TwoCan Films, LLC is in late pre-production stage of a low-budget full length narrative feature film titled “’Stronomer.” This Christian based family-friendly film will be a hybrid, that is, shot with a mixture of 35mm film and HD. Principle photography will commence end of Q1, 2011.

The original, unreleased script for ‘Stronomer featured a poem, “And God Said No” written and with copyright belonging to Claudia Minden Weisz. We have not been able to secure release rights for this poem and will need to replace the poem with one of similar structure and message prior to the shoot.

We would be interested to commission an original piece for the film with unlimited rights released to TwoCan Films, but the author will receive film credit and a fixed fee of $300.

If interested, you may email us at for further information

Thank you and God Bless!

God Always Says Yes
As a firm believer that God does not ever tell us "No," I think expressing the opinion that he does tell us No does more harm than good. Proof? I could write an entire book on the proof of this, beginning with Jesus telling us that "What-so-ever we ask in the name of Jeses, God the Father will do..." He will never say No.

Poetry like this, in my opinion is more about our own weaknesses and "excuses excuses excuses" than it is about reality of God and His words, His promises to us, that too few of us ever truly believe. No, after all, is a negative word in itself, I am very sure that God does NOT like the word No. It is our own design and connotation. It is the ultimate excuse for our weaknesses. Maybe the poet thought the response was No, but it was in her mind only. Maybe God is telling the filmmaker, yes, find a Yes poem.

I disagree...
...with the above statement.

sometimes God *does* say no; the idea that he doesn't is frankly laughable, not to mention unbiblical.

otherwise, no plane would ever crash, nobody would ever die of cancer, everyone who ever bought a lottery ticket would be a millionnaire and every political party would win every election.

having read the poem being discussed its message seems to be exactly that: that we can pray for guidance and ask God to help us, but that this doesn't mean getting our own way all the time - sometimes bad things will happen regardless of prayer.

still looking?
Just came across this and won't bother with a stab at it if the request has already been filled.
