Here is one of the ways we did announcements at Amplify 2010! *yes we were really slapping each other*

So we made this video for the opener of Amplify 2010 and the idea was we were late for Amplify and when we go into the back door at the end of the video we would bust out through the screen that they are watching the video on. So enjoy. Also as a sidenote, when we busted through the screen we had no idea the stage was short so I almost fall off and Aaron falls off the stage and broke his arm.
I love the idea that the peeps over at Fuse* came up with for their message. Brad sets it up like this on the student blog:
I need to give you a little context before you watch this video…
the majority of this sermon was preached via complete silence—
If you watch the piece you’ll be seeing exactly what students were experiencing–
Here’s how we did it…. I typed up a sermon that Ben placed into multiple motion pieces… I literally ran the CG from a laptop on stage-
This gave me the ability to discern the heaviness and awkwardness present in the room… and allow the Holy Spirit to prompt responses in the souls of everyone in attendance…
I’d encourage you to have a journal handy if you are going to watch the service— I believe God may have something specific for you as you participate-
We did a series called “Talking Donkeys” in Truth Student Ministries. It was all about hard to believe stories in the Bible. We did Balaam’s Talking Donkey, The Floating Ax Head, and the story of Dry Bones.This is how we opened our service for the Dry Bones story. I think it helped bring home the idea of bones rising up from the dead. We used a mix between video and drama for this. Truth Student Ministries does Thriller from Tim Lemons on Vimeo.
