Videos in the vernacular
We have resources to help you overlay your language into many different titles. Due to copyright issues, each video project needs to be initiated and approved through our International Media Project Coordinator. Our pre-made video shells allow recording specialists to synchronize lines of script with the video timeline. Also, in considering a video for your language project, we suggest first evaluating the material to see if it fits in with the target culture. It is essential that you read through the IMS Shell Video Manual as you consider a Scripture based video.
