video and multimedia projects for CEF in Europe
This past weekend, I completed work on a video that will be used to help promote the Children’s Ministry Leadership Course (CMLC) held at “Kilchzimmer”. The course is also held in other locations around Europe – Russia, Georgia, Balkans, Ukraine, etc.. For the video, we interviewed four students from the summer 3-month course. An interview approach to a promo video seems to work well and involves far less production time.
Students attended the summer course from across Europe. For example, one couple came from the Faroe Islands (located between Scotland and Iceland) and are preparing to head up a children’s camp in Greenland. As you’ll notice in the video, while the summer course is held in English, many of the students have English as a second language and will be returning home to reach the children in their country and language.
The 3-month Autumn course at Kilchzimmer is going on now in German and English. There are plans to create a similar promotional video in German, interviewing several German speaking students. This also avoids the need for translation or sub-titles.
