At the end of August, I did a blog post about shooting video with a DSLR. The sample clip I posted was very brief.

The blog post was more about the technical lessons learned when shooting with a different camera. For the final video, we meshed DSLR footage and HDV interview shots with some SD historical footage. After all the content-gathering was complete, I left town on vacation, leaving the project in Alex’s capable hands. This was one of 5 videos the poor guy prepared for the first weekend of our Capital Campaign, all of which required the input and sign-off of the church leadership. I’m grateful for all the members of my team, any one of whom I could trust with a project. Alex pulled triple duty to get it all done that week.
