I am currently studying film at a Christian University. At the film society meeting tonight, the president of the film society handed out some fliers for a Christian film fest. Being an atheist, I was initially disappointed that I wouldn't be able to participate in this one, but after some thought, I came up with an idea. Why couldn't I make a short film that presents arguments for Christianity in a realistic way, but at the same time, also shows their flaws (Perfect example of doing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk8qkyguBXk). Perhaps this would be possible in a Sunset Limited type of film. Would anyone be interested in helping me write a script for a film like this?
You might find it challenging to find anyone on Think Atheist who would help with arguments for Christianity...but plenty on the flaws, of course. :P I think that a good resource for this idea would be Bishop John Shelby Spong. http://johnshelbyspong.com/
This discussion group isn't very active, but you may have a better chance of response if you also post this call for collaboration on the Freethought Film Festival Foundation Facebook Page. http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Freethought-Film-Festival-Foundati...
Yeah, my idea was to do something tongue in cheek that critiques and undermines Christianity while appearing on the surface to support it.
