So, for this year’s Congress we took part in the video competition. The video had to be somewhat a trailer based on the theme FOREVER STRONG (Isaiah 49:5). For the first time ever, I was responsible for the whole process of making the video. It was a challenge but with all the help from the video-comp. team and everyone else, I always had the drive to keep on going though at times I felt giving up. The challenge was that I had never done this before and it had to be for a competition, the person who had more experience in all this was out of town and finally, the timespan was too short. Apart from all that, my creativiy was on level zero most of the time and the ideas just didn’t keep on coming. The video competition team and I had enough ideas though. However, it was hard carrying them out in an interesting and catchy way. The video shoots were fun and also spontaneous in a way, only the editing was pretty tiring. Comparing the video material we had with the result, you can see that we cut out a lot. I want to apologise to the people who I left out in the video. You still helped and made a great job! This whole experience taught me not to give up even though your mind kills you with lots and lots of doubt. It made me realise that if you do your best, good things will still happen. Out of all videos that have been shown during the Congress, ours was the shortest but probably have made a big impact since we took the 2nd place for it. I was very surprised and very happy when they announced it. God is really good. Just by thinking that it was extremely nervewracking for me to be in the audience watching it on full-screen and literally being able to see everyone’s reactions. It was a good start in something that might develop.
Look and watch for yourself. Feedback is appreciated.
