Masking, Keying, and Editing

For the past week we have been masking, keying, and editing Project 8. Since this project involves scores of animals being keyed and masked into multiple shots, the editing process has been taking a little longer then anticipated. Lord-willing though the name for Project 8 will be officially released next Friday and the official trailer the following week.
Since we are working with a boat that would have made it absolutely impossible to film dozens of animals aboard, each animal was filmed individually on a green-screen. Then each of the animals was or is being masked individually into the boat. Masking is a rather tedious process that takes patience, so the Lord is definitely character-building through the editing process. :)
By God's grace we are still moving along in this film and we are looking forward to releasing the name of this film February 19 and the official trailer February 26!
Please keep us in your prayers as we continue the editing process and as we work behind the scenes on a few other films that will be produced later this year Lord-willing. We are in need of the Lord's strength in everything we do and as it says in Psalm 127:1,
"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."
In other words, this project and others will only be completed and have an impact for the kingdom of Christ if God is the one directing and guiding our filmmaking team. We are thankful for each one of you as our faithful supporters and know that you are in our prayers as well! We create these films with the sole desire to bless and encourage others as we kingdom-build through the powerful medium of film!
Below we have included a couple of screen-shots from one of the scenes we have been editing this past week, (a before and after photo, at least as far as we have been able to get. And no, the animals will not be flying in the final shot, except maybe for the raven.)
