    This is THE sweetest thing ever. I and my two kids are still watching it in January! The filming, editing and music is spot-on. It makes me teary every time… I’m going to have to get the music.
    I’m not Christian (or any religion), but if I were, I’d be thrilled to bits with this gorgeous version of the Christmas story. Stunning.

    That is a nice video camera. It has probably been asked somewhere before, and you have probably answered many times, but what sort of camera did you use? Very nicely filmed.

    @SentinelAdams Joe’s planning on doing some new, completely different stuff later this year.

  22. SentinelAdams says:

    @stpaulsartsandmedia I didn’t realize it was made specifically for the film; it’s really good! Any chance he’s planning on putting out more music? ‘Celeste’ has become one of my favorite songs, and it’s hard to find music of that style that’s also written to glorify God.
    I also hadn’t watched Good News of Great Joy ’till after your reply; the creativity at St. Paul’s is inspiring. Blessings from the USA!
