Deadbeat Films Opens the Door to the Future of Live Performance

Deadbeat collaborates with Certain Blacks on an immersive live stream onboard an iconic former lighthouse boat

Deadbeat Films Opens the Door to the Future of Live Performance

Is 2021 the year that immersive, cinematic live-streams really take off? Deadbeat Films certainly think so.

With audiences not allowed to attend events this year, performers, musicians, artists and event organisers are starting to get creative, and the ‘Join the Docks’ Festival in London’s historic Royal Docks was certainly a frontrunner in this space.

With Arts Council funding from both the UK and Sweden, the producers behind last year’s Ensemble Festival, Certain Blacks, commissioned Deadbeat Films to create a stunning, live-streamed performance event onboard an iconic former lighthouse boat in Victoria Docks, along with Swedish multi disciplinary performance company Svalbard.

The event, which incorporated live music and immersive performance, invited the audience to jump aboard with the artists and experience this intimate event, with all the excitement and energy of a live show.

Creative director Boris Thomson-Roylance said of the experience: “Immersive live streams are definitely part of the future of live events. At Deadbeat we’ve worked closely with massive innovative events companies like Secret Cinema in the past, as well as created films for all the major festivals in the UK, and our uniquely cinematic approach to event filming really provides the audience with an experience they won’t have had in the past.”

“The Arts council understands that live art and the work of live artists must continue to exist as it is a fundamental part of our culture. Just like every other element of society we just need to adapt to the new normal.”
