This project was shot over the course of a few days in Lake Charles, Louisiana with the mission of getting people to go on a Crisis Response mission trip. It was made to be played in our mission focus month of February. Jon Peake conceptualized the project, shot it, and edited it. Notice the drone shot going through the ladder rack of the truck, how you see it was how it was shot. Gear Used: Sony a7iii caged with diety shotgun Zoom h5n sennheiser lav. rode go Dji Mini2
This video was created for our worship opening for Easter 2020. We were in lockdown and no one was coming to worship. It was shot with a Cannon T6 and edited in Premier. Nothing special.
This was our video for Easter 2022 service. We made this to support the sermon for our senior pastor’s vision for Easter Sunday. With a crew of only 2 and one actress, we set across the country to bring the film to life. We faced snow, desert, and mountains to get the shots we needed. We knew we wanted a beautiful, unique look and lens character to further the emotional impact of the story. This was shot with an Arri Alexa Mini and Kowa Prominar Anamorphic lenses to fully capture the beauty and space of where we were located. Our…
In the hight of the pandemic, members of Doha Fellowship, Christian Church in Doha, Qatar filmed themselves from their homes worshiping together with Matt Redman’s 10,000 Reasons. Meetings in person were not allowed. Each family submitted their video singing onto the same track using whatever camera they had, mainly their phones, and Church’s video & audio team assembled the final.
I was contacted by GateCity because they wanted to put a spotlight on the Night Watch again. In past years, emphasis on the importance of the ministry had dwindled, and they wanted to stoke the fire in people’s hearts to give their nights to the Lord. To call the audience to the ministry would require us to bring them into the Night Watch, give them a taste for what it’s like, and answer the burning question: Why would anyone ever do this? The answer to that question pointed to the reality of Jesus and our need to abide in Him.…
This video was for our online-only service on Dec 26th. The music portions were all tracked at different times in a makeshift studio space we set up in an office. Recording audio in the film location (a large lobby) would not have yielded useable audio. The tracks were all mixed down by a volunteer inside the church using protocols and waves plug-ins.
Tim Babler (worship director) wrote the script. Anthony Catalano developed the visual presentation. We had several people record the reading and we selected the one that fit the tone the best (Ben Workentine, pastor).
Our lead pastor lost his father in the days leading up to Christmas. He wanted to deliver a special devotional for those also experiencing loss. Sometimes its important to just set up a shot and let the speaker deliver his message and be out of their way.
This is a very difficult video to produce based on the subject matter. I wanted the subject to be comfortable, but I also wanted to make sure the video looked perfect. I spent an extended period of time setting up the shot, we played around with various positions and angles and backdrops before finding the perfect solution. I had to fight the sun coming in through the windows and we were constantly losing light.
