Small Groups video for The Orchard

My wife is always wanting to be helpful. She wants me to be “successful” too. So sometimes she realizes I need a little bit of a boost to get rolling. So we talked about different ideas for a video to make for the church about small groups. But she went ahead and and started calling people setting up interviews to get feedback about why people at The Orchard here in Oxford, MS enjoy small groups.

She kept telling me she was “helping me” when really she was nudging me to help myself. But I appreciate her a ton for it. It turned out to be fun and makes me ready to do the next one…what ever it happens to be. But with a few interview appointments spread out over a few days and some friends in town over the weekend too, I pushed back the editing of the video til last night. Like really got started at about 11:30pm. And then the re-edits and tweaks that no one else would probably notice kept me going back over it. So I finished around 3am [aided by the fact this was my first time to use iMovie08] so we could show it in church today. But I’m all good.

Anyhow, here it is. It’s not perfect. But it was fun and a learning experience. I hope for more to come soon. Tell me what you think in the comment.

What do you do after studying?

I’ve been looking around at some alternatives to YouTube. YouTube is the most popular video sharing site out there. That’s more than obvious. But there are better, but less used, ones out there. Two that really catch my eye are Vimeo and Viddler. One of the things that Vimeo is known for are their lipdubs. That’s where someone lipsyncs to a song. Then relays the audio over it for a much fuller sound.

I found one that is HUGE. It’s one big, continuous shot. It is filmed at a German university. It is all in the same class building. And has tons of students and a few professors in it. It’s worth a watch for sure. Enjoy!
