The church gets to tell powerful stories every single week. Furthermore, as creatives we harness a craft that can cut through the noise of culture and invite people into God’s greater story in incredible ways. In this pre-conference workshop, you’ll study the arc of story, the filmmaking process from storyboarding to final export, and the various techniques that go into phenomenal storytelling.
