Behind the Scenes of Choices
Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya
Our office reflects on the highlights and challenges of one of our most popular resources in this behind-the-scenes video.
The Choices short film encourages young people to choose purity in their relationships and reveals the dangers of abortion.
This topic churned up a lot of unplanned discussions. People kept asking what our stand was, if we were looking at the theme objectively by factoring in different elements of abortion, and if we were going to address all those scenarios.
In a nutshell, it was an interesting production to shoot. It seemed to bring out a lot of silent, but heavy sentiments, worth addressing. We rewrote the script twice and changed the script writer. We decided, we would stick by the overarching message that there’s hope in God in every situation if we put our trust in Him. Life is important, and so is its sanctity. Deciding not to stay pure has consequences, and it’s all about life’s choices.
We are planning to shoot a feature length film or a series to address these important issues from every angle as much as possible.
