"I saw only pain in the eyes that were staring at me. I tried to smile, but didn’t know how he might react. My smile faded before I knew it. I was afraid. I wanted to talk to him and ask why he was there. I tried to say ‘hi,’ but my throat felt dry and my tongue stiff. As I walked home I could not escape the expression of hopelessness on his face. He looked much younger than I, fourteen or fifteen I guessed. He looked so sweet, but also sad as he walked the streets. My heart longed to speak… Continue
All in all, we are glad to have been asked to serve both Urban Soul and the national network here by covering the festival and getting interviews of the participants and leaders. Basically the network used the footage they shot on Friday with our footage cut in a bit to make it look like they were there the entire week. Our edits were unused.
While this was to be expected, we had hoped more of the focus would have remained comments made that highlighted the desire to see young people… Continue
I'm proud to announce the new Red Fridge Media website. I've been working long and hard on this for the last few months, and I'm incredibly excited to get it off the ground. Here's what you'll find inside:
1) A far far far better explanation of what it is we actually do.
2) A small sampling of the work we've done in the past, including videos, booklets and case studies.
3) Our first ebook - a 20 page pdf… Continue

"According to neurological research, the brain is able to process print on a page at a rate of approximately 100 bits per second. But the brain can process a picture at approximately 1 billion bits per second."

Ingmar Bergman, Swedish filmmaker, said, "Facts go straight to the head; stories go straight to the heart."
Madeleine L'Engle, author of A Wrinkle in Time, said, "Jesus was not a theologian, but a God who told stories.
I've spent the better part of the last year trying to figure out what it is that I'm trying to do. I think I've finally cracked the nut on this, and a new website is coming to support it.
Here's what to expect:
1) New look. It's a new website, so yeah, that makes sense.
2) Our first ebook called "The Art of Storytelling." It is meant to be a basic primer guide for non-storytellers in ministries. It talks about basic story structure, how to find the stories around you… Continue
This past weekend was one of the most unusual I’ve had in years. Like thousands before me, I started to read “Story” by Robert McKee. I was impressed with McKee’s ability to make story structure an art comprised of knowable elements rather than being an elusive mystery.
Being a composer this may come across as self-serving, but filmmakers should not overlook the importance of a composer, which for various reasons they do more often than not.
I often notice in filmmaking forum posts that all sorts of crew members are mentioned as required or at the least suggested when creating a decent film, no matter the genre or length of the production. What strikes me as curious is the bypassed role of the composer, which is rather odd, especially given the… Continue
This has been nothing less than a supernatural week at Urban Soul in Dublin Ireland. God showed up! We ended up with so much great footage.
The producer and the presenter from the national TV network and I ended up developing a great relationship together. I'm fairly sure this was the first time either of them had really been around a group of Christ followers committed to a biblical life of faith. They expected a few teenage "rejects" in a small church room making sandwiches for… Continue
Urban Soul is a unique event bringing together hundreds of youth from across Ireland for the single purpose of performing indiscriminate acts of kindness in Dublin that serve others and reflect God's goodness. Last year the city councils were suspicious. This year they are supportive. It begins Tuesday and lasts through Friday evening of this week.
For more info you can go to their website at… Continue
