Many thanks to Collide Distribution for providing this product/product information for review. Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post. What I am reviewing is Colors of Character.
I received a digital copy of Colors of Character, a documentary, for this review which tells the story of Steve Skipper.
Fig Tree Media Group put together this biography on the life and times of Steve Skipper. Mr. Skipper played an active role in the creation of this video. As we go through his life we also learn a lot about the civil rights movement. Play time is 1 hr and 16 minutes. This video was sent through vimeo. Mr. Skipper’s faith in God was evident throughout. I love hearing stories of faith… oh how God draws a person out of a life ill-conceived and shows them a different path. It’s so good you know? What I enjoyed the most about this documentary is the story of faith lived.
Steve Skipper is not only an artist, but he also wrote a book called Dream On: A Journey to Deliverance. He lived a rough life, became part of a gang, faced a lot of discouragement, and then he found the Lord. I don’t want to give away too much of the story as it was brand new to me. It might be brand new to you as well. You can see his art work at the Steve Skipper Gallery.
You’ll learn his story from life as part of a gang, through to successful artist. He credits it all to God. Such a solid story with a variety of people adding in bits. Frequently we learned more of the civil rights movement.
To get a glimpse on what this movie is like I invite you to view the trailer
Should you get Colors of Character?
Colors of Character I found to be very interesting. I ran into some problems though. I first tried to play it on my tablet but the sound would keep playing but the video part would simply stop. Only by stopping, refreshing etc, could I get the video to play. Now that said, it played perfectly on my laptop. My tablet plays everything else faultlessly so I’m not sure why there was an issue with Colors of Character.
Anyways, I’m glad it worked well on my laptop. I’m not sure that it’s a story children would like, but I could easily see adults and teens enjoying it. Might provide for some interesting discussions. Dove.org approved for ages 12 & up!
