One of the best-known Christian psychologists on family dynamics, Dr. James Dobson, is just completing a new instructional video series with the help of BizVid Communications. As a leading San Diego Video Production Company, Dobson’s producer David Nixon, of DNP Studios in Orlando, selected BizVid to direct and crew this significant production. According to Nixon, the original series, tied to Focus on the Family, was released in 1978 and was viewed by 80 million people. Now out of print, Dr. Dobson’s son found the original series in storage and realized their value.
It was decided to update the materials. They sought out Christian filmmaker David Nixon to oversee the task. “We’re completing a total of eight films,” said Nixon. “We’ve refurbished three of the old ones and are doing five new ones.” Nixon continued, “Dr. Dobson referred to his son often in the earlier versions. Now he has grandchildren to include in his stories.” The series offers vital information for parents or anyone interested in the family.
Entitled “BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY” the new series features Dr. James Dobson, with appearances by his wife, Shirley; daughter, Danae; and son, Ryan. Dr. Dobson is the groundbreaking author of such books as Dare to Discipline and The Strong-Willed Child. An inductee into the Radio Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame, Dr. Dobson is founder of Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk. He hosts the non-profit signature broadcast, Family Talk.
The site for the production of these videos is Skyline Church in San Diego County. The venue, pastored by Dr. Jim Garlow, offers enough seating to facilitate a couple thousand people with cameras already in place. The first two of the five taping days yielded audiences totaling some 3,000. “James Dobson is kind of like that grandfather you wish you had,” said Nixon. BizVid Communications is pleased to team up on such a remarkable project.
