I saw the movie Friday night with 3 friends. Only one of the four of us were moved to tears--the one who didn't know the stories well. I agree that this movie may not be used effectively as an evangelism tool, but for a much different reason than she stated. I was talking to a close friend about this just a few days ago, and C.S. Lewis knew it when he wrote the Narnia books. Creating the obligation to feel is the easiest way to stop someone from feeling. When we use this movie (or book) as an evangelism tool, we rob it of much of it's splendor. Rather than helping transfer feelings of Aslan's sacrafice, we help transfer numbness about Christ's sacrafice. http://www.epm.org/articles/writing_narnia.html As for the comments on Christmas, it amazes me how many people seem to care more about when we worship than what we worship. The 25th of December was probably not the day of Christ's birth. Col 2:16-17 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Brad

Matt, To keep the output quality high, you do need a clean input. A recording off of a decent DV camera should be fine. We are actually encoding the web video from a DVD source, rather than the original HD tapes. You should be safe as long as you can burn your video to DVD and it looks sharp on a computer monitor.
