A bit about me

Hi there! I’m Sam DeZeeuw. Fun fact about me: I love Root Beer! And I’ve started a root beer bottle collection..! My wife thinks its goofy.

Speaking of my beautiful wife, Becca and I got married in October 2017 and we both are passionate about volunteering in the Media Ministry at our church! I currently work full time for the MLB team, the St. Louis Cardinals doing Scoreboard Video Production. Go Cards!

I created SmartDeZign.church because I wake up every day thinking about creating videos. It’s an obsession. But I have a huge desire to use that obsession to for God’s glory and to grow his kingdom!

So I created SmartDeZign to help other churches do the same! I understand the power of video and I want to help you use video to reach people for Jesus!

Church Video Studio Equipment

Nikon D5300 DSLR

For me, this is my every-day camera. It certainly does not break the bank for the quality of video you get. It works decently well in low light. Shoots up to 60 frames per second at 1080p, allowing you to get nice slow motion shots!

Benro Fluid Head Tripod

When looking for a quality tripod for video, look for a “Fluid Head” tripod to get smooth pans/tilts. This is the Benro S2, one of the lower models on Benros fluid head lineup but will still make your pan/tilt shots silky smooth at a lower price point.

Shotgun Condenser Microphone

This shot gun microphone won’t break the bank and offers great quality for the price. Pair this with the external audio recorder, like the Zoom H4n and get yourself a great setup!
