Event DV by Tim Siglin
By the time you read this column, July will be upon us, bringing picnics, fireworks, andÃ¢â‚¬â€if, like me, you grew up in a small townÃ¢â‚¬â€a chance to ride the ladder truck or climb a 20-foot pole and grab money from the top. July also brings with it a group of activities that houses of worship use as summer teaching and entertainment tools for children. For some it takes on the form of week-long events like Ã¢â‚¬Å“Vacation Bible SchoolÃ¢â‚¬ or camps; for others itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a series of hikes, swims, or other outdoor activities. Whatever the case, these activities need to be captured, edited, and displayed after the event or at seasonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s end.
