Filming Live Events Workshop
Saturday, August 28th
SAVE THE DATE! This one-day workshop taught by Ryan LaPlante & Mike Holland will provide practical, hands-on advice and experience that will enhance your ability to film and/or livestream theatrical presentations or any other live event.
Taking place at the Loft Arts Space with a full 6-camera setup, as well as a live editing bay, this workshop will allow for practical experience as well as discussions of film and camera theory.
In the morning, the planning and theoretical elements of live video production will be introduced, discussed and demonstrated, including:
- Introduction to the equipment involved in live filming
- Camera Theory (how camera’s function)
- Continuity, jump-cutting & other film elements that will be new for theatre creators
- Set & Lighting Design for Camera
- Blocking for camera
- Camera placement & framing theory
- Sound Capture Theory
- A sampling of live-streamed events using the equipment to show “best of” practices and common mistakes.
In the afternoon, the workshop will become a practical exercise. Volunteer actors will be brought in and the workshop group will collectively block several scenes for the stage as well as for camera, film and edit the scenes live, and review the tape afterwards to strengthen learning. A rotation system will be used so all participants will get a chance to experience every element of live production during this portion of the day.
A workshop of this type would normally cost more than $200, but KCP is subsidizing the fee! There will be an Early Bird Registration to KCP Alumni at $40, followed by opening registrations to non-KCP participants for $60 (pending space availability).
This is a great opportunity for producers, directors, board members, or any other creatives in the theatre community (or who produce live events) to learn how to live stream events or improve their archival tapings in future.
There is a maximum of 20 participants, so book quickly when registration opens! Watch for our social media posts.
