To mark the launch of a new initiative by Every Home For Christ, we created a promo video that sought to capture the passion of our workers, the desire of Jesus for the lost, and variety of locations and years that EHC has worked in.
I spent two months writing the script, mulling over the core of the story (Jesus’s desire for the lost) as I tried to find a way into the video. The pieces finally came together, and then it was time to search through EHC’s ten-year library for footage that matched the feel of the video. Often it was the discarded and unused clips that had the energy I wanted.
Transitions were created in After Effects, and Color was a vital part to gluing multiple camera formats together. Jonathan’s voice also added the gravitas the narration needed.
In the end, it felt great to have a vision that I couldn’t really articulate, and then see it all come together in a compelling video.
