LITTLE-IMAGE BEARERS: AIMING FOR THE MARK cover image
I enjoyed Little-Image Bearers: Aiming for the Mark. It has a good message which is clear throughout the story and reinforced many times. I also enjoyed the fun archery theme; it a clever way to illustrate how we need targets in our life. It's a combination of life action and puppetry, which is fun for the younger crowd. You might want to know that it does have a Christian message, which is emphasized at the end.

This episode teaches us about having targets or goals in life. The host plays a game shooting rubber bands at a target and then visits an archer friend who teaches Caleb how to shoot and more. This story is easy to follow and holds your interest.

The camera work is well done, as is the audio. I particularly enjoyed the puppets and the transitions between the puppet world and the real world are fun and enhance the story. The film begins in a room in the host's home. When we venture into the puppet world, the background is of a house exterior and trees. This background is rather dark and uninspired. Then, we move to the archery range which is outdoors. Caleb Phillips is not only the writer and director; he also stars in the film as its host. Caleb has a pleasant personality; he talks very slowly and deliberately. It's easy to understand him so, between his presentation and the script; this makes its point in a way that young children can understand. My favorite part of the film is when it goes into a world of puppets.

The message of this short film is that you want to have targets in life because they keep you on track and give you goals to look forward to. It reminded me that, especially now in these crazy times, we need to have things to look forward to and take time to better ourselves. It is important for you to know that there is a religious message at the end that is Christian. Caleb reads from the Bible and paraphrases the Biblical quote in words that emphasize the message of this film.

I give this film 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 4 to 12. Reviewed by Allison B, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Adult Juror.

Little Image-Bearers is a children's show designed for children ages 2-10. Each episode introduces a unique item to explore, a simple puppet pretend story, and a fun "try it yourself" project, all pointing towards a biblical concept discussed at the end. In this episode we explore the truth of what sin means. We play a game shooting rubber bands at a target. We go visit an archer friend. In puppet pretend Bobo has a new ball he wants to throw around (but at what?).
