Without a date for a return to ‘normal’ performances and rehearsals that don’t involve social distancing, livestreaming is an alternative option that can help you reach as many people as possible. In this event we’ll take a look at the process of livestreaming, talk through the different technology, platforms and software available, and discuss how to get the most from the experience.
Who is this event for?
Anyone is welcome to come to this event, but as we expect this event to be popular, we ask that only one person per group registers for this event. You don't need to have any experience of livestreaming as we will walk through the process from the very beginning, but if you do have some experience we will also cover some alternative approaches and there will be an opportunity to ask some more advanced questions.
We’ll talk about:
- Best practices for using smartphones for livestreaming
- A run-through of various streaming platforms you may wish to consider using
- How to stream publicly
- How to stream privately
- An overview of OBS – a free piece of software that will allow you to add live visual effects to your broadcast (logos, overlays, titles pre-recorded sections etc.) allowing users to produce a professional quality broadcast
- A look at the options to use more equipment in your streaming setup (multiple cameras, microphones etc)
- A guide to planning a broadcast – what to think about before ‘going live’
- How to put your livestream behind a paywall – for ticketed performances
We will be using the online meetup platform Zoom to host the event, and will send you full instructions the evening before on how to join the event.
