This video was a testimony that we played during our Easter service in 2021. This was shot on a Blackmagic Pocket cinema 4K camera in one of the classrooms of our building. To get the film look, I hazed the room and used a source four par light as backlight. Another technique I used was having black bars crawl in on the top and bottom of the frame to give the video a cinema look and also help draw the audience into the story. One challenge I encountered was keeping the backlight from falling onto the subject and I used multiple sandbags to anchor the light stand.
