Director Biography - Kristy
I am a student filmmaker from Pretoria, South Africa. I will be studying Cinema and Media Arts at Biola University in La Mirada, California.
What inspired me to start making films was my passion to tell stories and to spread the love of Christ in unique ways!
This film was a project that I did for my Senior final drama practical exam. It was the first short film that I ever wrote a screenplay and storyboard for. This definitely challenged me to put much more thought into my creative process and planning.
After weeks of working through screenplay drafts (and many hours in prayer!) the film finally started to come together.
This film is very close to my heart, as it is based on Jeremiah 18: “This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.”
