Each Christmas GOD TV’s Creative Services Department, headed by Charlie Bown, devises a series of festive idents. These are short video sequences that air in between broadcasts to identify the channel. This year the focus of our Christmas programming is our Christmas Challenge of Pray, Serve, Give.
This communicates a feeling of togetherness during the holidays with the message – Together We Are Family. See some of the idents below and see other versions on GOD TV during the Christmas season. You will also hear the catchy signature song, ‘Holiest of Nights’ sung by Abigail Alton who is a talented British singer. Bob Bradley, who is an award-winning composer produced the sound track. It was recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London.
Filmed in Devon, UK GOD TV’s 2017 Christmas idents feature a full cast representative of the GOD TV Family. We recorded some of the shots in homes in Plymouth as well as at the Christmas market in the grounds of Exeter Cathedral. In addition to Charlie and Leah’s direction, other members of the GOD TV Creative Services team in Plymouth have contributed including Callum Taylor who is the editor. GOD TV’s sound engineer, Richard Hargrave mixed the sound.
The GOD TV Creative Services team conceptualised and wrote the indents as a joint effort and they feature GOD TV staff, their families and friends, with everyone pooling their resources illustrating togetherness in a dynamic way.
“We designed the idents to be relatable to everyday life and relevant to our partners / viewers,” says Leah Beecham who directed and produced the campaign. “Moreover, we wanted to be mindful to draw on the true Christian meaning of Christmas with a song chosen which has a modern spin on the birth of Christ.”
Let us know what you think of the idents!
We think we have a talented team at GOD TV who are using their God-given gifts to the fullest. We’d love to hear what you think about the idents though. Please share your thoughts here on the blog or via social media.
We hope you love the idents and wish you a wonderful Christmas. Together We Are Family!
