creative fuZion lab //6//the process...

Welcome to "fuZion lab" at designing for Philistines (on Thursdays)...
Once upon a time there was a blog kingdom where freaky creative’s could share the chaos created in their minds for THE Kingdom.
Sadly, it went away. Yet the creative minds keep blogging.
Now there is a place to share all those creative elements again at the fuZion lab on Thursdays.
So here’s what you do…
1. Each Thursday YOU post on your blog on whatever creative church element sparks your passion.
2. In your blog, link back to this weeks specific creative fuZion lab.
3. Then link your particular post at the Mr. Linky below. (I'm working on the Mr. Linky's)
4. Then come back and comment. If you don’t blog yet, still feel free to share your idea in the comments.
5. Then off you go. Visit other people’s ideas, comment and share.
6. Ready to begin? Here we go.
Let the creative fuZion begin.
Spread the Word.

Taking this one from the ground up.
And I mean very literally.
The brainstorming is around a 5 weeks series. Beginning the last weekend in February.
The working title is "Lordship of Jesus Christ"
Stage set is building up to a wall of boxes with photos on it; sort of think of one side of a Rubik's cube.
Each week we will add box(es) to the stage design.

The final week there will be a total of 9 boxes in the design stacked into a wall.











Week 1: Surrender/submission.
tug of war...
possible dramatic sketch of two people tugging against each other. Writing team working on this with the youth possibly acting it out.
This week will simply be one image.
Which we will attach on a box (24" x 18")














Week 2: Tough Love
Going to finally use a dance piece done to secular song "Bleeding Love". It will be done in the same hip-hop style (not as sensual obviously) as this clip from the show "So You Think You Can Dance" which was the inspiration for this element. The whole "heartbeat" feeling will be emphasized and linked to the tagline "You cut me open and I keep bleeding..love."
This is an element that I have had in the hopper since June, since I saw it on "So You Think You Can Dance".


Adding one new box and using a different side of the first box.
These two images.












This image was found at Flickr: Shared Worship Background Graphics group. You have to weed through a lot of stuff, but there is some really nice work that is open for sharing. These images were created by kennylovesbetsy's.

This week the images will be put in a computer program that will "cut up" the image and then blow it up and we'll printed out. Then we will attach the image it to the boxes.

Each week the appropriate boxes will be on stage for the pastor to interact with.

Hope this makes sense.

What elements are you creating or dreaming about this week?

And here's today's! I wrote about a few media elements Colin and I created. I should say, mostly Colin, as he's the real graphic artist. I did some leg work and recording work...other than that, he had the real time investment!

Creating video usually stresses me out. Actually, it always does, but I always love the way it feels when you're done and to see how God uses them!
