Outside Perspective

October 17, 2008 at 11:15 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This week we were in Michigan. On Monday and Tuesday we were northeast of Detroit shooting a story that we will be sharing in the future. After the shoot we made our way to Grand Rapids. On Wednesday morning we had the privilege of screening the film with the staff at Flannel.

Flannel produces the short film series known as Nooma. They are producing some of the best short films, period. We’ve enjoyed their work and looked up to them for several years. To sit down and share our film with their staff and a few other friends in Grand Rapids was an honor. It was also a little bit intimidating to be honest.

They were great. They expressed a lot of excitement over Anthem. They also gave a ton of GREAT feedback, constructive criticism, and encouragement. It was exactly what we needed.

As Andrew and I processed on the way home we were so grateful for our time with Flannel. We discussed the whole concept of being open to an outside perspective. Often times we can be so wrapped up in our own thoughts, ideas, projects, etc., that we close ourselves off from an outside voice.

As you stay close to your own ideas it is so easy to lose focus and perspective. Having a positive outside influence in your life can provide the perspective to make you better a person. Opening up your organization to an outside perspective can make you stronger and more efficient. We all need close and consistent community to do life well. However, I believing more than ever that an outside influence can protect you from blind spots and closed minded thinking.

We believe that Anthem will be better thanks to the feedback from our friends at Flannel.

How about you? Do you have outsiders that you occasionally let in for some feedback and perspective?

This coming week is a HUGE week for us. We’ll bring you up to speed on Monday.

Enjoy your weekend,
Matt & the BV Team

Radio Show in Dallas

September 5, 2008 at 11:36 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

Hope everyone is having a great week! We have something a little different for you today. While we were in Dallas in production on Anthem this summer, we had the privilege of being on KCBI’s morning radio show. Click the link below to hear the audio from the show.

There have been a lot of new people joining the Broken Voices conversation. The radio show will give you a chance to hear the heart of why we are here and what we are doing. If you are new to what we are doing, please join us in praying for God to do the incredible in the hearts and lives of young adults in this country. More than an organization, Broken Voices is about the belief that our lives truly do matter, and that we all could be used by Him to echo the Anthem of God into the very places we are living. We love you all and thank you for your prayer with us and for us.
