Classroom lectures and basic practices for learning entry-level streaming and recording skills, and thinking about the digital age going forward

Since the pandemic, it has become normal for art projects to make the shift to online implementation, or to be held as a hybrid (online and in-person) event.
But while there is plenty of discussion assuming an all-digital approach from the project planning stage onwards, there is also worry about hurriedly-acquired skills, about equipment and staff, outsourcing budget limits, or the balance with in-person project components.
There are also probably plenty of people who, though they sense the potential of the online medium, shilly-shally somewhat in their attitude to streaming and recording.
In this three-part course, participants will learn and practice entry-level understanding and techniques for streaming and recording, such as approaches to microphones and cameras, and think about planning and production based on the possibilities and limitations of the online approach.

*This program will be conducted in Japanese
