A Purposeful Christian Movement

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Illum Productions was approached by first time documentary director, Shara Pradhan, to assist her in spreading the word of her worthy cause of attempting to reduce suffering in third world countries by helping feed one million malnourished children.  The film follow’s the Baker family & their legacy as their grandfather missioned in China to the current movement of the family through Mozambique & has been in production over the last two years & Iris Global Films is in the last stretches of their mission.

Jerry, our creative director, has agreed to assist Iris Global with their film by creating a minute long animated sequence for one of the more sensitive parts of the film.  The scene will be stylized in a graphic novel style, minimalized by design.  “The director really wanted a stylized look to emulate the despair seen in these regions.  I am hoping to drive the illustrations by the documentary’s audible message in order to set the tone necessary to drive home their intent.” Jerry stated.

The filming of Compelled by Love: the Legacy of Iris continues in Pemba during the month of July & will be in post production until the beginning of the year.  Shara plans on holding the first film premiere in Bethel Church, Redding, California the first week of January.  Illum will be donating $4,500.00 worth of time & animation to this production.
