For a while we’ve been editing and filming weekly highlights with UCB Media (YouTude Link Here) for the ‘Word For Today’ booklet and audio series they produce. Here’s one for December 2014 on what we treasure most and putting Jesus first. See what you think.
This has actually been quite a lot of work as we have selected just one ‘thought’ for each week, edited it down to a shortened TV friendly version and then I’ve memorized it (13 at a time) for filming. As you can imagine, trying to get 13 short scripts word perfect can take quite a lot of effort and time – but I believe the results are so much better than using an autocue and so I made the effort.
The other thing about it is that it has been a blessing to us as we have edited and prepared the scripts. Many times, the scripts have spoken to us and our own situation as we prepared and used them. And then, often when we watch them again as they are released they speak to us again. I guess that’s the way the Lord works!
The actual filming, editing and production is done by the team at UCB and is always fun … and maybe at times a little stressful if we have a lot of noise in the restaurant when we’re trying to film. If there’s one thing we’ve learned – it’s get finished before the lunchtime rush!
I don’t know if we’ll be doing any more of these in the future, but I think we’ve done about 1 years worth of them (about 52) – many of which you can find on the UCB Media YouTube channel I linked above.
What do you think of them? Leave a comment :o)
