Can you share your experience about creating videos and graphics for your church or ministry?

I have not come across many churches in the CRC creating original multi-media material. Maybe I just haven't come in contact with churches doing it yet. Is there anyone involved in creating videos and graphics for their churches (or even for other ministries outside our churches)? I would love to hear what you do and begin the conversation. Our church recently purchased the Adobe Creative Suite which has allowed us to really expand artistically and I love seeing what other churches are doing. After reading through some of the threads, I saw a suggestion to create a location on the web for showcasing work and sharing ideas which is an excellent idea and a way to begin conversations that will hopefully lead to lasting connections, but I'm sure this is a ways off. Our church began discussions on having an event hosted at our church to have an art/media showcase that would bring people together, but as the economy struggled, we thought it wasn't the time.

Hi everyone. We are a Christian Reformed ministry in Port St. Lucie, FL and have created www.sunchurch.tv. We are in the process of creating videos on a wide variety of topics. We not only host them on our site but also are posting them to youtube. Check it out and pass the news!
www.sunchurch.tv Also, if you are aware of some great videos, let us know and we will feature them in our partner video section.
I create multimedia presentations for the Office of Social Justice - we use a lot of cool freebie web tools that don't take a lot of time or skill, but give great results.
Two of my favorites are prezi.com, an online presentation editor, and animoto.com, which creates mashups of photos, video, and music.
Here's an example: http://www.crcna.org/pages/osj_presentation.cfm
