I've seen a lot of posts about people starting this company or story or whatever, but it would be nice to have them all in one place. We all have the overall vision of spreading God's Word... but truly what is your particular vision and what are you doing to get there?
This thread will be a good way to come together to know the endeavors of others and help and know what to pray about. Its time for these visions to become a reality and with all of us praying for one another it can happen :)
So what is my ultimate vision/goal? When I started Astria Legends (as a company) I wanted a vehicle to be able to take my story out of the box and present it in ways seldom seen. Using a mix of acting, spokenword, dance, art, and voice acting I could take the story and bring it to life (in ways right now you really only see in things like Disney on Ice or such like). I've already done a "live trailer" tour last year and am perfecting what I call one person "Interactive Presentations" which I demoed at a work conference a couple weeks ago. (and received a massive quantity of overall comments that it was 'the most creative thing I've ever seen...I've never seen anything like it')
Basically I want it to grow to become a brand... the live trailers and one acts bringing "Disney on Ice" and beyond type works to places that don't normally have them and also a way to get the story and God's Word out to the public. The VISION is for this to become so known for the company that I can help other Christians with powerful stories bring them to life too. I just have to create that foundation with God's help (as He has been molding and shaping this vision for years now).
My vision for my own story series? To really dive deep into sin and the destruction it causes, how to fight it, and what happens when you fall into it. (separating the Sin and the Sinner) Also that your choices are powerful and can have dire effects on those around you, even ones that you will never meet.
Hi. I think this sounds great...I would love to share my vision as a painter trying to communicate in a non religious way. I would love to share more
These are some impressive visions! May God empower and guide them, as worship to him and encouragement to others.
Over a decade ago I had a hunger to storytell for Jesus. I had experienced some of the most powerful lessons about God's intents and nature from secular-themed fiction, so for me the thematic field was wide open. I wrote and sketched, improving my craft because a sacrifice to God should never be haphazard, but my soul, my family, and my job came first.
About four years ago I was looking for a field of adventure to storytell in; fantasy and science fiction themes appeared to be pretty well covered by some quality graphic storytellers. However I lived near a California mission town, and I found the historical collision of Fransican missionaries with native cultures to be rife with tension and loss and self-sacrifice.
As I pursue this goal I'm continually checking in on responsibilities I've taken on, and asking my God if I should increase, maintain or decrease my commitment to this vision.
