Another two editions of Fast and Furious has happened, and also earlier this year I operated a livestream for the drag-centered Serve Network on Twitch. I'd like to talk about three important things:
Practice and Preparation
Always the most important part of a successful livestream is PRACTICING. It is choreography to know what buttons to press, transitions to make, and to know what you're doing. Make a list of all the settings to confirm before you click the go-live button.
Audio, it matters so much!
If you can, get any kind of external microphone. I have an SM58 and a 2i2 which is a nice simple combination. A pair of bluetooth headphones are also fine, and if earbuds can be shared between two people.
Using your iPhone as a camera
Paying for the premium version of the app EpocCam is worth it.
