1. Winter Storm
Interpretive Music Video (4:30) –
How quickly can a seemingly together life fall to pieces? How thin is the line we walk between a façade of success, and the edge of despair. Walk backwards through this short film and discover a new kind of Christmas sensitivity – the sensitivity that comes when compassion hits close to home.
2. A Brief History of Christmas
Stop Motion Animation - Comedy (4:00?)
Having trouble reconnecting with the true meaning of Christmas? Well, no wonder -- the cultural baggage we’ve packed on top of the holiday can totally obscure the fact that Jesus was born an outcast, a reject to both Jews and Greeks, in the dark and cold of a hard stone manger. Reconnect to the true meaning of this sacred time.
Interpretive Drama (5:00)
This bizarre short film takes you to the television studio of a mid 70’s talk show where the host is only mildly interested and the guest, Angela, is only mildly sane. Angela’s story is remarkable and shocking – even if she doesn’t seem to know it. Through a veiled version of the Parable of the Tenants (Mark 12) we are reminded that the light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
Music and Film – (4:00)
Mercy and Forgiveness are revealed through something as simple and as beautiful as a massive Sierra Mountains snowfall. This piece is as peaceful as Silent Night and as beautiful as God’s grace.
Interpretive / Graphic (3:45)
Jesus’ birth was foretold – and in the words of the prophets we find all kinds of clues to the time, the place, the nature, and the character of the birth of Christ.
