BURLINGTON, N.C. — It's been a labor of love for Elon grad Cornelius Muller.
"We started this film literally on the week the pandemic broke out," said Muller. "So it's been a long 3-and-a-half-year project but we are so excited to let people experience our story."
“Making Him Famous,” tells the story of Mario King, a young man who exemplifies his faith as he embarks on a journey of self-discovery and fame.
King’s goal in life is to unveil the power of God, the only true hero who can transform lives and change the world in a culture where people are mesmerized by celebrities, brands, superheroes, and villains.
"As King’s pride continues to escalate, it begins to take a heavy toll. At the cusp of fame, his life begins to crash down around him. After an awakening shows him the error of his ways, he then decides to live a life of service and help others in need." continued Muller, "He relocates to a small town where his work at a local homeless shelter offers him an opportunity for redemption. After the dust has settled, His name will still be known, but just who will “He” be when God has other plans?"
Muller actually wrote, produced, and starred in the film.
