topic icon Live event filming at Bideford Chistmas Lights 2021

On Sunday, Stu joined up with Phil from Phil Saunders Creative and other camera crew to live stream the Bideford Christmas Lights Switch On 2021.

The yearly event has been able to go ahead again after the cancellation of the 2020 event. Because so many people are still staying at home and being careful, the council decided to experiment with a livestream. This would allow those at home or isolating to still experience the event.

Live event video mixing and streaming

The team set-up in a hair salon across the road from the stage, with the video mixer and other kit stationed there. Stu and Matt were across the road on the quay (on stage) with cameras using wireless HD video links to send the live footage back to the desk for streaming.

Overall the event was a real success. A projector was also palced int eh local pannier market where the livestream was played out for viewers in the warm to enjoy.
