Dead Centre & FRINGE LAB are joining forces to present a live streaming workshop. Video designer Jack Phelan and sound designer Kevin Gleeson, the team who created To Be a Machine (Version 1.0), will present an accessible, useful introduction to low-cost, high-quality DIY streaming for live performance makers. They’ll walk you through the basics, opening up the possibility of innovative approaches to live streaming to small companies and individual theatre makers alike. Jack and Kevin will cover capturing live video and audio, cueing with QLab and streaming to platforms like YouTube and Vimeo.

This workshop will be delivered online and will last approximately two hours. It is best suited to Mac users due to the use of QLab. As each session has limited numbers, it will run twice: on Tuesday, 16 February at 11am and Wednesday, 17 February at 6.30pm.
