As most of you know, Paul had the wonderful opportunity to work for the Texas Homeschool Coalition in Abilene – we’re excited for you Paul! – so he called us to see if we, the Thorn Crown Project, would be willing to take on Filmmakers Academy. The vision for Filmmakers Academy is very close to the mission of the Thorn Crown Project so we gladly agreed to lead FA in the future.
