The People Behind MagicHouse Productions
Eric Bumpus' two main academic interests were realized in 1998 while taking a Video Yearbook course and a Theological survey course at Lenawee Christian High School in Adrian, Michigan. Bumpus was one of forty students nationwide to earn a certificate of completion from the Los Angeles Film Studies Center in the Spring of 2003. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from Indiana Wesleyan University of that same year.
Bumpus' primary experience has been as a freelance video editor for various production companies including MagicHouse Productions, New Hollywood Studios, Marion's Community School of the Arts (CSA) and others. His production company, Meliora Productions, can be found by visiting: www.MelioraProductions.com To view some of Meliora's work, check out their YouTube profile at: www.YouTube.com/MelioraProductions
Bumpus is also the co-author of "Cease Fire, the War is Over! Strategies for Biblical Integration in Film"; a book detailing a Theology of culture and ideas for Christians and Filmmakers to adopt in their interaction with culture. Published in November 2005 by Xulon Press, "Cease Fire, the War is Over!" is already being used in a college course at Indiana Wesleyan University. Copies can be found through any major online book retailer (including Amazon). A website for the book is in pre-planning stages.
