Carol Edwards-News Release : Sep 2, 2014 : Ripple Effect Communications

"It was amazing. We were shooting in a very remote area in North Africa and I was standing with a shepherd. He saw something on the ground and dug up a Roman coin with an emperor's face on it." -Director Tim Chey

"It was amazing," says the director Tim Chey. "We were shooting in a very remote area in North Africa and I was standing with a shepherd. He saw something on the ground and dug up a Roman coin with an emperor's face on it."

A similar coin sells for $4,700 on eBay. The shepherd then gave the director the coin as a gift.

What did Chey do with the coin? "I gave it back to the shepherd," he says. "Couldn't take it. I knew it might be very valuable."

"David and Goliath" was filmed on locations never before filmed in Hollywood which excited the director.

"It was virgin territory which made the shoot even more epic," says Chey. "We shot in fortresses and valleys that could easily pass for Judah or Masada—I think the audience will be wowed."

"David and Goliath" looks at one of the most powerful and beloved Bible stories of all time. The film will focus on the early life of David who fought against the Philistine giant, Goliath against all odds.

The epic film comes at a perfect time. Hollywood is embracing faith-based films as of late and the audiences are growing at a record pace according to reports.

"David and Goliath" is set for an early-2015 nation-wide theater release.

Chey also produced another epic film, "Freedom" starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., Sharon Leal, William Sadler that opens in theaters across Australia next month and in theaters in the US in January 2015. He also directed "Epic Journey" that took him to 29 countries and was submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records for most countries traveled for a feature film.
