Echo Church Media Conference Day 3

Today the Echo Church Media Conference wrapped up with a great talk from Kevin Steele of Steelehouse Productions.  He spoke on the importance of Christian artist to create work of the highest quality and to be a catalyst to other artist in the world.

Earlier in the day I attended Phil Cooke’s seminar on branding.  Based from his book Branding Faith, Phil gave an incredible amount of great information for churches and ministries to use as they identify themselves in their communities.

Overall Echo Church Media Conference was one of the best, well run, beneficial conferences I have been at in awhile.  Echo will have all the main speaker sessions and the breakout sessions available on DVD.  Be sure to check it out.

Echo Church Media Conference Day 1 (cont.)

This post is a continuation of my updates from the Echo Church Media Conference.

Earlier today I attended a session on creating motion graphics in After Effects.  There are some great resources and links from this session on the Echo Media Conference website.  You can check them out here.

Echo is providing lunch and dinner each day of the conference.  You won’t get that from most conferences.  Way to go!  They have really done a great job in making everyone feel welcome and have given a lot of opportunities to connect with other media type people.

I am sitting right now in a session on editing using Final Cut.  Trent is going through step by step on how they created the Echo Church Media Conference teaser trailer.  You can watch it here.

Live Blogging from Echo Church Media Conference

Today is the first day of the Echo Church Media Conference in Dallas, TX.  I will be posting some updates throughout the conference.

They started out this morning with pre-conference labs.  I went to one about podcasting.  The team from Geekbrief.tv gave a great overview on setting up a blog, creating a podcast and posting it to iTunes.  It was very informative and they gave a live demonstration using Garage Band, VID Blaster and Ustream.tv.
