An import reminder about today’s Stilgherrian Live (Metro Screen) Special Edition: It isn’t at my usual Ustream channel but over at Metro Screen’s Viocorp stream, starting at 2pm Sydney time. There’s a CoveritLive chat stream, but we’ll also be monitoring Twitter for the hashtag #mslive (for “Metro Screen Live”, you see). Five hours to go…
For a start, there’s all these other people around. Then there’s the waiting. And the presenter gets to wait the most, as everyone else is working on camera angles and movement, lighting design, cues… ah, but this is the magic of television!
Anyway, I hope you’re all busy nominating people for “Cnut of the Week” over at that other blog post, ‘cos nominations close at 8pm Sydney time. That’s in about three hours.
Oh, and the photo was taken by Trinn (’Pong) Suwannapha.
There’s a very special edition of Stilgherrian Live this Friday afternoon at 2pm Sydney time. ’Pong and his classmates at Metro Screen are producing a full multi-camera episode with a quiz and interviews and other entertainments.
The program is the end result of their full-week course, Produce live-streamed multi-cam television. ’Pong pitched doing Stilgherrian Live as his segment — as if he wasn’t busy enough doing his Masters of Digital Media at COFA and being DOP for some SEKRIT soap opera — and somehow that’s morphed into me presenting the whole program.
The program will be streamed live from Metro Screen’s page at Viocorp.
Now, I know 2pm Friday is when many people are meant to be working, but it’d be great to have a few of you watching, commenting back, and even providing the students with some feedback.
So to encourage your participation, we’ll have our usual offer of a t-shirt of your choice from our friends at King Cnut Ethical Clothing. Just nominate a “Cnut of the Week” and be watching the program when we draw a name from the Cocktail Shaker of Integrity.
If you want to learn how to direct multi-camera streaming video on the Internet, and you’re in Sydney, then here’s an opportunity too good to miss! Metro Screen has a full week-long masterclass next week for just $175, and there’s some places left. Check the write-up and get your application in now! You can join ’Pong, who’s doing it to refresh Stilgherrian Live.
