the price of awesome-ness

i know all i ever do is post video’s or link to other people’s awesomeness, but i thought i needed to share these.

once upon a time, i wrote on this very blog, “i know what church could look like because i can see it in my head.” that may not be a direct quote, but it’s close.

well the folks at fellowship church pay attention to the worship environment, and they do it in incredible ways. i already posted the video “new creation” (see what wasn’t live on the video element), so that’ll be exhibit a. pay close attention to the backing video elements in these next 2 videos. these kinds of supporting elements are what i see in that vision. not many people are doing it now, and i’m not a fan of doing it every song but… i think it can enhance some thoughts like only images can. you can hear a song a million times, but once you “see” that song, i think it changes everything.

here’s their version of phil wickham’s “true love”:

and their version of a trans siberian orchestra classic:

ps-the trans siberian stuff was created in smoke (which we demo’d at work last year) which is basically so expensive you have to contact somebody for pricing, but i’m told from our demo that not only is it one of the most complex editing format’s available, it’s upwards of $30k


ok now

today is the release date for jon mclaughlin‘s OK NOW. go get it. i know i say this a lot, and if you truly did go get it every time i told you to, you’d be as broke as i am. at least itunes preview it.

also check out my friends 33 miles song “one life to live” on this week’s itunes discovery download.

oh btw-new site is up. looks like i spent hours slaving over css and html and php and all those other useful codes. wadda you think?
