If you have been watching our Just Added videos you may have seen a curious producer name in the mix, BlueBoxMedia. We decided to ask them some questions so here you go! Enjoy this interview and remember our producers are people too!
WHM: How did you get involved in digital art and motion graphics?
BlueBoxMedia: Well, about 4 yrs ago I was attending a church that had a very talented media guy doing videos and motion graphics. His work inspired me so I decided to jump into it, and as all good media guys know you GOT to start somewhere! so I did! with Windows Movie Maker. I still have my very first video somewhere on some hard-drive stuffed in some box. Boy that was a funny video, loaded with default transitions and movie clips. Anyways, eventually I wised up and put myself in an internship where I was underneath someone who knew what he was doing, and I literally started filling myself with information from tutorials to hands on experience. It’s been a fun ride so far and I can’t wait to see what God does next!
WHM: What programs do you work in to create your videos?
BlueBoxMedia: The major programs I use is Adobe Suite, C4D and FCP. Pretty standard stuff. But, like I said earlier… It all started with Windows Movie Maker
WHM: Where did the name blueboxmedia come from?
BlueBoxMedia: The name “blueboxmedia” came from two things. The first thing was that my favorite color is blue, and the second thing I was trying to think of something that could be a fun way to describe what I want blueboxmedia to be. For that I had the idea that all good things come in boxes. So eureka! the name blueboxmedia was created. It has my favorite color and its a box full of media.
WHM: What is your favorite type of church media to use?
BlueBoxMedia: My favorite type of church media to use, is the kind that is relevant to your audience. Which is why I like WHM so much! it allows church’s from across the world to find media that is relevant for them personally! There are many really good producers here on WHM and its an honor to be working along side them in bringing people relevant content to “The Church” across the world.
WHM: What would you say to a church who isn’t yet using media about its value?
BlueBoxMedia: The best way I could describe it is simply look at how Jesus taught. He almost always talked in parables or “stories” that related to the people he was talking too. Jesus used relevant content to preach the Gospel so that people could grasp what He was talking about. That’s what I love about WHM. WHM provides relevant content for everyone in all different situations and styles. Content that will help preach the Gospel in a unique way.
WHM: What is your favorite movie(s)
BlueBoxMedia:My favorite movie(s) .. now this is an unbelievably hard question! There are so many good movies out there. Recently I watched “Inception”and I thought that was a brilliantly told story! I don’t know..I like a lot of movies, like most people I don’t think I can nail it to just one.
