Urbana 12 Video - Mr Eddie

Several months ago, I embarked on a solo trip to NY City for a video project. You can read that original post here.  But I was also able to glean a very usable alternative video for the recent Urbana Missions Conference as well as what i went to capture.  The video below may start out the same way as the original, but it goes in a completely different direction, a direction is fueled by a story that the participants at this recent Urbana studied the morning before they saw this;  read Luke 14:15-24, then watch:

Mr Eddie- Banquet from InterVarsity twentyonehundred on Vimeo.

Because we were already intimate with the themes and purpose of Urbana, I was able to recognize a key metaphorical (as well as literal) idea while filming Mr Eddie.  Talking with Mr Eddie as we shot helped develop themes and explore more avenues to pursue, namely his (now famous) last quote about hunger and wanting to be at the Banquet. The video may seem like I just shot him all day and he came up with all this by himself (well, a lot he did) but talking with the subject off camera usually can yield many new ways a video can lead.  In this case, it was during a subway ride.
