Celebrating 10 Year Anniversary of the “You’re a Uni-What?” Video

This coming UUA General Assembly conference is the 10 year anniversary of the “You’re a Uni-What?!” video.  You heard me.  Ten years…

The Rev. Amy Freedman and I filmed the interviews at General Assembly 2007. Our segments were filmed in our living room in front of a projector screen.

That was BEFORE social media. BEFORE smartphones.  And Youtube was just a baby….

What amazes me most is that despite the video’s age and lower resolution, people are still learning from it.

When I am guest preaching and meet first time visitors, they often ask, “Have we met? You look familiar.” And almost every time it is because the night before they were checking out UU videos on Youtube! I’ve come to deeply appreciate the potential of video to work for us online 24/7.

What might your congregation do with video? There are so many possibilities!

You can find a list of ideas on my video making tips page. Thanks to smartphones, you don’t need to hire a professional. You just need to make a commitment to experimenting with sharing your message.
