We’re excited to say there is new activity in the distribution of our feature film, The Enemy God. Our distribution partner in Spain, INTMED Films, arranged for the film to be released by Canal+, a huge multi-channel network in that country. It’s now available to rent through their YOMVI streaming service (think, Netflix) and will later be released through their satellite and cable movie networks.
Here’s the Spanish-language trailer we put together to support the release.
One of the major projects we’ve been working on is a new site to help teach basic film production. This version is in English but the real intention is to make our training available in other languages and countries.
GlobalFilmTraining.org is a place where emerging filmmakers can learn about visual storytelling and technical aspects of filmmaking. It is not intended to be a comprehensive film school, but available and translatable for underserved communities of learners. You can check out the English pilot version if you follow the link above.
We have been working on a series of web spots designed to encourage spiritual conversations between Christians and Muslims. Here’s a spot we completed earlier this summer. Our first simple animated spot of this series; we like how it turned out.
This short video reflects the longings of many families who are displaced, without a place to call their homeland. What does it feel like to never be “home?” Does God see and understand the needs of the poor and dispossessed? Does he hear their prayers?
Of course, much thanks goes to our whole team of animators, editors, and sound designers.
“Phone dating” is a phenomenon in the Middle East. Young people are not allowed to interact in person so they often resort to seeking relationships via their mobile phones. Our partners at Maarifa.org asked us to create a short video spot that invites discussion about the risks of these ‘virtual’ relationships and what may make for healthy relationships. The video clip is embedded with an article on phone dating in the “Life” magazine section of the site. (Sorry it’s all in Arabic.)
Here’s a link to the English version.
Here’s a video our team recently completed that gives a brief overview of the media training projects we are doing in different places in the world.
Those who tell the stories, shape the culture.
A major focus of our work is to raise up new visual storytellers in other cultures. The goal is to empower them to tell their own faith stories via the many new 'channels' available on the internet.
