How to Produce Big Webcasts with Small Crews
There’s nothing inherently wrong with the one-camera shoot for a streaming video webcast. But sometimes the high-profile nature of your speakers, or your viewers, is going to demand a bit more production polish and visual variety to keep them engaged.
While most of us don’t have a full production crew on call, ready to come to our rescue with multiple camera people, a producer, director, switcher, lighting and more…Russell Investment Group has figured out how to run it all with just one person.
That’s right. One person, and some pretty nifty gear.
Join us for a live webinar with Scott MacGougan, Digital Media Specialist at Russell Investment Group. He’ll give you a video tour of his studio environment and answer your questions live, including:
- What are the essential pieces of technology you’ll need to make it look like you have a big team behind the production?
- Can your choice of webcasting platform make it easier to ramp up the production values of your online presentations?
- What happens if you have remote presenters who can’t come onsite?
- And the biggie: is it really worth going to all this trouble?
Scott MacGougan oversees Digital Media production at Russell Investments, a global firm headquartered in Seattle, Washington. He's been in that role for 15 years, responsible for recording, editing and producing audio, video and webcasts for both internal and external audiences. He was a previous winner of one of Sonic Foundry's Rich Media Impact awards in 2009 and was also the winner of a regional Emmy award for music, but that was in his previous life as a musician and composer. (He still plays a pretty mean guitar.)
