>Well made. Christian artists shouldn't get slack in the abilities department, because the message is so important. When Christians make music, it should be the BEST music. When Christians make a movie, it should be VERY well made. Whatever the medium, we should be putting out the best quality. The work will be appealing and memorable. The song will replay in people's mind because it sounds neat, people will tell their friends about the movie because it was so riveting.
>Intelligent. I could quickly get out of my league on this one, but you gotta try, aim that way and all. Integral to a project well made is that intelligent execution be obvious to those who examine the work. It needs to challenge and compliment the audience's intellect. The adversary has made great effort to present Christians as backwoods simpletons. I'm sure I've helped him out a time or two. But as liberals lose control of the media, a greater audience will be reached by Christians, and stereotypes can be diminished.
>Fun and joy. I once commented on another blog, something about how an artist should bring beauty even in dire circumstances, like a flower persevering in a bleak urban setting. Easier said than done. Lately I've met my dark concrete alley. Nonetheless, we are allowed to have fun, part of that is innovation. Try new stuff. Experiment! It's a blast, and it will put you at the front of you field. Tradition can be such a shackle, maybe casket is the word. There has been discussion regarding drawing attention to oneself, I can in no way dismiss the subject as unimportant. However, I quickly counter that tradition is the false assurance that many die in, far more dangerous that unusual graphics. Wait, wasn't I talking about fun? Yeah, so I suppose it wouldn't hurt for people to see us having fun...might even vanish another stereotype.
