I was pleased to be invited up to York Uni this week, to speak at the Live Theatre Broadcast Symposium.
My talk “Seeding The cloud: Broadcast Entities and Digital Storytelling” draws some observations about the recently commissioned digital performance hybrids in the UPstream programme which I developed as a strand within SHPLive.TV, supported by greenhouse.
I’ll probably use this as material to work into my next blog article for Create Hub.
Here’s the video from the Live Theatre Broadcast day, which features Marcus Romer (Artistic Director, Pilot Theatre), Ross MacGibbon (Royal Opera House Cinema Screen Director), John Wyver (Director, Illuminations Media) and myself from the culture sector.
At the end of August, I led a workshop at the GEEK Play Festival in Rochester, showing a small group of people how to live stream, and discussing ideas around content and audience behaviour.
We took to the streets to test out mobile streaming and shot some video of the GEEK Play events taking place around the town. Our four hours together went quickly, as the time of the final live stream broadcast approached and we swiftly assembled an online news show documenting the events of the afternoon.
Here’s my edit of the street footage, including the fortunate meeting with the Great Kentspectations Steampunk ambassabors
My presentation slides from the early part of the Street The Streets workshop are on Slideshare.
