Easter 2014 – Video Round Up

This Easter was a little odd for me in that it’s the first time in 8 years that I wasn’t working for a church. I was, however, keeping an eye on social media and watching what was being posted in the way of video for Good Friday and Easter services. Here are a few that I found particularly amazing. I hope that they inspire others to produce some great pieces for next year.

Death to Life

This was a cool collaboration between Minister of Media Arts, Colton Holmes (@coltonmace) and Worship Pastor, Lance Dockery, with a little help on the second camera by Brooke Davis. (Another piece for Good Friday HERE)


Two Kings

Produced for Christ’s Church of the Valley, Peoria, Arizona

Project Lead – Kris Bargen @krisbargen (Pre-production, DP, Editor)
Producer / Director – Cameron Smith @cameron987
Script & Underscore – Michael Olson @1michaelolson
Post Production – Nick Armenta @narmenta (Color Grade)
Actor – Jonathan King (Found him by posting a Casting Call on a Facebook Group called “Arizona Film”)

What I love about each of these pieces is such wonderful differences in conveying the Gospel message as well as what great media can come from teams large and small. A good, well executed plan can make for such wonderfully engaging video.

Did you produce something for your church’s Easter or Good Friday services? Post a link in the comments so others can can see.
