• Eurasian Youth Media Empowerment Project: It’s about mentoring and equipping the next generation (16-24 yr/olds) to tell compelling visual stories using mobile devices, and then distribute those stories to help change the spiritual imagination of their peers. See also, our GlobalFilmTraining.org site, which will soon be translated into several languages.

• Street Language is a short film resource that will be a catalyst for conversations and engagement. The story speaks to issues of homelessness, lonliness, poverty, mental health, and community. We have produced the film in partnership with Epicenter Pictures, another non-profit involved in mentoring students to effect change in their world through filmmaking.

Maasai “Opera” film project: Building on our relationship with Pamoja Ministries in Tanzania, along with MAPED (A Maasai Development Agency), we are beginning development of what we hope will be a feature-length motion picture that tells a story from the perspective of the Maasai themselves. We imagine that the film will have a strong traditional Maasai musical framework (hence the term ‘opera’) but tell a contemporary story of the struggles the Maasai face today and the hope some of them have found.

Visual Story Training: One of our passions is to see more effective visual stories told around the world. We are working with other organizations to train media professionals and emerging filmmakers in the power of story. We do this through collaborative mentoring projects and seminars.

East African Music Videos: We spent two years working with Pamoja Ministries in Tanzania to co-produce music videos for East African audiences. You can find posts and information on this site if you click HERE.

• Arabian Peninsula Prayer Video: In mid-2010, we completed this video for the Arabian Peninsula Partnership. The goal is to share stories of how God is moving to reveal Himself to people in the Arabian Peninsula. Despite severe persecution and restrictions on sharing the gospel, many are turning to Christ because Christians in other countries are praying.

We filmed the story segments here in the US and used footage that has been gathered by workers in the A.P. to created this video. It is posted also on YouTube and other internet sites where it is available to anyone who wants to learn and pray. We also created a DVD with almost 60 videos about many topics for prayer for the Arabian Peninsula.
