Connie Toebe and I will be doing a live b’cast as we film the shadow puppet film “The Weeping Woman” on May 25th, 7:00 EST. This film is inspired by the Mexican legend La Llorona and tells the tale of a woman trying to find her children and her courage in a dark and unpromising world. We’re thrilled that author Patrick Rothfuss has created a character for this film, and we’ll also be giving you a sneak preview of this puppet.
Instructions to tune in are below. Feel free to comment and ask us questions. We’ll be on air about 30 minutes. See you then! Lisa
1. Logging on – go to: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/inbytheeye-on-ustream This will take you to my UStream page. You should see that I am live and us in the studio.
2. Commercials – UStream is free by commercials. So when you first log in you will see a commercial – about every 10 minutes after that you’ll get another one. Sorry! If at any time you miss something feel free to ask us and we’ll be happy to go over it again. After a commercial, it might take a minute for sound to reconnect.
3. Screen – The screen will be small but we’ll hold the puppets up close. :) There is a pop-out screen option too. If at any time you lose connection, wait a few – it may reboot, otherwise log back in. Chat should never be interrupted even if the screen goes dark on your end. Hopefully, your experience will be uninterrupted but – just wanted to list all of this in case you encounter it.
4. Chatting – When you login and see the screen on the upper right is a chat button, click on that and you’ll be able to ask us questions and make comments there. Feel free to do this often! We’d love to hear from you! There is a 40 second delay so if we don’t answer your question right away – it’s just taking a minute to get to us. If you have an UStream account you can login using that, otherwise you can comment as a guest and will be listed as UStreamer#… If you’re commenting as a guest please put your name after your question or comment so we know who you are!
I think that’s it. Feel free to text me if for some reason you can’t connect. Again – we’re doing this on Friday, May 25th at 7:00pm EST. If anything changes we’ll post everywhere! Hope to see you there!
