Crazy weekend. This week the CFPB Media Crew produced the Saturday sermon portion of the service to be distributed to every multisite venue. Literally, more people will see the Saturday night message on tape than will see the service live.
We nailed the visual elements of the service. We introduced digital signage on the stage during the teaching... a plasma on a rolling cart that is a mirror image of our center screen... and pushed any sermon illustrations (videos, photos, graphics) on that plasma/center screen instead of putting them on the side screen. Very effective. (Already had several people mention to me that they liked it).
And as hard as we worked to nail the visual elements, we had an audio problem (most likely an interfering frequency) with Rick's wireless mic. Sounded like Rice Crispies (Snap, Crackle, Pop) for the majority of the sermon. Not bad live, but HORRENDOUS on tape.
Our plan (as discussed) was during video teaching weeks if the quality is sub CF standards... we need to reshoot the message Saturday night after the service. And that's what we did. 'Til about 10pm Saturday night.
Thanks to Rafael F, Mike C, Charlie B, Keith T, Hector H, Anthony P, and Brian L for sticking around, working through the problems, and helping us produce the message for Video Teaching. CF Media Volunteers are STUDS!
Mental note: Always have a backup plan in place. And don't be afraid to use it.
