If you know me, you know I’m a reader and all for continuing education. I love to come across cool online learning resources (which I’ll highlight from time to time). If you’d like to learn more about video basics or just want to brush up on your knowledge, I encourage you to check out this Video 101 website. I went through each category and think it can be a great overview or refresher for anyone. Check it out!
I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but here in Dallas, we’re experiencing some very icy/COLD weather – which reminds me: You might want to check out my “Winter Backs”, which includes 80 winter-themed backgrounds for only $25 – that’s like 30 cents a background! 🙂 And yes, that was a shameless plug – meaning, I feel no shame. The “Winter Backs” are available at Meatloaf Media, SermonAde, The Shoutable Store and WorshipHouse Media.
A PLEA TO DESIGNERS, FILMMAKERS AND ALL PRODUCERS OF CHRISTIAN MEDIA
Yesterday I received an email from an African-American pastor in Chicago. He mentioned how he had searched all over for media resources for Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday, but could not find anything. He was frustrated and I’m guessing, hurt. Not only is this something that I’m very aware of, is close to my heart and have mentioned already to countless producers, but this is one of the projects that I, personally, (Wasteland Media) am working on – a collection of city/urban worship backgrounds.
I, once again, call on artists everywhere to become aware of the need and prayerfully consider addressing it. I was on a panel at a film festival last year and made a plea for African-American filmmakers and artists to hit the streets and start making their media available to companies like SermonSpice, the Shoutable Store and WorshipHouse Media. 99.9% of the media resources available to the Church are pictures and videos of white Americans. I invite you to join me in addressing this very real need and if you have usable media, please let the companies I mentioned know about your work.
