In order to facilitate an environment that encourages the development of secure relational experiences with God, we cannot simply tell people what is real . . . we must show them.
To that end, we are working to create industry-leading content highlighting the lives of men and women who exemplified a secure relationship with God, a critical step in helping people not simply know the biblical text better, but also shift their relational paradigm with God through converting their imaginations.
As part of Eden Studio’s discovery process, we connected our subject matter experts (archaeology, biblical scholarship, ancient near eastern culture, warfare, practice, etc.) with a high end animation studio to reconstruct seminal moments in the history of Israel. After multiple rounds of edits and refinement, this concept art represents what these events would have actually looked like if you were there.
We are working as executive producers on a multi-season, live-action miniseries on the life of Israel’s King David. Given the breadth of narrative content and the unique window into David’s interior life through the Psalms, this series will highlight his relational dynamic with God through the Davidic Psalms told against the backdrop of the events of 1-2 Samuel. David provides an example of someone who had a wide range of experiences (both good and bad), yet remained emotionally vulnerable and relationally present with Yahweh throughout.
We are committed to be as historically, culturally, and theologically accurate as possible. Telling this story well will earn it an R rating due to its grit, violence, and adult themes, something akin to Braveheart or Gladiator.
Our hope is the David Miniseries will go a long way toward converting the imagination and giving people a window into what is relationally possible with God, self, and others.
We will know we have accomplished our mission if the audience responds to the series in these three ways:
If these types of responses are common, we will have taken a significant step in converting people’s imaginations to what’s possible in a relationship with God.
