WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE ‘WHAT IS YWAM?’ VIDEO?
We, the Rise Campaign, made the ‘What is YWAM?’ video as an afterthought for a U.S. mobilization tour. Little did we know that it would be viewed thousands of times over (~155,000 times on Facebook, ~12,000 times on various YouTube Channels). Many of you have expressed interest in having it to use for your own ministry or campus.
WHY ARE YOU SHARING IT?
One of the core values of Rise is Partnership. As you’ve almost certainly witnessed, ministry is often saturated with godless competition and closed handedness. This is an effort for us to move in the opposite spirit and is a small way that we can partner with you.
WHAT LANGUAGES CAN I GET IT IN?
We currently have ‘What is YWAM?’ in English and French. We are hoping to translate into Spanish in the near future as well.
CAN I HOST THIS ON MY OWN SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES?
Yes, but you will need to buy certain licenses. To create ‘What is YWAM?’ we had to pay for 4 licenses: 3 stock images and 1 motion graphic project. You will have to purchase these same licenses to legally use this video on your own platforms. We do not make money from this, but the creators of the licensed content do. The total cost for all 4 licenses is $36 (USD). After purchasing the licenses, email email@example.com with ‘YWAM Video for Ministry’ in the subject line, attaching a copy of the License Certificates and you will promptly be sent the link for download.
WHAT IF OUR MINISTRY DOESN’T HAVE $36 (USD)?
If you can’t afford to purchase the licenses, you can embed or link to the video hosted directly on http://youtube.com/ywam or http://facebook.com/YouthWithAMission but can’t host it on your own video hosting platforms (YouTube, Vimeo, etc).
WHAT IF I JUST WANT TO SHOW IT AT MY CHURCH?
YWAM’s communication team has acquired the necessary licenses for you to download this video and use it at live YWAM events for free, without purchasing additional licenses. If you are interested in using this for such an event, email: firstname.lastname@example.org with the “YWAM Video for Event” in the subject line. You will be sent the link for download within a few days. You cannot use this file for anything else without purchasing the licenses, if you do-so you will be in violation of international licensing laws.
HOW DO I PUT OUR WEB ADDRESS IN THE VIDEO?
You will be sent two versions of ‘What is YWAM?’ both of which have blank screens at the end. The first one is Maximum Resolution, which will allow you to add your link in video editing software and re-render it with your custom web link. The second version is compressed especially for YouTube, if you do not have video editing software you can use the annotation/comment features in YouTube Creators Studio to add your web address. A third option is to simply leave the blank screen blank and use the description features on various social media platforms to direct people to your website.
