BE A PARTNER TO MAKE THE FILM HAPPEN

HOW THIS PROJECT STARTED...

How can we retell this ancient classic story to resonate with today's generation?
How can we provide a film that can easily be used at a Sunday worship service?

The Annunciation started from these kinds of questions, and now we have come up with something here.


THE ANNUNCIATION IS A STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED
BEHIND THE SCENE OF CHRISTMAS,
EXCEPT THAT IT'S TOLD IN THE PRESENT TENSE.






Gabriel comes to a 21st century Mary
with a much delayed message that
her life is about to go upside down ...


PURPOSE OF THE FILM

■ For people today to "feel" the biblical story in today's context

For churches to have a visual story to share with their congregations as well as their neighbors

For us to revisit what it all meant

THEMES DEALT IN THE STORY

■ The glory of the Son, which human can't fathom but angels do.

■ The importance of our agreement in obedience to God's will.

■ God's faithful providence in the midst of our questioning and suffering.

PLANS FOR PRODUCTION AND RELEASE

■ Feb-July: Fundraising and pre-production
Aug: Production/Filming
Sept-Nov: Post-production and promotion

■ The film will be released for free. Each week leading up to Christmas in series of four short segments (each 10 minutes or less) the film will first screen in participating churches and groups.

■ The full movie will be available online for everyone around the world to watch soon after the final segment is released by Christmas Eve.
