After sharing my top ten Christmas videos last year and the year before, I thought it was about time I put together a list of the top Easter videos. After watching many many videos, I’ve hopefully found ten films that are not only great for sharing on social media but could be played in church too.
1. Good Friday Live
This video from Christians in Sport, is a clever telling of the Easter story through BCC news style footage, making it able to relate to how we consume news nowadays
2. The Gospel
An incredibly powerful, visually stunning film, showing the reason behind Jesus’ crucifixion, dying for our sins. This video might also be useful at Pentecost.
4. This is Easter
Using text and computer generated graphics, this is another short and simple video which breaks the story down to the important message behind it.
5. Good Friday (Easter Tilt Shift)
Tilt Shift is a video effect which makes everything look like a moving model village. In this video, Church groups from Dursley in Gloucestershire carry a large cross to the top of Cam Peak, a steep hill on the outskirts of the town, to commemorate Good Friday, all to the tune of Jerusalem.
This video uses lightbulbs to explain the story of the cross, and does it effectively. The high quality video, mixed with a great spoken word piece over the top is very creative and very watchable.
7. Egg: An Easter Meditation
A nice piece of simple poetry, telling the Easter story, combining it with the symbolism of the eggs we all eat on Easter Sunday.
Written by Glen Scrivener with his expected cleverness with words, and performed by rapper Guvna B. This animation stands out from the crowd and makes you want to watch it again and again.
9. Easter Address – The Gospel
Short but powerful. This film was created to begin an Easter service which means it’s the a great opener to a bigger conversation.
10. Light of Life
Another powerful film, mixing old footage with a simple spoken word piece which combined creates a unique telling of the Easter story.
