Livestream for CF2015?
« on: July 24, 2014, 18:01:44 »
Hi all

Would like to know if there are any plans for a live stream for next year or not.

A lot of cons are now starting streams as it allows those who cant attend to get some of the action and feel a bit involved even though they are not there.


I run the Furry live streaming site FURSTRE.AM and would love to be part of the team if there is anything going on.

So yea, anything planned? If not is it something hat could be considered? Would be happy to give my knowledge over on the subject.

Jack,

I think it could be considered, I'm sure it will get looked into by the visual media department.

I find life feeds great but also a torture for those who really want to go but cant afford it, so mixed feelings from me.

I am talking with Hunter Husky over email about how it could be done.

Hmm well it is better than nothing, having a live stream would bridge the gap from not being able to go and being there.

I recall bringing this up a couple of times at previous conventions. The feedback panel said they would try this out.

This is great because it will give furs who have never been to a con the idea ofwhat goes on (besides the "best of" clips on youtube) and encourages them to try it out the next year!

Might sound a bit harsh (and don't bite my head off for this) but I don't think there should be any livestreams, why should people get some of the con experience for free when those who attend pay hundreds?
If you have friends who can't attend, you can take pictures, record videos, and livestream yourself if you like. A lot of videos and photos get put online from cons anyway.
There's no need to put extra stress on the staff for this.

Have you watched a live stream from a con before? It is nothing like being there.

And doing a live stream from the con does not add much for staff.
 I am offering myself to video staff next year anyway but they already do video mixing at the main events for the big screens so like I said, not much on top.

I did say some of the experience, I know its not like being there but they still see what's going on etc, which in my opinion just takes out the slight mystery and so fun that comes from that. If it's not much on top however than it's no issue, I just feel like the staff do too much sometimes x3

Well loads of people take video and upload it to YouTube in the weeks and moths after the event so really no difference?

I was watching the Anthrocon web cam when that was happening. I did not in the slightest feel like "I was there" but more like "I need to be there" XD
