ABOUT

EYELAND IMAGES IS A FEATURE FILM AND MEDIA PRODUCTION COMPANY OUT OF IMLAY CITY, MI IN ASSOCIATION WITH GATEWAY ASSEMBLY. WE CREATE WITH THE HOPE OF SOMEHOW SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST IN A UNIQUE WAY.

WE'RE ROOTED AND BASED OUT OF OUR LOCAL CHURCH, GATEWAY ASSEMBLY, IN IMLAY CITY, MI. A SMALL TOWN IN MICHIGAN ISN'T WHAT WE HAD IN MIND WHEN WE FELT FROM GOD THE BURDEN TO PRODUCE FEATURE FILMS, BUT HE HAS BEEN FAITHFUL IN EVERY STEP OF THE JOURNEY AND HAS SHOWN US THE REALITY OF HIS GRACE, NO MATTER WHERE WE FIND OURSELVES.

WE LOVE TO BRING STORIES TO LIFE WITH THE HELP OF WHAT WE BELIEVE TO BE GOD'S MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE: THE LOCAL CHURCH. OUR FIRST FOUR MAJOR PROJECTS HAVE BEEN DONE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY WITH AN ALL-VOLUNTEER CAST AND CREW AND IT HAS HUMBLED US EVERY TIME TO SEE THE POWER OF HIS WILLING PEOPLE WHEN THEY COME AROUND A SINGULAR TASK.

YOU MAY NOTICE A PATTERN THAT EACH PROJECT WAS A SERMON SERIES TO OUR CHURCH BEFORE IT WAS EVERY RELEASED TO THE WORLD. WE BELIEVE THAT OUR PURPOSE IS TO FIRST UPLIFT OUR LOCAL CHURCH AND THEN TO USE THIS CONTENT TO AFFECT THE CULTURE AROUND US, SPANNING THE ENTIRE GLOBE. IN THE WORDS OF DEFIANT, "IT'S FOR YOU FIRST, THEN THE REST OF THE WORLD."

OUR FIRST FILM, REAL, WAS RELEASED IN 2011 THROUGH PURE FLIX ENTERTAINMENT AND PROPELLED US ON A JOURNEY WE DIDN'T ENTIRELY EXPECT. REAL IS A SERIES OF FOUR VIGNETTES AND TELLS TRUE STORIES OF PEOPLE LOST AND BROKEN BEFORE CHRIST INTERVENED. THESE STORIES ARE ALL THE REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES OF FOUR DIFFERENT PEOPLE IN OUR CHURCH. THIS FILM BEGAN AS A SERIES FOR OUR LOCAL CHURCH AND BECAME SOMETHING ALL IT'S OWN.

OUR SECOND FILM, TUCKER THERAPY COMES OUT IN 2018. WE BEGAN THE PRE-PRODUCTION PROCESS ON THIS FILM IN JANUARY OF 2012, JUST A FEW WEEKS AFTER REAL HAD BEEN RELEASED WORLDWIDE. TUCKER THERAPY TOOK US NEARLY THREE YEARS TO FINISH AND WAS ONE OF OUR MOST DIFFICULT PROJECTS TO DATE. IT FOLLOWS AN INCREDIBLY DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY, A CAST MADE UP ENTIRELY OF PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED OUR CHURCH. IT WAS A MARRIAGE AND FAMILY SERIES FOR OUR LOCAL CHURCH.

DUALITY, A DOCUMENTARY SERIES, FOLLOWS FIVE INDIVIDUALS AND COUPLES, CHRONICLING THE PAIN OF THEIR PAST AND, ULTIMATELY, GOD'S PATH TO A PROMISE. IT FEATURES ALL REAL PEOPLE FROM OUR CHURCH AND THE INCREDIBLE STORIES OF HOW GOD WALKED THEM THROUGH ADVERSITY THAT WOULD HAVE CRIPPLED MANY OTHERS IN THEIR SAME SITUATIONS. HIS REDEMPTION AND GRACE ARE ON DISPLAY IN EVERY EPISODE. THIS WAS CREATED TO BE A SERIES FOR OUR LOCAL CHURCH.

DEFIANT IS OUR THIRD COMPLETED FEATURE FILM AND IS SET TO BE RELEASED IN 2018. PRE-PRODUCTION BEGAN ON DEFIANT FOUR MONTHS AFTER TUCKER THERAPY FINISHED THE MAJORITY OF IT'S POST-PRODUCTION. THE ENTIRE PRODUCTION AND POST-PRODUCTION PROCESS FOR DEFIANT SPANNED LESS THAN SIX MONTHS. THIS WAS INITIALLY CREATED AS A SERIES FOR OUR LOCAL CHURCH ON WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THE END TIMES.
