Counting Sheep

Last week I finished up a new series video for rezlife’s upcoming series Counting Sheep. It will be focusing on discipleship as well as the understanding that God cares for us and so we should care for others. Since the title is Counting Sheep, I wanted the video to have a somewhat dream-like quality to it. This was the over-riding aesthetic for the music, the visuals and the animations. I...

Lights! Camera! Action!

This last week I finished up a new piece for rezlife’s upcoming series, Lights! Camera! Action! I generally do animation for the videos I create, but wanted to go a bit of a different direction with this one. About a week prior Megan and I had purchased a 50mm lens for our Canon T2i, and I really wanted to see what kind of videos I could get out of it. Rewind to last Tuesday, which was...

Nachos for Everyone

This is a fun little video I put together for KidsCOR. This last month they did a series entitled “Is That Really in the Bible?”, which looked at some of the stranger stories in the Bible. As I was coming up with the concept, I noticed that Balaam and the Talking Donkey was one of the stories they were going to be focusing on, so I decided to more or less base the art and video around...

New Motion Goodness

I finished up a couple of new videos this past week and thought I would share. The first is a promo for rezlife’s Souper Bowl Food Drive. I wanted to do something fun that also communicated what the event was about. Since the re-appropriation of ‘Super Bowl’ is often frowned upon by its trademark owners, I decided to subtly take a shot at it. So instead of straightforward-ly...

Attitude Adjustment

rezlife began a new month-long series last night, entitled ‘Attitude Adjustment.’ This series will take a more in-depth look at the Beatitudes as found in Matthew 5. Even though ‘Beatitude’ in meaning has nothing to do with ‘attitude,’ (as beatitudines is Latin for ‘blessed’) the parallelism of the beatitudes themselves (blessed is this person/...

The Most Interesting Man on Earth

Another installment for the Faith Like a Child series. This one is essentially a highlight reel of Moses’ life. Megan and I were talking about it the other day, and she remarked that Moses probably had the most interesting and adventurous life of anybody who has ever lived. Let’s consider a few highlights: + slated to be murdered as a baby, but saved when his mom put him in a basket...

Let’s Go to Bethlehem! (bring your crayons…)

This video was created for KidsCOR’s upcoming advent curriculum series Let’s Go to Bethlehem! I just finished it up earlier this afternoon. When I was initially brainstorming for the graphics and video, I was given the task of utilizing a map of the Holy Land as well as focusing on the manger scene with Jesus, Mary and Joseph. At first I was going to do something fairly...

I Feel Like I’ve Felt Like This Before…

Ok, it’s a terrible pun, but it’s also a felt board with felt characters, so there’s not much room to go any lower on the cheesy scale. Especially when the felt board is from the late 70’s. So, rezlife is starting up a new series after Thanksgiving called Faith Like a Child. In this series they’re going to be looking at the quintessential childrens’ bible...

Extreme Adventure 2011 Video

I finished up this video earlier today, and was fairly happy with how it turned out. Pretty straight forward- an adventure retreat with all kinds of outdoor excursions- so I decided to keep it as open feeling as possible. By setting it up like that, I hoped to be able to narrow the focus on a couple aspects of the trip while keeping things moving along. Again, I usually don’t use these...

The Third Wesley

While few may doubt my inestimable authority in the field of Wesley studies, I am yet not content to rest on my laurels. Meticulous research- involving countless hours of pouring over the slightest scrap of correspondence, genealogical records, ship manifests, etc.- has uncovered what may be the crowning achievement of my already luminous career: there was a third Wesley. Not Susanna, not Samuel...

Sad Bird, Happy Bird

New video for rezlife this week- Sticks and Stones.
This 2 week series for 7th/8th graders is on the things we say, bullying- you know, all those fun middle school issues we all remember so fondly. As I was coming up with a concept for this, I wasn’t having much luck really thinking of anything that would speak to this subject.
