In God’s Image: Subcreators in a Created World
Below are interview questions I sent to Stew Redwine, founder and head of
Please join me in getting to know Stew Redwine a bit better.
1. Define yourself in one word (Disciple, Christian, American, Man, etc.)
2. Why do you choose that term?
My wife, daughters, parents, siblings, extended family, friends, and Creator love me.
Stew Redwine Productions exists to help businesses communicate with video online, with videos that increase clarity and conversions.
4. What leads you to create film media? Was it due to a specific event or was it a more general decision about what you wanted to do in life?
More nurture than nature. I was lucky enough to be born in the era I was born, where the camera is readily available, in the country I was born in, where I have the freedom to pursue my dreams, and to the parents I was born to, who provided a lifestyle, education, and experience conducive to pursuing a career in communication.
5. How has your work required you to sacrifice?
In the spirit of the last question, living where I do, in the time I do, I have not had to sacrifice and I will never be grateful enough to those who sacrificed everything so that I could enjoy the opportunities I do. The only thing I would consider a sacrifice are my excuses, they must be sacrificed everyday.
In filmmaking, to love my audience, putting their emotional experience first and sharing with them some aspect of what it means to be alive. AS Krystoff Kieslowski puts it, to describe the toothache.
With Stew Redwine Productions, to equip businesses with web videos that help increase clarity for visitors to their site and convert those visitors into customers.
7. What is your largest hope for those toward whom your work is directed?
In my art, that they would feel something and share what they saw with someone else. In my business, more customers for my clients.
8. What are two key ways in which your work affects others today?
First of all, I take people’s money to produce work for them. That is a huge responsibility. I make them poorer to produce a video that will make them richer. If it doesn’t, I’ve failed.
Secondly, the work I produce takes up people’s time, which is invaluable. I don’t want to waste the audience’s time.
I keep working, He keeps providing, and in the process I get to meet amazing people.
10. How can readers learn more about what you do?
