What it takes to make a
GREAT VIDEO at your location ...
The founder of FaithDaily.com will tell you that his dad at one time supported his four sons as a photographer, taking pictures of people every one of whom had their own camera!
Although we donate our work to our clients in honor of our founder's dad, we too understand that just owning a camera does not mean you are a photographer. There is s-o-o much more to it.
Here are some of the areas that get special attention when we produce a 100% custom video for you. ...
We use the latest high-definition, wide-screen professional video and still capture cameras and lenses, mostly from Sony® and Canon®.
We normally bring 3 to 4 cameras to each shoot to handle the variety of conditions we may encounter. Most times we shoot using natural light but, if needed, we have lighting equipment on board to handle almost any situation. As any cinematographer will tell you, it's how a scene is filmed that will convey honest emotion. Subtle things like lighting, facial expressions, focus techniques, etc. can make an ordinary video compelling.
Sound is just as important as the picture in a movie. To insure pro results, we use quality Sennheiser® microphones to capture every nuance of testimony. We often enrich that sound in post production and mix in a sound track to make your movie more dramatic and interesting to view.
While quality cameras and sound equipment are important for creating a film, the interviewer is the single most important asset in producing a meaningful interview presentation. It is a job that requires knowing how to recognize and bring out the best of the person being interviewed.
When we produce a video for your church or non-profit, we will make sure you always put your best foot forward. Ron shoots the video and photos; Tricia does the interviewing. Your members will appreciate their warm, southern-style friendliness and their professional knowledge. Plus, they can relate to almost any interviewing situation. They've been married 44 years, grew up in radically different churches, have grown children (one is a priest), and are now retired.
Ron is a former radio announcer and computer industry executive who now loves working behind a camera and in the Faith Daily editing studio. Tricia is a former school teacher who really knows how to put people at ease. Together, they make a great team one you will be comfortable with from the moment you meet them.
The Editing Studio
After all of the footage is shot at your location (or ours), we bring it into our studios to edit and produce the final video. This is by far the most time consuming part of making a great presentation. Expect it to take up to a couple of months to complete in many cases. We normally shoot hours of footage but only a few minutes makes it into your final movie(s).
The World Premiere
Your finished, edited video will be placed on our high speed servers and will appear online 100% commercial free, except for production and copyright credits.
Unlike YouTube® and similar video services, there are no ads on the page on which your video appears and no offensive content or links that often appear next to videos on those services. Your commerical-free, professionally produced videos are then linked directly to your church or nonprofit website.
We can also provide you with a copy of your video on a USB drive if you want to place it on your own servers.
