Grand Final livestream - great job!

Just want to do a shout out to everyone involved in organising the livestream for the Grand Final at the weekend. In previous years this has sometimes felt like a bit of an afterthought, but it has been steadily improving year on year I reckon.

And sure, the improving technology (including consumer-ready livestreaming functionality with FB, YouTube etc.) presumably has a fair bit to do with this, but even so, I really appreciated the thought that was given to camera placement, live camera selection, the fact that the screened finalist films were a direct feed, and the way that the in-the-room audience reaction to the films was in the audio mix without overwhelming it, so we could sense the live response while also enjoying the films.

Hugh Sundae has been doing it year on year since it was the Herald live stream, and has gotten it down to a fine art. So much so this year everything was all set up and ready to go before we even came in for our playback tech check on the Saturday afternoon.

As a plug for him go to Sundae Pictures Limited for event live streaming!

Okay, I'll admit the audience reaction did kind of ruin that one a little bit.

It's almost like, hearing audience reaction during comedies = GOOD, but audience reaction during more serious films generally = BAD
