Christian EDM Documentary
December 8, 2010 at 1:34 am #22840
So. . . I had this thought. . .
What if we followed four-five Christian EDM artists from around the world over a one-year period and created a hour to hour-and-a-half documentary about their experiences.
You could follow the release of the documentary with a EDM festival. . .

Well to do that we would have to have enough cameras. I was thinking that we could do interviews/history/event shots that sort of thing. What would be awesome would be to take our tracks and use it for the soundtrack 8-). Maybe we could get some in the studio shots and some explanation of the producers sound. Also we could get djs to talk about their style and maybe the different subgenres. What is the intended audience? Non-EDM listeners or EDM fans? Christians or Non-Christians? Just some thoughts.December 8, 2010 at 2:12 pm #36472

Graphite. . .great ideas. . . I’m sure everyone around here has enough footage. I was thinking Non-Christian (either EDM-listeners or non-EDM fans)
As for the funding. . . One thing I’ve learned from God. . . If He births an idea within us, and it’s according to His will. . . the funding will be there!
I mean, seriously, everyone here does an amazing job for Christ spreading the gospel through music. Rodimus, I think this site is such a blessing. . .
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.December 8, 2010 at 7:38 pm #36474
Well I don’t see why this would cost much money if we all pitched in together. I have adobe premium, which has adobe premier 5, so I got the video editing! I also have around 14 Gb of stock videos, but I have to find out how to use .mov in windows premier.December 8, 2010 at 8:10 pm #36475
Anyone good at writing narration scripts? Or know anything about EDM history in general?December 8, 2010 at 9:07 pm #36476
I could always help with the narration, unless there was some uber pro out there. I don’t think it would cost too much either. Nothing like a little bit of creativity and ingenuity to make it work!!December 8, 2010 at 9:12 pm #36477
actually why would it have to cost anything? It seems all we need is volunteers and time!December 8, 2010 at 9:18 pm #36478
Nate would you be willing to have us use some of the footage that you guys had for the May movement get together?
Also would anyone else be willing to film themselves doing some EDM stuff?December 9, 2010 at 7:40 pm #36479
I have footage from Ichthus 2009, 2010, and Heavenfest 2010.December 10, 2010 at 4:59 am #36480
Great idea!! This sounds pretty attainable if we all just pulled our resources. We should get some of the GodsDJs crew together and film some production EDM stuff in my studio too I have Ableton and Ableton, and the room to do it (it would make for a great background in the video with interviewing… thoughts? I’m actually going to be home in Michigan now unexpectedly from DEC 11th till after Christmas. I NEEEEEEED to produce, it’s in my veins that I need to write music, pronto. Anyways, let’s DO THIS!!!!!!!! We just need to come up with a general concise overview of what we would want in this video, our target audience, and figure out exactly what our overall message is. Many of this big DJs have documentary videos of their travels, trials, etc. So maybe we should go out with our Christian theology and our voice in the EDM scene? I don’t know, we can come up with specifics soon.

A couple things that I’ve thought about. One what resolution are we going to be running? I would personally like to use 1920 x 1080p because this is the standard and is handled by youtube. Second, how long is this going to be? 45 minutes? 2 hours? Maybe this could be determined by the amount of video and music that we get. So if we get video I hope it was recorded with ok resolution. I think it would be nice to get some quality video. Also someone will probably need to get a youtube partner account so we can have videos that are longer than 15 minutes… maybe I should do this
If anyone else is interested in this here is the link
note* after trying to find out how to do this, it seems that you have to have a high profile business or something like that. If anyone knows how to get an hour plus of upload time on youtube let us know.December 10, 2010 at 10:04 pm #36482
