The Salvation Army Vision Network Dedicates New Film Studio

Salvation Army Studio DedicationThe Salvation Army and the entertainment industry joined in celebration at the grand opening of The Salvation Army Vision Network Film Studio in Whittier, CA, last month.

The state-of-the-art studio houses the organization’s video-driven, call-to-social-action website, SAVN.tv, which provides a cause-oriented generation with the opportunity to get involved online in direct, unprecedented ways.

"It (the studio) presents a pace-setting opportunity for The Salvation Army to be on the virtual, missional, and evangelical cutting edge”, said Salvation Army Western Territory Commander Jim Knaggs.

Those who attended the dedication included actor Corbin Bernsen (best known for his roles in L.A. Law, Major League, and Psych) and filmmaker/author Phil Cooke, who called the momentous occasion “a great step forward.”

"Dramatic musical and theatrical productions have been a part of The Salvation Army since its beginning,” said Cooke, Co-Founder/President of Cooke Pictures and a member of the NRB Board of Directors.  “Now, the new Salvation Army Vision Network studios in Los Angeles will help them launch into the digital media age.  This is a great step forward for the Salvation Army, because the ‘digital mission field’ is the next great phase of global evangelism.”

Also present were Salvation Army representatives including Western Territory Commander Jim Knaggs, Lt. Colonel Doug Riley, Commissioner Joe Noland, and SAVN.tv Executive Director Guy Noland.

"The Salvation Army Vision Network is thrilled to finally launch our new state-of-the-art studio in Los Angeles,” remarked Noland. “We couldn't be happier with the buzz it's creating and the potential for introducing millions of new souls into the Kingdom through new-media efforts." 

Launched last September, SAVN.tv seeks to mobilize the Christian community, social activists, and other like-minded people that would be inclined to get involved with the world renowned nonprofit, but need some visual encouragement.

SAVN.tv provides a cause-oriented generation with the ability and opportunity to get involved directly online through film and video. Moreover, website users are given the opportunity to create their own personal social media "Mission Station," and get involved physically, financially, and spiritually in the mission of their choosing.
