Live streaming is becoming a regular part of the new performance arts landscape, it is a useful way to get your voice out there in a time we can’t gather, but furthermore it makes your art accessible to people that this is not a new situation to. Live streaming from The Bus Stop, allows you to make full use of the production values of a professionally equipped and staffed space, while getting your art out to a potentially wider audience.
This workshop will be a primer on live streaming your shows at the Bus Stop. it will cover how to set up the space, hook up the necessary cameras and audio equipment, set up your computer, use the OBS streaming software, as well as captioning your events.
