We're gearing up for another shoot day over here at SALT! The goal: to create a sweet, quirky, and beautiful customizable web-based film for open and affirming congregations.
We imagine these congregations using the film in the following ways; (1) as an engaging piece embedded in the home page of their church’s website; (2) as a charming invitation that folks can forward to their friends, family members, co-workers, etc.; and/or (3) as a zippy thank you note that churches can send to visitors after they show up on Sunday morning.
In our experience, many well-resourced, tech-savvy churches are using short films in just this way – but the films can cost buckets of money to produce individually. So, our idea is to provide the same high production value and tailored-to-your-church touch, but at a *much* more affordable cost.
To give you a feel for what we have in mind, here’s a rough draft of the film’s script (and visual references are in the collage above!):
At (Central Christian Church), we are practicing love because...
Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way.
Love is not irritable or resentful.
Love does not rejoice in wrongdoing,
But, love rejoices in the truth.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things.
LOVE NEVER ENDS.
Join us at (Central Christian Church) as we live into and practice this kind of LOVE.
Central Christian Church
We envision making these films available to congregations on a sliding scale basis ($175-$375), depending on the size of your church. $175 for churches with 50–100 members; $275 for churches with 100–500 members; and $375 for churches with more than 500 members (we’re also open to a “pay what you can” model in special circumstances).
Please let us know if you’d like to take part in this round of customizable films - and, if so, please email your church's name, website, "pay scale," and contact information to:
As always, thanks for your interest and support of the SALT project - we couldn't do any of this fun stuff without you!
Peace and rainbows,
The SALT Team
