Video Production for Ministry
If you’re in ministry, no matter what your job description was a few weeks ago, now you’re probably a video producer.
As an entertainer, I work a lot with video. I prefer to work with professionals in the field when possible, but I also do a lot of my own video work. I thought I’d share some basic info for those who are just getting started.
Basic Editing in Windows
Windows 10 includes some really basic video tools. If you’re going to be doing much with video, you’ll probably want more powerful tools sooner or later. However, this is a quick and easy way to get stared with what you already have. (Well, unless you’re a Mac person. For Mac, you probably want to look into iMovie, but I can’t really help with that.)
Full-Featured Video Editing Software
Full-featured video editing software is much more powerful, but does have a bit more of a learning curve. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be expensive. A free option is HitFilm Express. (There are paid versions and add-ons, but Hit Film express itself is free.)
This video will show you the minimum you need to know to get started in HitFilm Express.
Improving Your Live Videos
Pretty much every church is now live streaming. This video will show you some things that are possible, to hopefully get your creative juices flowing.
The free software I mention (and use) in the video is Open Broadcaster Software Studio.
I hope things are going as well as possible in this new reality. If there is anything I can do to help, let me know!
