We are of Dust & Stars

Of Dust and Stars is home to James & Rebecca Green, filmmakers, musicians and communicators. We seek to create film, music and art that builds bridges between the “sacred” and the “secular”, creating modern day visual parables. These we believe act as moments for people to encounter the presence of God. We collaborate with other like-minded artists, actors and communicators to help fulfil this purpose. It is our aim to impact the hearts and minds of those that listen to and watch these stories of hope, redemption and wonder. We speak a message of hope into our generation, seeking to impact our culture through the art that we create.

Undone

Joshua Luke Smith feat. Oddisee

Synopsis

Undone is a about the revolution within. Because to deal with the heart of a matter you must deal with the matters of the heart.

“Undone is a visual onslaught, conceptually depicting the turmoil of our inner worlds. The threats, the fears, guilt and shame that attack us in our “inner world” (our thoughts, emotions and desires).

Where do we place or guilt? Where can we put our shame? It is right to simply stuff it down deep within us hoping it will somehow melt away? How can we be free from the chaos of our hearts?

Death.

We need death to come before we can enter life. Jesus told a story about this to help us understand… “Let me make this clear: A single grain of wheat will never be more than a single grain of wheat unless it drops into the ground and dies. Because then it sprouts and produces a great harvest of wheat—all because one grain died.

As it is in this story so it is with our lives. We must die to our way of trying to make “everything right” trying to make ourselves ok. We are all broken and in need of a healing.

So where does this healing come from?

“Down where the river runs red, I found a new life in my death”

Jesus taught about a new life. A new way. The early followers of Jesus called it “The Way”. Jesus asked people to come and follow him, to learn to do what he did and to be like he was. He wanted to show people how to live the kind of life they were made to live. Not broken inside but whole. Not feeling lost but feeling found - feeling at home. Full of purpose and with a sense of destiny.

To be healed.

To be washed of all the darkness we feel we carry. all the shame to be washed from us like bloodied hands washed in a river.

“Down where the river runs red, I found a new life in my death”

Carry Me

A music video for Joshua Luke Smith

Synopsis

Carry Me is a film about coming home.

Referencing the ancient story told by Jesus commonly known as “The Prodigcal Son”.

Their was father, a good and kind father with two sons he loved very much. One son was wayward and decides to ask for his inheritance and leaves his family home and goes to a city far away. There, he spent all of the money he was due to inherit on partying, sex, drugs and alcohol.
When he had ran out money he was homeless and had nowhere to stay but a pig pen. He realises that he will starve to death if he stays there. He doesn’t want to go home to his father’s house because he is ashamed of his actions. But, eventually the son thinks to return to his father’s house and ask him to become a hired servant, that way he would be able to survive.

So the son returns to his father’s house.

The father is waiting on the porch hoping his son would return, imagine he’s been there everyday from sunrise to sunset, watching, waiting.

The father sees the son coming home on the horizon.

And the father runs to him.

hugs him inspite of the fact the son is covered in filth from the pig pen.

The son tells the Father he wants to be a servant and he’s so sorry but the father would never let his son become his servant. The father brings the son into the house, clothes him and throws a party for him.

The son forgot who he was.

But the father never did.

Carry me is the story of a young man, lost in the midst of drugs, alcohol, and wild living. It is a story of his realisation that he is not who he is meant to be, he is lost and ashamed but he knows where he must return to.
