@noahsdaddotcom "periscoping" from on set for the first time. why 40+ people wanted to watch us set up and wait to shoot is a mystery but it was fun to see where they were logging in from. #watermarkarts#apologetics
What started out as a curiosity has turned into a solution. we have many amazing partners and ministries we serve and simply can’t make all the videos that they would love to film. as an experiment we shot some stand-ups with a variety of iphones and will be trying out ipads as well coupled with a nice shotgun mic appropriately placed or a lav. for a communication stand-up, the quality is quite nice and is truly a medium “of the people” so our partners will be able to film many of their projects in their own. obviously, there is merrit to an actual film crew tackling production but for simple communication videos this should be a fun and practical solution. it helps that the room is treated for sound and we have pre-lit it for our users of course 😉 #watermarkarts#setlife#communicationarts#filmmaking#filmmakers#shotoniphone#apple
Last year at our staff christmas party we had the opportunity to place bids and win some cool prizes. one of my bids was a promise to make a piece of artwork that was to include the hands or handprints of our staff. i won the bet, got a cool rain jacket, but still needed to pay the piper.
a hectic schedule this year kept my mind elsewhere and i forgot about my debt until we got close to our christmas party. this year. here is what i came up with. the piece is entitled better together and features a montage of most of our hands on staff which were submitted to me via iphone. the print is attached to a cutting board i salvaged from a burnt house that was being gutted. i like the idea of the hands coming forth from a work surface as it ties into a saying from our arts team that projects are better when you get more hands touching it. the phrase “better together” also relates to the community aspect of our work and church.
can you find our four-fingered hand?
