The Nativity Factor ran for five years up until 2015. The project aimed to remind everyone that Christmas is a holiday when Christians mark the birth of Jesus Christ. Using the power of online video to deliver the true meaning of Christmas, the Nativity Factor asked budding filmmakers to create their version of the Nativity story. There is more information on the Nativity Factor website www.nativityfactor.com.
This project produced a series of videos based on the hip-hop Gospel of Luke, written and performed by beatboxer Rev. Gavin Tyte and friends. The videos are in the style of the Beat Box Nativity which was a winner of the Nativity Factor 2011. The Beatbox Gospel of Luke communicates the bible in a new and innovative way and will make an excellent resource for schools, youth clubs, churches and prisons.
