Christian Filmmakers 24-hour Film Contest

On March 1st, Christian filmmakers across the country (USA and the world) will participate in an exciting and challenging event — a 24-hour film contest. Organized by members of Christian, an online discussion and networking tool for Christian filmmakers, the contest will be sponsored and promoted by several noteworthy organizations and will offer a prize of $500 to the winning entry.

The contest will begin at 6:00 AM on March 1 with the publication of a list of “security elements,” three of which must be included in every film submission. This will verify that the film was produced within the 24-hour time limit. Each entry must be uploaded to YouTube and the link given to the judges by the contest deadline of 6:00 AM (USA time) on March 2. Membership in Christian is not required.

Nathaniel Bluedorn, administrator of Christian and the driving force behind the 24-hour film contest, explains, “Christian is a growing network of faith-based filmmakers. We started in August and have more than 250 members now. We’re doing this contest to energize filmmakers and incite interest in filmmaking. More importantly, we want to expand networking among Christian filmmakers.” Christian boasts an international membership of Christian filmmakers at all skill levels from hopeful to veteran, specializing in every aspect of film production.

Christian is the outgrowth of a Google Group which was originally conceived as a means for maintaining contact among alumni of the 2005 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. Launched on August 22, 2007, Christian has rapidly grown to include 273 members at the time of this writing. The site is focused on facilitating discussion and building relationships among Christian filmmakers without excluding anyone on the basis of gender, race, or denomination.

The Lord Builds the House: The 127th Psalm

illustrated by Johannah Bluedorn

$25.00 Reg.
$23.00 SALE

The 127th Psalm has never looked so beautiful. Trivium Pursuit is pleased to announce the release of their newest children’s picture book The Lord Builds the House: The 127th Psalm by Johannah Bluedorn. 40 original paintings create stunning, colorful windows on every line of the Psalm, which begins “Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.”
In Johannah Bluedorn’s rich vision, each verse of the Psalm is illustrated with a portrait of “sumptuous simplicity”: farm and wild animals celebrate the bounty of nature; the beauty of family; the achievements of builders, bakers, and book authors; and the miracle of God’s protection. The book makes the Psalm accessible to very young children, and reminds adults of God’s provision for animals as well as for His people.
About the author/illustrator: Johannah Bluedorn has been homeschooled all her life and is self-taught in art. Skilled in the use of a variety of media, Johannah has illustrated several other children’s books, including Alphabet for Biblical Hebrew, Alphabet for Biblical Greek, Become a Civil War Re-enactor, My Mommy My Teacher, and the forthcoming book From Dark to Dawn: A Tale of Martin Luther and the Reformation (published by Books on the Path). In her spare time, she designs and sews costumes and raises Jersey cows. Johannah lives with her family in New Boston, Illinois.
