" The Dream Job"

Artist Statement

John Smith appears to be an ordinary man with an ordinary job but his spirit is lost in a void. He has become an empty shell of a man who is programmed to perform his life every day in the same robotic manner. His very last gleam of deeply burried consciousness is sending a message of help to the universe. He is being responded with a gentle touch of an angel woman who shakes his world by planting a seed of life's energy back into his body. John goes through inner turbulence and then into a tunnel of purgatory into complete catharsis.

How it fits into contest

There is a spiritual battle in silent but a severe inner struggle of John's lost soul calling out for help to the higher power.
His dying spirit is accumulating all remaining resorts of life.
John's soul is standing out against the rulers and authorities and against the powers of this dark world.
He is finding his rescue in the heavenly realm when his call for help is answerd with an angel who is arming him with lively powers for his final battle.
John is going through the tunnel of purgatory with his feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace - represented in final scene of the movie with the angel's choir singing and encouraging his inner catharsis.
