Overview

What is it about the reality talent TV shows that audiences find so compelling? A backbone story of the contestant who has so much talent yet never has a chance to showcase, or an unexpectedly amazing and unique performance, or interactivity with the audiences and judges? It's all of these and beyond: it's the proximity and authenticity of who you are as an artist that drives the audiences emotions.

This concept allows artists to let audiences actively participate in the experience while showcasing their amazing and unique skills. Give audiences a role of the judge and challenge them by your performance. The artist can gamify this concept by giving a "contest" feeling (ex. if you fail to score high, you have to come up a new piece for the next show, etc.). The artist can also team up with a few artists to reproduce a real contest as well.

Q&A / Wrap-up

How to set-up

Things to prepare:

  • Built-in camera (your laptop) or good quality webcam/Stand alone camera in a stable/fix position where it can capture the whole stage that you perform;
  • A screen where you can see and interact with audiences;
  • Space to perform (audio and lighting are set)


Key points:

  • Since this experience is staged for "contestant" and "judge", there is no need of mobile camera to move along with your performance. Just set a mini stage where you have a camera and screen with a good internet connection.
  • If you want to direct your main performance with audio and lighting, make sure you setup prior to your performance. Ask someone to take care of the technical parts if necessary so that you can focus on your performance.


Master Google Meet

  • Take a first 5-10 mins to let Guests in by clicking “accept” while using this time to do an introduction and warm up your audiences. Make sure everyone enters before a show starts.
  • Ask audiences to pin your screen, mute when you are performing (vice versa), or turn on their camera during activities or Q&A. Use this excuse to interact with audiences.
  • You can use tiled layout to see and interact with all audiences. Open a chat room as well to see their comments and reactions.
  • Are you performing at your home or training center where there is background noise? Use https://krisp.ai/ to cut noise for better user experience.

Make an experience flow seamless and engaging. What matters is not how sophisticated the show is but how the audiences enjoy and value the experience.  Tailor each project with clear target audiences in mind so that you can meet and exceed the expectation. Technical shit happens, but be always calm and entertainers as you are on stage.
