Christmas at the tree farm!
For Emmanuel Community Church’s 2022 Christmas Eve services, our creative team decided to open the service with a music video of FOR KING & COUNTRY’s arrangement of Angels We Have Hear on High, which features a large sounding drums with an accordion and other fun instruments. For this piece, we put together a team of two vocalists, a guitarist, accordion, violin, and trombone players, as well as a drummer. We found a Christmas tree farm in Fort Wayne who was willing to let us shoot the video there. However, with no electricity at this location, we decided to record all audio at the church, then pack up and move to the farm.
With a location scout of the area already done, we knew roughly where we wanted to shoot this video. We setup in a small open space surrounded by trees in each direction, offering a beautiful visual scene. We has three Canon cinema cameras for this shoot alongside two drones. This variety allowed us to get some unique shots and this special location matched the song excellently.
