This is a story of a man overcoming his situations. For the sake of telling a simple and strong story, we follow one male character on a path to overcoming individual, everyday obstacles to achieve greatness through God. Using real life scenarios such as sports/training, family/kids/wife, freindships, and work/school to drive the story forward. It's a journey through the thick hardships of everyday life, woven with the common grace that God grants us to help us see them through, making us stronger individuals on the other side of these obstacles.
This is the general idea and not the full story. We would take the time to develop the story that best suits what we are trying to tell.
Artwork is modern but also nostalgic. It's bold and encouraging.
Once the idea is approved we will write a VO script and a shooting script. The idea can be played with or without a VO. Our initial idea is to include voiceover to drive the story and connect it to the spiritual side of the character, however the visuals along with audio design will be have a life of it's own as well.
This will be shot over a few days. We set up real life scenarios with natural lighting. The feel will have more of an organic hand-held feel so that we feel the emotion of the character. We will get the since that we are right there beside him. Since it is character driven, the perspective is not omniscient but rather character centric cinematography.
This will play primarily on Social for engagement, conversation, and to build intrigue into our summer series.
We will also modify an abridged version to as a bumper for the series to shape what will be discussed that weekend.
