A Movie about Faith, Oregon and Eugene!

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

Want to see a movie shot in Oregon and primarily in Eugene? It is a movie created by local artist Jerry Thompson, who has written many articles for FishDuck.com, and I’ve lost count how many articles I have contributed to his local magazine Ducks Illustrated. And you get to see Oregon Basketball Coach Kelly Graves in it, and a tremendous performance by retired college coach Ken Woody, who has written a ton of analyses for FishDuck.com and will be doing so again each week during the season!

Translated is a story that is fun, inspirational and will get you thinking as a Christian. And the scenery will make you smile…often! Silver Creek Falls, amazing views in Eastern Oregon, and so many recognizable areas around Eugene. So cool to see, as, unlike Animal House, this is meant to be shot in Eugene; they refer to Eugene, Oregon in the movie and not a fictional place. And the wonderful song we hear at the end of every first quarter in Autzen Stadium by country singer Matt Kearney, “Coming Home,” is stirring in the first part of the movie. Whew!

Jerry Thompson should be very proud…

Translated is only running another six days in Eugene at the Valley River 15 Movie Cinema, and I wish every local Christian of every denomination would watch it, as the message is for us all. The Apostle Paul has been transported in time, or “translated,” and his visit to present day Eugene is quite interesting — and again, a fun movie for an Oregonian.

The majority of the cast are Oregonians, and Jerry told me that unlike on most movie sets “there was not a single big ego among the actors.” Wow. Later he was told by the major actors that every day on the set was “magical” for them too. I believe it!

I am so happy for Jerry, as this is quite a lifetime achievement, and I’m delighted for Christians in Oregon and especially in Eugene. The movie will be out on DVD in the future, and I would encourage you to buy it and support Jerry and the faith message.

I am still smiling, (thinking about the movie) and I wish my friend Jerry Thompson much further success.

FishDuck Going to Articles on Monday and Tuesday Only…

Our off-season schedule begins, and we move from publishing articles seven days a week to Mondays and Tuesdays only. Same great group of writers, and we will have an article on other days on occasion.

The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there.  At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.

Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!

OBD Forum members….we got your back.  No Trolls Allowed!
