Endorsements for "Heart's Desire"
“Ann Ault has been a friend for years. I applaud her efforts and tenacity to make the inspiring movie, “Heart’s Desire”. She credits me as an inspiration because she knows how many years it took to do my TV series, “Christy,” and, subsequently, my movie,
“Amazing Grace.” I believe she will be the catalyst to bring the book and enchanting love story, “Heart’s Desire,” to the silver screen and I wish her the best!”
KEN WALES: Actor/ Producer: “Christy”, “Amazing Grace” and the list goes on ... check him on IMDB
“This remarkable story is so bathed in the colors of true experience, so beautifully researched, and so inspired by extraordinary heart-work and excellent craft, that it must surely be ready now for its next incarnation as a great film.”
Stephanie Edwards, Emmy-award winning film critic/actor/author/ speaker.
“If I had
a magic wand, I would wave it over “Heart’s Desire” and ensure that
this film gets made. It’s an
important story that unites peoples and cultures. A timeless reminder that faith, hope and love are things
that transcend culture!”

"I highly recommend my dear friend, Ann Ault. Her infectious, bright spirit should be enough to carry her film, "Heart's Desire" through to completion. But, alas, she needs to fund the film, too. I am confident that she will find a way in HIS time!"

We are now living in a world that has replaced romance with casual relationships. People no longer look to what is important in a relationship but rather to what is quick and easy. “Heart’s Desire” is a movie that is so refreshing because it shows us an example of what it takes to develop a long-lasting relationship with someone we love. This movie needs to be made and to be made soon. Ann, I promise to do all I can to help you make this dream ... no, this assignment a reality.”

Ault’s “Heart’s Desire” is one of those rare passion projects that has been
carefully developed and has now evolved into a must-make film ... a story of
love, sacrifice, and grace that sends out a warm and healing embrace to a
troubled world. It is unique and
universal, cross-cultural and deeply human. I’m convinced there’s an enormous and enthusiastic audience
out there hungry for this special life-affirming tale.”

It is a time-tested story that will resonate with audiences around the world. A future must-see film of love, perseverance, patience, kindness and grace that emanates light and truth. A majestic rendition about the power of love and never giving up on a heart’s desire. A green-light GO for this film project ... a win-win for everyone!”

years ago I connected with Ann Ault and was intrigued by her passion for Patsy Oda’s
story, “Heart’s Desire”. After
reading the book and Ann’s screenplay I understood her eagerness to write the
adaptation and to see it produced on screen. This rich and wonderful account of faith, perseverance, and
courage simply must be made into a film!
It’s the kind of story that will brighten a world filled with darkened
messages of true love and calls us all to rely on an amazing providence.”

I live in Los Angeles, the City of Angels, or more literally, the City of Messengers. As part of the sight and sound generation, I work professionally in the television and motion picture industry creating and telling stories ... “messages”. Let me tell you of a Messenger, Patsy Oda, and her message, “Heart’s Desire”.
Patsy Oda’s memoir, “Heart’s Desire”, reminds me, in spirit, of the Old Testament Book of Ruth, which has long been a personal favorite of mine. It is nestled in the Old Testament between the inexorable tumult and upheaval of warfare in Joshua and the tribulations, triumphs and tragedies of I Samuel.
The Book of Ruth offers 4 chapters of pastoral simplicity, serenity and charm ... still waters and green pastures that refresh the soul. Amongst its many lessons is that the same God who works on a global, indeed a universal scale, also works on an intimate, deeply personal scale. Ruth is also an account of how God brought her to a new place, a new time, and a new beginning.
“Heart’s Desire” does not simply echo these themes, but with the authority of a genuine disciple of Christ, it adds Patsy’s own voice as a simple, honest and charming “amen”.
Here is a message that is aching to be told, this time as a film. Ann Ault has done an award-winning job transforming Patsy’s book into a shooting script. I am pleased to be associated with the project, as a Christian, as a Japanese American, and as a professional editor. You can help us get the message out with your prayers.
Richard Masamitsu is a graduate from LIFE Bible College which, after two stints as an Associate Pastor in California, somehow qualified him to work successfully as a film and television Editor and Assistant Editor in L.A., CA for the past 17 years. Some of his credits: “Comic View”, “Crossing Jordan”, and “CSI:NY”. He has been happily married to his wife, Michelle, for 30 years, but he will only admit to being in his “extremely late 20’s”. They have 5 children, 3 grandchildren and 1 dog!
“ ‘Heart’s Desire’ is one of those touching cross-cultural screenplays that should be put to film ... and sooner or later it will be a movie. Ann’s passion for the project is contagious, and winning second place in the Gideon Media Film Festival means it’s a worthy project for investor consideration.”
