Hello AG Supporters!
Happy New Year! Here’s a quick update of what I’m working on, since we’ve been getting more questions about AG3. In my previous blog post I explained that our plan was to release AG3 in “seasons” or groups of episodes that center around a specific story or theme. Over the past month I have been editing an episode tentatively titled “Redding”, which explores Bethel Church’s relationship with the city of Redding, through their school of supernatural ministry and their theology of dominionism, etc. It includes stories from local Redding residents, and Bethel alumni. This episode grew in length to the point of needing to split into a Part 1 and Part 2. In addition to those episodes, I have 3 other episodes in season one completed. That leaves 3 episodes that I have yet to start work on. Here’s my current list for season one which focuses on Bethel Redding:
When creating content like this, the process can evolve and be very unpredictable; no matter how much you plan an episode beforehand, there will always be “holes” in the story that need to be filled in with additional recording, or new ideas that you didn’t think of before. An episode might grow in length to the point of needing to split it into two, increasing your work load. In this season, I also realized that I needed to add an introductory episode (The Holy Spirit) that bridges the gap between AG2 and AG3.
It typically takes 4-6 weeks to create one episode. The episode is cut together in rough form, reviewed by those involved for approval, music is composed, and graphics/animation are created and added to the edit. Keep in mind that we have a small team; for those who are wanting an ETA… realistically, there are at least 3-4 more months of work to do (April 2024?).
Thanks for your patience, prayers, and support!
