Enjoy this vlog of the 9th Commandment for Artists and Creative Professionals in our Ten Commandments for Artists series.
The grim and grit of society are an essential part of many movies, video games, and even works of fine art in museums. We see a world of deceit, lying and betrayal in stories every day, and if you are trying to reach an audience who has encountered devastating evil, – sugar coating the situation will only seem fake. We may need to have a level of grit and tension in our work in order to resonate with our audience, but we need to remember the beautiful society God was pointing his people to when he gave them the 9th commandment. Discover how to portray the tension without losing focus.
