Jordan and Ashley have both worked on a movie set and enjoyed it immensely. Ashley feels this is an area the Lord would like her to continue to be involved in and hopes to make a movie based on her book Hearts Journey Home someday. Though she loves almost all aspects of filmmaking, the area she likes best is working with the camera, either as assistant camera or camera operator. She would also like to hone her skills so she can work as a Director of Photography. She also enjoys editing. Shiloh also has an interest in moviemaking, especially in the areas of costume design and acting. If you are in need of anyone to help on a film contact Ashley. Below are listed film projects we have been a part of.

In addition to these films, Ashley has also helped with the filming of three weddings and also filmed and edited another one.

With riveting action, stunning visuals, and a powerful score, Pendragon's message of faith, courage, and vision is sure to inspire your family for generations to come."
