So this week, I thought I’d update on you on the progress and the continued comments.
We are still receiving great feedback. There is still a crazy amount of chatter from those attending the video venue how much they are fooled. They think that Chad (our lead communicator) is live and not on video.
One of the risks we took was putting the video venue on one of our highly attended services :: 10:30 Sunday morn. Update: still no drop in attendance and the comments are very, very complimentary.
What do we attribute the success? It’s a combination of several things:
- Excellent lighting (on stage and in the room)
- Center lock off, high definition camera
- Head to toe capture. On screen pastor is only a few inches taller.
- Pastor uses four legged stool for his Bible and notes (added depth)
By the Way: The picture posted above is a picture of our video venue. Chad is on video, not live.
We tried video announcements a couple of weeks ago. I’ll tell you how that went on Wednesday.
