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...

Does a church need to have a movie license?

Our smallish church gave up our movie license recently b/c the new pastor doesn't use movie clips in his sermons. However, the Missions Planning Team just decided to host movie nights (3 in total) and can't justify spending $475 per year or $150 per movie. Any suggestions without scrapping the movies all together?

What resources are available for training church tech team members?

Wondering how you all train your potential tech team members. Sound, projection, lighting etc. Do you have someone in your church who is proficient in each department to teach others or are volunteers handed the keys and told to make it up as they go? I'm interested in making sure that our incoming techies have a good understanding before they are put incharge, are there any good resources out there for training in these areas? Doug

Who can recommend a resource to help optimize a church video projection system?

Our worship center is rather short from front-to-back and the screen which was initially installed (in the center) covers the cross which is behind the pulpit. In addition, there is a clear-story above the front of the room so we have ambient light conditions to confront. I'm researching the components for a dual screen/projector setup to solve these issues. Between screen gain ratings and projector brightness ratings it gets pretty confusing. Then there are references to "calibrating" projectors to the kind of screen you have. I've yet to find any impartial resources about how it all fits...

Has the use of projection technology helped or hindered your worship experience?

There is some discussion in our church about projecting the words to songs or scripture verses on the large overhead screen above the pulpit. There are some who say this helps engage the congregation, and other who feel that it's intrusive, distracting, and disconnects us from our hymnals and bibles. How does your congregation use projection technology, and how has that helped or hindered your worship experience?

Training Tools for Sound Techs?

Does anyone have a regular regimen of training for your sound technicians or other technology operators? If so, how often do you train and what sources do you use?

Training for Sound Technology

Check out this helpful sound technology training video. After all, some of the most important people in the sanctuary or worship center are those operating the sound and video technology!

Mixing Organ Into the Sound System

In the process of renovating our sanctuary and while we intend to remain an organ-led congregation for the near future, we are seeking advice on how to mic our classic 1986 Allen Organ into live stream and recordings.

Thoughts on Easy Worship?

I would like to find a program to assist our visual team with preparations for Sunday services. What are people's thoughts on Easy Worship? Is there another program you'd suggest?
