“some of these kids… no one’s ever told them they could be good at anything.”

of everything David Perry and i discussed the day he invited me to be a part of ICiT, this one sentence has stuck with me.

2020 Vision

since there are way too many things to say about this film to fit into the five-and-a-half minute runtime, i thought a written commentary would be better. the following goes through the entire sunday morning film scene by scene and gives some insight into each aspect of the story being told and the production itself.

it’s extremely comprehensive, and you may not want to read it all at one sitting. i’ve divided it up according to the timer on the Vimeo video, in case there’s a specific shot you’re wondering about. if you have any other questions, feel free to contact me or ask in the comments below.

for two months, i devoted most of my waking hours to thinking about, shooting, writing, planning, editing, or watching the following project, commissioned of me by the church i attend, North Boulevard church of Christ.

our family at North Boulevard is embarking upon a new journey. though it may seem big or vague or different, it is in reality just another day within a long history of a moving, growing, breathing, alive Church.

our hope with the 2020 Vision at North Boulevard is that we may spark a spiritual awakening in our community, region, nation, and world. we hope the things we pray about today will bless generations long after our evening has come.

author’s note: i spent several hours writing and shaping the below, only to have this article circulate the Internet literally hours after stepping away from the keyboard: Walter Murch to Roger Ebert regarding 3D. quite frankly says more in less space than i ever could. please read it first if you haven’t already. if you’re still interested in my personal thoughts (which cover a few areas Murch’s letter does not), i have decided to post them anyway.

is 3D better than conventional cinema and television?
