Introducing: The Vision Film Project
“The Vision is Jesus. Dangerously, obsessively, undeniably Jesus…”
We want to inspire a new generation to a deeper, more radical, active and prayer-reliant Christian faith by creating a visual representation of a poem - a call to arms - that originally inspired hundreds of thousands of people across the world more than a decade ago.
We want to create a video of Pete Greig’s Vision Poem.
Originally graffitied onto the very first prayer room wall by Pete Greig in 1999, the Vision Poem went out-of-control viral; appearing everywhere from Scandinavian drum and bass tracks to underground church publications in China. It also kickstarted the 24-7 Prayer movement all over the globe.
“It described everything I ever wanted in my life…*”
As well as inspiring individuals; this groundbreaking call to arms still embodies the heart of 24-7 Prayer today, and it is our aim to release it to a new generation through the medium of film. By working alongside some of the most exciting young filmmakers in the world, we’ll seek to inspire another generation to pursue an active, progressive faith through this still-revolutionary call to arms.
“For the first time, Christianity was being described in a way that resonated perfectly with my search*”
The final video will be launched at the 24-7 Prayer Conference in Geneva this October, but after that - it’ll be available online, available for all to watch and to share. Available in both a short 2 minute version and a full length cut, these videos will exist purely to bless and inspire those who watch them.
24-7 Prayer will be working alongside Birch: a team of incredible young filmmakers based in London, England. The film will be produced over the course of Summer 2016.
The £20,000 will be split between team costs for Birch and 24-7 Prayer over the course of the filmmaking process: from the people to studio space and equipment.
Part of the money raised will also go back into the crowdfunding process, with a small cut going to Crowdfunder, as well as payment fees and costs around rewards.
For a detailed budgetary breakdown, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional funds raised through The Vision Poem project may also be used to support creative 24-7 Prayer projects.
We will make our best effort to provide the rewards outlined in each category, but delivery is not guaranteed.
