The Media Moment
Summary: The Media Moment is a podcast designed to serve as a resource to anyone and everyone interested in the effective creation and implementation of multimedia in a ministry setting, with a special focus on churches within the Salvation Army.
The Media Moment comes back this week, with some helpful information on the VHS-C format, as well as ways to do green screen matte shots on the cheap. We also discuss the podcast's move to an as-needed format. So if you need us, email us!
For your listening pleasure this week, The Media Moment recaps the recent activities of Josh and Richard. Listen and you may find some similarities to your own sound system, and ways you can improve it. Also, a shout-out to the Mesa, AZ Media Club, and good news for those interested in purchasing MediaShout.
Get ready for some complaining this week, as we whine and moan about how busy we've been lately. But also included are some helpful tips on projector lenses, and common projector problems.
Don't listen to this podcast! At least if you don't want to be implicated in a potential felony. For this week, The Media Moment provides you with information on how to rip video clips from a DVD for use as sermon illustrations, etc. Richard also reviews his new Apple TV.

The Media Moment dries out this week, as we recover from and recap our media experiences at Boot Camp. Sprinkled in are tips for running media in adverse weather (and power) conditions, and for some new devices on the market that make recording for podcasts much cheaper and easier.
Aloha from The Media Moment! This week Josh podcasts from the white sandy beach of Kailua, Oahu, making Richard insanely jealous. We also discuss our current media teaching gigs (including the one that brings us both to the Aloha State next week), and how to properly tape down wires and cables for your next event. Mahalo...
The Media Moment turns 100! Well, not exactly. But we do celebrate the 100th episode of this humble podcast by driving around the beautiful streets of Hawaii. That's right, The Media Moment goes mobile this week, as we podcast about lessons learned the hard way in Hawaii, and what brings us to this special place to begin with. Aloha, and mahalo for listening!
The wily Richard Brown turns up at the Media Moment studios this week with his bag of tricks to share! Listen as he reveals how to set up a high-speed wireless hotspot anywhere you happen to need one (including the Rose Parade route), and how we're going to manage to record 10 different workshop sessions at BootCamp all at once.
In our post-Christmas episode this week, find out how best to get the multimedia gifts you want from Santa next year, why testing your workflow is important, and yet another reason why Microsoft is Scrooge.
Merry Christmas from The Media Moment! This week we discuss a terrific Christmas present that's been offered from THQ to any Western Territory unit in need of a good, simple, portable PA system, Richard rants (again) about DRM, and we compare notes on children's programming.

We're back! Did you miss us? Well, enough did that let us know, so here's another heaping helping of media courtesy of The Media Moment. This week, we give various excuses for our absence, as well as provide handy tips for using video with text in MediaShout, where you can go to get actual clips of actual Hollywood movies (legally!), and an easy way to make "backup" video clips from DVD's.

On a very spooky episode of The Media Moment this week, we discuss our current business in the Northwest Division, the benefits of the Anchor Beacon system, and why Halloween is a multimedia friendly holiday. Link: http://www.anchoraudio.com/beacon.php
This week our travels take us to the great Northwest, as we complete a couple of site visits, and talk with IT guru and brother of Richard Brown, David Brown.
Saludos amigos! This week on The Media Moment, Richard and Josh recap their adventures in media over the last four days at the congress held in Mexico City, celebrating the 70th anniversary of The Salvation Army in Mexico. Listen as we describe how to transport an entire multicamera shoot and projection system via checked baggage, audio difficulties that can be easily overcome, and how to successfully navigate Mexico City traffic.
Richard's hosting chair is usurped this week, as frequent Media Moment guest Jim Sparks joins Josh to discuss how we can do a better job in marketing our church and organizations.
