One of the types of videos I really enjoy making right now are little vignettes of volunteers who serve at The Crossing. These short little pieces give a quick glance at who it is that helps make The Crossing happen each Sunday and shares a little bit about their heart for serving. They don’t take very long to produce and they play great on social media. Here’s one of my favorites.

You can’t go wrong when you have a guy like Dave who says stuff like “It makes my heart squishy to see everybody.”

#ForColumbia – Latest Project

My latest project just came out. I shot this along with 6 other photographers. Then taking their footage and stills I did a quick turnaround edit. #ForColumbia was a city wide service day that brought together many of the area churches to serve and show the love of Christ to Columbia.

Changed Lives – Latest Video Project

IMG_1256A couple of weeks back I shared on social media about a project I was working on for The Crossing where I work.

The video was produced to go along with a specific message for a Sunday service. Essentially, we planned to interview a bunch of people about how God and the Gospel is changing their lives. Then, once we had gathered all of the stories we’d edit it down in to one common story to share with the congregation.

IMG_1259We ended up interviewing about 20 people over four days. I had to tear down and reset up my background, lighting and cameras about three times. We gathered six hours of footage.

Turn around time was about a week, so there was not a lot of time to really refine the edit. But in the end, once it was all cut together we had to postpone the message for later date due to weather cancelations.

It finally showed last Sunday, so I’m happy to share it with you now. I’ve included a couple of shots from the shoot and the edit. The video is down below.

One last thing. Here’s a time-lapse of setting up for the interview.
