1952 - 1974In 1952, Good News Productions (GNP) purchased the property and buildings of the village of Yellow Springs and brought the movie industry to this rural community. The primary goal of GNP was to produce religious films in this creative and artistic atmosphere. The movie crew lived in the village's houses and old hotels that were converted to apartments. Two barns served as production studios and the "old hospital" housed the editing facility. Good News Productions produced over 400 films, as well as television and radio shows that focused on the Christian message. A staff of 50 worked together, including production managers, scriptwriters, sound recorders, photographers, animators, cameramen, lighting technicians and the actors. Assistant directors, prop men, makeup men and press representatives worked with director/producer Irvin Shortess Yeaworth, Jr. also known as "Shorty."
