If there’s anything more fitting with the concept behind my intentions, its this:
“You can collect little bits of reality- voices, actions, landscapes, images, people talking- weave them artfully into a story and audiences will watch and wonder. If you are really skillful, they will laugh, be spellbound, or even weep. Your reward? Moving hearts and changing minds.”
Michael Rabiger, Directing the Documentary.
To make such a statement on people’s lives is going to be a hard task, but one I feel is worthwhile. As a young and aspiring filmmaker I’m ready to impact the lives of today’s church and reveal a fierce reality of the culture we live in through the form of a documentary.
Is the Irish church doing enough? Some may be content with church life; some may not. One thing is for sure, its a question worth asking. The reality is, we are living in a society where Christianity is becoming less and less important. Is that because people are more open to other influences or is there a greater underlying problem within the church’s effectiveness to engage?
This blog is set up to take you along the creative journey as I firstly look into our church’s history and doctrine. From then I’ll be able to approach today’s Christians to get a general consensus of what the church is doing. This won’t be focusing predominantly on one denomination; these questions need to asked to the Irish church as a whole.
As one may surmise this will test the church’s belief in what it’s doing. That’s a good thing.
As for now this is a solo effort but one that I have been pondering and praying about for numerous months. I’m willing to use what God has given me as a means of impacting people’s lives for the greater good.
If you want to be involved in any way I’d be very grateful. Don’t hesitate to get in touch.
