The ‘Star Search’ campaign continues when RisingStar31 launches its new web-show called The Witness, which will feature interviews with inspirational writers and people who’ve witnessed powerful miracles.

Pamela Sherrod, founder of the Christian-based company, says she hopes to identify the types of books and testimonies that would be ideal for adaptation to film. The Witness gives her an opportunity to collaborate with others writers and artists, and develop dynamic films and documentaries that can impact peoples’ lives. As she says, there’s a simple mission: “To showcase the stories that the whole world’s waiting to be inspired by… Yours!”

RisingStar31 offers publishing and video production services which include book trailers, commercials, documentaries, web videos and other promotional products. To see samples of their books and projects, visit, or email them for more information at
