I Heard the Bells

December 1944. Haunted by the lyrics, “peace on earth good will to men,” and drowned out by the horrors of the second world war, a homesick soldier in the besieged city of Bastogne shares his thoughts with his wife in a letter seconds before the Germans attack his position and his life is forever changed.

Director Biography - Jeremiah Morrison

Jeremiah Morrison is a filmmaker and director based in Northern Virginia. After getting interested in film through making clunky stop motion animations with his brothers, he got into the wedding video business for several years, and then began working at Distant Moon as an editor. His brother Jonathan had the idea for "I Heard the Bells" in 2020, and the three Morrison Brothers decided it was a story that needed to be told. Armed with a firm resolve to create something truly cinematic and unique with stop motion, the three brothers set out to create the film, and three years later the film was completed after much blood, sweat, and tears. Jeremiah and his brothers, Daniel and Jonathan, continue to work towards creating beautiful, heart-felt films that will impact the next generation for good.
