CHANGING THE WAY CHRISTIAN STORIES ARE TOLD

ANIMATED VIDEO SERIES

A sneak-peak of the work in progress on our ground-breaking film project based on the novel:

 

By far the most ambition project we have ever taken on.​ A project of this nature has multiple facets that need to brought together. We are assembling a team of highly skilled artists (including composers, singers, animators, writers and many more), to complete this project. Our goal is to tell the story of Christianity in a way that has never been done before using cutting edge technology that brings the spiritual realm to life in a whole new way. Below is a taste of the work that has already been done.

SOUNDTRACK

We are deeply blessed to have world-class composers and singers contributing to our project

 

The theme song for our project was co-written between Mauritz Lotz (music) and Lené Pienaar (lyrics). Ruhan du Toit (formerly the lead singer of "Touch of Class") is the performing artist. Below is a sample section of this track.

LYRICS 

From the above sample

If you could see you, through My eyes,

You're not a burden, no, you're My prize,

Worth the pain, the pice, the agony,

I took a cross, that wasn't meant for Me.

Beaten and bruised, by the burdens you bear,

I nailed them there, I made a way home.

CAST OF CHARACTERS

Here are a few of our animated cast members.

 

The novel has two stories. One a period piece about the life of Jesus, set in 30AD Jerusalem under Roman occupation. For that story we have a selection of characters from the Biblical account, such as Pontus Pilot, King Herod, some of Jesus's disciples, Simon Magus and more. The second portion of the novel is set in the modern era, and has exclusively fictitious characters, including angels, demons and a cast of colourful human characters.

PROOF OF CONCEPT PROJECT

The Garden of Gethsemane.

Our first objective is to complete an animated short story (of Jesus's night in the Garden of Gethsemane before His crucifixion). This will be used as a proof of concept for the larger project of the entire novel. Below is the environment and characters we have created for the Garden of Gethsemane short-film.

We have tackled this project completely on faith. The truth is that we are still in hopeful expectation of many facets of this project we trust the Lord will bring our way. One of these is the help of intercessors to support us in the spiritual realm. Another is the funds required to finish such an ambitious task. If the Lord should move you to support us in either of these ways, we would be extremely appreciative.
