It’s a bit difficult to create a hard-and-fast list of rules for the best worship background videos. Every church is different, and a worship background video that works in one setting may flop in another setting. Much of determining the best worship video for your church will come from understanding and responding to your church culture. Nonetheless, there are a few guidelines that we have observed as defining the best worship background videos.
Features of a successful worship background videos
- A good worship background video is not distracting. Church videos can be fun and easy to create, not to mention enjoyable to use in worship. But, fun as they are, they ought not to be distracting. A worship background video that has excessive movement, garish designs, or curious images will not enhance your worship; instead, they may be distracting.
- A good worship background video provides visual boundaries. A worship background video is intended to focus people’s attention upon the worship lyrics. To this end, good worship background videos have “visual boundaries,” somewhat like subtle borders. Whether it’s darkened edges or a visual focal point near the side or center of the background video, the worship video makes it obvious where you’re supposed to look.
- A good worship background video features space for lyrics. The whole point of a worship background video is to display worship lyrics. Thus, a worship background video has plenty of space for adding your worship lyrics. This feature must not be overlooked. Nothing is worse than having to strain one’s eyes in order to see the text, either because it’s too small, too light, or too dark.
