The Dangers of Selfie Sticks [Video]

The Dangers of Selfie Sticks PSA - SCREEN

Pizza Hut decided to put on a great little promotional about how selfie-sticks are getting in the way of us being able to focus solely on you in the selfie. The video is below and is a fun little jab at the whole concept of a selfie stick. But then this happened. I continued cruising through YouTube videos and found a group of 4 people reenacting a car singalong utilizing previously said selfie-stick which ends badly. The selfie-stick may not have directly caused the accident, but the humor ... Continue Reading

Amazing Video without the Amazing Price Tag

It’s not hard to spend millions of dollars on equipment. In fact, there’s a whole convention dedicated to video equipment and its usage. It’s called NAB and it happens every spring in Las Vegas. I’ve never been, but I think it’s just a matter of time. I’m afraid that I better only go once I have a permanent studio set up and tons of paying clients. I bet I could spend $100,000 in the first 5 minutes. What most people don’t know is that you don’t need millions, hundreds of thousands, or even ... Continue Reading

Showing videos can be tricky enough in churches, but what happens when churches create those videos? ... Continue Reading
