THE SHOW MUST GO ON???
YO! There are no Do-Overs! This is LIVE! : )
Let's face it, when you are doing a LIVE video, there is always a chance that EVERYTHING can fall apart. It's not about if it will happen, but when. #mariahcarey
A truly #preparedperformer does foundational work so that they are ready to recover quickly when things go wrong. This Live Video Checklist is a great way to prepare before you “go live!” https://thepreparedperformer.com/live-video-checklist
I have experienced MAJOR disasters both onstage and on FbLive in front of thousands.
Here's just a few examples…
– I fell off a stage and landed in an elderly man's lap during the opening funeral scene in the musical Evita.
– My top ripped open showing my bare chest to the entire production team of Broadway's South Pacific and a room of 36 dancers during an audition.
– I stood on stage during final scene of the National Tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with NO CAR! (The whole point of the show is the flying car.)
– My phone fell out of my selfie stick and landed shooting straight up my skirt while teaching my Camera Confidence Course.
I could go on and on and on…
Seriously horrible things have happened to me on stage. Some were out of my control, some were just things that “happened.”
How do you find the motivation to keep going when EVERYTHING has fallen apart?
I'm sure you saw or heard about the crazieness that happened NYE when Mariah Carey had a crazy track and monitor screw up on stage.
Rather than ripping Mariah to shreds, I've put together 3 huge lessons you can apply to your business and your FbLives!
