I recently had the privilege to film and record a very special event in Oakland.
Ron Dellums, ex mayor of Oakland and civil rights activist passed away in July.
To celebrate his life, his family planned a beautiful event that included several dignitaries including congress women Barbara Lee and American politician Nancy Pelosi.
The evening was packed with beautiful music from two choirs and meaningful speeches honoring a very special man. To top it all off, Stevie Wonder made a surprise guest appearance and sang. It blew my mind!
I was lucky enough to film the whole evening and project all the action onto screens around the room.
A beautiful and very memorable evening!
If you have a live event that you want professional filmed or live streamed, please be in touch.
I recently filmed Janet Napolitano, current President of the University of California (ex Secretary of Homeland Security and ex Governor of Arizona) for a promotional video.
It was an absolute honor to meet and film her.
Here is a time lapse of the shoot from set-up to breakdown (3 hours, condensed into 40 seconds). Thanks to Mitch Silver who assisted me.
The final video is now complete and can be viewed at:
This is a short clip from the event I filmed that other week at the Islamic Cultural Center. It features Sophia Bouzid who is only 15. What an incredible voice! Really worth a listen.
Last week I donated my services and filmed a fundraising event for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society of Silicon Valley.
I recently had the opportunity to collaborate on a Live Streaming project for the Civic Design Lab that included the Mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaaf
The Civic Design Lab is a human-centered design process “empowering the local government to solve 21st century challenges.
Check it out:
Alan Cash live streaming at the Kapor Center for Social Impact. The studio hub (center) wirelessly links to professional video cameras and is live edited via an Ipad.
Anyone with a cell phone today can now live stream an event. Cell phone video streaming seems easy, but doesn’t provide the high resolution quality required for business and professional use.
High resolution multi-camera Live Streaming is ideal for:
• Corporations wanting to live stream a key-note speaking event, quarterly meetings panel discussion and conferences.
• Non-profits wanting to expand fund raising capacity, competition events and Annual General Meetings.
• Congregations wanting to keep their community connected to services.
• Sports events capturing fast paced action from multiple angles
• School performances, club activities, lectures and trainings
– The list is really endless
We use several professional video cameras showing multiple angles of your event. Each camera wirelessly transmits both audio and video to the Studio hub. That signal is then controlled by a single Ipad and broadcast over the internet.
Prior to the live event, ACV will conduct a site survey, testing connections and upload speed of the facility. It is important to use a direct wired ethernet connection with a fast upload speed. If that is not available, WiFi can be used, but it is not as stable.
We check to see if we can connect into the facility audio system or if we need to organize mics and sound equipment. We also assess all the locations for the setup of cameras, and lighting. Presentation slides can be included as part of the stream mix.
We stream to Facebook Live and YouTube Live and can also stream simultaneously to both platforms gaining even more exposure.
YouTube is currently dominating video viewing. YouTube Live is like a TV station, with the added bonus of being able to broadcast globally.
You Tube allows high resolution broadcasts up to 1080p.
FaceBook is the king of video marketing tools. Adding video, and your online viewership increases. Creating a Live Stream Video and your organization reaches new heights of possibilities. Facebook currently has a resolution limit of 720p.
There are a lot of moving parts to a successful Live Stream and a lot can go wrong.
If you want to showcase your live event, it’s critical to have professionals who have experience and the knowledge how to do it.
