As we approached our Christmas Eve services at Emanuel this year, we spent lots of time considering how to make the service special for all the families participating at home. I had the idea to take a song we were planning and record it in a barn, brining the story within the song alive and creating something special even at home. This project consisted of a primary video recording in our Worship Center. This is where we captured all audio and some video. Then, we took camera and lighting equipment to a barn (on a freezing Wednesday evening) and recorded five takes of the song with three cameras. This gave us tons of shots to pick from when editing. Then, I sat down and mixed/mastered the song. After the final mix, I lead the main edit, time aligning and splicing together camera shots to tell a compelling story.
