In our new reality of surviving during COVID-19, in-person events are no longer safe. We are learning to accept virtual events to fill the void, but sitting in front of a monitor watching someone speak in front of a green screen is a far cry from experiencing a live stage production. Transformit has been creating stage productions designed for video production for many years. While TEDx events are staged in front of a live audience, the majority of the viewers of these events are watching the presentations online.
While theaters and large gatherings are not viable during COVID, smaller pods of tested co-workers are acceptable. Many of the corporate events we have designed in the past have involved live feeds to and from several different branches or offices. Having an interesting stage and backdrop for the video creates an experience and theme. Using physical stage elements helps to give the a more realistic sense of place and reality.
