New Powerman Videos!

Good news citizens!

I am starting to upload the new Powerman series to YouTube.  I will start posting them here over time, but you can go directly to the Powerman & Mosquitoboy YouTube page to see them earlier.  Right now, only the first half of Deceptor's Revenge episode 1 is online, but it is still almost 10 minutes long.  The entire video is over an hour.

Although we originally made these for kids, we made them so that we would enjoy them as well.  There is a lot of superhero action in the videos, but they also have a point.  Because I'm splitting them up into 10 segments, you won't notice a direct 'message' in each of the clips.  To get a taste for that, watch especially for part 2, 6, and 10.  In other places it is more subtle.  If you appreciate John Piper or John Bunyan, you might especially appreciate the conclusion.  I've heard from a lot of parents who say that their kids are addicted to the DVDs!  We're really glad when we get to hear that.  I hope that we might have a way to make the DVDs more widely available in the future.

Hey, if you can, please click "like" on the videos or "favorite" them. Help me get the word out!

Note: On the YouTube account name, there is no "and" in between Powerman & Mosquitoboy.  YouTube only lets usernames be so long.  The older series, "in Space" is hosted on a different YouTube account.  I've created a new one for this new series.  Although the series is 5 episodes I will split each of them in half because of YouTube's time restrictions.  I will title them as 1-10 just to keep it simple.

Powerman and Mosquitoboy started in 2005 as part of a kid's program we wrote for our church's Vacation Bible School. We did a Superhero themed VBS and each episode corresponded with the teaching theme for the day. The kids loved it and we returned next year with Powerman and Mosquitoboy in Space. After a two year break Powerman and Mosquitoboy returned--with better costumes and HD cameras--for Powerman and Mosquitoboy: Deceptor's Revenge. Deceptor's Revenge left a lot of unanswered questions, especially if you saw the end of the speacial edition, so it is likely that we haven't seen the last of Powerman and Mosquitoboy.

After the second season, we decided to make copies of the DVD and give them away at our church. We've probably gave away several hundred copies of the second season DVD over the next two years as families took them for themselves and for friends. We've heard stories of people using them in children's ministry in other states and even other countries.

Part of our philosophy was to aim the videos at an older elementary age boy. We figured that if we could make something that appealed to that target, the other kids would like it as well. We know that we can't compete with Hollywood for special effects, but humor, action and imagination is something that doesn't take a huge budget. It's been really cool for us to hear stories of how much kids enjoy these, even those without church background. It really motivates us to make more of these, even though it is a crazy amount of work.

So while these videos were primality for our church's outreach, it would be great to see them used in other ways as well. If you have questions or ideas, feel free to let me know!
