VIDEO CONFERENCING is a great way to bring a silhouettist into a hybrid event, anywhere in the world. There are two main ways to do this:
- Charles can appear from his studio via video link to cut silhouettes of people at an in-person event, or
- Charles can attend your event in person and cut silhouettes of virtual delegates using your online platform
Cutting a silhouette over Zoom is not without challenges, but with preparation it can work really well. I love the way it takes me and my scissors all over the world!”
Charles is always happy to meet with prospective clients over Zoom to demonstrate how this can work and discuss your event in more detail.
Virtual Studio Days
Each month Charles runs three or four of his own Zoom events at which online customers can book a short sitting to have their own silhouette cut.
We run these Virtual Studio Days at different times of day to suit people in different time zones. After the event the silhouettes are delivered by post or airmail worldwide.
Cutting silhouettes over Zoom
Each silhouette takes three minutes, so in a 20-minute sitting Charles can cut a family of 4 or 5 quite easily
During Lockdown in 2020 Charles was quick to take his work online, he found he really enjoyed the flexibility and freedom of cutting silhouettes over Zoom. Anybody, wherever they are in the world, can now book a short, inexpensive sitting to have their silhouettes cut out.
Virtual Studio Development
The virtual studio began as a way to pivot the business online during the first lockdown. Charles quickly became fascinated by Zoom and began cutting silhouettes of people all over the world, first at online parties and later in his own virtual space.
Charles calls this way of working “virtual street art”.
This series of articles show the development of the virtual studio and explore the possibilities of online working.
