View the Christmas video here.
In this 11:32 video, it took four days for Brent Mann, the Media Director at Highland Village Church in Bloomington, Indiana, to handle filming, along with a number of hours of editing.
The equipment used during this filming featured a Panasonic LUMIX GH5 camera, attached to a AtomOS Inferno recording monitor to get the best quality possible.
What was spent to complete the film project was less than $500. All the props, locations, and actors were donated or from the church.
The person who served as the main actor in the film was actually a high level manger for an electrical company in the area.
For smaller or medium churches, such a project is certainly possible, as Highland Village runs at around 230 people, and was able to complete such a project.
