Just Have Fun With it!

cv2009_03

Excerpt from my new CVMag article: Many of us in Christian Video ministry in churches across the country don’t have formal training in all of the areas that we work in. Much of our learning comes “on the job” and through reading of publications (such as CVmag). I’m reminded of my kids when they start a new sport – soccer for instance. I know that they are not going to be like the great Pelé. They are just starting out. It’s ridiculous to make such an assumption! So what do we tell them? “Just go on out there and HAVE FUN WITH IT.” And they do…most of the time.

Bundles are Better

Everything comes in bundles now a days.  Phone/ Cable/ Internet bundled.   Buy this cheese and get chips bundled with it.  Well I have some bundles too.

Since “Lukewarm Hymns CD Info” was just released I thought that I would bundle it together with its counterpart “Worship 1/2 CD Info”.  By themselves they are $15 a piece.  Together they are $25 for a savings of $5.  $5 could be a latte at Starbucks, two at McDonalds, or 10-15 at home.  In this economy bundles are better.

A Worthy Investment
By Gregory Fish

For a long time now, I have wanted to upgrade some equipment. I wanted a video camera that had a better picture, and that had more options, etc. Why? For one reason, I wanted to be able to shoot some stock footage, and could not do it with a consumer camera. However, another reason is that I have a passion to give God the best I can possibly give Him. I am my own worst critic. And for a long time, I haven’t been pleased enough with the quality of my own productions. It’s something that I always strive to improve. Improvement comes mostly from a production standpoint, how well crafted the concepts are and whatnot. Improvement is also dependent on equipment, both hardware and software. So, I’ve been saving up for a while, and I finally spent some money. I believe it to be a very worthy investment. Let me tell you about what I bought.

My Andy Griffith Remixes

February 25, 2009 1 comment

An easy effective way to make video illustrations for sermons.  Take clips that are in the public domain and edit them for time and content.  There is a lot more involved than slapping a title and a verse to it. Many times it has to be edited down to be a short clip that pastors can use without eating all of their time. It involves watching the episodes (which is fun) and seeing what might work and the finding a scripture that would be pertinent.

This video did pretty well for Valentine’s Day.  I was pleasantly surprised.  It’s good for any message on relationships.

This one is straight forward and could be very effective on a message on temptation.

A great scene about a spoiled kid and the importance of discipline.  Full version includes Opie trying out some of his tactics.
