For those of you out there who are addicted to Facebook (yes, I am one of you…), this video is for you. Have you ever watched an entire story, relationship, conversation or just some good ol’ drama unfold in your news feed? This clever take on the story of Jesus’ birth through Facebook was created by Igniter Media. There a media website that dedicates their time to creating mini movies that tell big stories. Here is what they had to say about this particular project:
This video is an artistic take on how the story of the nativity might have read had a social network existed at the time of Jesus’s birth. Follow this historical period as it unfolds as a digital narrative. This vignette is great for highlighting the truths and circumstances of our Savior’s birth in a fresh, unique way.
Pretty neat, huh. I loved the use of all the Facebook functions to the tell the story through Joseph’s POV. I also really enjoyed the Facebook event for the census. Check some of their other videos on their website. They’re pretty sweet.
