Spanish VBS Choreography!

Did you know we provide a choreography DVD for our Spanish customers? We began producing a Spanish choreography video for VBS 2010: Saddle Ridge Ranch. I’m so thankful to Angel Ortiz and Elizabeth Works, fellow LifeWay employees, who always are on set to interpret! Otherwise, I would have no idea what’s being said! It gets comical at times.

Constanza, our terrific on-camera host, listens to the English music and watches the choreography DVD. Then, she learns the Spanish songs and alters the choreography as needed. (Sometimes, there is no Spanish word that exactly matches the English word, so the songs and choreography have to be altered.)

The DVD is available in the Spanish Sampler (EBV 2013 Muestrario en español), product number 005490073, $69.99. Be sure to share this news with your Spanish congregations!

Behind the Music in español

!Hola mis amigos! Hello my friends! Great news guys! We’re finally finishing up production of Amazing Wonders Aviation! WOO HOO! It’s crazy/busy around here but even more so for those responsible for translating VBS into Spanish! One of many things that has to be produced is the Spanish music video. Filming was last week so yours truly slapped on my photog hat and snapped a few behind the scene shots for you. Enjoy!!

Constanza Zurita—our "amazing" on-camera host—gets camera-ready with Vanessa Sellers—make-up artist extraordinaire.

Constanza dreams of someday singing in the LifeWay choir! jk

Our on-camera host Constanza Zurita and Jeff Slaughter—what a great team!

Our friend and fellow VBS teammate Lynne Norris produced the EBV (akaVBS) Spanish choreography/music video along with Tim Cox, director/Camera operator and Steve Fralick, audio/lighting. Lynne was also joined by Alyssa Goins from LifeWay’s Music Department (VBS music wouldn’t get done without her!) and Angel Ortiz who is in charge of translating ALL of our Spanish products!

It was fun to watch as they worked up new motions. Yes! New motions! Why you ask? Well, it seems some words—even words used in our title—do no translate in Spanish. So new words equals new motions.

"It's Maravillas INCREI´BLES de la Aviacio´n!"

Constanza spent a lot of time and research finding just the right motions for the translation. Kudos to Konstanza!

cooool—motion blurrr

Hasta luego mis amigos! …see you later my friends!
