Shooter's Comments:

I shot photos for the newspaper article and a video all at the same time while covering a gospel concert at Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church Sunday. I put one video camera on a tripod to capture a whole song. I then shot video at different angles and grab some quick still images, too.

As with any music videos the hard part was matching up the second video from different angles to the main video. Mouths and action have to match. Even people clapping along with the music had to match.

Unfortunately, I was unable to provide the whole song because our website doesn't handle videos over 4 minutes.
