I go to prepare a place for you…that where I am, you may be also.

In the wake of the 2004 billion-dollar, box-office, phenomenon The Passion of the Christ, God has been inspiring Christian talent to discover and take their place in faith-based Hollywood as an evangelistic vehicle—to spread and demonstrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the secular community.

As the second generation descendant of Japanese cinema idol Keihachiro Toudou, Kathryn De Fries carries the “cinematic torch” to new generations…igniting a global transformation in the Arts & Entertainment industry. She desires to amalgamate her diverse experience and background to transform the Body of Christ from the conventional “4 walls church,” into a missional influence in every aspect of society.

Our assignment is to develop and advance Christian talent into opportunities of influence by offering the key components of “relationships.” Life comes down to love, trust, integrity, character, communication, passion, and who you know. We cultivate these qualities in our partners to help them launch…and land on their feet…in their calling to faith-based, New Holywood.

As God’s A-List alumni, your opportunities can multiply. Once training is complete, graduates are added to our base for upcoming television and film projects—in front and behind the camera. We offer a “fast pass” so you have a quality portfolio, and are strategically placed in key roles to advance His Kingdom in the Hollywood system.

As the granddaughter of Japanese cinema idol Keihachiro Toudou, Kathryn carries the “cinematic torch” to new generations…igniting a global transformation in the Arts & Entertainment industry. She desires to amalgamate her diverse experience and background to transform the Body of Christ from the conventional “4 walls church,” into a missional influence in every aspect of society.

Currently, Kathryn is offering practical tools from the entertainment industry to aspiring talent in the faith-based, “New Holywood” on the rise. She develops God-given abilities to transition “the gifted” into their destinies.

Kathryn’s dream is twofold. First, establishing a non-profit organization in Hollywood. Second, mobilizing the next generations with the Portacle™ philosophy and mandate of Kingdom dynamics. This entails passion, integrity and trust—for societal infusion and transformation. Essentially, “Kingdom Economics,” doing business God’s way.

Portacle provides a unique integrated approach, which incorporates Executive Coaching and Process Consulting, that’s measurable. Hence, the tagline, “Measured Success.”

This is necessary for the ongoing success of aspiring filmmakers, production teams, directors, producers, actors, and writers.


God’s A-List is partnered with AMTC to help you advance to their “front line” of talent scouts and agencies

AMTC realizes that no life goes untouched by media. Film, fashion, music and theater influence us like never before. Their “stars” have become the standard-bearers for our children. An average teen spends 75 hours a week in media which escalates to over 60,000 hours by the age of 17.

At AMTC, we believe God has allowed such a time as this. Earth’s stage is set. Jesus the King is coming! Actors, models and talent for Christ are called to prepare the way for the return of the Lord. To clear up misunderstandings about who Jesus really is…and His unconditional love for us.
