Instructions for Artists: Pre-Recorded Videos

Why We Are Requiring Pre-Recorded Sets

  1. As you can imagine, it is fairly time consuming on our end to do this every single day. We want to keep providing entertainment and giving artists opportunities, but scheduling a pre-recorded set is much easier on our team. 
  2. There have been a lot of issues with live performances such as:
    1. Internet / connectivity
    2. Communication
    3. Artists waiting too long to start playing after the stream has started (resulting in losing a majority of the viewers very quickly)

      Pre-recorded sets remedy these two problems. But we also have one more reason that we’re very excited to share with you and launch to the public. 

  3. Party Guru will now be featuring visual artists in your streams! This ranges anywhere from flow artists, to go-go dancers, to painters, to tattoo artists, to jewelry makers, to flair bartenders, and more! 
    1. This is going to benefit your stream in the following ways:
      1. Brings more elements that would be found at an event to the video
      2. Brings more viewers. This will bring in more people that wouldn’t normally watch a video of someone playing a set, but WOULD watch someone making jewelry while listening to the set. 
      3. More collaboration. Our visual artists will be promoting your music, you’ll be supporting their art. 
      4. You can interact with people in the stream chats while your performance is playing

If for some reason you decide you would NOT like a visual artist streamed in your performance, please email Zach and let us know. Otherwise, we will be booking visual artists to genres that fit best with your music.

Whether you have a visual artist in your stream or not, you are required to pre-record your streams and have them sent to us no later than the Sunday that falls in between 2-3 weeks before your performance. If your video is not in our inbox 2 weeks or more before your performance, you are at risk of losing your time-slot and Facebook event. 


How this will work

  1. On or by your Pre-Recorded Video Due Date, Record your video in OBS or similar program. MUST be direct audio for the performance. 

  2. Please leave logos out of the frame, we will be adding the logos and border around the video. You are welcome to include ‘Donations Accepted: [your venmo (or whatever) info]’ in your recorded video. 

  3. Upload your finished video to Google Drive and share the link with us on or by your Pre-Recorded Video Due Date

  4. We will merge your videos together with our border template and the visual artist’s video. This template will include your logo

  5. Stream will be scheduled onto your artist page, crossposted to Party Guru FB, Party Guru Youtube, and Twitch.

  6. We have seen the best results on Facebook by crossposting from the artist page to the Party Guru page, we can set this up for you.
