So while working on updating my site, I didn’t post any updates about some fun stuff I have recently been up to. I’ve been doing a ton of live streams lately- from backstage of shows to premieres and events. I honestly LOVE these, because I’ve always enjoyed doing any of my work live, but it also allows for complete interactivity and engagement with viewers. It’s all in the moment and no turning back- but that’s what makes it completely exhilarating and exciting to do.
Firstly, I got to do the first ever backstage live-stream from the 64th Annual Tony Awards. It a long 4-hour live event, but one of the highlights was definitely interviewing Denzel Washington and Viola Davis who both won Tony’s for the Broadway and Pulitzer Prize winning play, Fences:
This past month, I’ve also been in NYC a ton hosting on CBS’ Backstage Live! – the live stream during The Early Show on Saturday. Basically, all the guests come on to do longer, interactive chats with me and the viewers after their appearance on the show. Here’s one we did with Clay Aiken and my friend/mentor/internet magnate Gary Vaynerchuk:
Finally, I also co-hosted the live stream for the official Twilight premiere, which happened to be one of the biggest film and pop culture happenings of the summer. You can watch a recap of the livestream HERE and below is a segment I did before the premiere of all the fans camped out at Nokia Live in Downtown LA for days leading up to the event. It was crazy!
