As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed on Sunday afternoon, I stumbled across a neat video from Centerpoint Church. I noticed that it had some cool effects and at the end of the video I discovered the awesome tool that they had used to create it.
Cameo is a new app that allows you to create fun, great-looking videos right on your iPhone. It comes with all of the effects and tools that you need to produce videos that are both interesting and creative. It’s a lot like Instagram for mobile video, but much more powerful. The best part? You can even collaborate with friends and wirelessly pull video from their iPhones to add to your project. The possibilities are endless on how you could put this to work in your church. Imagine deploying a team of iPhone-videographers to highlight the various aspects of your next big event, youth activity, or Sunday morning service. This is also great for volunteers because they can use their own phones to join in and the app is FREE.
Keep in mind that this is designed to create videos specifically for social networking—not major productions. It’s more of a fun way to highlight your events than a professional solution. However, you can get very creative with it and it’s a cool way to get people involved.
Here is their video describing how to use the app:

Have you tried Cameo? Do you have any other ideas on how to use this app in a church setting?
