If you are out to accomplish significant things in your life, you are going to be spending a lot of time outside your comfort zone. You might as well get the most out of it.
Yay! You all know how much we love Dropbox here at GeekRev. Well, we also love vimeo. While a lot of the videos we create for GeekRev.com are hosted on YouTube, our church uses vimeo for the videos we create for our faith community. We typically upload the finished video to dropbox for access by our media computer in the sanctuary, then also upload to vimeo so that people can view them later and share them with their social networks.
Well, now, among some other features, vimeo has added the ability to automatically upload video from Dropbox to vimeo - wiping out a whole step and a lot of time! Yay!
See how to make this work, after the break. Continue Reading…
As a church pastor bent on helping people help people, projects like this (discovered on ifixit.org) excite me. Robert Litt wanted to get a technology program going in his school – where there was no budget – and made it happen – with no money. He sees a need, develops a passion for making it happen, and then doesn’t let anything (like a lack of money) get in the way of seeing it happen – awesome.
My bride, Angel, has often talked about the need for a community computer lab in our city – especially after seeing how hard it is for disadvantaged kids to access our public library’s computers. I am encouraged by Robert’s efforts.
After the break, there’s a video of Robert Litt, the amazing guy behind the “computer lab for no dollars” effort.
I found this over at churchjuice.com. It’s notes from an Echo 2012 lecture by Rob Thomas, the resident of RT Creative Group. At Thrive Church, we make a lot of mini movies. Rob gives some really good ideas on what make a great mini movie.
I love what Rob is trying to convey. One of the biggest challenges I find is getting the main idea across cleanly, but effectively. It’s not as easy as it sounds. To get a tight, compelling script takes a lot of effort, and is way more important than the quality of your video work.
