Years of Experience
We Started Stagecast Because We Want to Help The World’s Greatest Performers Embrace New Digital Opportunities
Combining our backgrounds in music production, broadcasting, and what was then called ‘new media’, Matt and David first worked together in 2012 at the Royal College of Music. We set out to see how high we could push the quality of our concert films and audience numbers with the minimum of resources: three remote-controlled cameras and three operators sharing all the roles.
Within a couple of years we’d not only succeeded in growing our audience, but also caught the attention of some professional promoters, who asked if we could help them live stream some concerts. At the same time, we’d been discussing the potential for a streaming platform which would be specifically designed for artistic performances, free of the distractions and limitations of YouTube and social media platforms, allowing artists and promoters to grow their own online audience.
These two strands led eventually to Stagecast’s launch in 2017, since when we have worked throughout the UK and abroad, building a team of incredible multi-skilled staff, working with some of the world’s best performers, and developing our own online performance platform.
Quality and audience impact are still the things that drive us, and nothing beats the thrill of the audience reaction when a great performance, delivered online, conveys all the emotion, power and meaning of the live show.
