Creative kids at New Life Christian Fellowship Church got a crash course in filmmaking this week as they took part in the Afterglow Filmmaking Workshop. Fifteen kids ages 10-15 wrote and filmed two movies based on biblical proverbs. “Team Drippy” created a film entitled “Player Gets Played” based on Proverbs 10:12. “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over allwrongs.” The story follows a boy as he asks 4 different girls to be his girlfriend; his friends find out and invite all the girls to a party, where trouble ensues. The film ends as the girls decide it best to forgive and forget, and move on.
“Team Infinity” chose two Proverbs to illustrate – 10:1″A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son brings grief to his mother.” showing one group of kids working on their homework, in contrast with another group dancing and goofing off, forgetting about their homework. The other focused on Proverbs 3:14-15 “Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn away from it and go on your way.” This film showed 3 boys stealing cell phones, then facing the consequences. Both films will screen at the Grenada Afterglow Film Festival, downtown on the Square – October 8th.
