We are here for the second day of the Christian Film Academy. Mr. Phillips is presenting a talk called Toward Epistemologically Self-Conscious Films. Your first question is probably, what does "epistemology" mean? In its most basic definition, it means "the theory of knowledge." It is the philosophical question of how we know, what we know, and how we know what we know. So far, no word from Mr. Phillips regarding the actual title of the presentation.

One of the first points that was made is this, which Mr. Phillips calls "Doug's Theory":

"When we are sufficiently mature to produce the right films, God will provide the resources and opportunity."

In other words, don't expect God to open the floodgates of heaven and bless your efforts when you are spiritually and presuppositionally immature. Again, emphasis on a biblical worldview as a prerequisite for Christian filmmaking.
