The Captioning Studio has given two presentations on GoTheatrical! theatre captioning at the recent annual conference of the Australian Performing Arts Centres Association (APACA).
We extend a very special thank you to Kay Jamieson, Executive Producer of Brink Productions, and Brian Coghlan, Venue Services Manager, Frankston Arts Centre for participating in the panel discussions and sharing their experiences of the GoTheatrical! technology and service. Kay also showed images of the GoTheatrical! screens on set, giving venues some ideas for suitable positioning of screens.
Thank you also to State Theatre Company of South Australia, who gave us permission to film an actor on stage with captions being cued to screen, enabling us to show this footage to Conference delegates.
The APACA Conference was a wonderful opportunity for the GoTheatrical! team to meet in person some of the venue staff with whom we work remotely.
And sincere thanks also to the APACA conference organising team – Rick and Jenny – for making us feel so welcome.
And as an added bonus, the lovely balmy weather in Perth was wonderful too!
