What is a virtual event?
A virtual event is an online event with no in-person audience—it could be as simple as a webinar, or as complex as a multi-day conference with a high level of interactivity. Virtual Events became an essential way to connect during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021 we helped local nonprofits raise over $1.8M through virtual fundraising

Frequently asked questions about virtual events
Each project is different and the total crew size will change based on the complexity of the project and how much content is live vs. pre-produced. Typically, most productions have at least a 3-person crew, though for on-location live stream projects it’s more common to have a 4 to 5 person crew to ensure that every element of your production is covered and that all risks are mitigated.
A Run of Show is our minute-by-minute guide to the entire event. We like to avoid any surprises and confusion as your event comes together and this document is the authoritative outline and script for everyone to be on the same page. We can collaborate with you on this document and provide some templates, though it is ultimately your responsibility to make sure your program is lined out exactly the way you want it.
Videos of the live stream are available instantly after the event concludes and are automatically saved within the platform you are using (YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, etc.).
There are many strategies to optimizing viewership for your event. Our team will work with you to decide on your best options when choosing a platform or CDN (content delivery network) to use. We are able to simultaneously stream to multiple platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, and Twitch.
We recommend a minimum of 15Mb/s upload speeds to host a successful stream. Consider how many other devices will be connected to the same network. If you require another 3-4 devices connected to manage your auction software, social media accounts, or other activities that may result in higher bandwidth usage, consider upgrading to a higher tier of internet speed.

We are able to come to you and offer our full-scale production services. On-location production typically requires a larger crew and may be limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. All productions on-location include the use of professional lighting and audio equipment, and HD cameras. You are responsible for ensuring that your internet connection is adequate to meet the needs of your live stream event.
We have the ability to seamlessly transition between live content (someone speaking to a live audience in real-time) to pre-produced content that either we produce or you provide to us. Utilizing pre-produced content in your program takes some of the pressure and stress of your live talent and lets everyone in the production take a deep breath before going live again!
