Wake Up, Sleeper

When your friend ask you if you want to create a painting in the woods to illustrate the resurrection of Christ the only thing you say is, YES. I had the wonderful opportunity to work with some amazing guys - to bring Kevin Bruinsma's idea to life. The story boards and concept were pretty cool, it was neat to see someone else's creative process unfold. It also felt good to be a part of a project where I got to do the fun stuff and none of the planning, shooting, editing, thinking or preparation. These guys love what they do and it showed. Waking up at 3 am to be on set by 4:30am is not for the weak. We had some technical issues but that did not stop Levi Arnold, Josh Roeda and the other guys from pressing on and working out the details. I'm grateful and blessed to know these guys and to be able to create something cool for such a meaningful purpose. This video was shown during the opening of Easter Service at Faith Church and the finished paintings were shown on stage.
