“It takes about $38,000 to fully fund just one translation of the JESUS film…“

1. Written Translation
First, the film is translated line-by-line. A tremendous amount of care is taken to maintain both the spiritual meaning and a similar syllable count of the original English version. When a people group has no written language, we use a recording-based technique instead.
2. Video Matching
Temporary voice recordings are matched with the timing and tone of the original. Native speakers and language experts review the translation for accuracy and faithfulness with Scriptures.
The recording process begins. About 20 voice actors work during a two-week period, voice-by-voice.
4. Mixing & Editing
The dialogue is synced with the film, then the music and sound effects are mixed. Native speakers review the film for accuracy, power, and cultural suitability.
The film is then packaged with projectors, portable generators, screens and speakers for distribution throughout the world.
Finally, the film is ready to be shown! Missionaries in the field use the production packages to screen the newly translation film to people in their own native languages. With the gospel clearly communicated for the first time, people’s hearts truly respond. To see the incredible impact, simply view this video…
