We had the good fortune of connecting with Danny Machado and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Danny, how does your business help the community?
Most people don’t think about movies when they think about social impact but we see media as the spark that ignites change and conversation. Currently, we’re focused on telling impactful stories, from a movie exploring the taboo subject of mass shootings in America to our upcoming tv show “The Twelve” the story of the last disciple, Starring Kevin Sorbo. In the long term, we’d like to expand our efforts into education and be key players in equipping our communities with the power of filmmaking. A tool that we believe is at the forefront of winning minds and hearts.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The journey of getting to this point has not been an easy one but making films has been akin to breathing and has never been a choice. I think when we stop doubting ourselves and dive all in we’ve taken the first step in the journey. The best advice I can give people is to take action, take risks, knowledge is power, and celebrate small victories.

And I just want the world to know we’re here and soon we’ll be filling up the airwaves with all our thought-provoking, conversation-starting, jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat goodies!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I haven’t been in Atlanta too long so here’s my list, the 1.0 version! In no specific order,

Ponce City Market, The Aquarium, Blue Ridge Mountains, Lenox Mall and just get some Lemon pepper wings

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to thank God first and foremost! A huge thank you to my supportive wife and mother Emily Machado.

I’d also like to thank a few disciples that have been key in making the dream of our upcoming show “The Twelve” a reality. Michael Droberg, Kevin Sorbo, Stephen Campanella, Lisa Arnold, Cary Solomon, Brad Martin, Mart Lindsey, and so many others!
