Streaming Musicals Revisited: Insights into the Role of Virtual in a Changing Landscape
Friday 1/12/24 at 5pm ET
In the room: Tom Polum, producer (The Toxic Avenger, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and CEO and executive producer Of Streaming Musicals LLC, Stacia Fernandez, executive producer of Streaming Musicals LLC (Estella Scrooge, Emma, Being Ernest, Mooseltoe, 1600 Vine) and Tyler Milliron of Milliron Studios. As we return to live performance, many question the place of virtual performance in our industry, yet Streaming Musicals is upgrading and expanding. Perhaps because there is a marked increase of interest in streaming content since shutdown changed the world's viewing habits. And streaming has become part of the development path for new works. What is the line drawn between using AEA or SAG/AFTRA agreements and contracts? What are current best practices? How can we best use the lessons of virtual performance in our evolving industry? As Streaming Musicals enters a new stage of growth, what are the lessons Tom and his company have learned, and how have they changed his creative approach to "virtual theater"?
