When it comes to a live event production, there is more than meets the eye. No doubt you have been to concerts, watched television awards shows, or maybe been to a play. You may not have given much thought to how these live events are produced. It is not a simple process to set up a professional live event. Much thought and action go into producing the event.
The very first step is you need to have plans in place. That sounds very simple and generic but it is an important step. You need to go over all the plans and decide what will remain and what will have to be scrapped. There may be great ideas in your original plans but if it does not fit the theme of the live event, then likely those ideas will be discarded.
After the general plan has been decided upon, the details have to be worked out. One of the first important details includes deciding on the venue. What type of venue and also the location of the venue are very important in producing a successful live event. If you already have a specific venue in mind, then concert production company the location will need to be reserved. Depending on the venue, this could mean you must reserve it a year or more in advance. There will also more than likely be a deposit that must be made with the venue owner or venue Management Company.
Another important step is making the decision of who will be a part of the event. Once again, these are decisions that need to be made months in advance. Event participants have to make sure their schedule will allow them to participate in your live event. Don’t wait until the last minute to contact these people.
There are other details that must be considered and are very important. For example, stage lighting must be considered. You will need a competent stage lighting director. Also, don’t forget about the design and setup of the stage. There are many other practical matters that need to be taken care of, such as printing tickets and invitations and distributing them. Also, you need to remember your performers will need dressing rooms and there will likely be post event parties to take care of. All of these things and more need to be taken care of well in advance of your live event production. Without the proper planning, there will inevitably be problems that could have otherwise been avoided.
Once your live event begins, you will need directors or editors who can make adjustments as necessary during the show. It is common place for events to have a 5-10 second delay. This is helped to filter out unexpected profanity or other speech that is undesirable. The delay feature will cause the offending speech to not be heard by the audience.
