My church family wanted to do something really special for our pastor for his retirement. Most of us had been coming to hear his sermons for years, and we knew that we were going to miss him. He was still going to come listen to his son-in-law preach, so we would still see him often. Still, we wanted to do something really special, which is why we contacted Big 3 video production. We wanted to see how much it would cost to have them create a video of at least five or so minutes highlighting just what he means to us.
When they gave us the price quote, we were relieved because we honestly were not sure if it was going to be within our budget. It was though, and we got busy with getting everything together that they would need. We wanted to have quite a few pictures of him since he has always been prone to doing silly things, including dressing up in various costumes to get his point across. We also had many people do short video snippets of their favorite memory of Pastor Joe that would be sprinkled throughout the video.
We had to decide if we wanted any animation in the video, but it really wasn’t a hard choice. Pastor Joe loves cartoons, so we knew that he would enjoy seeing himself in cartoon form. It really was amazing, everything they were able to do to make this an incredible video. We were able to show it right after Pastor Joe gave his last sermon, since everyone knew that we were going to have a retirement luncheon for him. It was such a success that everyone wanted copies of it. The best part was seeing the smile and tears on Pastor’s face, seeing just how much he is loved by all of us.
