Hey Everyone! It's time to start planning for Extra Life 2018. A lot of time and effort go into planning an event this large, so I wanted to go over the basics of what I'll need to see if we're going to do our own stream.
1.) I will need 3 "Team Leads" who will help organize and run the event. They will need to be in contact with me(MC_Shenanigans) all the way up until the event so I know that we will actually be able to produce a stream the day of the event. If at any time I feel like we don't have the manpower or time to throw our own stream I will look to others we can team up with to be on their stream.
2.) By the end of September 2018 we will need to have a reserved location that will be able to house us and handle the stream.
3.) We must have successfully tested and have a program for the stream ready by October 20th.
These are in place to make sure that we are able to present a stream that our community can be proud of. If there are any questions or concerns about the above, you can DM. If you are interested in being a team lead, please keep reading.(edited)
“ Technical ” lead. They will help coordinate everyone who has equipment for streaming, gaming, broadcasting, etc. They will need to have a comprehensive list of all the RELIABLE equipment we have available to us. Just because someone owns something, doesn’t mean we will be able to use it November 3rd-4th for the stream. I will need reports of that equipment and that they’ve been tested. You will also need to have a set team for that will help broadcast the stream, and back ups in case any of those members are unable to make it.
”Production” lead. This person will handle the time tables for what games are played when. They will have when we start, when we end, and keep the whole event organized. They will have back up plans for if something goes wrong with a game. This person will also be responsible for organizing the production location.
"Promotion” lead. Any fundraiser needs people to see it in order to get money donated. This position will be responsible for creating all marketing material for the event and help strategize how to get the most eyes on our stream.
Any one chosen for these positions will need to be completely dedicated and openly communicate with myself and each other. Without a strong team, a stream of this kind is nearly impossible.
If you are interested in one of the lead positions please send me a DM with which one and WHY I should choose you for the position with EXAMPLES of your work. I will not choose someone for something simply because they want to or because they care about the cause. Not to be blunt, but this is a lot of work so I will be taking this very seriously and being very honest as we go through this process.
That being said, if we can get these things done I think we have the opportunity of having an amazing stream and raising money #forthekids.
