ALEXANDRIA – The Louisiana Baptist Convention communications team in September worked together to produce 10 video/audio reports of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike.
See them at http://www.lbc.org/crisisresponse/.
“The videos brought right to my computer monitor the drama and tragedy of Gustav and of Ike, and the evidence of God’s provision even in the dark times after the storms,” said Karen Willoughby, managing editor of the Louisiana Baptist Message.
“It made me proud to see with my own eyes how Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers got busy serving God by serving people when I saw first-hand – because of the videos – how quickly and effectively our Disaster Relief volunteers get to work after a natural disaster,” Willoughby added. “Viewing these videos even now will be a blessing and inspiration to you.”
Media Production Specialist Danny Nation produced the video segments, with field footage from Missions Media Specialist Stacey Billger, script-writing from Communications Director John Yeats, graphic support from Graphic Design Specialist Kim Petroskey and web delivery by Digital Media Specialist John Ammons.
Billger multi-tasked with still photography, videography, onsite reporting and occasional anchoring of a video segment.
Yeats wrote, directed and frequently anchored the segments, which at press time were dated between Sept. 4 and Sept. 19.
“This is the first time we have covered a story in this fashion, with daily video updates,” Ammons said. “It showcased the capabilities of our team.”
