Motion Pictures

A Boutique Film Production Company

ElevatingEntertainmentLogoElevating Entertainment Motion Pictures is an award winning, boutique film production company focused on producing family-friendly, uplifting, and life-inspiring entertainment that was formed by Dave Moody and his son Josh Moody in 2007.

In 2017, the Moodys launched a new brand Downbeat Films which will focus on a broader spectrum of stories and genres.

Lamon’s staff is always looking for opportunities to integrate and develop stories around our music artists and song catalog to offer additional collateralizing of the artist’s talent in film, television, games and other visual media.

We’ve worked with some of Hollywood’s finest actors.  John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard, Smallville, October Baby), Grayson Russell (Talladega Nights, Diary of a Wimpy Kid) and Nancy Stafford (Matlock, Baywatch) all star in Elevating Entertainments’ SEASON OF MIRACLES which was released in 2013. In 2017, we cast Andy Buckley (The Office), John Schuck (MASH, The Munsters Today, Star Trek), Sarah Butler, Ted Welch (The Help), Katie Garfield (Birth of a Nation), and Arron Munzo (The Walking Dead) in Downbeat Films’ first production ALL LIGHT WILL END, in association with Red Vessell Entertainment and Music City Films. Bill Cobbs (Night at the Museum, Hudsucker Proxy), Lee Meriwether (Catwoman, Barnaby Jones) and Disney’s Blake Michael (Lemonade Mouth) star in Elevating Entertainment’s 2010 feature film entitled NO LIMIT KIDS. Rob Schneider (Rob, Grown Ups, Bedtime Stories)Margaret O’Brien (Meet Me In St Louis) and others star in several animated features in the ELF SPARKLE series produced in association with Elevating Entertainment.
