I wanted to create an intimate feeling like a mother reading the Christmas story to her daughter, but I wanted it to feel like she was also reading to me (as a viewer) I wanted to make it feel intimate (all of the shallow depth of field) as well as a bit warmer than usual to give us all of the warm feels during Christmas time.

One human project. I decided the night before shooting this that we should have a banner for our Ash Wednesday Service and that it be a cool video idea too. Shot on a hand held DLSR Sony A7 III, with some tripod work. This video has a shakiness / raw element that brings some humanity to the project and is also the outcome of trying to make the banner and the video at the same time while trying to keep the camera clean from my ash covered hands.
