About Friar Tech
Welcome to Friar Tech, a Vlog for Catholics about Vlogging
See our introductory video – Coming Soon
This vlog is an effort to start a colaborative effort for developing the best technology for using multimedia on the internet. It is an out growth or our effort to start our vlog, Air Maria.
We think that TV is the key media to help explain and spread Catholic Doctrine and Marian devotion in a way that is popular, clear and quick enough to match the distracted, confused, fast paced, world of today. We further see that all TV is moving to the Internet and this is because all the financial barriers to starting TV have all but disappeared with the advent of the high capacity internet and, at least on the face of it, all the technology is very accessable. However, to actually use this technology and do it well is rather difficult and so is making the process of filming, editing, publishing and managing the website all work effortlessly and routinely. So as we have developed the techniques and work flow we have learned much and figure that there are many others out there who could use this information and since we are writing down all this info for the sake of getting all our other friaries up to speed, we thought it would be a good idea to post it all on the internet. And thus we started the Friar Tech Vlog about vlogging.
So, The goal of Friar Tech is in line with the goal of the general Air Maria initiative, to spread devotion to Mary, but in this case to help other like minded people join in on this concerted effort of monumental importance.
Please keep coming to Friar Tech to learn how to vlog along with us and give us lots of feed back of good resources and tips and tricks that you’ve discovered and to help us out in the many instances when we get stuck ourselves. Christianizing the web will have to be a community effort including the task of developing the techniques to do it best.
And, most of all, put this knowledge into action by establishing your own vlog (its easy – video) and start vlogging for the Immaculate, in the words of St. Maximilian Kolbe, master of high tech marian apostolates, “All for the Immaculate”
