Who We Are:

Redbird Project 323 consists of husband and wife, Dwain and Beth Lyons, and their son, Cruz.

What's the Name Mean?

The red bird (Northern Cardinal) is a monogamous bird that has one mate for life. The male red bird is territorial and will do everything necessary to defend its family and home. Red birds do not migrate; when the environment begins to become harsh, most birds leave for warmer surroundings, but the red bird does not. It is committed to its family and territory through thick and thin. After hearing Warren Barfield's song "Red bird", Beth and I realized that we were our sons' red birds. Before we adopted our sons, they had been given up on by three different families. We are their Redbird; we will never leave them for fairer weather and we will do all we can to protect them. 323 comes from Colossians 3:23 which says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord, not for men" (paraphrased).  In our personal lives we strive to please the Lord and not humanity. The same is true for Redbird Project 323. So, we (Beth, the boys, and me) combined red bird and Colossians 3:23 to make Redbird Project 323. We are dedicated to our cinematography production work and we strive to perform it to glorify the Lord!
