Signature Aster cartoonist

Equipment for the live cartoon performance

idea Aster
I usually deal with theses aspects directly with the technician.


Desired equipment

For the cartoonist

- A workspace measuring around 1 sq m, either in the control room or, preferably, discreetly situated in the room itself (at the side, back, on stage or in the wings - to be agreed), in a place from where I can see the speakers.
- An electric connection with 2 sockets
- A visual or intercom connection with the event director (unless the cartoonist is to manage the integration of the drawings himself)
- A quick, simple means of communication between the PC sources (transmitting the slides) and the animation stand (my drawings): switch, commutator, video projector remote control)

Note: When working in a closed control room, an audio feed of the main room (captured by an ambient mic) will give the cartoonist a sense of the audience's reaction... Getting a feel for the general atmosphere is important, since the cartoonist will feed off positive feedback such as laughter and applause.

For the speakers
- A comfort monitor allowing them to see that a drawing is being projected (e.g. the same back screen as is used for their PowerPoint presentations).
