Passion into Action

Jars of Clay

This past Saturday (June 2nd) my other job (at First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem) hosted a large outdoor festival, Alive '12 with Jars of Clay. My Ferasha Films team also sponsored part of the event by hosting a video contest, running the social media for the day, and filming an interview with the band. You can watch the video at the bottom of this entry. The event kicked off with a Walk.Run.Ride. and we raised over $30,000 for blood:water mission! Amazing what a community can do when united together on a church lawn. But for now, here are some of my favorite stills that I took. Enjoy!

Passion into action video competition

My Ferasha Films team has been working really hard lately. We're still in production with The Backyard Philly Project, and we're hosting and sponsoring Alive 2012 this June 2nd with Jars of Clay.

But, I wanted to let you know why we are super excited. We will be hosting Alive Festival 2012’s Passion into Action Video Contest! Since our passion is making films, we wanted to hear what your passion’s are. Alive ‘12 is an outdoor festival taking place this June 2nd in Bethlehem, PA. The goal of the event is to raise $30,000 for Blood:Water Mission, a grassroots organization fighting against AIDS and for clean water in Sub-Saharan Africa. The event kicks off with a Walk.Run.Ride., and ends with a free concert from grammy-award winning band Jars of Clay (also founders of Blood:Water Mission). So join in on the fun! Submit your video entry by May 15, 2012. For more information click here.

So I would encourage you to join the video competition! It's based off of criteria, you don't have to be a professional to make a good video. Just do it!
