It’s hard to overstate how difficult it is to get the professional look and feel InFocus achieved, and without the resources routinely employed by other studios.

December saw the last news bulletins being produced by Adventist Record magazine’s sister TV program, Record InFocus. However, episodes will continue to be produced featuring interviews and other segments from the program’s eight-year back-catalogue.
“Since 2008 we’ve produced more than 400 episodes of InFocus,” said host and producer Kent Kingston. “That’s more than Seinfeld, but not as many as The Simpsons.” For many Adventists, the HopeChannel and Australian Christian Channel program was a weekly staple and the news segment will be missed.
Fresh start: A new year brings a new set and a new direction for Record InFocus.
“It’s hard to overstate how difficult it is to get the professional look and feel InFocus achieved, and without the resources routinely employed by other studios,” said executive producer James Standish. “Kent and the rest of our team did an outstanding job producing a multi-faceted, high quality newsmagazine show for eight years on a shoe-string budget. In an ideal world, we’d continue making InFocus indefinitely. As we pivot to focus on young families, we’re going to employ the limited resources entrusted to us to produce new shows developed specifically to reach our new target demographic with the gospel.”
The first episode of InFocus Recouched—available today online—repackages the more “timeless” segments of the program.
