I'm surprised that no one has mentioned this crowdfunded, app-based series, now in its second season, which is re-telling the gospel story more or less from the perspectives of the disciples and others "chosen" by Jesus. Created by Dallas Jenkins (son of Jerry B. Jenkins), who produced or directed a couple of so-so Christian films, it is a crowdfunded project that raised over 10,000,000 for season 1, and plans to continue in this way for seven seasons. Season 1 can be viewed free online here, or by downloading the free app, which works with Roku or various TV things. I don't know if this is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but the production quality is high and it's being offered free via smartphone with subtitles in dozens of languages and season 3 is 12% funded already. On the app, you can find a 20 minute introduction episode 0 "The Shepherd," a brief nativity that's well done. Season one trailer: https://youtu.be/K1-FoFj8Jbo
Greetings, I would like to take this time to introduce myself. I am a filmmaker based in Vancouver BC, Canada. Last year we completed my latest film Genesis Code which we are hoping will be released this year. This film is a story about a man who is blamed for the murder of his wife and the mysterious disappearance of their friend and her colleague. Struggling with his own faith in God, he sets out to prove his innocence on the day that his wife's spirit appears to him. (He believes she is leading him to the answers.) This is a "cat and mouse/who did it' film with elements and questions about God and who He is. Personally, my walk with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit has been full and blessed. The journey has been up and down, over mountain peaks and through valleys, which has led me to know how true God's love is for us. I have never been a skeptic, as I was born into a Christian household, but have met many people who don't know God or struggle with their faith in Him. My goal is to create and make inspirational films and where God is the center. The hero will encounter many challenges where their faith will be tested. These are stories with moral themes of good vs evil and light and darkness. I hope through these stories I will bring light, hope and inspire people to consider God and His truth. What would you consider some of your favorite movies/TV series that touch on the Spirit of Humanity and God's hand in the hero's journey? Is there a difference between faith based and spiritually based films? Would you prefer overt or subtle themes when watching these films? Thank you for your time and responses, God bless, Bryce McLaughlin
