Faint Not (College Contest)

President Shoemaker of Pensacola Christian College challenged the students to take a Bible verse that meant a lot to them and express it in some creative way for an upcoming contest (the winner got the rest of their tuition paid for). This could either be a form of artwork, photography, music, speeches, writing, or video.

I jumped on it.

I put in twelve hours of work in Final Cut Pro (because I didn’t have access to Adobe After Effects) to create a text-based cartoon. I’ve seen the style everywhere in popular videos and wanted to try one for myself.

(Winners to be announced next week)

UPDATED 3/13/17: Although submissions remained closed, President Shoemaker extended the contest for another week to allow more time to showcase exceptional entries. He invited nearly twelve more finalists to the platform today, including us nine from last week, to showcase their work and pick the final winners from that group.

Because Shoemaker loved the entries so much, he chose four winners to receive the scholarship, one from each kind of category: art, writing, music, and graphic design/video. I and three other finalists were picked to be the winners out of over 700 entries.
