The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie brings a whole set of unique experiences, but through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to hopefully laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time.
I like narrative storytelling as being part of a tradition, a folk tradition.
Our mission at Shepherd Church has always been to lift up Jesus that whole world might believe, as we see in John 3:14-15 and John 12:32. When we got together with Mel and his team, we talked about this theme of lifting up the name of Jesus and being a light in a dark world. Our church is situated on the hills of Porter Ranch in the San Fernando Valley, which makes us feel we are a small part of whom Jesus was talking about when He said, ‘You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.’ Then we thought about the city in which we live.
