Filmmaker Bio: This group of teenagers got together over the summer to learn about the YOUCAT. We also learned to use the media to spread the Gospel. We thought it would be a great idea to make a video on the YOUCAT and submit it for this contest.

    Well done! The beginning sketch motion picture was really cool! Not only was this film engaging, but it was educational and very practical. I think many of us can relate to the teen in search of prayer. I liked it very much!

    Very good! Loved the definition portion of prayer, especially the time-lapse prayer journal. Prayer is a gift! You’ve communicated that very well.

    Very well done. You have shown you know your subject matter (and not an easy one) and can present it effectively. I would like to use your film in a mission on prayer I am giving beginning next week at a Newman Center, if you do not mind. Thanks and God bless. -Fr. James
