Motion Graphics Guru Bjorn Amundsen on Crossing the 180

Today we continue our “Faith in Filmmaking” series with Bjorn Amundsen, a director, photographer and motion designer who works for Willow Creek Community Church, one of the largest churches in America. Bjorn is a man of many talents and although I peg him as a motion designer here, he’s making a transition to be more of a traditional filmmaker and photographer. But, if you have ever wondered about what it’s like to be a motion graphics designer, this is the interview for you!  Also Bjorn shares his feelings about today’s “Christian” movies and why he dislikes them.

Many thanks to my podcast co-producer, Dan Rollins. Dan is a terrific filmmaker in his own right, an audio guru, and even a voiceover talent. Check him out at

Each week we will also give away a free song from Triple Scoop Music (a $60 value). All you have to do is tweet one of these two lines…

Hey @rondawson, the featured @triplscoopmusic artist this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME


Hey @rondawson, the featured @triplscoopmusic song this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME

Replace NAME with the name of the artist or the song. It doesn’t have to be the artist’s Twitter name, but if you DO find and include their Twitter handle, I’ll enter you twice! You have to enter the tweet exactly like this so that I know you’ve done it and because there’s no “e” in Triple Scoop Music’s twitter handle. Your best bet is to copy and paste. Do this throughout the week and on next week’s show I’ll announce the winner. You can do this every week until further notice.

Triple Scoop Music is also offering a discount on your next purchase. You gotta listen to the episode to find out the code.
