OKMULGEE, Oklahoma – Muscogee (Creek) citizen Robert (Bob) Harmon visited with Mvskoke Radio on March 9 to talk about the release of his children’s book turned feature film, “A Moses Prayer for Easter.”
The story is about two girls who pray to change the heart of their father to get him to go to church on Easter Sunday, but adds a humorous twist when the ten plagues are cast on their father.
The story highlights the 1956 classic film, “The Ten Commandments.”
Actor and former Superman/Clark Kent, Dean Cain plays the villain role in Harmon’s film, the boss of the father who tries to stray him away from church on Sunday.
The week prior to the radio, Harmon had been in Texas at a faith-based film festival promoting his film where he said he got positive feedback.
“There was a lot of clapping and applause,” Harmon said. “That made me feel good, but I’m really just testing the waters on this.”
Harmon’s background has nothing to do with film making or even writing, this was something he would do in his spare time, something he claimed made him feel sane or sort of like therapy.
Harmon jokingly said in “real life” he is a petroleum geologist and runs the family oil business C.E. Harmon Oil, Inc. out of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
His love for entertainment is what draws the interest of writing screenplays and authoring.
Harmon’s current project is being filmed at the family business location and is what he called an “oil field reality” by JCFilms.
“They shot in our office and out in the field,” he said. “Our whole goal was to present a slice of life that doesn’t get much attention.”
This comes from a screenplay Harmon wrote that features a Muscogee (Creek) young man as the hero of the story.
“A Moses Prayer for Easter” can be found on Amazon for the book or Amazon Prime for the movie.
