It was a privilege to be asked to provide the Live Streaming for a funeral at a Catholic church in the Rusholme area of Manchester in Mid-February and then the burial afterwards at Southern Cemetry.
Here’s what the family said afterwards in a lovely review: “I would like to thank Andrew for the service he provided for my father’s funeral. He was quick to respond to my emails or phone calls. When there was a slight issue with the streaming website he was able to put an effective measure in place within 24 hours. His photography and cinematography skills were excellent with sympathetic and tasteful views taken. The streaming allowed people from four continents across the globe to view the service. I would like to thank you and your son for the service provided to me, my father and the wider family.”
I used 3 professional video cameras for the multi-cam live stream and also installed microphones to ensure great sound quality. People often ask why I bother installing my own microphones and not just use the camera microphones – But I would argue that good sound is as critical as the picture qualty. If you can’t hear clearly what people are saying, then it’s fairly pointless having it live streamed.
My aim is always to provide the family and people watching with the best service I can give them – This will often mean extra work in setting up and packing down, but if it means a better broadcast, I’m delighted to do it. If you do a great job, people will recommend you and come back to you in the future – This is always my work ethos.
