Nolan Lebovitz has been known for writing and directing the successful film "Tortured" which starred Laurence Fishburne, James Cromwell and Cole Hauser. Little did he know in that time that he would abandon the stable career he had in Hollywood and study to become a Rabbi plus make a film related to the Bible named Roadmap Genesis. Lebovitz message of truth through the film is that the country has lost its focus and lost its direction. First, he observed that there was a big amount of ignorance towards the Bible so one of the goals he had towards the documentary was just that, to improve and encourage people to read the Bible. To him the book of Genesis formed an important part of America's base.
One of the difficulties that Nolan has had to work on is marketing. He didn't have a big studio behind the film to help promote the documentary Roadmap Genesis DVD so they are really relying on the people that come see the film and encourage others to watch it as well. It has been a difficult task since the film doesn't have the epic Hollywood look since it's a documentary and it doesn't have a studio supporting the film and promoting it, therefore, those are the biggest battles the film has had to face.
Choosing which parts from the book of Genesis Lebovitz had to choose was a hard task. He tried to choose parts of the book that were most relevant to what was going on today. While making the film, Lebovitz noticed that there was a huge difference between the professionals he interviewed and the people he would interview in the street. He had to weave in some narratives from the book that people could relate to so that he could unite both outlooks. Some of the parts that he had to include since people were most familiar with them is the story of Abraham, Joseph and Cain and Abel. The director didn't want the Roadmap Genesis documentary to be completely foreign to the audience. He wanted the film to have a sense of relevancy and would appeal to what people are living in the present. In that case proving the main message of the film that Genesis should be looked as a map for people to know how to live their lives.
The limitations Lebovitz from Roadmap Genesis had to encounter made him be strategic and weigh everything. The film was made in two years so different events occurred during that time.
Nolan Lebovitz from Roadmap Genesis DVD chose to observe his journey and speak to people about how they can continue on and change their lives. Although for some changing their lives may be harder than it looks. To him it's important for people to raise their kids to become better. To encourage parents to involve their kids in reading the Bible but specifically the book of Genesis. To bring them to a narrative from it that they can relate to and that will instill values and morals that they will all share. Its said in the Roadmap Genesis movie that many of the things that connect one community to another is stationed on the Good Book. Also the responsibility of all is stationed on the Bible. But then society becomes fragmented in different pieces where the people have different fears and put up walls to "protect" themselves although what it does is cause a major problem.
