Jubilee Project in partnership with Pastor Francis Chan recently made an extremely touching short film titled “Blind Devotion,” a masterpiece about unconditional love. The story goes when a devoted wife and her loving husband faced the biggest dilemma in their lives, which will put their commitment as a couple to an ultimate test. The double-pun in “devotion” in this short film is amazing.
Just as she thought she was persistently staying devoted to her husband by choosing to continue to fulfill her roles as his wife after she became blind, unbeknownst to her, it is he and his devotion to her that first makes it easy, and possible at all maybe, for her to keep on loving. It is true that love and marriage means sacrifice, when we love someone we become selfless, devoted and we learn to accept the one we love wholeheartedly. Marriage may go in waves of ups and downs.
With this, trials of love and commitment between partners are being tested, but how far would one go for the one they love? This short film had great aspects to the video which gave it a greater meaning with a deeper understanding. The scenario is very unpredictable. Little will the viewer know what will happen next. This short film has great suspense throughout the video by giving blackout passes in between some scenes. Creating a deep connection between who ever watches the film to her story due to her being blind.
It also gave flowing transitions from when she was happy with her life to her becoming blind, to then her being watched over by her husband. Loved the color grading of this sort. The understated tones really added an antique texture to it and the intimate closeups and wide shots were blended well; the film was diverse and visually interesting. The voice over and dialogues are really good because it’s easy to connect with the characters. It has a great storyline. Not only did the shots and colors make this film great, the track used in this short film was powerful too.
From the soft melodies with joy when love was present to the soft dark piano keys that brought the mood down to a deeper understanding of their struggles. Definitely a great short film! It’s like watching a giant leap in terms of filmmaking maturity for Jubilee Project. These groups of filmmakers and producers are becoming better by each video they create. Comparing it to their other videos one can delve into the message of this film. This heart melting story shows how love can make people so devoted to someone special.
It’ll open hearts to the fact that there’s nothing love can’t overcome. The message was, “When you make the sacrifice in marriage, you’re sacrificing not to each other but to unity in a relationship. ” It has a message so clear and precise that it cuts deep in people’s heart and awakens their senses in so many ways. Sacrifice may sound awful, but it is one of the purest ways to show love to someone. Saying “I love you” is good, and necessary; but, giving of yourself, time after time, is proof that you really mean what you say.?
