Ken Curtis, Ph.D receives 2007 Freddie Award Winner for Oncology

Gateway Films/Vision Video (Worcester, Pennsylvania) was named the 2007 Freddie Award Winner for Oncology for its DVD, Reflections on Psalm 23 for People with Cancer. The DVD was honored at the 2007 International Health & Medical Media Awards, the premiere festival for medical communications in the video field. In addition to winning the Freddie Award, “Reflections on Psalm 23 for People with Cancer” was also recently honored at the 2007 International Christian Visual Media Crown Awards Gold Crown Award for the years Best Series and the Silver Crown Award for Best Documentary.

“Reflections on Psalm 23 for People with Cancer” came about after Vision Video company president, Dr. Ken Curtis, PhD., was diagnosed five years ago with advanced cancer with only a small prospect of survival. Curtis began a combination of traditional and alternative medicine, surrounded himself with a supportive prayer team, made stringent dietary changes, and drew upon the inspiration of the 23rd Psalm. Curtis says,

This Psalm has meant so much to me during my ordeal and brought consolation when most needed, and helped me enormously when difficult decisions had to be made.

Vision reports the DVD has also had a wide and enthusiastic reception by viewers in many countries. Television transmission rights have been extended internationally to England, Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Poland and the Arabic speaking world.

Follow-up film now in production: “Reflections on the Lords Prayer”

In response to the widespread reception of the “Reflections on Psalm 23,” Curtis and his production team recently returned to Israel where he completed filming a follow up DVD in High Definition video titled “Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer.” Just as in “Reflections on Psalm 23,” Curtis felt it important to shoot in historic Biblical locations visiting areas like the Jordan River, Mt. Tabor, Caesarea Philippi, Jericho, Nazareth, the Negev Desert and the Garden of Gethsemane. Filming culminated at the Peter Noster Church in Jerusalem where the courtyard walls uniquely contain tiles of the Lord’s Prayer in 162 languages.

The subtitle for the Lord’s Prayer series is “You Don’t Have to Feel Alone Anymore,” which Curtis explained shows how the prayer provides a security and assurance for people going through a major health crisis such as cancer.

“Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer” is now in post-production and scheduled for a 2008 release.
