#FallingPlates video shares the good news effectively
Over Easter 2013, the team who produced the Falling Plates video encouraged people around the world to share it widely. They also make suggestions for sharing it as a conversation starter.
Before Easter 2013, 400,000 people had already viewed Falling Plates on YouTube. Over the Easter period, there were a further 200,000 views! The team report here on the impact.
The film captures the main theme from the Bible in images and concepts that resonate with 21st-century audiences.
#FallingPlates portrays in four minutes the universal themes of life, lost love, death, pain and faith in a God who interrupts our lives to show his love.
Executive Producer Howard Crutsinger blends stunning still photography from modern life with special video effects to illustrate the experience of so many.
Life begins happy and content as it was created by God to be. But, it’s shattered in pain leaving men and women broken, stained and burned. Into that pain, God the creator, who desires a true relationship with each person, proves his love to restore individuals and humanity.
#FallingPlates is a joint production from Cru and Strong Films. Strong Films creates short films that powerfully inspire and start conversations. Cru (also known as Campus Crusade for Christ in the United States) is an interdenominational organization committed to giving people the opportunity to respond to God’s offer of love and forgiveness.

Falling Plates in other languages
Different language subtitles have also been made and the team encourage others to do this.
Howard Crutsinger says, “I created a new online spreadsheet at
It contains links to all of the current Closed Captions. The links force the closed-caption subtitles for the specific language. For example, if you want to share #FallingPlates on Facebook and you want to force the closed captions to play in Portuguese, then you’d paste it’s specific Portuguese link:
Each language has separate links provided in the spreadsheet.”
