These two young writers, one on camera and as the production whiz and the other as the front person have produced a '1 min' video on their experiences of the ARPA conference: www.bushorchestra.com
Belinda and Laura have also written articles for Christian Today on different aspects of what was learnt and could be applied to Christian media at the ARPA conference:
Belinda Croft's was titled: International Aid in Cynical Times - ARPA Conference, New Zealand 2012 – HotHouse speaker Seth Le Leu
Laura Veloso's article was titled: HotHouse presentation by Martin Lloyd
Press Service International's parent ministry, Well-Being Australia requested Belinda Coft to produce two short videos, a "1 min" video and a longer "4 min" video.
Each month the Well-Being Australia web site www.bushorchestra.com hosts a "1 min" monthly news video and one of the requests to Belinda Croft was to produce the October "1 min" news video on the ARPA conference.
The longer version, the "4 min" video on ARPA is for the Australian Missionary News IPTV which is housed on the bushorchestra web site along with a YouTube channel. That video is in production now and will be uploaded and promoted in due course.
Belinda Croft is not new video production. Belinda has produced a number of church videos along with family videos celebrating a wide range of celebrations including her father, Peter Scotland's 60th birthday.
This new production, the "1 min" October news video captures the spirit and essence of ARPA 2012. The video is introduced by Laura Veloso who goes on to narrate throughout the short presentation.
It shows bits of Wellington, the conference, speakers, the awards and a whole lot more eased into the '1 minute' time slot. More so, Laura speaks of the journey of each Christian writer – it's enough to whet one's appetite to attend next year's ARPA conference in Melbourne - the first weekend of September. .
