In June 2014, we took on our most ambitious live broadcast yet at the 2014 New Economy Coalition CommonBound conference. This was our first attempt at running a conference like a live temporary TV channel with original content and a larger broadcast team.
Our setup involved three cameras on the main stage, one camera in an interview studio and a camera in two of the workshop rooms. The video looked the best in the final plenary session as we were able to integrate all of the cameras and production graphics to develop dynamic crowd shots to get very close to what would be needed for live TV.
Our goal is to eventually be able to show up at an event like this and to produce it like a live newsroom so that the important ideas, actions and organizations can be accessible to the wider world. Though I think we are still a few years away from fully realizing this vision, we’re gaining more experience at each event we cover in this way.
The Extraenvironmentalist is grateful to the New Economy Coalition and the other partner organizations that are helping us to realize this vision.
