I recently completed a welcome video for Faith Baptist Arlington in Arlington, TN. A member of the church hired me personally to shoot and edit a brief overview video for the congregation that will be used on the church's website and as a DVD handout to visitors.
I spent one Sunday and one Wednesday evening up at the church, capturing the footage needed for the video. Members of the church volunteered their time after a Sunday morning worship service to speak on camera about their experiences with Faith Baptist Arlington. The minister worked with one member of the congregation to write both a voice-over script and the interview questions.
I shot the video on a 5D Mark III with an assortment of Canon EF lenses
- 16-35mm f2.8
- 24-70mm f2.8
- 70-200mm f2.8
I used Arri LEDs for all of the interviews. This allowed me to use battery power for each light, which helped me to stay mobile and to work quickly.
I edited the video in Avid Media Composer 7 and used both Photoshop and After Effects for the fullscreen title pages.
