I created this video as a way kick off the “Narrative Writings” section of the Thread series at Riverview Church for RivKids. We wanted to start this section by telling the story of Jesus’ birth. However, since it was during the summer, we didn’t want it to feel like the Christmas story. We were also concerned that the kids might ignore the message because it seemed familiar. I brainstormed the idea to frame the Narrative Writings as the Ultimate Hero’s Tale because Jesus came to be our ultimate hero. So, to connect to the hero theme and make the content feel new, I decided to make this first video an origin story for the hero. Every great hero has a great origin story, so our ultimate hero has the ultimate origin story. I wrote, filmed, directed, casted, and edited this video.
