This was a fun narrative project we did a few years back for our Christmas Eve Services. We spent months planning it out and it is personally my favorite project I have ever done as it helped my build my skills as an aspiring filmmaker. We shot this over the course of 3 weekends on location at church members farm. At the time we did not have much equipment so we used a Sony FS100 Camera to shoot on and used some AKG mics back at the church for the VoiceOver recordings. The biggest challenges presented was working with kids from our children’s ministry. It is harder to direct children but with the help of our “Kids Life” Teachers and their parents, we were able to create this fun video that we all had fun shooting. It was also winter here in Texas so shooting outside on location in the Winter presented some challenges but luckily it was nice and warm the weekends we shot.
