About this project
We are partnering with GodTube, GodVine, and GodUpdates to bring you one of the most anticipated scenes of The Pilgrim's Progress!
About the Scene:
When the weight of Christian's burden is at it's greatest he comes to a crossroads where he has to choose which path to take. The widening, lush PASSION PASSAGE or steep, treacherous PATIENCE PATH.
"...ponder the things you have learned that they may prod your sides and lead you to the place your heart so longs for...",
As Christian fights his way up the hill via PATIENCE PATH, the road narrows in on him and his burden becomes unbearable to carry. He needed to exchange that crushing weight of sin on his back for a redemption that he himself could not provide. Then Christian reaches a crucial moment in his life when he finally finds the redemption he hungered for. He sees light coming through the clouds ahead and the burden he has been carrying on his back is finally loosed from his shoulders where it rolls into a large cave as if buried in a tomb.
With the weight on his back finally gone, Christian celebrates his freedom, unaware that the journey ahead is a difficult one, and he has yet to face Apollyon!
The Pilgrim's Progress: A Kickstarter Success
JOIN THE TEAM! Help bring the impact of CGI Animation to one of the greatest stories of all time. The Pilgrim's Progress!
Our first two Kickstarter campaigns were a great success with over 1,300 backers! With the funds collected we have nearly completed the Swamp of Despondency scene, have finished a preliminary trailer (see below), have nearly finished the scene where Christian first discovers the "Book", and are producing the scene with the Worldly Wiseman. We are now ready to animate the scene where Christian loses his burden!
Together we will impact a new generation with a story that has had a forever impression on lives for over 300 years.
In 1978, Liam Neeson launched his acting career by starring as "Evangelist" in a live-action version of The Pilgrim's Progress. In 2008, Danny Carrales produced and directed a modern-day adaptation. And now, we are producing the first-ever, CGI, feature-length film of The Pilgrim's Progress.
Experience the exceptional quality of our production by viewing the preliminary trailer FUNDED through our first Kickstarter campaign!
