Super Charged Up!

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Wow it was an amazing 4 days of soaking in inspiration and information! 66 delegates and about 30 trainers, helpers and speakers came together at the Charge Up! 2008 Conference last Thursday till Sunday. The excitement was contagious, as all pride was put aside, and we learnt from each other, whether young or old. I was personally impressed at the quality of the work that was presented at the end of the conference. Some delegates have had no experience at all, not even touching a video camera, but together with the rest of the team, came up with videos that looked pretty good! The photography stream had a blast of a time printing their photos and sticking them in albums. What I admired about them was that they encouraged and willingly shared information with each other as they viewed each other’s work. The delegates from the web stream came up with their own website design and managed to put it into html code. Amazing!

I learnt a lot during this Conference, not just about media skills, but also from the speakers. What Pastor Kenneth shared on Friday spoke to me, and I am challenged to pursue my dreams, to believe that whatever God placed in my heart will come to pass. It is, as Pastor Kenneth says, not easy to walk out of God’s will if your heart is constantly seeking Him in the first place. The film “The Killing Fields” that was shown on Sunday by Dr Goh really touched my heart too. I felt convicted that as Christians, we have an important message to bring to the people. With God working through us, the images that we create can be so powerful, to change hearts and minds. Now that we have the skills, what are we doing with it? What kind of images are we creating? What message are we highlighting?

I hope that all of you were inspired at this Conference too. Do post comments here to share about what God has taught you in this conference, and how the conference charged you up.

Open Sessions at Charge Up!

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

There’ll be seven sessions during the conference that’ll be open to everyone - the four Power Up! sessions in the mornings, MediaShowcase Night on Friday, and the streams’ screening & sharing times on Saturday & Sunday. Please refer to the schedule for exact times.

This is specially for those media leaders & artists out there who may not be into going for workshops this season of life, or may feel a little dry or even burnt out, or just in need of a good boost in the right direction. Do join us for any or all of the 7 sessions to simply be blessed! Drop us a line to say you’re coming, if you can. =)

We’re going to have 4 really excellent speakers to speak life into our lives during the Power Up! sessions - Pr Kenneth Chin on Thursday, Pr Sandra Chin on Friday, Mr Goh Keat Peng on Saturday & Dr Goh Chee Leong on Sunday. And for most of the worship sessions, we have the privilege of having with us members of 1 Accord Ministry. We expect that the time these servants of God spend with us will be really priceless. So don’t miss out on it… come and be charged up!

Hi all,

I just found this online. Trying to find out more now and see if its worth
going. More info


Orson Welles said, “Everything you need to know about filmmaking can be learned
in two
to three days.” Mr. Simens agrees. The 2-Day Film School™ takes you through the
process of making, marketing and financing your movie in one weekend.

Dov S-S Simens’ 2-Day Film School condenses four years of film school theory and
education into two days of essential and practical facts and information. It’s
an intensive
weekend designed for anyone from first-time filmmakers to industry

On Day-1 “Make Your Movie”, Mr Simens shows you how to write, direct, shoot and
produce your first feature film whether your budget is US$5,000, US$500,000 or

On Day-2 “Sell Your Movie”, Mr. Simens teaches you how to finance, distribute
and profit
with global sales exceeding US$200 million. Topics covered include marketing,
festivals, distribution deals, foreign sales, cable deals, and theatrical
revenues… and
much, much more.

Proclaiming the Gospel with Media

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

Tony Anthony - Taming the TigerLast night, Grace and I attended a talk by Tony Anthony (he was World Kung Fu Champion for three years running) a charismatic man of God. He has moved up from being a prisoner in jail, to becoming a prisoner of Christ Jesus. He’s got an awesome testimony to share. If you can make it to SIB on Friday, 6 Apr 2007 (8pm and 10:30pm), or Sedaya College on Saturday or Sunday (7 & 8 Apr 2007) AND bring non-Christians, I urge you to go.

Anyhow, this man used multimedia powerfully in his talk. Two videos were shown by him, the first was about Dick and Rick Hoyt - illustrating the love of a father for his disabled son. It surely draws a parallel between God’s love for us. This was a very good visual aid used aptly, and not out of necessity or “cool-factorness”.

Read more about it here. The video is viewable below.

And the second was related to giving the altar call. It’s a video that was created by and you can see how it’s used here.

Broadcast Asia 2007

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Hi All,

The Broadcast Asia Expo is on again in Singapore from the 19-22 of June.

From their website:
“Asia’s most successful broadcasting and digital multimedia technology event, BroadcastAsia has been the chosen sales and marketing platform for industry leaders who has the Asia Pacific market as their focus. From media content creation, media content management, to media content delivery, BroadcastAsia showcases the latest digital multimedia technology, professional equipment and services from over 800 exhibiting companies from all over the world! An all encompassing trade event, BroadcastAsia is a one-stop sourcing ground for broadcasters, production and post-production companies and has remained as the buyers’ choice event in Asia Pacific to source, purchase and network.”

Its an opportunity to see what’s new and the meet people. I met the inventor of the Flying Cam there the last time.
I’ll be in Singapore from the 21st to 24th of June. Hopefully we can get together, roam the halls, visit some churches, and then go out and eat like last time. Registration is open.

See you all there.

The Charge Up! Prayer

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

We pray that you’ll have strength to stick it out over the long haul - not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over to joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright & beautiful that He has for us.

(Colossians 1:11&12, The Message)
