Area Non-profits Gain from Local Author/Moviemaker’s Global Impact: Filming starts Sunday at Langhorne Coffee House
Mass-audience engagement expert Ken McArthur is on a mission to assist local non-profit organizations in building awareness for their good work while meeting – and exceeding – their 2015 fundraising goals. To successfully achieve this objective, McArthur and his team of cinematic experts, will begin filming on The Impact Factor Movie with a simple message, “You make a difference whether you want to or not.”
According to the National Philanthropic Trust, $241.32 billion was given by individual donors in 2013, a number representing 72% of the total of charitable contributions.
One of the non-profits to benefit from Mr. McArthur’s film endeavor is local resident Sean McCollough’s Young Eagle Entrepreneurs Program. This live, hands-on apprenticeship program prepares deserving young men and women around the world to be productive and respected members of society through business ownership and mastery. Other non-profit organizations interested in becoming recipients of this effort are encouraged to contact Mr. McArthur.
McArthur’s impact message has carried his success through decades as a change-maker, personal mentor, and best-selling author. “We impact thousands just by existing,” McArthur advised, “and we each carry within us the ability to have immeasurable impact on the people around us. This movie will capture my direct ethos: why not make your influence a positive and powerful one?”
Phase One of the production will begin as a short film to showcase McArthur’s world renowned Impact Manifesto. A full-length feature film will follow titled, The Impact Factor Movie. Cinematographer and Morristown native, Ryan Larason commences filming on April 26 at the award-winning Langhorne Coffee House. The actors and production crew include members of The Philadelphia Filmmakers’ Meetup group.
Owned by local entrepreneur, Tracy Dornisch-Cramer, and home of the Monthly Artist Series, the coffee house is located at 102 S. Bellevue Avenue in Langhorne, PA.
