When George Barnes and his company Take 2 Productions was approached to remotely produce a COVID-19 related live stream series, he was on board immediately. Known as one of the forerunners of live streaming (NHL Stanley Cup, gameshow for “Avengers Infinity Wars,” H&R Block’s 12-hour Twitter Slothstream), Barnes jumped at the chance to explore the scientific efforts underway around the world during this time.
Creating this series has proven challenging in a time where social distancing is paramount to the safety of everyone involved. Connecting with clients remotely was an immediate need, as well as directing the series from off-set. Knowing he needed the ability to record people interacting remotely and stream the series live, Director George Barnes reached out to Teradek’s team for a solution.
