SeedsConf Night 1 – A View from the Dark Side

Since the conclusion of this year’s Seeds Conference, we’ve been posting quite a bit of info to supply some context as to how we approached things this year. In addition, you may have heard some of us talk about how long it takes to really come up with our music sets, worship moments, and creative segments, and this year was certainly no different.

Exercising restraint to allow room for authenticity is not always easy, but when things were all said and done, we felt great about how things turned out. Between the spirit in the room, the flow of the songs and segments, and the timely messages brought by our guest speakers, the presence of God was definitely felt.

As a production team, one of the things we messed around with was assembling some different views of the general sessions and making them available via our web stream. We dabbled with recording similar videos during this past Christmas season but this was the first time we offered multiple views and multiple streams available in real time.

We tend to get a lot of questions regarding our audio and music production, so we shot an overhead view of the audio console, a feed of the RTA measurement window (which tells us what kind of sound pressure level is happening in the room), our “evaluation” wide shot, and the actual program view for context.

These four views play quite well together and it’s actually fairly interesting to see what’s going on from a viewpoint not normally available in the room.

We also thought it’d be helpful to include our production cue sheet. This is the official “run of show” our production teams use to stay in sync across all departments. Hope you find it useful!
