I want to record a church service using multiple cameras. Any ideas how can I can do this and software to use?

Question by Andres Z: I want to record a church service using multiple cameras. Any ideas how can I can do this and software to use?
I am using a Mac.
Basically, I want to use multiple cameras to record a church service, all connected to my Mac, and control it from here.
It’s going to be a very low budget film.
I’ve heard of Premiere Pro, and have used a little bit of it.
But any other ideas?
How to connect the cameras to each other, if possible how to connect the church sound system?

Thanks.

forget the mac

you need PTZ cameras, these can be remotely aimed (Pan-tilt) and framed with the zoom. since you don’t need to change all cameras at the same time, only one controller is needed.

next you need a video mixer. any of the Panasonic WJ-MX series will work. The WJ-MX50a is made for 4 cameras. These mixers also have audio so you can mix additional audio sources, such as the church PA. mixer also has a “preview” output so you can see how you are adjusting the camera before you “take” it on the program out.

finally, record live on a DVD-R recorder/player. that way you are ready to make copies even as the echos of the last song are fading away.

Any ideas for church activities using the number 125?

Question by Creeker Girl: Any ideas for church activities using the number 125?
Our church is celebrating it’s 125th anniversary this year and we thought it might be fun to incorporate the number 125 in different activities throughout the year. Problem is we can’t think of many ways to do that. We are going to release 125 balloons with cards attached printed with sciptures. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Answer by Reagan is Dead
Don’t waste your time and attempt to ruin this person’s life. They are just trying to have a better life.
If he has a ss#, he is probably being paid over the table or is trying to be paid over the table, and is therefore paying taxes. Also, illegal immigrants are working the hard, thankless, low paying jobs no one else wants to work. This person’s presence isn’t hurting anybody.
It would be more in line with the Church’s ideology to let this person stay. Remember, there is US law, and there is God’s law.

Preacher using the ‘F’ word in Church (A must see)

Normally I don’t do this, but I heard about this on a radio show going to work. I would like to share it with everyone. There is truth in what he is saying. All major religions address his point of view. If you don’t have a sense of humor, please don’t watch this.
