Bishop Scott Jones and his son Arthur teamed up to write the book ASK: Faith Questions in a Skeptical Age. The United Methodist Publishing House published the book and gave us the opportunity to produce an eight-episode series that would accompany the book and the Bible study.
We took over Urban Grub, a hip little restaurant in Nashville, and captured conversations between five Methodist pastors from across the country for each of the eight topics. The conversations needed to be fueled and engaging, so we created a device: the box.
We built a one-of-a-kind wooden box and filled it with items that would prompt and direct the flow of conversation. In the end, the box became as much a character of the series as anything; and together with UMPH, we made a handsome product.
