A company that produces Christian audio adventure dramas to bring "history to life" has been recognized as one of the best in the industry.
Going up against the likes of NPR and Garrison Keillor, Heirloom Audio Productions recently garnered three "Voice Arts Awards," the audio industry's equivalent to the Academy Awards. Bill Heid, founder of Heirloom Audio, says they have released seven dramas detailing stories of Christian heroes from history.
"We're not shy about who we are," says Heid, "[but] we don't put cheesy Christianity in. We're not trying to put things in where they don't belong. But if one of our heroes has these morals – this plumb line, this faith, this obedience and love for God in their character, and they act that out in their decisions and in the real world – we tell that story."
Heid tells OneNewsNow his team is highly honored to be recognized by Hollywood for their excellence.
"A lot of times, Christians think that no one will pay any attention to us because we're Christians and they're Hollywood and all of this and that. And I know that's true [in some cases]," he acknowledges. "However, sometimes I think we've done sloppy work and we're not really entitled to the recognition."
He says Heirloom Audio's goal is to give wholesome, Christ-centered entertainment that engages, educates, and inspires.
