Albany --  The latest film being made by Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany had their 31st and final day of shooting Friday. The film crew made their final shots at the Albany Fire Department's downtown station.

With a million dollar budget, and more than 700 people involved in the production, this is by far the Albany church's biggest movie project. Sherwood production's had a huge surprise hit with "Facing the Giants". "Giants" was a box office smash across the nation, and now has been translated into 13 languages and shown in 57 countries.

Many people involved say they think "Fireproof" is a better movie than "Giants", but Church officials say they are not worried that this film may not be as big a hit.  Sherwood Pastor Dr. Michael Catt said "we don't decide how big it is. Or how successful it is. Whatever that means. We are just supposed to be faithful. To do what God told us to do, and we leave the results to him."

Now the Christian movie "Fireproof" goes into post production for the next six months.

 Sony Films is scheduled to release the film in theatres in August, and then on DVD in 2009.
