SOUTH BARRINGTON, IL — Sound Devices‘ 744T digital recorder recently helped Willow Creek Community Church illustrate its AIDS relief and prevention efforts in Africa. As part of the church‘s service during the weekend of World AIDS day (December 1-2, 2007), the church presented a 25-minute video update of the resources and support it has supplied to World Relief for its work in the African country of Malawi.
The video was shot documentary-style with interviews of local church leaders and members who are a part of the relief efforts. With the interview set-ups varying and a basic audio setup of a stereo shotgun mic and two wireless lavalier systems at the crew‘s disposal, Sound Devices‘ 744T became a versatile and effective option for recording audio rather than capturing audio on the cameras themselves. more
