Dr. Bob Beltz
Director of Special Projects, Anschutz Corporation, M.A. '79, D.Min. '86.
Lately, Dr. Bob Beltz has been immersed in C.S. Lewis’ fictional world of Narnia. Bob worked on the production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, released in December 2005. (Bob is pictured at left on the set.) Beltz reports, “Some of what we’re doing is extremely emotional. Watching the best filmmakers in the industry creating Narnia and the power of what I see, I get choked up every time I look at that. For me, it’s a dream.” A pastor for 30 years, Bob now serves as the Director of Special Projects for the Anschutz Corporation, parent company of Crusader Entertainment, Walden Media and Epiphany Films; mainstream film companies that produce family friendly films, some rich in spiritual themes. Aside from producing, Beltz works as part of the development team, oversees the script writing, serves as a consultant, and is involved in promotions to the Christian community. Bob has also authored numerous non-fiction books. When not on the set, Bob can be found at home in Colorado, at work on his first novel, The Enlightened Diner, which will be published in fall 2005 by NavPress.
