I am happy to inform that despite Covid-19, there is a "great deal of projects and preparation for video projects" happening behind the scenes, here Down Under - it's rather on a large scale, to the point that soon we will have "special local needs part" presented to Australian brothers and sisters about it. Very exciting times ahead!

I've been hearing about this project since last year. It would be great to know what the latest developments happening at Sydney bethel.

Yup. We just got the announcement here. They're going to be filming 'large scale' video projects here In Australia. They're asking for "up to 10,000 brothers and sisters between 18 and 65" to audition. There was 70,000 at our last International, so that's not a small number; and given the world conditions, they're allowed to audition over the net.

 

"Large scale" means dramas, I'm guessing. So I guess the Society is following Hollywood's example of filming in Australia.

Could you imagine a modern day redo of the Ten Commandments? Perhaps with a limited theatrical release?

I can just imagine having to sift through all those audition videos...

Some years ago, we asked publishers here to audition for singing and reading, and the response was enormous. But we got some good singers, and the reading of our publications, as well as video narration, has improved a lot, and the audio Bible production is well under way.

So will we see you in next movie released? [mention=4085]New World Explorer[/mention]

These movies spend years in development. The videos for the next five years worth of conventions are already in various stages of development.

Did you know that the construction project in Australia Branch is the only theocratic construction project that has been continuing since COVID. There was so much organization and the saftey regulations and infection control were probably the finest in the world. I think other projects may just be starting again but this one definitely has seen Jehovah’s support!

Australia news:
All LDC and BCS servants received a letter/update this week.
All projects remain suspended and stay on-hold till 1 Jan 2021 when they will be reviewed (with the exception of the works at Sydney Bethel).
Servants will now either be going into ISO/Quarantine to join the Sydney Bethel project, or return to their congregation.
Many of the servants have been on hold since the works were suspended/shut-down earlier this year.
Some have already been absorbed into the Sydney project bubble, with strict contact perimeters. This new change will address the remaining Building Construction Servants (BCS).

Thought it would be appropriate to post here.

 

If we do get selected to be in a video for JWB or a Convention video and someone recognizes us and asks to take a selfie with us we should humbly deny the request.

 

In Melbourne last year some brothers saw Bro Splane on the witnessing carts and ask for a photo but He declined.
