Director's Comments

A short film inspired by Matthew 21:28-32 (the parable of the two sons)

A story of two sisters, a tray of cookies, a scary neighbor, and what constitutes true obedience.

Consists of approximately 1500 photos taken with a Sony RX-10,
Edited in FCPX,
VFX done in Motion 5,
Music from the YT music library,
Scripture quotation taken from the KJV Bible.

The video game was created by tracking a screen recording of the Lego "speed champions" game into the shot using 'add' blending mode to preserver the reflections and the texture of the bricks, and the sunset was made with a programable LED strip between the set and the backdrop, if anyone has any other questions feel free to ask.

I enjoyed making this, even though it took a long time, and was frustrating at times, and would appreciate any feedback anyone would like to give.
