Controversy has risen over the upcoming Noah, a movie about the Biblical account of a great flood that washed over the earth, leaving havoc in its wake, but also leading to a fresh start for mankind in the form of Noah and his family. The movie has been lauded by Christians for the emphasis that it places on an event so central to the Judaistic faith, while it has been critically acclaimed for its directing and cinematography. Here comes the dispute: the atheist director, Darren Aronofsky, has stating that the movie is the least biblical film ever, regardless of its roots in the Bible. Further, a reporter from the Telegraph has issued a statement saying that the word “God” is not spoken once in the movie, which takes much artistic license in the retelling of the classic tale. The main character, Noah, played out by Russell Crowe who has received numerous awards for his roles in films such as Les Miserables and Gladiator, has been converted more into a role of an environmentalist, rather than a man carrying out commands from God.
Regardless of the leanings of the film and its director, at Short Run Pro we saw within the movie (and the story that it comes from) a familiar process, a process that we undertake daily. In our comparison, you, the customer, with great excitement most assuredly, will be placed in a role similar to that of God in the account of the great flood. We at Short Run Pro will be likened unto Noah. Now we understand that the daily process at Short Run Pro lacks that cataclysmic ingredient found in the great flood, but bare with us as we outline the similarities.
In the time of the great flood God faced an issue to which a solution was to be applied. The solution incorporated the development, planning and execution of a product design - a product that is now call Noah’s Ark. God outlined the product specifications to Noah and placed it in his hands to build. Once, the design was worked out and the intentions communicated, Noah went about his work in building that Ark (boat).
Everyday Short Run Pro communicates with customers around the world developing and planning products that are meant to solve a problem, fit a need or fill a requirement that was previously unmet. While most of these products are not as involved as the construction of a massive ship like Noah’s Ark, these requests can be quite involved and require the expertise that Short Run Pro will provide to complete. Similar to Noah’s boat, we can build your parts to custom dimensions, as each piece’s specifications are worked through with our team of production specialists and engineers to produce the best fit for your needs.
Thankfully, unlike Noah’s Ark, our production services do not take years to complete. We have a lot of technological advances and cutting-edge equipment to add to our know-how, and all this allows us to complete your part requirement fast! Some estimate Noah took up to 75 years (nearly a century) to finish the ark. It takes us a fraction of that time to complete your product , and considering the human lifespan these days is much shorter than in Noah’s time, that’s probably a good thing!
Another similarity between our process and that of Noah’s Ark is found in the sourcing of materials for building the product. Noah used materials that he could source in his regional area. Each product made by Short Run Pro is made right here, in the USA. While we have much greater availability to outsource products and production services from foreign lands, we choose to keep our work within our country. This allows us to both ensure the quality of your products as well as create jobs for hardworking Americans. We don’t joke around when it comes to the quality of our work - each piece is made with high-grade steel by high grade metal working professionals.
Now, we’re not going to tell you what you should think about the movie. Go see the movie on March 28th and see for yourself what the story is about (also consider reading the account of Noah’s Ark in Genesis). One thing we will tell you is that, when it comes to custom parts, no one does it better than Short Run Pro. We’ll be with you every step of the way. From the moment that your requirement is communicated to the time the finished product is in your hand, we are there. Our customer service is top-notch, and when you receive the product that has been custom built for you, you’ll be glad you chose Short Run Pro.
