In a world of arrivals & departures...
“Gate 25” was the first cinematic collabboration between The Summit Church and SkyGate Studios. The film was written and produced as part of The Summit Church’s 2013 Christmas production.
Set in an airport terminal, the context of how much time we each have on this earth is pulled into focus. The many storylines of our characters weave together as the relationship between strangers and Christmas is explored.
A little extra magic!
The unique challenges of “Gate 25” were many, but one of the biggest was transforming a lobby into a believable airport terminal. Contempory chairs were orderd and a ticket counter for the flight attendants went into construction. Feaux walls were built to hide doorways and fitted with built-in monitors for displaying flight information.
In addition to casting eight leads, “Gate 25” had to depict a bustling airport on Christmas Eve. On average only 10-15 extras were available for the shoots. “Gate 25” required creative background action to make ten poeple feel like a hundred!
