The boy(s) behind the camera

I recently asked the budding cinematographer some questions about his work. Below are his answers.

1. What is the hardest part about videotaping the service at Rainbow?

Three things; 1. Knowing what to zoom up on. There are so many things! 2. Knowing what to do if the camera runs out of memory, and 3. Knowing when to go to the bathroom (ha).

2. Do you enjoy doing this and if so, why?

I am enjoying this quite a lot because I get to work with a camera! I really like working with anything that has to do with technology.

3. Anything else you want to say about the experience so far?

It has been really fun working the camera! I would like to thank Phil Rhoads for letting me operate the camera.


I, too, want to say thank you to both Phil and Joel. Your work is much appreciated.

Soon we will need to decide how to incorporate some video and audio options into our newly designed church website. Hopefully people like Joel and Phil, who know a lot about technology, will help the rest of us along!
