Beautiful imagery, with a perfect soundtrack. I think this would make an awesome worship background, don’t you?

Brad> I think this would make an awesome worship background, don’t you?
Actually? No. I don't use motion backgrounds that draw attention to themselves. I never want anyone in the congregation staring at a motion background, trying to mentally sort out what it is. That's counter to my goal which is to create an environment conducive to worshiping Jesus.
I like to say, "If people notice our media, it's not working."
I like your thinking ohmaar. Too many time media becomes the end and not the means. I'm kind of having that problem in my church. Do you have a list of guidelines or a document laying down some parameters when using media that I could share with my team? Thanks
It's very awesome looking, however I might do a bit smoother transitions between the segments or play it up and make the transitions a little more flashy.
It really depends on what style of worship this will be a background for.
Who knows…maybe you make two versions in the end.
Interesting discussion – but God is The Creator! All true art reflects His majesty! I may be drawn to the wonder of a flower because of its intrinsic beauty – but God is the source – beautiful bit of art
I have to disagree. As a visual artist, I am drawn to awe by visuals that make me think of the greatness of God. Especially if it is a song I already know, I love basking in the visual simulations and pondering the greatness of God.
There are time when a plain jane background is a necessity, but there are also times when a picture can paint a thousand words.
I tend to use Motion Backgrounds for our youth group most of the time because of the high energy of the music or to help focus attention and supplement the words. I generally try to match the words and the backgrounds together as much as possible. Or I will use a "fluid" motion
I'm with Brad in that it is often a fine line to walk. My overarching philosophy is that the media is a supportive role to the music and the message. What can I bring to the screen that will allow people to connect better/deeper to the lyrics of the song or the message, and in doing so create a bridge for them to more fully experience the manifest presence of God and fully worship Him? All of that while trying to balance presenting something that is visually interesting and engaging without over powering or disengaging people from the lyrics/text/ Scripture/message.
Anybody know what music this is?
Can anyone share some links to sites where I can find music like this? I'm looking for something that is ambient like this but maybe kicks into some distorted drums…? I've tried most of the major production music sites. I would like to find a smaller company who produces high quality stuff. Suggestions?
