Last semester our graduate class produced a film called Victory in Christ, telling the stories of Christian refugees that have fled from the persecution in Iraq. Our goal was to find the stories of Christians who have a victorious testimony that have come from hard tragedy but are standing strong, the intent is to be a voice of encouragement to the Church, to trust God in the midst of trials.
Christians are facing massive persecution all across the middle east, may have lost everything fleeing from Da-ash (ISIS) and other forces hostile to their faith. Please share this film and spread the word!
We also produced a few other vignettes in the campaign and a promo video to help the work Brother Andrew White is doing helping the refugees we interviewed.
On a rainy Thursday evening, the Kings School of Media held its second annual Mini Oscar Awards ceremony and Purim Party.
It was preceded by a cocktail party with delectable hors d’oeuvres and light beverages provided by our own Cafe Forte.
The Jerusalem Post wrote up a great article about the event, you can check it out by clicking here.
The entrance to the pavilion was decked out with a red carpet, a photo booth and a camera on a dolly track that streaming live to the guests as you walked in. As it was Purim, almost everyone was wearing amazing costumes and masquerade masks and even a luchador! Check out the pictures below!

Congratulations to Yasmine for winning the Kings School of Media marketing Contest and a brand new IPad Mini!! As a school we were commissioned by a Local Hotel (formerly Beit Yehuda Hotel) to come up with new branding their facility as they were remodeling from 2 star to 4.5 star rating. The owner of the Hotel awarded a IPad Mini for the student with the best name. The competition was really tough, they went up against some of the top marketing firms in Israel! In the end our students produced a ton of really good Hotel Brands to pick from. Congrats on the win Yasmine!
Check out the promo we did earlier this year for their hotel!
And here’s a look at the Behind the Scenes fun!
We would like to share with you the last class project summer of 2012 for the Israeli pro-life organization, Be’ad Chaim. Our students were commissioned to produce a international promo and 2 30 sec Commercials to air on Israeli TV. Our class dug in and studied into the culture and produced some incredibly powerful ads. The situation with Abortion is extremely grim in Israel, pray that these ads along with the work of Be’ad Chaim can save lives!
Here’s one of the ads we produced as a 30sec commercial to air on Israeli TV.
Kings School of Media hosted their first, annual Oscars night! Both KSM students and members of The King of Kings Young adults group worked together to create and present short films based on scripture. Our teams did an incredible job with no budget and only 3 weeks to produce the films from concept to completion! The evening fell in conjunction with Purim, so participants and guests were invited to dress up and enjoy the show. We began with dinner, while guests took photos in the photo booth and mingled while watching the 2013 Oscars playing in the background. After dinner, the crowd gathered to watch the films and the award ceremony, where winners received Mini Oscar awards. We then awarded the film teams with Best picture, Best cinematography and other award categories.

Kings School of Media presents the story of Avishai Pinchas, a man whose faith in G-d lead him to take extreme measures and do what was humanly foolish to completely a heavenly calling. Recognized in the 168 Film Festival in LA as Best Short Documentary, Desert Ark is a story of how one man heard the voice of G-d and acted on it to impact the lives of 8 refugee families fleeing for their lives from Sudan and Egypt. The film was shot, edited, and mastered here in Israel.
At Kings School of Media, the 3rd semester students are currently editing a commercial for a hotel located in Jerusalem near the Biblical Zoo called Beit Yehuda, which they filmed last week. The owner of this particular hotel has been a huge supporter of King of Kings for a long time now and we really just wanted to bless him. We were so excited to be able to kick the year off right away with a project like this! The goal of this project was to make a commercial for this hotel that stood out from the rest of the plain commercials that we see out there – and the students rose to the task! The students spent three days out filming for this commercial, getting some AMAZING footage and they were definitely having fun while doing it. We are 100% sure that this commercial is going to be one […]
We couldn’t be prouder of our students that graduated on June 15th 2012. What amazing kids! Peter Friedlander, David Sekiguchi, Viivi Nuoraho and Wael Khoury are some of the most passionate and hardworking people we know and we can’t wait to see what God has in store for their lives! It has been an adventure, but we all have to say goodbye at some point, right? They will definitely be missed.
