Update on Amy Carmichael Torchlighters Documentary

Amy's Nurse

Amy's nurse prepares to speak on camera

The film crew for the Amy Carmichael documentary recently finished filiming in Ireland and England! We were thrilled to visit many locations from Amy’s life story and to interview the nurse who cared for Amy near the end of her life. Here we see a shot of the interview with Amy’s nurse, Nancy Robbins. Nancy’s firsthand account brings a wonderful dimension to this documentary. The footage from Ireland and England will combine with other material direct from India to create an informative and moving presentation that we trust will be worthy of Amy Carmichael’s inspiring work.

Amy Carmichael Animation is Complete

Preena attempts an Escape.
Torchlighters is pleased to announce that the animation for Amy Carmichael is now completed and undergoing some fine-tuning. The colorful Indian scenes and moving story of Preena and her life-changing encounter with Amy is sure to become a Torchlighter favorite. The episode features both UK and Indian voice over actors.

Work also continues on other aspects of the production, including the Leader and Student Guides and the Original Documentary. We are working towards a Fall release of this much-anticipated Torchlighter!

Torchlighters Amy Carmichael Production

We are pleased to report that the animation of The Amy Carmichael Story is progressing beautifully with animation coloring 95% competed. This episode features Indian voice over actors which adds to the authenticity of the program. Amy’s established orphanage, Dohnavur, has also been very supportive of the program and have acted as script consultants.
Filming of the documentary will begin in Ireland in April. Dohnavur has graciously provided us with a goldmine of photographs from the early days of Amy’s ministry, that are sure to enhance the documentary.
Meanwhile, we are working on the DVD cover and the study guide! Check back often for updates on this exciting episode of The Torchlighters.

Amy Carmichael Documentary

Amy Carmichael shows her love for children.

In conjunction with the production of the Torchlighters animated features, we create original documentaries which help us to cover the rest of the story that wouldn’t fit into a thirty minute program. These separate productions help you gain a better understanding of the hero’s life and times. The Amy Carmichael story will be no exception.

The Amy Carmichael documentary is currently in the research stage. The orphanage she founded in Dohnavur, India has been a great source of information. Plans are under way to interview a nurse who cared for Amy during her last days.

The documentary will give you an inside look at Amy’s story! Here we see a photo of Amy with some of the children she ministered to.
