Is Excellence a Dirty Word? (Part 2)

So previously we discussed the need for Excellence, not perfection. So now what is Excellence?
Some might say that if we remain invisible to the congregation for the service we have achieved it. Not drawing attention to the media or the Media Ministry is a great start.
In the visual world this might include: Menus on the IMAG screen, Bad Camera Shots, Wrong Words, long pauses before the videos plays. We want the audience to see the screens but not think about what it took to get it there or what should be there.
In the audio world; no feedback, mics on in time, loud enough to hear, not too loud that it hurts the ears, decent mix.
So we know we are doing a good job when nobody notices. When we get no complaints we have done our job well…. But this is only half of doing media in excellence. This is basically a list of what not to do, what about what we DO? Remember, part of our purpose as a Media Ministry is to help create an environment that is conducive to worship, to help encourage and amplify worship. We will look at the DO aspects of Excellence Next Week.
