Thank you for taking the journey with us!

Ministry of Cinema is a small, independent studio based in Austin, TX. By small, we mean really small —like only a few guys working at home. And by independent, we mean we are broke. Our mission is to spread our love of cinema however we can.

Since we're only a few broke independents, we're currently putting out new videos about every two weeks typically on Mondays. Show us what you got by joining our community newsletter, subscribing on YouTube, and following us on social media for more. This is the best way for us to know you dig us.

Your pals,

Bradley and Kyle
