Elohim Lyric Video

Welcome! You are invited to participate in my first ever fan-created lyric video. I've broken up the lyrics of the chosen song, Elohim, into phrases short enough to fit on one screen (though some are longer than others). I need some creative people to bring them to life - kids, grown-ups, even families or other groups can participate.

So what do you have to do?

  1. Choose a lyric slide.
  2. Sign up to let me (and others) know what you intend to submit.
  3. Create a physical piece of art showing the lyrics.
  4. Record a short (~15-second) video clip of your work.
  5. Upload your video here.
  6. Share the combined lyric video far and wide!

In addition to the lyric slide you choose, I am also looking for other video contributions:

  • "My God is love": I want as many different versions of this slide as possible, from every participant.
  • Creation footage: Record 15-second video clips of the creator working on his/her submission.
  • Singing / Worshipping: Record 30-second videoclips of someone singing/worshipping along with the bridge of the song ("He is Almighty God..."). Your audio will not be used.

To help you prepare (and provide a soundtrack for singing/worshipping recordings), here is a draft lyric video I produced using stock video footage.

Video Recording Guidelines

Please keep the following instructions in mind when recording your video submissions. If there is a problem with your video file, you may need to re-record!

  • Video resolution: Record video in HD (720p is the target resolution).
  • Wide screen: Record in landscape (wide) orientation.
  • Clear and legible: Creative word art is okay, but each word must be large and legible in your video.
  • Lighting: Record in bright lighting, preferably outdoors.
  • Camera movement: Hand-held shots are okay; no tripod necessary. Do try to keep still/smooth though!
  • People, please: Your art is great, but we'd love to see you too!
  • Fill the frame: Fill as much of the video frame as possible with your artwork (and people).
  • It's not a still photo: Subject movement is okay - try keep it subtle/smooth.
  • Smiles and laughs: Inject some life into your video clip to express God's joy to the audience.
