Two new films!

Drum roll, please...

Last night I finished and submitted my entry in a filmmaker competition hosted by World Vision and Sojourners. The premise is "What can you do to end poverty?" The goal is mobilizing people to take action.

Thanks to Dani for her help with scripting and statistics, to Owen for his camera work on short notice, and to my excellent friends who play along so well even when it's cold outside.

Lets go end poverty together, eh? Are you with me?

The next film was for the "Chi Alpha film festival" that happens each year at Winter Camp. Every year people try to be funny in new ways... this year we aimed for excellence first and humor second.

I wasn't as hands-on as usual with this production but instead was the fire under the pot so that dinner would be ready on time (administrative and motivational help). Most of the credit for this one goes to Josh Hughes. After a group brainstorming session he hashed out the plot and wrote the draft. The dialogue required the collaborative efforts of Josh, Robbie, Jamie, Josh Moseng, and Shane. I then edited the final script and engineered Robbie's voiceovers.
Now, without further ado...
