We’ve got a special event this weekend: a live video interview with Michael Angelo Batio!
For months we’ve been working on improving our live streaming video setup. We’d like to be able to host more interviews in-house and even livestream some of them, in the highest possible quality. Technology has come a long way in the last few years, and we’ve now got an incredible, broadcast quality setup.
So, how are we going to test drive this thing? We’re excited to report that none other than Michael Angelo Batio will be stopping by our Brooklyn studio this Saturday at 1pm EST to give our new live broadcast rig a spin.
It’s been just about ten years since we’ve sat down with Mike, and we’ve learned so much in the interim. It will be cool talk to him again about his playing, get an even better look at it with our latest equipment, and ask him about things we didn’t even know about when we first met.
Even better, we’ll be set up to take some calls live!
The process for this is simple: just mail your questions to [email protected]. We’ll reply to selected questions with a link that will allow you to call in during the event, directly through your browser. So, if you have any questions you’re burning to ask Mike, get them ready now!
And not to worry if you can’t make it. Due to the limitations of physics, there is no way to film in slow motion and broadcast in regular speed. So the good news is that we’ll be doing our usual edit on any Magnet footage we capture, and Masters in Mechanics subscribers will get a download of the new material as soon as we have it.
Here’s the link to the live event on YouTube. Bookmark this and add it to your calendar — once again, we’re going live Saturday, March 4, 1pm EST.
If you’re on our mailing list, we’ll also send you a reminder just before we go live. If you’re not already on the list, you can sign up here. See you Saturday!
