The basic process
The basic process

  • A team of independent filmmakers film a live performance, in front of an audience, with 5-6 high-definition cameras (at OtB or elsewhere).

  • The filmmakers and the artists jointly edit the film, resulting in a product that the artist approves.

  • The film along with a trailer and additional content is loaded onto the site.

How is it going

Since our launch in January 2010 we have had over45,000 visitors to the site from110countries and 52states.

We have over 8,000 registered users, 136 paid individual subscribers and 16 paid educational subscriptions. We have sold over708single downloads or streams.

Our most popular shows are The Shipment, a theater work by Young Jean Lee and contruct, the last work by Australian choreographer Tania Leidtke and Dark Matters, a dance work by choreographer Crystal Pite/Kidd Pivot.

How is it going?

  • Most users are in Seattle and New York, with our highest international participation in Canada and Australia.

A few things we have learned
A few things we have learned

  • Our films allow audiences to watch shows that they could not see live and to watch shows through a technical, analytical perspective. They are a “separate” product.

  • OntheBoards.tv attracts an audience of “arts insiders.” People follow specific artists to the website.

  • Technical issues will always exist.

  • A small organization can implement this type of project.
