Frozen Stupid2:Open Water - now available on DVD or streaming
Frozen Stupid2:Open Water is a feature-length motion picture based on an original screenplay written by Rich Brauer. It is a sequel to the original film also written and directed by Rich Brauer.
Most of the original professional cast and crew returned. These included 9 SAG performers coming in from as far away as Los Angeles. Professional champion walleye fisherman Mark Martin appears as… Mark Martin!
Brauer’s feature films offer intern positions on the crew for emerging film students interested in pursuing filmmaking as a career. This gives a rare opportunity for the next generation of technicians and artists to work on a real film, with real actors. Since the Michigan Film Incentive no longer exists, these young and enthusiastic individuals appreciate this as a special and unique chance to pursue their personal artistic growth.
Many organizations and individuals in Michigan were excited about the return of our crew and the creation of this film. Among them; Roscommon EDC, the Roscommon Tourism Bureau, and the Houghton Lake Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, local tackle shop Lyman’s on the Lake (who sold almost 2,000 DVD’s of the first film) and many other businesses participated in the fun.
Frozen Stupid2:Open Water will be Brauer’s 9th feature film produced in Michigan.
Filming took place during September 2019 in Roscommon County. Post-production is underway. The finished film is expected to be premiered sometime in the summer of 2020. Stay tuned!
Josh McDowell grew up in a dysfunctional family with a violent, alcoholic father and a sexually abusive caregiver. These experiences left McDowell with a lifetime of scars that drove him away from God. Eager to deny the existence of a savior, McDowell sought out conflict with the Christians he encountered in college. He mocked their beliefs and scorned their faith until they issued him a challenge: prove God doesn't exist. Obsessively, McDowell travelled the world in search of evidence contradicting Christianity. What he found instead was faith a faith that led to grace and redeemed a broken man. Undaunted is a true-life docudrama depicting how Josh McDowell set out to prove Jesus Christ never existed but ended up an apostle.
His work with the Campus Crusade for Christ has allowed him to spread the gospel to over ten million young people, and he's published over 70 books in the field of Christian Apologetics, including More Than a Carpenter and Evidence That Demands a Verdict. He is a true fisher of men.
