Yarmouth High School Graduation
Audio Visual Productions in Maine
the maine high school Graduation season is upon us!
I love graduation season. The logistics and the hours are a bit challenging but the excitement from family, friends, administration, staff, and students is contagious. Graduating from high school is a monumental achievement that marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. It’s a time of celebration, reflection, and anticipation for the future. To make this milestone even more memorable, many schools have embraced the power of audio-visual productions to create an unforgettable graduation experience.
This is my second year working with Yarmouth High School for their graduation ceremony. Last year we had an absolutely gorgeous day and the commencement ceremony was hosted outside on their football field. Sadly, that beautiful weather from last year didn’t show up for the 2023 ceremony. It was raining (and I mean pouring) this year. So once we got to campus we started setting up all of the audio-visual equipment inside their gymnasium. Due to limited seating for an inside ceremony, we also had to live stream the graduation to their theater where additional community members, family, and friends could watch in the overflow viewing area.
Audio Visual Production Services – Here’s what I provided for graduation
Yarmouth High School had its own riser and podium already on site for the graduation ceremony. So, from a production standpoint, I provided a line array sound system to fill the gym with crystal-clear audio. I provided four channels of Shure ULX-D wireless microphones, delayed speaker stacks for the back of the gym, and a complete two-camera live stream studio. The live stream equipment consisted of Sony DSLR camera bodies with zoom lenses, a Roland VR50MK2 video and audio mixer and everything was fed into a 2022 Macbook Pro for the production.
For live streams I typically like to be hardwired into an ethernet port. Unfortunately, that wasn’t an option inside the gym so we had to rely on the school’s WiFi to stream. That was a first for me and it was very nerve-wracking as the production company. It worked out fine (there were a few times the stream buffered on YouTube), but thankfully the stream stayed connected and everything went according to plan. Here’s a look at the full commencement. Thank you to the staff and administration at Yarmouth High School for bringing me back for a second year. Spoiler alert, I’ll be back for a third year and I’m looking forward to providing the a/v for the 2024 commencement ceremony.
