What has the gospel, beautiful scenery, moving music and splendid acting? MY NEW MUSIC VIDEO!!!
Well, it's not entirely new.
Last semester I took a filming and editing class, and I loved it! My favorite part was making this music video. My least favorite part of making the music video, though, had nothing to do with actually filming or editing. It was choosing the song! How could I chose between American Authors, Sleeping At Last, Disney and Ben Rector? What about a good Ellie Goulding or Rend Collective song?
When I listened to David Crowder's "Back to the Garden," however, I didn't need to hunt anymore. The song stirred something in my heart and soul, a need to create something that boldly told the story of the gospel.
For the next week, I listened to the song on repeat, going through every scene and shot. Oak trees right by my house caught my attention, but construction right next to them ruined the picture. Bummer. Unless... I then decided to use the construction area as well as the magnificent oak trees to convey my story, a story of redemption and grace, of sin and salvation. I hope that you enjoy!
