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.

Feel free to contact us to ask questions or to see how we might be able to collaborate with you.

Teaching classes at Indian Bible College in Flagstaff was one of the highlights of my year. Students came from many backgrounds; Eskimo, Navajo, Apache, Inca, Lakota, and even a girl from jolly ole England!

On Saturday I had 11 students show up to help shoot a short film. In the  morning we finished scripting the project and then in the afternoon we were out in a local park right on the edge of the mountains shooting the various scenes. We ended up fighting the wind (microphones don’t work well in high winds) and the ever changing (because of all the clouds) lighting conditions. But I must say, they did a great job and the resulting video looks great! On Sunday I attended a Navajo church out on the reservation. The rest of the day was spent editing the video together so I could leave them with something usable. We’ve been invited to go back in April to teach an advanced class.

Time for a brief update on some things we are working on.

An emphasis will be on mentoring/training projects for the next season.  This fall we will begin of a series of film production workshops for young people in Eurasia – using mobile devices as the main production tools.

Trends in global youth culture tell us that the rapid creation and deployment of visual stories – by and for young people – is a key way that kingdom stories will be spread and witnessed in the future. We aim to train 100 young people (ages 16-24) to tell short visual stories using the tools they have in inexpensive mobile phones, smartphones, and desktop computers. It is all about empowerment and creating a groundswell of new storytellers who are not dependent on outside resources and who speak the language of their own generation.
