This past October I wrote a two-part blog series for you all explaining the effectiveness of using video to communicate with teens and an actual “how to” post of making videos a reality for your group. It’s been fun to see many of you pick up on the idea of using video to communicate more with your groups both at church and online throughout the week.
Last week I watched some tutorial videos on YouTube about how to use a program on my Mac called LiveType (included for free with my purchase of Final Cut Express). Although the program looked a bit intimidating at first, it is really quite simple to use. Below is my very first LiveType video and I made it for all of you! Feel free to download and use this generic “Youth Group News” video introduction with any youth group videos you make.
