Ok, so Hell has frozen over and Micah Stevens has a blog. It has actually been going on for about 2 months now but I think it is known only to a few. So, I am giving a shout out to Micah Stevens. If my team is everything video, creative packaging, product development, pre and post production for North Point’s services, then Micah’s team is EVERYTHING live. Audio, lights, stage design, technical, live video and problem solving multi-campuses. He is a stud, his team is a bunch of studs and he needs to be on your blogroll.
I got to hang with Transition Pete (thanks for the appetizers!) and then later with Pete and Jenni from Crosspointe church.
This was Monday night after the first main session at Drive. I am in Blue and white striped shirt, top left. You can’t see but my left hand is on Carlos’s butt. Yes from way up there. Thats why his eyes are so big.
After session 1 – Los, me and others are gonna meet for dinner, or desert, or coffee, or something!!
Who’s in. For those that said yes on Carlos’s blog, be a sport and say yes on mine too!
See ya TOMORROW!!!!
Ok Folks… we’re ready.
For those of you who are going… and I want to hear from each and every one of you, it’s gonna be incredible, fun, crazy, engaging, helpful, and out of this world!!
The whole staff has been working really hard to get ready for the arrival of over 2300 people for Drive.
One of the coolest parts is that we get to have ALL campuses involved with the production instead of meeting on Mondays and Tuesdays and then saying goodbye.
Here are many of the people on the production and media staff from all three campuses…
Los, (SPD Director at Buckhead) backstage.
Adam Dukes – Media Team at North Point. He is getting Sunday’s TenBefore ready to go.
Tyler (Browns Bridge Service Programming Director) at the helm of Drive. He is producing and keeping us all in line!
Big Micah (Production Director at North Point) yelling at me “I need videos Brad!”
Dave Blakeslee – Assocociate Media Director in his editing suite sleeping on the job!
Left to right – Chris Briley (Browns Bridge Production Director), Julie Arnold (Service Programming Director at North Point and my BOSS), Dave Stagl (Audio Director at North Point), and Micah.
Camera Volunteers and the Video Director at North Point, the one the only, Chip Barber!!
Reid Greven (music extradanaire) at North Point! On stage behind the computer. He will be playing the keys for the conference by the way!
This is a little late but figure I should post it. Brad (me on the left) and Brad Weston (renewed vision/Propresentor) swung by to say hello (late last week). Brad Volunteers at North Point and some of our partnerships. He’s kinda a brainiac/genius! And a friend.
Just a word to say thank you for coming over to the motion house to check things out. I am truly honored. I however, really want to hear and know a little about you. If you have been peeking in, checking things out, please say hi, tell me a little bit about yourself or ask any question you want.
Macrumors did an article on my buddy Brad Weston (on left) and his company Renewed Vision. They were out at MacWorld in San Francisco (I wonder if my dad saw them). I worked for Brad at a company called Halo where he basically taught me everything I know about technology, authoring and creating video deliverables. He is a volunteer at North Point and our other partnership churches. I can’t say enough about the impact Brad has had at North Point and a ton of other churches around the country. The direction of my life changed after working with Brad and the guys.
Give a shout if you have used propresenter or any other of renewed Vision’s products.
***Update*** Greg (right in picture) just sent me these links from Apple. I am stoked these guys are getting some great scenery on Apple’s web. If you haven’t used their stuff download the demo right from Apple’s site at the links below.
Check this out or this out. Congratulations guys.
