There is a lot going on around here this days… this week we're assembling What's in the Bible #5, and I just sent out the script for #6 to our content review board. I spent the day Wednesday speaking with digital media students at Huntington University in Indiana – ex-Big Idea artists Steve Leeper and Bryan Ballinger have built a really good program there and now have about 120 students pursuing digital media. They're making stop motion films, as well as computer-based production. Very cool!
I did a Q&A session with all the digital media/film students on their brand new green screen stage, which is WAY better than our little stage here where we shoot puppets! That evening I spoke at an all-school event, which was also a lot of fun.
I got back from Huntington late Wednesday night, then spent 5 1/2 hours Thursday in a recording booth for about five different VeggieTales projects. Whoo! That'll wear a fella out! (I'm still a little hoarse, two days later…)
And next week is big, because on Tuesday we officially launch the church version of What's in the Bible – a full church curriculum project that adapts the teaching of our DVDs for Sunday School use. If you're interested in such things, check it out here.
Do us a favor and send your children's ministry leader to check out the new site and the new content. It's time to take our kids a little deeper into the Bible!
Back to work…
Wow! Don’t run yourself ragged!
W/ what little voice work I’ve done, I don’t see how you do 5.5 hours!?!?!? Impressive.
Thanks for bringing such great stuff to all of our kids!
I’ve found some of your talks around the internet, quite a few in iTunes U, but I gotta hear this one! Talking about digital video! Where is it?! I’ll do some searching around, but I really hope it’s somewhere!
Thanks Mr. Vischer for visiting us here at Huntington! I really enjoyed your talks, and I am very glad that my friends were able to hear your story. Many students have taken what you said to heart, and I think that your words will be very influential in the future of our work.
Keep up the great work!
I’m unfamiliar with this so here it is. Back in 2000, I was asking God for something of my own to create. Things were ruff then but now there extremely crazy but I press on. This is for Phil Vischer, I hope this finds you healthy, because what he gave me I needed to enclude you in it. I don’t know how but he gave me something that is dear to my heart and its for children. I know you have things on the table right now as I ;have read. But, I can only say its important, he gave me a prototype, and I have been tryuing to find out your name, then it was the moving, the divorce, loosing my mother and spouse being attacked with drugs. I find myself still thinking how I needed to talk to you and how I needed you to lead in this gift he gave me to give children. I wont share it with anyone else but you. I just know I was to contact you and share it with you to oversee. Please this is not some crazy person. Just that I want to be obiedient, and its a REAL BLESSING GOD BLESS YOU. CONTACT ME AT; MsAdriene.Jefferson@hotmail.com the next bright IDEA YOUR SIS IN THE LORD.
Hey Phil, I just read you book; Me, Myself & Bob. My brother told me to read it. I got the book and began. Oh, no another one of the poorly written books I thought, where the writter writes just like someone would talk and not how we actually write! I got into it however and was deeply moved. I think you got the message God was telling you and it is a great message! The VeggieTales are safe and if God wants you in charge again it would be no difficulty for our father to arrange it. Remember he owns the cattle on a thousand hills,… and have you seen the price of beef lately!
Anyways, I am glad that you are continuing to wait on God. He has even bigger plans for your life. He has bigger plans for my life too. I have gone through the same thing that you did (minus the becoming CEO of a multi-million dollar cutting edge entertainment business) but, I had to die to self. It is painful. It is said “death in me life in you”. We die so others can have life. That is just what Jesus did, so in a way we get to be a little more like Christ going through the pain. As it is written “unless a Kernel of wheat falls into the ground, it abideth alone, but if it dies it brings forth much fruit”. We die so that there is much fruit, many saved, many good things done for the kingdom of God.
Your brother in Christ,
