“Extremely well made, funny, heartwarming…” –Movieguide
About the Director
Dallas Jenkins produced the $2 million independent Hometown Legend at the age of 25, ultimately guiding it to Warner Brothers for distribution. Dallas made his directing debut with the short film Cliché, which called “Fast and funny…ingenious,” and his next short film, Midnight Clear, starring Stephen Baldwin, won a Crystal Heart Award from the Heartland Film Festival and was the opening night selection of the San Diego Film Festival.
In 2006, he was the Co-Executive Producer of Though None Go With Me, a movie based on his father’s book that aired on The Hallmark Channel. His feature directing debut, also called Midnight Clear, was based on his short film and was featured in over a dozen film festivals, including winning the Cinequest Film Festival award for “Best First Feature” and the “Audience Choice” award at the Kansas International Film Festival.

In 2009, Dallas directed his 2nd feature film, entitled What If… starring Kevin Sorbo, Kristy Swanson, John Ratzenberger, and Debby Ryan. The film hit theaters in Fall 2010. He recently accepted a position as Director of Visual Media at Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago, where he’ll produce and direct multiple films starting in 2011.

Product Description
Fifteen years ago, Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo) made a decision to leave his college sweetheart Wendy (Kristy Swanson), and ultimately his faith, in order to pursue a lucrative business opportunity. Now on the verge of marriage to an equally materialistic fiance, he is visited by an angelic mechanic (John Ratzenberger) who tells him that he needs to see what his life would have been like had he followed Gods calling. Suddenly, Ben finds himself married to Wendy with two daughters, including a rebellious teen (Debby Ryan), getting ready for church on a Sunday morning, where he’s scheduled to give his first sermon as the new pastor. If Ben wants to get back to his old life, he must first learn to appreciate the value of faith and family, and perhaps rediscover the love of his life. In the tradition of It’s a Wonderful Life and The Family Man, What If tells the story of a man whose glimpse into what he’s missing reminds him of what he truly wants.
What If received the “Dove Foundation’s Family Seal of Approval” with 5 out of 5 Doves and was also awarded the Parent’s Television Councils PTC seal of Approvalâ„¢.

From Jerry Jenkins, the author of Left Behind. Named by Movieguide as one of the “Top Ten Family Movies of 2010.”

Special Features: Behind the Scenes, Director’s Commentary, Closed Captioning, Dolby Digital.
