Fr. Barron has been filming his video commentaries for years, but what happens behind the scenes? Take a sneak peak behind the filming of his most recent video on C.S. Lewis. Below you’ll find photos and videos showing how Father prepares and films each week.

Fr. Barron begins each commentary by writing out an article on the topic. Then he reviews the article before filming.
