Sojourner Films is my non profit ministry that has a mandate to capture stories and testimonies that advance the kingdom of God.

God spoke to me one morning and told me to go to the Asbury Revival and capture the story of what He was doing there. I showed up without knowing anyone and was spirit led in capturing the elements of this documentary.

My primary pieces of gear were a Canon C70 camera with a Sennheiser MKH8060 shotgun. Secondary pieces of equipment were a Manfrotto monopod, Sennheiser wireless kit and a Sennheiser MKE II lavalier. I used 2 lenses – Canon RF 70-200 and Canon RF 15-35. I also used a DJI Mavic 2 Pro for the aeriels.

Some of the challenges from this, especially as a one man operation, was the high winds and downpouring of rain. Luckily my camera is weather sealed, but still used a lens hood to protect the lens. To capture audio, i put the lav on the inside of the shirt because of the high winds, and this makes the shirt act as a natural wind filter to protect the audio. God provided amazing lighting outside so I give him that credit! Most of my shots were handheld with the C70, utilizing high framerates, lens stabilization and bracing techniques to smooth out my shots.
