The app was produced on a micro-budget editing over 10,000 films into a ‘mash-up’ overlaid with an audio voiceover narration of each book of the Bible. Extensive use was made of royalty-free and public domain stock footage and audio files to reduce the cost of the project. The vision is to now produce quality “word-for-word” bible films made possible by taking advantage of technological advances revolutionising the film industry. Translated using voiceover audio narratives and delivered via international mobile phone and online networks.
