Leanna Keyes of Transcend Streaming produces fully live digital events with three primary principles:
Artists Over Technology: The needs of the artist come first. I find technical solutions to achieve the vision, rather than forcing the art into the mold of the technology.
Accessibility: Digital theater is vastly more accessible to audiences. Anyone in the world can tune in. Plus, I have robust systems for captioning; everyone is welcome here.
Fully Live: Almost everything can be done live, even complicated video, projection, and sound effects. My systems remove the technological burden from actors, hosts, and presenters so that they can focus on what they do best: connecting.
This moment in time is an opportunity to expand our reach, to amplify our impact, and to connect in ways that we've never imagined possible. Let's figure it out together.
