, Utah. After serving an LDS mission in parts of Ohio and West Virginia
he studied filmmaking at Brigham Young University and the University of Utah. He and his wife Katy have two children. They make their home Centerville, Utah.

His films range from The Mouths of Babes in 1979 to Ephraim's Rescue in 2013. As an American filmmaker T.C. is best known for films about Latter-day Saint pioneers. Among
these are Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration and Emma Smith: My Story, Only A Stonecutter and the John Tanner Story.

On such films as the first Work and the Glory, Christensen's cinematography was considered by some to be by far the best part of the film. In the summer of 2011, 17 Miracles was released across the country. The film depicts the Willie and Martin handcart companies and their struggles and witnessed miracles as they traveled across the plains to Salt Lake City in 1856 and set new expectations for LDS genre theatrical films.

He has won more than 270 national and international awards for his work in writing, editing, directing and producing movies and in 2010 was invited to join the very prestigious, American Society of Cinematographers.

For Christensen, it’s all about telling stories that will make a difference in people’s lives. T.C.’s films deal with ideas and stories that tap into inner feelings and thus the spiritual dimension,” Keith Merrill a mentor and fellow filmmaker, said. “When the spirit touches your heart in the middle of a movie, as so often happens in a T.C. Christensen film, there is no question hearts are touched, lives are adjusted and they make a difference.”
