In 2011, the Pastor of my church celebrated his 25th Anniversary of ministry there. I was asked to do a picture-video as part of the celebration that year. So, I did. It's been over a year since I viewed this video. It brought back a lot of very nice memories of Pastor Jim's celebration that year. Actually, it brought back a lot of nice memories of my time at that church as well. I've been keyboardist & choir director for this church for 29 years now. It's a very nice church. It has gone through a lot of change during my tenure there. But while other churches are sadly closing its doors in the area, this one keeps on going. Our church is one of only a few in the area that still has a functioning choir! Pastor Jim plays a huge role in the spiritual life of this church. He plans on retiring next year. When he does retire, he will be sorely missed.
The video itself most probably shows my lack of expertise in video-making. However, I found myself still digging the music while listening to it. I sequenced the music using Apple's Logic Pro. Instrumental libraries used were JABB (all of the horns and piano and much of the percussion), Kirk Hunter Strings (forgot which library used of his), Music Lab's RealGuitar and Music Lab's RealStrat, the electric bass is from an old sample-set for Logic's Sampler which I like to use, and finally the snare drum from Vir2's Elite Orchestral Percussion (or possibly from GPO's Basic Orch Percussion, I really don't remember).
Oh. . . I edited the pictures using Adobe's Photoshop and the video using Apple's Final Cut Pro 7 and Motion (forgot which version).
I hope you enjoy the music and the video.
