JOB DESCRIPTION: Online readings
« on: Aug 10, 2020, 06:26 pm »
I have been hired to SM online events using Streamyard. There has also been a technician hired to run the actual tech. Has anyone worked on an online event with a technician? How did you do that? How did you go about a clear com and what was your role. The event will only have two people on it so it would have been easy for me to just run the tech so I am unsure what my role should look like now. Any advice would be very helpful

My online show had me running all the tech (with a consultant to help me learn the tools), so would love to hear anyone chime in on how actually calling an online event would work.

USITT hosted a series of webinars about producing online performances...If you are a member, you can look it up in their online catalog of content. It was called Lessons Learned, and was a series of 3 discussions about how 2 different companies produced online shows.

(There are tons of informational videos available to members there if you're looking for something to do!)

TYA/USA is offering a free-to-all webinar next Monday called "Creating Immersive Theater for Families Online: Behind the Scenes of THE WIZARDS OF OAKWOOD DRIVE with La Jolla Playhouse". You can register on their website for the link.
