Moses Comes Alive

In the book of Exodus, the manna is given to feed Moses and his followers.

We had to have this iconic doorpost scene as it represents an important command that God gave.

It was not an easy task to choreograph this scene. We had 2 days but needed to match the sun time and shadow casting which was quickly changing, in addition to the many hours necessary to prepare the location. One of the hardest tasks was the lamb present in the scene. We had to find a company who sold a full lamb, keep it on ice between the filming days, then cook it with a torch because, due to the dry weather, we were not allowed to have fire on set. At the last minute we had to be creative and try to build a fire pit without real wood while also looking convincing enough. Everything revolved around the lamb which was an essential element we needed. Below you can see Moses with the lamb.

As always there were plenty of attacks on set from Christ's enemy. Many hours of filming were lost and we were not able to film other scenes on the green screen, utilizing this beautiful but expensive location ($12,000 per day). But as soon the priest came on set and blessed us with Mass, everything went back to normal. All of the extras started to pray a group of rosary, it definitely felt like Heaven.

The bronze serpent footage will be used prior to the Crucifixion. We see that Moses created a statue, which points to Christ, and God asked for it to be built to heal the snake bites of those that were sick.
