In light of the recent COVID-19 Virus outbreak, I am really seeing the immediate (and hopefully brief) future being all about engaging with your congregation on platforms like Facebook. So, I put together this quick tutorial to help you navigate the world of broadcasting live.
If you are not on Facebook yet, don't worry. It would be relatively simple to build an audience with your congregation. You can go live from your personal page for sure, but you probably want to let other people help you manage your account. It's a great idea to start a Facebook Page just for your church if you don't have one already.
If your church doesn't have a Facebook Page, now might be a good time to create one. What's the difference in a Page and a Group? Don't worry, you can have both...
I had the pleasure of working with Ira Glylack at Capitol Studios the last 2 times I was there. We sat down after the session for a bit just to catch up and talk shop.
We talked about some things that I think are helpful, so of course, I'm sending it to you. I hope you enjoy this conversation.
In this episode, I recorded a conversation with Van Metchke and we talked about leading happy volunteers and working your way DOWN the ladder.
I want to tell you about a mixing hack that I had discovered where I can mix from my car in the parking lot of my studio OR even mix at my home (miles away from my studio).
I'm also using it to do real-time question and answer sessions with my mixing students.
In this video, I will explain how I mix remotely in real timed a little further.
Some links you may want to know:
We've all been there right? You are into a mix and you are not sure whether the changes you've done in the last 2 hours have even improved the mix. It really seems like it sounds WORSE than before.
It's hard to do this, but here's my recommendation.
Seems counter intuitive, right?
But most of the time, you will get further, faster than you ever thought possible.
What seemed to be unsurmountable before, you will likely brush right over.
When you are done (quicker than you probably thought), compare your new mix to the mix you were stuck on... see if it's not better.
Even if it's not, you are likely comparing your new hour long mix to a mix you've probably been on for days.
I've done this by choice before, but I've also been forced to do it by unforeseen circumstances (computer crash without saving).
Recently, I did this with my website MixCoach. It became a bloated mess that I dreaded doing...
