What exactly do we do? OBS is a think tank of young Video Missionaries rewriting the art of storytelling with film in the global Catholic Church. The blending of Catholicism and Web 2.0 film tactics is our passion. We come together because we love truth, and telling stories rooted within absolute Truth.
We are a multidisciplinary global team, sharing creativity, knowledge, and conviction for the marriage of technology and encounter with the everlasting here on earth. Bottom line, film is the future in the online global culture wars, and our film family is ready for the front lines of this battle.
Mission Statement: “Inspire devotion to Jesus Christ, by sharing Catholics’ personal stories on the ‘digital continent’ that are rooted in fidelity to the Magisterium of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, through contemporary communication mediums.”
This mission focuses on 3 steps:
1. Attract everyday Internet users to OBS with engaging stories and captivating content
2. Cultivate reflection on the stories with questions, comments, forums, and live chats
3. Propose options to get involved by sharing authentic Catholic resources that are faithful to the Magisterium
On Jan. 3, 2010, a pilgrimage was begun to find God’s work and voice in the world through the ‘One Billion Catholic Stories.’ Equipped with a bike, video camera, and call, Seth DeMoor departed from Orlando, Florida, and traveled for three months back to Colorado, sharing along the way, authentic Catholic stories on the “digital continent”. The bike ride comprised 2,400 miles of pedaling, seven states, thirteen flat tires, and three hundred amazing stories from Catholics who had the courage to answer the call of Pope Benedict XVI. The lesson learned from the pilgrimage, the Catholic faith is not going away. Why? Her devout defenders in the modern world are not living of the world, but for Jesus Christ as proven through these ‘one billion Catholic stories!’
