The Jesus Dilemma Series started today.
I’m super proud of my team, the production team, and the tech crew today. The set looks amazing. I sat in on the first service and so many people are responding and coming forward.
This message is about who Jesus is and who different people say he is. Such a controversial discussion and I hope it helps many go from neutral to making a decision about him. For or against.
The set. There are 8 55 inch HD screens on mounts. Jim Stamps the producer came up with this idea to mimic the tag cloud branding. Super great idea. It meant that I had to make several videos that would change the words ever so often at different moments.

I made a quick Bumper yesterday for the Jesus Dilemma kick off. I had to come up with something that wouldn’t be super lame in about 2-3 hours. It’s not the coolest thing ever, but I kinda like it.
After effects for animation and camera shake, Twitch, custom grading.

I wanted to make a piece that dealt with the character flaws we all have that might prevent us from making an impact on our world. I think the biggest one we Americans have is “Apathy”. We see the problem, but do nothing about it. This is a charge and prayer to break free from that.
I was super excited to see the video get picked up by Collide for their weekly video page.

With the releasing of “Apathy” and the 3 “Jesus Dilemma” trailers, I feel like we are just getting started here. I am challenged, excited, and blessed to be working with the crew at The Rock church in San Diego. I have a DP that has incredible patience to work with someone like me. He has skills that could take him anywhere, but he is giving it to God and killin it. Props “Beard”. My editor, David Schulz, recently released a documentary exposing the abuse and horror going on in Burma, specifically the reality of the Karen people. He is that guy that makes fun of crap. It’s crucial to have someone like that to avoid ever brushing against church cheese. Our producer, Nicole Franco, is no joke either. She produced “To Save a Life”. A real professional. Even though he is not directly on the video team, I love working with Gene Kim, our audio guy. Not only is he super qualified, talented, a musician, but he has a big heart for ministry… Crucial. Thats the crew, and you can expect great things because of these guys.
We have a few additional and crucial team players; Jim Stamps, the broadcast director. Dave, Jim’s contracted editor, and Ted Vaughn, the Director of Production and Creative Arts.
I am looking forward to the next chapter and level in our work.
Easter promos. That is a media challenge. As a christian you really want to show an empty tomb. That is the ultimate reality, but for the world who might not even believe that, what do you do? This year I just wanted to tell the story with some energy and excitement. Almost with authority so that I could energize skeptics to give it a shot. I’d love to see what your church is doing. There are some really great ones out there for sure.
This is the final trailer for JesusDilemma.com.
History records that a young Carpenter from the wrong side of the tracks was tried three times in a night, and then killed in a public execution. Crucifixions were common. The response to this one was anything but.
His life and death has changed the course of human history, altered art, created the calendar, ignited wars, reset national borders, inspired governments, divided families, caused riots and brought people to their knees.
You can love Him or you can hate Him. You cannot ignore Him.
