IMAG Gone Amuck :|: Shhhh...

I'm working on a project this week which has an interesting concept. From what we've seen so far, it will be absolutely hilarious.

Picture this: Guy walks up on stage to lead the congregation in worship. His face is on IMAG. As he begins to play, we cut away to a wider shot of the congregation, and then cut back to him. However, the last cut is not actually to a camera, but to a tape of him that we've recorded. The tape of him breaks away from what he's actually doing on stage. This IMAG conscience/alter ego begins to comment on and criticize his ultra-horrible worship-leading.

We'll see if it works...and if it's actually funny.

Has anyone done anything like this before? Any suggestions on how to make it work well?

P.S. If you're coming to WorshipGod06, don't tell anyone about this. It's our little secret.

Adrian Warnock blew your cover! (That's how I stumbled upon your blog, BTW.)

Personally, I think that sounds pretty sweet, and I'd love to see how it turned out! Any chance you'll slip some footage up on YouTube or something like that?

Adrian Warnock caught me! I guess I should have left off the link.

Oh, well. I think it may have spoiled the surprise for a few faithful readers of my blog (thanks for being out there!) However, thanks to a funny script, it didn't lose the humor.

I was up in video land when we did the skit, so I couldn't really tell what the audience reaction was like, but everyone I talked to seemed to think it was great.

I'll see if the author will let me post the video.
