All these videos have been made with Windows
Movie Maker, and are very simple to create. If you have a somewhat
newer computer, you probably have Windows Movie Maker (unless you have
a Mac, and your video software is even better). Some of the videos,
like the Clunky and Leroy, are short videos taken with a miniDV cam corder.
We just took a view shots and put them together to make the introduction
and exit. Some of the videos, like the Birtha, Nerd Skit, and Joshua
Skits, are simply pictures we took with a digital camera, and then set
them to music. Some, like the Simon RePeter Video, have no pictures
at all, but are simply done with the software of Windows Movie Maker.
The music was purchased or downloaded and then added.
I need to warn you, when you start making
videos for your children's church, you will become addicted.
If you come up with some unique and fun
videos that you have used for your children's church, please send me a
copy or the idea. I would love to pass it on to everyone.
