Expanding reach for the performing arts
Expanding reach for the performing arts
After doing all of the work preparing for a production, you want to make sure that your work is appropriately able to be appreciated. To be a performing art, there needs to be an audience. We at watched.live help you expand this audience, either live, or people searching on YouTube 3 years from now.
Our goal is to let your performance shine through. When people are in the audience, they don't want to think about the job the lighting people are doing, or if the curtains opened on time, they want to take in what is on stage. We let this experience pass on over to the screen.
You may choose to have the performance broadcast live, or recorded for later review. We can handle many sizes of performance, from a girl and her guitar in a barn, to a troupe of actors doing an interactive dinner theatre, to an orchestra on stage.
See how we can help you be seen.
We offer a variety of packages to fit your needs. The primary difference between the package sets is if the performance should also be broadcast live or not.
watched.live does have our own own commercial sound system which we may make available to you, however will require a separate audio engineer for any more than the spcified microphones. We are also able to use an audio feed provided and mixed by you/your organization.
All multi-person packages also require that watched.live be present at a full rehersal of the performance, except in the case of a purely improvisational scenario. For the best results, we need to be aware of stage movement and timing. This may be done either day of or on a previous day. You may choose to have this rehersal recorded or not.

For packages that provide one copy, this addon may be requested up to a year later to obtain an additional copy of the original camera footage of all the cameras used.
The video will be provided on a new hard drive or SD card and shipped directly to you. We record all of our video in 4K 59.94 fps.

We will include the footage from all cameras when the overall package specifies so or the "Raw Footage" addon is also purchased.
Shot selection may not be as polished, as we will be busy making sure sufficient notes are taken to make sure the actual performance looks marvelous.
watched.live will provide the specified number of microphones for each given package if requested. The individual microphones may be lapel, over the ear, or a standard hand held/mic stand variation based on your needs. We can work with you if you wish to provide your own microphones.
For the live broadcasts, we will retain the video for 5 year on our video host. If you had us simulcast the video on your own personal Facebook or YouTube channel, you will always have access to that.
Each of our stage production packages comes with the raw camera footage from all cameras provided. We will retain this footage for at least 1 year after the recording if you loose your copy and need to repurchase.
If not claimed for another event, we are available for hire every Monday through Saturday other than Christmas and Easter.
For Monday through Friday, you may reserve us up to 18 months in advance. For Saturdays, we do not take reservations more than 4 months in advance unless part of a multi-day event to allow for weddings with shorter engagement periods.
As long as the video isn't under copyright protections that are enforced by social media, we will be able to stream video either directly, or in conjunction with being played before a live audience by sharing the HDMI connection going to the projector or TV used in the venue. This will give us the highest possible video quality.
