Venture Visuals had the honor of producing a powerful Easter Video for Reality Santa Barbara. The short video was commissioned by the Reality Church leadership team to help set the stage for their Easter Service at the Santa Barbara City College stadium. The Video was premiered to an audience of over 7,000 people. The short film explores the word “resurrect”.
Our approach to the video began with a simple kernel of insight: The word “resurrect” carries a religious connotation that could deter viewers from watching. Under these conditions, we thought an analogy may capture the word’s essence without becoming too “churchy”. The resulting story follows a stack of dilapidated boards as they are restored into an object of beautiful utility. Although there are a few people in the film, the wooden boards function as the leading role. With an intentionally simple story, the philosophical message is left to be explored by its audience.
