Produce a Hybrid Music Event (April)

6th April to 21st April
Art School Live is focussed on bringing live music onto the MMU campus. We book bands, make a venue from scratch, set up a multicam live-streaming rig, create a brand identity, invite an audience and produce a professional hybrid event.

There are a wide array of roles on offer to students to produce the show. These range from camera operators, vision mixers and photographers to graphic designers, social media officers, events managers and journalists/reviewers.

This event will be taking place on Thursday the 20th of April in a studio in the SODA (School of Digital Arts) building. We will be inviting an audience of around 40 people to watch the taping. Students will be needed to operate the equipment for the live stream, to manage the event (both the bands and the audience) and to help to market/document the show.

We run these events regularly, so keep your eye out for future projects.

What you need to bring to the table

  • Commitment: we’re asking you to commit to the show date, and the dates of the meetings and training in advance of the show.
  • You will also have to undertake some work in your own time away from these meetings (e.g. creating graphics/animations, writing reviews, scheduling social media posts etc.) – each team usually meets up on an informal basis in between the official meetings.
  • You will be required to meet deadlines and work to schedules.
  • This is a student-led project – bring your creativity to the table.

Students will be split into three teams to run all the different aspects of the project:

  • Technical Broadcast Team (TBT) The technical team will operate the cameras, vision mixing, sound, lighting and run the graphics and pre-recorded packages into the live show.
  • Events Management Team (EMT) The events management team will look after the smooth running of the show – liaising with guests, carrying out risk assessments, logistics and ensuring good communication.
  • Marketing & Branding Team (MBT) The marketing and branding team will look after the creation of the show’s graphics along with creating and distributing social media and other promotional content.
