Our team always enjoys selecting the visual media and building looks for the worship sets at Echo Conference, and this year was no exception. Today we thought it’d be fun to share our media playlist from Echo 2012 so you can see what we used and where to get it.
From the photos included with this post you can see that our venue, Watermark Community Church, uses two IMAG screens for lyrics as well as back and side walls for imagery/atmospheric projection. Some of the resources below were used on the IMAG screens behind lyrics while others were projected across the back and side walls, so just assume that some of the busier or more active files were used as atmosphere.
With that qualification out of the way, here’s what we used. You’ll have to do some clicking, but a little clicking never hurt anyone. Enjoy:

Well, what did you think? You may notice that we used all Igniter and Graceway (our sister companies) resources for Echo this year, and that’s true. Here’s why:
- Familiarity — We created this stuff, after all.
- Style — As you might imagine, the stuff we’ve created fits our style/aesthetic/taste.
- Budget — Believe it or not, we didn’t have an unlimited budget to purchase or create new media resources, so we relied on what we had free access to.
- Customization — Again, because we created this stuff, we had access to project files when we wanted to make a tweak related to file size, color, composition, and so on.
There are so many wonderful producers of media resources out there (just check WorshipHouse for proof), but we kept Echo media in house this year for those reasons. Next year we may decide to do the exact opposite! But until then …
That’s it for our playlist — what about yours? Do you have any favorite images or loops to use in a worship setting these days? If so, share them with the rest of the class!
