here it is, my thesis film...I've been working on this for the past year and a half and now it's finished and I'm graduating tomorrow.
Luke 15:3Then Jesus told them this parable: "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.' I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
When I was first trying to come up with an idea I had the parable of the lost sheep in the back of my head. I really wanted to have a story that was founded with some message or parable. I had a hard time coming up with an idea based of this, and then I just started working on this idea of a man and origami cranes based off a digital painting I had done. The idea sorta fluidly came together after than point and I think that original message kinda worked its way back in. I just really wanted to create a feel good story that I could share with people that might have some emotional value. And I wanted to show how in people's roughest times if you don't focus on the negative God can show you, and use people to show you, an overwhelming hope and faith.
