Free Speech Open Mic
All Ages Audio-Visual Open Mic
Hosted by Belmont Media Center
Saturday, September 21st from 11am to 3pm! Play your songs, show your video, read your poetry, perform stand-up comedy, or just speak your mind at the Audio Visual Open Mic #8 here at Belmont Media Center's Studio A. We encourage original material but cover songs and/or derivative material is fine too. We can accomodate almost every type of performer, just let us know what you're all about beforehand.
WE HAVE A FULL PA and STAGE MONITORS. Our 3-camera HD TV studio will capture every performer. We have an upright piano, plenty of mics, and an LCD projector for videos or images that can be projected onto the wall.
The entire afternoon will be cablecast LIVE locally & on the Web and also on Facebook LIVE. Performances will be archived on our YouTube page. If you're looking for a video to showcase your talent, our open mic is a great way to get a quality promotional product. And its free!
THE FOUR GOLDEN RULES
1. The length of your performance time depends on how many people confirm before the open mic. If the signup is full each slot will be at least 10 minutes. Those screening videos or films longer than that must email us before the event.
2. If you want to screen a video or film or project images for your slot or during your performance we recommend an H.264 1920 x 1080 file. Send us a link or upload to our Dropbox Folder > HERE (you don't need a Dropbox account)
3. When you sign up for a time slot, PLEASE ADD IN THE COMMENTS SECTION what instruments, etc. you will be using if you're a musician or performance artist with equipment needs. Otherwise, please tell us a little about your performance (music, essay, poetry, etc) so that we can be ready. PLEASE INCLUDE HOW YOU WANT YOUR NAME DISPLAYED ONSCREEN, your social media info and/or whatever promotional info you might want to promote. Also...if you have specific requests about the production of your performance on video, don't hesitate to ask how we can help.
4. Belmont Media Center is open to all, so please be respectful of others. No abusive or threatening behavior will be tolerated.
