VIDeo info

This page provides information for submitting videos for the Sunday worship service.

Video Deadline

Saturday by 2pm (except by prior arrangement)

Video Recording Instructions

  1. Record in landscape mode at either 720p (1280x720) or 1080p (1920x1080) resolution using .mp4, .m4v or .mov format.  This is the norm on most phones, computers, and video cameras.  4k resolution is too be too big to upload.

  2. Using your smart phone is the easiest option for most people and provides good videos.

  3. Use a tripod or other stable platform. 

  4. Generally frame for head and top half of torso with the camera near eye level.

  5. Avoid bright backlighting.  Daylighting is best.

  6. Put your phone on Do Not Disturb or Airplane Mode to avoid interruptions and dings.

  7. Be careful of wind, planes, or traffic noise if you record outside.

  8. Pause for a couple seconds after starting the video and before stopping it so we can edit out the part of turning on/off the camera if you’re doing it yourself.

  9. Do a test recording to verify video and audio.  Feel free to upload a test in advance if you want to verify.
