Nonfiction videos impact us the most when "they show us the results of action or inaction, and then challenge us to emulate (or flee from) what we've seen onscreen" says Ryan Hamm in his introduction to this resource. "In church, these kinds of videos are incredibly useful."

The kinds of nonfiction videos covered in this resource include documentaries, person-on-the-street interviews, and teaching videos. You'll find great insights on how to craft these from people who have been making ministry-related videos for years.
