“The Other Side of Ministry” Documentary

June 24, 2014

For quite some time I have had the desire to create a documentary. I don’t want to create one just for the sake of saying “I’ve produced a documentary” but to have a real world impact with what I record, edit and ultimately release. After the work I’ve done with the testimonial Building the Ark I realize that there is an opportunity to create something even bigger. Through out my years working with different churches I have realized that there is a group of individuals who are crucial to the ministry of the church but who’s stories often go unnoticed. I’m speaking specifically of minister’s spouse. These are the people who stand side by side, supporting their spouses’ ministries through thick and thin and seeing another side of the Gospel that we don’t often see. By producing “The Other Side of Ministry” I am giving the spouses an opportunity to share their joys, pains, triumphs and heartache with the rest of us who may not know what they go through on a regular basis. I have heard the stories from a few spouses over the years and I know that they have amazing stories to tell and these stories should be need to be told. I have heard from missionaries who have lost their husbands to accidents in far off places but they continued the work that was started working through immense pain. I have heard stories of victory through faith during supremely difficult times! These stories need to be shared to encourage others and I want to bring these stories out.

The work has begun as 2 letters have been drafted. The first letter goes out to various ministerial spouses around the DMV (Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia area) where the intial round of interviews will take place. I have not placed a cap on the number of spouses I will interview but I hope to start out with at least 10 individuals from as many denominations as possible.  The second letter will go out to those who may be interested in donating to the documentary to help defray the various costs that arise when making films. A crowd sourcing page will be created to give people the opportunity to support the blessing that I am praying that this documentary provides to those who will be touched by the testimonies that will be recorded.

I plan for “The Other Side of Ministry” to be more than just another YouTube video. I intend on entering the final product into film festivals as a means of advertising and then preparing it for distribution across any medium I can get it into. This is the ministry that I have been called to and  plan to follow it to the best of my ability.

If you are interested in being a part of “The Other Side of Ministry” either as an on-screen participant or a donor please contact me through Twitter” (@rbaker_spaceage-llc.com) or on our Facebook page. I hope to hear from you!

Important Information

April 17, 2013

So SpaceAge Consulting has decided to take on a project unlike anything we have done before.

We have chosen to work with Chosen Vessels (www.globalvessels.org) and travel with them to their upcoming missionary trip to Arusha, Tanzania to support Havilah Village Children’s Orphanage. Our project would involve traveling with the group in July of 2013 and documenting the work being done to support those children at the orphanage.

We are currently raising money for the travel, equipment and insurance cost that would be involved in such an endeavor. Not only will this be a chance to do something that we haven’t done before (film a documentary on location) but it would give us the opportunity to do some good as we highlight a need that is real and bring attention to those less fortunate than ourselves.

If you are interested in donating to the project please let us know. If you have any suggestions on equipment we could/should bring feel free to provide that information as well. Currently I am looking into using the Canon XF100 along with testing out the Canon 6D and a 24-105 lens. I understand that may seem very Canon heavy but it is what I’m used to and I know what works and doesn’t work. I would hate to travel to Africa and discover the equipment I have cannot do the job we need it to do.

While I would love to work with Red equipment (or the Canon C300) it is just not within the budget. I would consider a Blackmagic Cinema Cam as their Production cam will not be available in time for the trip.
