Steve Says

We’ve been doing a lot of research into live streaming on the web and I’m pleased to announce we’ve figured it out! After setting up a YouTube live stream for the M.V. Hospital, we discovered that to go live, all you need is to upgrade to a ‘director’ account on You Tube and you are ready to go! We’re working on inexpensive ways to set up multi-camera shoots and switching, so stop by my office to find out just how easy it is to set up your own LIVE feed on You Tube for free!



Now that we’ve had the kitchen studio freshly painted, we’re ready to add lighting and diffusion to the grid to make your productions really shine! Michelle and I are working with producers to fine tune their own lighting schemes to program into the lighting bank. Each producer will be able to shape and mold their lighting to their heart’s delight, making for a big improvement in their overall look.
Check in with Carl on how to set up your very own lighting design.
Next up: new cameras!



The Winter and Spring productions are wrapping up! Lookout for a new cooking show with Chef Amy! There are over six episodes ready to air. Thanks to Carl for being the anchor we all rely on! Summer is here and things never really slow down, so stay tuned for some great Summer productions!
