On Sunday night, we went to my parents' house for Sunday dinner. That night, our Church leaders and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir presented a Christmas devotional which was broadcasted on BYU TV. Pres. Eyring announced the debut of some of the small clips Dill filmed in Utah a few months ago (you know, with his big ol' beard). Of course, at this announcement we all freaked out (read: the girls squealed) and gathered closely around the television to see if we could spot him.
The videos are gorgeous. They cast the roles perfectly. The CG and the natural scenery look amazing.
Finally, the video of the three wise men seeking Jesus appeared on the screen. We waited anxiously -- this was one of the scenes Dill was in! Sure enough, as the wise men bowed to present their gifts to the toddler Jesus, there was Dill.
Can you spot him in the crowd?
How about now?
So anyway, Dill's a star! Ok so not really. But hey, he wasn't expecting to make it on film at all so this is more than we bargained for. And even if it's only for three seconds, he's immortalized in a church film forever. How cool is that?
See the rest of the stunning videos here (more are on the way). See if you can spot Dill in motion.
