Game Night & iPhone Video

Filed under: Videos,Wednesday Nights,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 9:15 pm

Tonight, we were scheduled to do water games.  However, due to the weather we were forced inside.  We opted to do a game night.  I used it as a chance to try out my new iPhone (Amanda surprised me w/ it last night).

During one of the games, Foot Fencing, I recorded some video.  Trimmed the ends of a couple of clips.  Emailed them & uploaded them to YouTube.  The trimming & uploading to YouTube was completed in less than a minute.  Here’s the 2 clips:

I see tons of potential for using this in youth ministry.  The video isn’t near the quality of a “real camera”, but it’s plenty good enough for most of our stuff.  I can see myself using it for:

  • man on the street type interviews w/ teens
  • recording interviews w/ teens & adults @ retreats/camps & posting immediately to YouTube as a way to connect w/ parents
  • video scavenger hunts
  • recording video on site visits
  • capturing video at camps/retreats for a highlight video
