3D POSSIBILITIES

The ability to make a 3D movie is not that far out of your reach as a youth leader. You can see how to make one yourself at ehow.com. There is even software that you can buy online to install to your desktop. Even though it still seems overwhelming you can bet there will be editing software for the amateur in probably less than a couple of years. With glasses being relatively cheap it would seem only logical that this could lead to some interesting possibilities. Technology should never distract from your message but there might be an occasion where taking your students to a new experience would be completely acceptable and even desired. Watch this video and see the explanation below.

This past month attendees at the Asahi Karakuchi exhibition were given 3D glasses for portions of the exhibit. The video below was looped and simply screen projected on a large wall.

So how about it. What would you do with 3D movie making possibilities? Announcements? Camp promo?

    You just kicked my creative thing in my brain with the 3D…
    How do you make a flyer or print material that you need 3D glasses to read?..thinking bout a 3D teaching series down the road…could be with three things that start with D…or something like “Faith, Hope, and Love” all of which help us see clearer…Students given the glasses when they walk in to worship…

    I love your creative mind and the stash…keep it coming…

    I know you can do this with paper and have it printed. Sending it in the mail with the glasses would be sweet.

    That video was very cool. We took the 3-D boom and created our Summer Camp around the concept last year. 3-D was for “3 Days” of service. We spent 3 days serving the needs of our community and 3 nights of crazy fun. We made 3-D videos that were a part of the worship sets, and like Brian said, we handed out the glasses to all the students during the services. Our ‘run-on’ skit/video was developed around 4 friends in a boy-band trying to find their identity, which when one of the members dropped out, the band became “3-D.” We closed the last night with a live performance from our 3-D actors. Very fun concept the whole way through. This year we are still running the 3-D branded camp, but are going more towards a Cirque de Soleil/mild Circus theme for the programming. Have fun with whatever you do….the kids love the 3-D stuff.

    How awesome. That sounds like a visual buffet of awesomeness.
