It was very hard to choose three prizewinners out of the 26 videos you all submitted. We found ourselves wishing there were more prizes to give! Here are the other finalists we selected. We think these videos deserve awards, so we’ll be awarding a $40 Doorposts gift certificate as an honorable mention prize to each of these submissions.
The Christmas Story, submitted by Angila S. and written by her daughter, Allie, was a very close contender. The whole family is involved, the costumes and props are creative, and everyone is so enthusiastic. We love the wise man, with his great accent and the paper-bag hat!
Plagues, submitted by Michelle F. This was another of our favorites. These kids put a lot of effort into preparing their props and making this video. And you can tell they’re having a good time with it too! (They also made a great video of Moses striking the rock in the wilderness.)
Jesus Calms the Storm, submitted by Jeremy G. This video should win a prize for a well-made set and some classy video effects. Enthusiastic participation from the young ones too! This one has been very popular in our “People’s Choice” awards.
Jesus Heals the Cripple, submitted by Jason B., is winsome in its simplicity, and makes a very effective video. Another of our favorites! Great camera angles, acting, and family group effort.
The Story of Ruth, submitted by Charitina, also deserves special mention. Their script is well written, and this family has skills in the acting department. And we love how they involved the whole family, even Grandma!
