The Director and Producers look over tens of thousands of images to determine the artwork to be recreated. Several factors are considered; overall appearance, biblical accuracy, placement in the “story,” and ability of our volunteers.
The volunteers spend several months recreating the artwork. They use wood, metal, foam, cloth, tubing, almost anything you can imagine. They then cut holes in the artwork to accommodate cast members.
Cast members (church attendees) audition to fill the many positions in the artwork. Each artwork we present has at least 2 cast members and up to 13. Facial features, bone structure, size, and abilities are a few of the factors we consider during auditions.
Cast members are meticulously painted to match the artwork. Often times the makeup looks different under that sage lights, than in the makeup communicates form the stage, so the volunteers spend many hours practicing their craft.
Thousands of hours of work culminate when the narration, music, art, makeup, lights, sound, and video come together as a complete presentation sharing God’s Redemptive Design Through Living Art.
