Over the June/July school holidays, my Church hosts a Kids Holiday Club as an outreach for those in years K-6. This year, I was tasked with the responsibility of the daily drama, with the aim to engage the kids with an exciting story, and allude to the biblical teachings of each day.
The adventures of Maddie and Emily is a short, 3 part series following a duo of workers who have been tasked with building a shelter for the Kids Holiday Club (Water World). Unfortunately, the pair aren’t great when it comes to recognising how powerful their commander is, and don’t always listen to, or put trust in what he has to say.
The film script was written by myself, with the help from Ben and Robert. Shoutout to Daniel and Ben for helping out with general filming stuff on the days – Stage Crew with the world as the stage if you will. Props to the actors – Emily and Maddie. Editing done (the night before each screening) by myself.
Overall memory verse: John 8:12 (NLT) Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
Day 1 story: Matthew 7:24-29 (NIV) The Wise and Foolish Builders
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practiceis like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
I must say, this day was probably the most stressful, as when I looked back to find the footage for editing, I very quickly discovered that there wasn’t nearly enough to create a convincing story. Last minute panic and a lot of stress led to filming, editing, and dubbing this one in a single night. #NoRegrets #LooksFab
