OUR JESUS STORY; the first of it’s kind as far as giving an African new interpretation and the use of an all black African cast and crew goes, promises to be a delightful watch and a totally deeper cinema experience this Christmas. The movie audio is on surround and gives the viewer the best of every little sound coming from different speakers all around the cinema halls , thus giving a live and much involving and audience drawing in sound experience. Picture is also of best quality as original footages are filmed on the much acclaimed Arri Alexa and Sony Cinema cameras with high resolution. Locations are as exotic as in the biblical/ Hollywood version, giving the same feel of the Jesus years and times. Costume is made to precision with nothing left to be desired. Story and screen play is outstanding , language is excellent and meet the settings. Dual plotting and sub plots is of international standards. Post production took a whole year and film is edited to meet all known stellar standards. OUR JESUS STORY LEAVE NOTHING TO BE DESIRED.
