Have you ever watched a promo video and thought, “Wow! I want to make a video like that for my church!”? Well, it’s never been easier than it is right now, to do it yourself.
If you have the time and the desire, then you can make a great video without any formal training and with a little bit of determination.
We all know the value of a video. We are inundated with videos of all kinds when we use the internet. They are everywhere. According to weforum.org, YouTube is the second most visited site in the world (as of April 2017). That says a lot about the value of video today.
Making room for video production in a church can be a great move, especially since they are so popular. Finding ideas as to what to make a video be about is as easy as searching on Google. The process doesn’t have to be complicated to create, produce, or edit a video. There are many tools that are right at your fingertips and are just waiting for you to use them.
Windows offers a free program called Movie Maker for video editing. If it’s not already installed on your PC, then you can get it for free online. A Mac comes with iMovie already installed. Both programs offer an amateur video editor tons of options for making a great video.
There are, of course, many other video editing software options, but most come with a price tag. If you want to stay in the free realm, then Movie Maker and iMovie are your best software choices.
