Using Photography as B-Roll
As the production department at the church, we are also responsible for most, if not all the videos that hit our screens. So we film a lot of interviews, events, etc. However, we also find ourselves lacking in the B-Roll department. As any good videographer knows, B-Roll is paramount to keeping your story interesting (especially when telling stories). Like most people we have found that often, we are stuck with using still images for our B-Roll. While I would say that great video B-Roll trumps great still image B-Roll any day, occasionally you get to work with some really nice photography that tells a story within itself. Here’s a great example of that in the recent video we made promoting an adoption ministry in our church.
