Estrella Creciente
Estrella is a young migrant worker from Mexico who toils in the hot sun day after day helping to support her family. Since childhood she has clung to a dream with little hope of ever seeing it fulfilled. One day she runs into the famous actor Pablo Romero, and Estrella’s life is never the same again. The film is written and produced by Jeantte Sanchez and Gustavo Gonzales.

Ride the Dixie
The Dixie is a stern wheel paddlewheel boat located in North Webster, Indiana. After building an outstanding multiple award winning two and a half story stern wheel riverboat float in 2014 entertaining thousands of onlookers during parades all summer long, the Windsong Pictures crew took a memorable and historic ride on the Dixie and documented the journey. For the adventure Charis, Jessica, Kenady and Cayleah with ages ranging from 5 to 9 were at the helm delighting passengers on board the vessel.

Legend of the Huron Creature
The story focuses on an ancient Native American legend about a monstrous underwater creature that lurks in the deep abyss of Lake Huron between Mackinac Island, Bois Blanc Island and the mainland of northern Michigan. Investigators are determined to discover the truth about the legend. In unraveling this mystery, does the creature exist or not? Katarie, an Ojibwa Native American, proves to be very helpful along with her cousin Mya in investigating the mystery of the deep.

Genealogical: The Hidden Past
Producer Tyan Byrd, a distinguished member of the Allen County Genealogy Society of Indiana, along with writer Caleb Cook created this film. In the theatrical motion picture, characters discover that they are related to famous people like Alex Haley who authored Roots, Geronimo the noted Apache warrior, Amelia Earhart the aviation pioneer with Indiana ties along with Civil War Generals Stonewall Jackson and William Tecumseh Sherman. In time the genealogical buffs enter a contest and face off with the brilliant and very young Whiz Kids and meet their match.

Mystery of the Black Hills
The Black Hills in South Dakota are sacred to the Lakota people. General George Armstrong Custer was summoned to the Black Hills in South Dakota to claim the territory and protect the gold prospectors in the 1870’s. Was protecting the gold a cover up? Was there something even more valuable there? Treasure hunters are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery once and for all tracking down every conceivable clue seeking help from descendants of the Buffalo Soldiers and Lakota people in the Black Hills.
Michael Floyd, Executive Producer
