1:00 – Introductions (including Jet’s)

2:00 – We started with the life of Jesus… seems like the obvious place to start… but why? 

5:00 – What was the creative process like for FTM part one vs. part two?

  • It looked different because there were just two of us sitting at the table… that made it a lot harder.
  • Creative process continued after we had shot the series… remember sitting in the meeting room in Birmingham when the idea for the study guides was born.
  • Remember sitting on the patio at the Ron Beach the first night saying “ok… what’s this thing going to look like?”

7:00 – Let’s walk through the steps… what happens first? – Talk specifics to FTM

  • Pre-production kicks it off… we usually have a meeting with our entire team to discuss the series… the look and the feel.
  • Stu takes the lead in the writing and logistics working with Barry and Dan on locations and points-of-interest.
  • Usually Barry and Dan have worked up a list of possible locations and Jeremy has put thoughts together about what could be talked about from an application and scripture standpoint.
  • Permits, planning, reservations, gear rentals, etc etc.    

10:00 – We’ll talk a lot of details about the two weeks we’re out of country in a couple episodes… but what are some logistics stories from FTM 1&2 that really stand out?

  • Quido and our Carnet!!!!
  • Really, explaining to Gus how different this production would be from his typical tours… and explaining it to Barry as well.
  • I can remember standing with Barry at Caesarea Maritima as Jet and Craig are shooting b-roll and we’re not moving very fast and Barry had this moment where he understood what the next two weeks would be like.
  • Definitely came back from FTM 1 having learned a lot…

20:00 – Don’t want to short change post production… why is that part of the process such a long period of time?

  • About 50-60% of the creative process is spent in the edit bay.
  • There are several iterations that come out of post production.
  • It’s magical to see it all come together
  • Talk about the process we use for getting feedback and the different rounds of edits
  • Talk specifics about FTM 1 & 2 edits
  • Has to be overwhelming to get back and start sifting through the hard drives

25:00 – Wrap up/ Tease next show
