This Advent we anticipate the coming of God. It is a curious, fairytale notion that God would come into the world as a baby.

Yet, this is precisely what Jesus claimed to do, and with great impact on history. Leading right up to Christmas, let’s take four weeks to reflect on these four intriguing questions: was the swaddling baby God, was Jesus sinless, the son of God, and the savior of the world? Beneath each question lies a profound hope, something so compelling, that Christians around the world and across cultures have devoted their entire lives to Jesus.

This is a short-film I wrote and directed for LG. The concept, "Life's good" was the main purpose of this work.
The ‘Art of Making’ series aspires to display and highlight certain people, which go against the spirit of today’s pessimism and desperation. They dare to dream and create with zeal and imagination. Armed with passion for knowledge and emotion, they attempt to combine the precision of science with the elegance and resourcefulness of art. We thank them wholeheartedly for their contribution.
