Finally get to share a fun announcement with everyone: Travis: A Soldier’s Story will be shown at a special private viewing for Congress on Capitol Hill on November 18th. Travis and Kelsey, along with fellow quadruple-amputee Taylor Morris, producers Katie and Reece Norris and Jonathon will all be in attendance. (You can read more about Taylor’s story at http://www.taylormorris.org) This showing was organized by Rep. Bruce Braley of Iowa.
How can you help? Contact your representative and encourage them to attend this showing. With all the conflict and frustration in our country right now, it is easy to forget sometimes that despite these frustrations, we really are truly blessed to live in a country with such freedom; and Travis: A Soldier’s Story is a film meant to remind of us of the individual men, women and families who volunteer to help protect those freedoms. No matter what our party lines or political positions, our nation’s service members and their families truly deserve to be honored for the sacrifices they make for all of us.
You can find out who your representative is at this handy dandy link – http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ which gives you an instant link to their contact information.
Please continue to keep all of these young men and their families in your prayers.
Without their support and willingness to revisit and share their experiences, this film wouldn’t have been possible.
Thank you again to all of you who have supported us – whether through Kickstarter, attending premieres, or even just Facebook comments. This is all such a new experience for us, and it has been so great to see how Travis’s story has impacted others and this little film continues to grow.

Welcome to our new site! Not too shabby, eh?
Jonathon Link Studios, as well as Jon and I personally, have gone through so many changes this past year. We felt like we were long overdue for a website that reflected all we have going on. Below are just a few quick updates on each of our filmmaking fronts . . .
DOCUMENTARY – Travis: A Soldier’s Story is beginning to roll out into select theaters across the country. Just last night it play in Fayetteville, NC and many of Travis and Kelsey’s Fort Bragg family were in attendance. The response has been great and it is amazing to hear how Travis’s story has impacted other individuals facing adversity in their own lives.
PROFESSIONAL – Last month we traveled to OKC to film with Tony Steward, a guy who went from working alongside the likes of pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church to pursuing his dream of community outreach and ministry by opening his own bike shop – Charley’s Bicycle Laboratory. Nicest guy ever and such a cool story. His wife, Mandy, also just released her first book and I happened to snag an advance copy, thanks to Tony. Highlighter city – no joke! Definitely recommend checking it out! Thrashing About With God by Mandy Steward
WEDDING – It has been nice to get back into the wedding swing again. So many beautiful days to share. Just last weekend we filmed a super-fun wedding in Dallas for which the groom wrote – and performed – his own wedding day rap . . . which I’ve had stuck in my head all week. ” . . . It’s our wedding day! It’s our wedding day! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! . . ”
NON-PROFIT – We just finished up a great promo piece for Living Church for their new building campaign. Got to try out some new equipment and it really turned out awesome – such a great group. They just launched their campaign last Sunday and we can’t wait to share soon!
Also a big shout-out to our good photo friend Meshali Mitchell, whose photography for a little (but really not little at all) thing called #thesurprisewedding was featured on People.com yesterday. The story behind this wedding is so amazing – you MUST watch the documentary film that goes along with their wedding weekend. Proof that the wait for Mr. Right – no matter how long and frustrating – is well worth it!
Thanks for stoping by! Can’t wait to see what the next year holds for us at Jonathon Link Studios!
