The Orthodox path and mass media

It would be foolish to think all the answers to understanding how we can work in the media industry as Orthodox Christians can be answered in a humble blog.

One of the many beautiful things about Orthodoxy is the continuous learning and relearning of God's teachings. As a regular commuter I have found it very rewarding listening to audio lectures downloaded off the Internet from Orthodox websites. The following link contains some excellent lectures, especially the impact of mass media:

http://holycrossonline.org/our_parish/media/ (click on 'Practising true worship in a pop culture world')

The lectures include: Orthodoxy and the 'Di Vinci Code', the Internet (Second Life, MySpace etc), Hollywood and the influence of advertising in mass media.

It was an extremely rewarding experience - highly recommended.

Need help?
If you're looking for fellow orthodox filmmakers and/or artists to work with on upcoming projects drop a line to chrisav1984@gmail.com with a short advert (no more than 50 words) explaining what you are looking for and relevant contact details.
