CLIENT: StreamGM / United We Stream

THE CHALLENGE: StreamGM (formerly United We Stream) are part of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, and they are massive advocates of getting the live events and night-time economy back on it’s feet after Covid. This event was called ‘UnConvention’ and featured music artists and managers talking about how they faired during the Coronavirus lockdowns. We were approached to film and live stream the full two day event, from the O2 Ritz in Manchester.

HOW WE DID IT: We were a crew of 5 on the day, operating 4 cameras to capture the stream and talking heads with the attendees. We streamed using Blackmagic equipment, to links on Vimeo and Youtube – which were embedded on Facebook and various other websites. We created all of the animated placeholders / graphics ahead of the event, and included them in the live broadcast. We then created an overview edit of the full event, including footage of the presentations, attendees and the location.

THE RESULTS: The two day event was a total success, not only was this the first times after lockdown that people could physically attend, but there were thousands more viewers online would couldn’t make it on the day. The full two day streams can be found here & here.
