21st Century Training

When the Apostle Paul hit Ephesus and people came to Christ, Luke records Paul's efforts there.

Acts 19: 9 But when some became stubborn and continued in unbelief, speaking evil of the Way before the congregation, he withdrew from them and took the disciples with him, reasoning daily in the hall of Tyrannus.
10 This continued for two years, so that all the residents of Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.

In this short period of time everything was set into motion that multiple churches would be planted all across Asia Minor, setting the stage for Constantine to give the church an international setting in the fourth century. The key was the training he gave these men of potential.

The question is: What would and can it look like in a fast-paced society with many technological resources? Can we think outside the current parameters in order to expand our impact?

What is required to produce compelling videos?

Producing Videos - Part 3


This is a continuation of yesterday's blog.

7. Task breakdown

Having a checklist aids me in making sure that all aspects have been thought out - mainly this will keep me aware of the time yet to be allotted.

8. Overlays

Looking for an edgy feel to the piece, the overlays needed to be adjusted. For this piece movement and placement was key.

9. Final render

Now it was time to get the piece to press. This is the final result. In the next few months we will be using this piece to send to young adults as part of a follow-up campaign.

That is the workflow I presently use to produce videos.
