DNP STUDIOS (David Nixon)
DNP Studios is excited to partner with you on the feature film The Fire Inside. We believe this concept
has tremendous potential in the Faith-Based market and many distributors will be very interested in
marketing the film. We have built quite a track record in this genre with Facing the Giants and Fireproof,
and we believe The Fire Inside has the potential to do just as well, if not better than these films.
DAVID STILL (Maj, NJANG”, The Tom Still Story)
Life has many challenges. Most of them come when you least expect them. Travis and I met right after we both had experienced a similar challenge at a similar stage of life. It was huge having a friend and brother to talk to about what he had learned and taken away from his battle with cancer. I think this book does a good job of documenting the trials Travis has gone through and what he’s learned from it all. I know it helped me seeing his attitude of how to make it through life’s storms and how to digest those trials and learn from them. It helped me back when we first met and helps me today whenever things in life get tough.
CATHY CARLAT (Mayor, Peoria AZ)
You can’t help but be captivated by the story of Travis Angry. He doesn’t hold back as he confesses to the base emotions that have the powerful potential to destroy any one of us. As he rises to overcome his own demons, we learn how far the strength of faith and family can take us. This is a glimpse into the attitudes that fail and those that triumph as we share the walk of Travis Angry and his personal quest to be a better man.
JORDIN SPARKS (Singer/Actress)
Travis’ story will make you want to scream and shout. His perseverance and strength are truly inspiring! He is making a positive impact within his family and community. He is truly making a difference one page at a time.
LARRY ROTHER (Principal, Chandler High School)
When we scheduled Travis to speak with our students, we were confident that he would engage us with a story of perseverance and grit. However, what we weren’t expecting was that the power of his story was truly centered on the message of HOPE. This idea of hope is what our students and faculty connected to and what made Travis’ message so powerful. For weeks after Travis’ presentation our students were talking about his visit and reaching out to him directly via social media, which shows just how much his message resonated with our kids.
ERNIE JOHNSON, JR. (Sportscaster, TNT/TBS)
Travis Angry has written an at times brutally honest story. And through it all, even the darkest of times, there is hope and promise of change. You'll be inspired.
