The Magnetic North

 

The Magnetic North is a series of short films designed to engage seeking minds in questions of life and faith leading them into the knowledge of the Christian gospel through a poetic and narrative journey. It is our desire to effectively communicate the reality of God’s presence among us and that the Father is accessible to all because of Jesus. We will invite viewers to journey with us into the heart of the Christian faith.

 

THE FILMS

Cinematic and creative in nature these videos will be targeted at an audience between 16-35 years of age in line with our current demographic. It is our desire that the videos will reestablish a sense of awe and wonder in the heart of the viewers reengaging with the mysterious nature of our existence; the universe and our place in it; our relationship with the creation and the creator.

THE BOOK

The Magnetic North Films are rooted in rich life giving biblical teaching that we will package into a beautifully presented magazine style book. This engaging book will contain the full teaching with expanded content from the films with questions to reflect upon.

The book will be filled with photographs taken from the films and inspiring insights into the process of creating The Magnetic North. People will be encouraged to journal their thoughts as they themselves journey towards God through this process. We feel the book will create much added value to the films. 

DISCUSSION MATERIAL

Discussion material will be supplied with the Films to help facilitate group discussions where the films will be used in small groups or led environments. The Magnetic North could be used in small gatherings in homes, churches or coffee shops, in school RE lessons etc. The videos could also be used as single videos that could be shared with friends online through social media to open thought and dialogue around the Christian faith. The Magnetic North truly is a versatile resource.

Upon completion the TMN will be made available through the Of Dust And Stars website. The videos will have licensing which will permit ministries and other organisations worldwide to use the content for their own projects without licensing costs. 

SOUNDTRACK

The soundtrack for Magnetic North is guaranteed to be an incredible audio experience! It will feature some amazing fresh talent from ONM Music and will be a must have to accompany the film series.
