I’m against doing overly complex things for people, when it can be done more simply. For example, the traditional FiCS slide show. It’s just way too complex, and extra trouble for it. At the YAG dinner last year, the youth group teacher Steve did this slide show that took like 30 minutes for him to prepare. Just very simple and basic. What’s wrong with that? Why digitize video? The cost/benefit ratio is poor.
In any case, I’m in favor of just setting up a camcorder, playing a stereo in the background, and then placing pictures one by one in front of it. Dave thinks we should go further. Just play music at the appreciation night, and have some guy (or girl) in the front holding up the pictures for everyone to see.
Anyway, too much work is lame. That’s my opinion.
