Reflections on The Oath of Desormeau Premiere

This past weekend, approximately 400 people attended the Houston Premiere of The Oath of Desormeau at Houston's First Baptist Church. We are extremely grateful to those of you who attended. We'd also like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff of Houston's First Baptist Church for being such gracious hosts and making this event possible, and Vollmer PR for so generously getting the word out.

Here are some images from the Premiere:

Opening Words.

David Attebury (Julien Desormeau) and Erin Arnold (Claire Rousseau) made the drive down from their respective colleges to attend the Premiere.

A Question and Answer session was held after the screening of the film.

Also, making drives from college, were Loren Grush (Matilde Rousseau) and Samuel Crites (Luc Rousseau, holding mic).

During the Question and Answer session, Sam Crites told the audience that making The Oath of Desormeau was the most difficult and most rewarding thing he had ever done.

Loren Grush (Matilde Rousseau), talked about how faith in God can sustain you during the filmmaking process.

Leigh Patterson (Simone) shares her experience during the shooting of The Oath of Desormeau. The extreme heat and prehistoric insects were repeated topics of conversation.

Santry Rush (Jacques Renard) and Michael Heathcote (Doctor Domaison) said the friendships formed on the set were among the most significant rewards of making the film.
