2 Q BY MR. QUISENBERRY: During that meeting was the
next step in the efforts to produce this "end times"
My father rarely makes it that easy. He
6 probably said something
to the effect that the board of
7 directors would meet
and contact you concerning the next
Did you discuss how much money might be needed
10 to make this movie?
You cannot determine the amount of money needed
12 to make a movie until the
script is finished.
Did you tell that to your father?
He's been making movies a lot longer than I
15 have. I'm sure he knew that already.
So what was the next steps in the production
17 that were discussed at that
18 MR. RAWLS:
Objection, assumes that next steps were
19 discussed. Assumes facts not in evidence.
20 THE WITNESS:
I remember the overall feeling of the
21 meeting being positive from
what he had read. That's what
22 I remember about the meeting.
Q BY MR. QUISENBERRY:
And he said that he was
24 going to discuss something
with the board of directors?
It would be standard practice for him to say, "I
1 will discuss this with
the board of directors."
And what was your understanding of what he was
3 going to discuss with
the board of directors at that
MR. RAWLS: Objection, calls for speculation.
6 Assumes facts not in
7 MR. COATE:
8 THE WITNESS:
Whether he thought that this was a
9 project that fit the
formulas and goals and desire of the
10 TBN Network.
BY MR. QUISENBERRY: Was there any discussion at
12 that meeting with regard
to who that target market for
13 this movie would be?
14 MR. RAWLS:
Objection, assumes facts not in evidence
15 and "target market" is vague
16 MR. QUISENBERRY: Let me restate that and strike it.
Was there any discussion who the target audience
18 for this movie project would
19 MR. RAWLS:
Objection, assumes facts not in evidence.
20 And the phrase "target audience"
21 MR. COATE:
22 THE WITNESS:
BY MR. QUISENBERRY: Was there any discussion
24 during that first meeting
with regard to who might direct
25 such a movie?
A I don't recall taking the meeting beyond the
2 initial positive feeling
of what he had read.
What was the next step in the production after
4 that meeting?
The next significant step would have been news
6 of their desire to fund
the script, based upon the
7 treatment that they
I'm sorry. You said their decision to fund?
9 THE WITNESS: I
don't remember what I said.
10 MR. RAWLS:
He said "their desire to fund."
BY MR. QUISENBERRY: Oh, their desire to fund.
12 When you say, "significant
step" were there any other
13 steps in between that first
meeting with your father and
14 Barton Green, and the news
of their decision to fund the
16 MR. RAWLS:
Objection. As we said, the news of their
17 desire to fund a script.
18 THE WITNESS:
There could have been some phone
19 conversation that would have
led up to the news of their
20 desire to fund a script. But I don't recall anything but
21 the bigger points in
relationship to those early stages.
BY MR. QUISENBERRY: Was there any work done on
23 the treatment that you know
of between that first meeting
24 with your father and Barton
Green and the news of their
25 desire to fund --
-- the screenplay?
How did you hear of their desire to fund the
I don't recall.
