The film Mercy Rule is one of the films produced by Kirk Cameron's own studio called CamFam Studios.

Kirk Cameron and the choice to make Mercy Rule
Kirk and his family are always on the lookout for great movies to watch in their movie nights but for them it was hard finding the right movie with inspiring storylines that would encourage their faith in God and strengthen them as a family. He decided in that moment to make Mercy Rule in their own backyard with a local little league baseball team. For him the movie is one where the family truly learns about sacrifice, patience mercy and the trust we should have in God. He wanted to include some sort of sport to the film and decided to add baseball. To him the way the baseball game is played serves as a good metaphor for life. The importance of having a coach, that leader that guides the team. Also that when a wrong play is played, to keep moving on and continue the game.
Since he gave his life to the Lord, Cameron did not want to attach himself to big movie Hollywood standards. Therefore he chooses to create movies like Mercy Rule DVD that display and express his own beliefs and faith. He wants to create movies that have topics that resound in people's lives and hearts. Those that make an impact. Make films that he believes in and can give his all to. Films that are always going to present people something worthwhile and good.

He asked how did they want to see the movie for example in a theater then DVD distribution, digital download, or straight to DVD and digital download. The majority of the people answered that the wanted the film to go direct to DVD and direct download to be able to enjoy it right away.
Cameron wants to bring movies like Mercy Rule to families that look for those values that society needs so much of today. To bring people to Jesus and help them develop in their walk with Christ and understand the Gospel to a much deeper level.
Kirk Cameron's first encounter with fame was on the television sitcom "Growing Pains" but he wasn't really pursuing that dream Hollywood career. Now he sees he has a major responsibility to utilize his fame in a correct manner and he has hope that other Christian actors do the same. To him when he is given this important platform there comes a major responsibility. With that platform he is very conscious that they have to be mindful of what they say and which way they say it. To be graceful and even though it is hard task it's something to always work on.
