Creative Projects that explore how Jesus
did life with real people

Dramatic Encounters with Jesus:
The drama of when Heaven and Earth intersect.

WORDS

Theologians, Bible Teachers and Commentators share understandings of moments where people in the Gospels have profound encounters with Jesus.

FILM

Actors and Cinematographers dramatise the words, create scripts, and visualise context, bringing relevant insight to these ancient stories.

MUSIC

Songwriters and Musicians compose soundscapes, songs that interpret the words of the commentators and enhance the films of the actors and cinematographers.

Dramatic Encounters with Jesus

The stories of Jesus can seem irrelevant in a westernised world, yet they have captivated every culture in every age for 2000 years. Artists, writers and philosophers have been inspired to celebrate and explore these stories as they navigate their own humanity and spirituality.

When Jesus interacts, listens to, talks with and does life with people he shines a light on what it might mean to be spiritually human.

With a combination of teaching, writing, performing, composing, and filming, Dramatic Encounters With Jesus takes these interactions and gives the viewer and the listener an experience that will stimulate thinking, develop faith, inspire creativity, and enable insight into how Jesus is actually doing life now in everyday living.

Our Goals

8 PROGRAMMES

There will be two series of four 45 minute programmes each. The first series will be based on stories in John's gospel and the second in Luke's gospel.

CREATIVE PROCESS

Each programme will show the creative process of the actors, musicians and filmmakers, drawing on the bible teachers’ filmed conversations.

SHORT FILMS

Each programme will culminate in a short film showing the result of the creative process; the dramatised performance, cinematography, music, art direction, editing and location.

MUSIC VIDEO

Each programme will also feature the resulting music video of the song written by the musicians as they listen to the teachers, watch the performers, and are inspired by the cinematography.

FULL VERSIONS

60 minute films of the whole conversation between the teachers and theologians. 30 minute films of the whole songwriting process.

STUDY GUIDES

Study guides, notes and commentary to complement and enhance the viewers' understanding and engagement experience.

NEXT STEPS

When the programmes have been released we plan to create an accessible, immersive installation that merges the sights, sounds and words of the dramatic encounters with Jesus.
