Obviously it's not going to the makeup department.

As you can clearly see, David Whitmer is sporting a bald cap. You can clearly see the line of demarcation between the actor's real skin and the bald cap.

Just wait until people see this fiasco in HD. This is purely amateur film-making. Embarrassing, but I can't wait to see the finished product!

That's how the actor looks, so I don't think he's wearing a bald cap...

Why didn't they finish the Book of Mormon movie?

Boy, that measly lantern hanging on the wall sure seems to be throwing off a ton of light. I mean, it's illuminating the *entire* barn! It's almost as if light is pouring from all sorts of unseen corners of the building! In fact, in that first image, you can even see it managing somehow to illuminate the guy in the right foreground's head! Is this meant to be a heavenly sort of glow, I wonder?

Because it sucked. Therefore, they couldn’t get additional funding to continue the series. It was amateur hour.

I don't mind if they skimp on most of the scenes. I want as much money as possible available to portray the Angel Moroni revealing the plates to the witnesses. The actual witness moment.

In case anyone has forgotten, this may be the supreme test of Interpreter's honesty in regards to their claims to orthodoxy over and above the new MI. If the portrayal of the witness moment leaves a subjective interpretation open, it's just a "vision", then they've failed to show their greater discipleship.

In order for the witness to be objective, Moroni must interact with his surroundings in some way. Perhaps a tree limb breaks away and falls as Moroni descends, or maybe a bug vaporizes as it strikes Moroni's protective shielding, or after Moroni ascends, the camera zooms in on a burned spot on the ground beneath where his feet had hovered. There's all kinds of options here, I'll leave it to the filmmakers to decide what works best, but if the scene can be viewed as a subjective experience, then the Interpreter, in my opinion, has fallen into apostasy.

Nope. It was peer reviewed, and therefore this is about total objective reality.

Good catch, otherwise there seemed to be a shading mismatch. Perhaps the lower nozzles of his face bronzer are a bit clogged.

It is a shame that Dr. Peterson cannot be there instead of being bogged down with a heavy teaching schedule. He could have drummed up support at the local Ontario wards.

How come they didn’t go with this guy? Seems like a natural fit for the comedy that is “The Witnesses”

It's a Jaredite lantern.

You're correct. The lighting is WAY off and will leave the viewer with the impression the filmmaker obviously wasn't interested in a realistic portrayal.

And, what's wrong with the make-up? There is a crystal clear demarcation line from white to dark brown on his forehead making it look like the actor is wearing a different colored bald cap.

So far, I'm loving this. I can't wait to see the finished product.
