It's largely subjective, though the rules of thumb are pretty well agreed-on.
My church, for example, has ridiculously low ceilings. That makes really only the middle third of the screens usable for lyrics: the bottom third is obstructed by people's heads, and the top third is obstructed for many seats by the main speaker arrays. With room size and screen size considered, that makes for a practical limit of about 3 lines, maybe four in some cases, of text, being about two "lines" of a song. From there, it's all about logically breaking the lyrics down into screens and lines to be the most natural.
Too much text on the screen is information overload and the congregation can get lost. Too little and the words aren't up long enough to read. That's true for lyrics, scripture, anything involving words.
For sermon graphics, the Midnight Oil guys among others pioneered the use of imagery rather than text, hopefully signaling an end to the era of "bad sermon Powerpoints" full of flying bullet points.
Loved the post! I like technology and talk about it. This has led the senior pastor to ask me to look into designing a pre-post video production area for our church. Basically within 1 year he would like to be livestreaming or webcasting but also before that develop promo vids, bumpers and such for events and announcements etc.
He asked me to come up with a list of equipment, in the process I quickly found myself overwhelmed and thinking "maybe I shouldn't talk about technology so much!"
All that to say. How do i break the cycle before I get in it? who do i call?
I live in a rural area that doesn't have a lot of professionals in this area, at least not to my knowledge. Can anyone recommend something? Frostburg, MD 21532 is the place i live.
thanks in advance!
