A feature documentary of a popular religious concert has been approved for a state incentive.
At the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) board meeting in February, Sometime Productions LLC was approved for a Community Film Incentive Program cash rebate of up to $52,159 for its production of “Lamb of God: The Concert Film.”
GOED documents indicate that the musical dramatization of the last week of the life of Jesus Christ originally was written as a concert work and is performed by groups around the world every year at Easter. This film, shot at Utah Film Studio in Park City in early February, will be a documentary-like shoot of an intimate live performance of the work.
The production involved 50 cast members and 38 crew and was expected to spend $260,796 in the state.
The directors are Rob Gardner and Wesley Johnson. Producers are Jennifer Latchman-Atkins and Arthur Van Wagenen.
“We had world-class talent come together on an extremely short timeline and budget to make this happen and can’t imagine being able to pull it off without the vocal and musical talent in Utah and the help from the Utah Film Commission and Utah Film Studios,” Van Wagenen said in a prepared statement.
