Osom, I never meant to imply that you lacked subtletly in the past, only that Christian films and music in general often do. I feel that is one of the things that many faith based production companies and record labels need to work on, because it is easy to preach to the choir, and also reaches fewer people. After pondering this film late last night before I slept, I had to pay another visit to this excellent allegory today. I came to realize
Spoiler (highlight to read)what the blood soaked wooden door actually represents, and why in the end he says he is "IN the door," rather than "through the door"
as one might expect.
Which leads us back to what I liked about the subtlety of the allegory. It made me think, made me work for it. And in the end, I still don't know if I got the same "clear" meaning that Chris@gbp got out of his viewing. Fascintating.
On a purely technical note, how did you do the blood on the door?
You completely nailed this.
Couldn't have said it better.
they sounded a little odd and distracting.
Not at all, they sound perfect, almost Vincent Price ish. The fast cutting gives them an urgency that's unnerving, and it works really well.
