The Videos the church makes based on past conference talks are amazing and life changing. By adding some related video to the talk it is more powerful and understandable. The TV News in the 1950’s used to be a “talking head”.
They would “rip and read” off the news teletype printer. Us kids went running from the room when the totally boring news came on. Now TV news makes millions and is entertaining.
If a church speaker was interested, there are many media professionals that could “illustrate” talks with video clips, still photos and graphics.
A study could be done to measure the interest level of families watching conference. If more graphics got teens and children watching that would be good. The study could also measure the learning retention, and even behavior change. Thanks, just an idea.
