In the past for conference videos, they tend to be more poetic like and have images to help bring the theme of the conference out. This year I wanted to create a journey that the characters would grow in. It was fun to connect with different friends and see parts of their life. I filmed and edited this piece.
One of the most challenging projects I would do every year are the Women’s Conference trailer, these videos were an important part of the creative direction the conference would take on. I would set the tone and pace, build up excitement and inspire. Here are a few I did in the past.
This conference trailer we went out to get some footage that would visually show a warrior in her element. I used some effects to bring out the message of the conference and to build excitement.
Days before I went into labor with my first child, I finished this project for a women’s conference, the idea was to use all the promotional footage and create a countdown to the start of the conference. It would be the last project I create for The Rock Church, a good way to end with a bang! The LED screen was going to be the largest it’s ever been, so the video was created for that display.
I always enjoyed working on projects for young people, there is a lot of creativity that is allowed and just having fun. This project was an idea based on the theme of a series, it was great to be able to use some effects and filming with actors.
I always wanted to write and direct my own film and found a fun contest to be apart of. I submitted the project on line and it was a great learning experience making the project happen and share the story inside my heart.
I met Gail while interviewing her for a church project. She later asked me to put together her business story. We worked together to capture her passion to honor the hero’s of this country.
I filmed Gail and interviewed her for a giving campaign, I was given the task to edit her story and also capture her heart to give.
I was excited to finally have a drone to get the shots I always wanted for this opener. I had a team help out with filming and flying the drone. I was mainly directing and developing the concept of the opener. I had fun editing and putting this together.
One of my favorite event to be part of while working at The Rock Church was when the youth conference took place. There was so much excitement and creativity in the air, the energy was contagious.
One of my favorite things to do is to create nothing out of something.
Usually that means I am spending a few days in After Effects, animating shapes and figuring out how to do what I see in my head.
I created this Lyric Video for a Christmas service.
Through out the years I was asked to create a video that would open up a women’s conference to communicated the theme for the year. Often time I was asked to cover specific details and make them into an entertaining piece. This video was accompany with a live dance.
A friend of mine was hosting an event at her college, I wanted to be part of what she was hosting and made a logo intro for her. It was simple and fun to make.
I worked at The Rock Church and World Outreach Center for 12 years. I spent most of my time creating videos from nothing. Usually I would start with an idea, develop it into a script and began to piece something together. What I enjoyed the most while working at the Rock was those around me believed and trust me to make videos from my own creativity and ideas as well as lead the video team. I appreciated the freedom and the opportunity to use my time working there to learn so much about producing videos. We were always busy there and I enjoyed the busyness. Here is one of many I made there recapping the year.
This was one of those special projects that I knew would impact others. Sharing and editing Pam’s story about her battle with cancer was a video I wanted to go the extra mile for.
