This film is very personal to me because its content and theme mirror my own experiences over the last two years. I’ve faced financial struggles but through it all, I have managed to keep my faith in God. I believe that this unwavering faith has guided me to create this film. After completing the script, I endured through grueling pre-production, pulling crew, and cast members together. Production of the film was scheduled for a Sunday afternoon at five pm, hours before a nation-wide lockdown of our country, at midnight, was set to occur due to Covid-19. As a result, production was rushed as it occurred within a short space of time to allow the crew and cast members to return home safely. This resulted in a series of issues including; camera battery failure, improper green-screen capture, and VFX issues. The post-production process was plagued by continuous computer malfunction issues which were difficult to deal with especially during the lockdown. From its inception, this film has challenged me to my fullest potential and limits as if someone was continuously testing my faith again. There were numerous times that I wanted to give up but out of respect for my crew and cast members and all of their support, dedication, and hard work, I am submitting what I have. Though the film’s VFX shots, Sound and Sound effects in certain areas were incomplete, I believe that God has made a way for us to reach this point and he would guide us to have the final production piece finalized at another point in time.
This film is a reflection of the spiritual battle found in Ephesians 6:10 and the related verses. This film shows Paul, a soon to be father, with financial trouble, being tempted to choose the easy way out by taking that which does not belong to him. Paul’s temptation manifests in the form of an internal and mental struggle that begins to overpower him and he stands firmly in the armor of God as he battles evil. The bible says " The greatest battle is fought in the mind" and this is true. The protagonist Paul is a flawed servant of God, attempting to fight off evil by holding firmly to his faith. This faith is the armor of God, spoken about in Ephesians 6:10-20. It is the choices that we make when tempted, rather than the temptation itself that defines who we are. This film illustrates the themes in Ephesians 6:10-20 interestingly and uniquely, allowing any viewer to easily relate to them.
