Yep. You read that headline correctly. We’re broadcasting our upcoming photo gig LIVE from our Seattle studio via the ol’ internet on Friday, January 29 from 10am to 6pm (PST, which is GMT -8). This is tomorrow for most of you, but today for some! This is a total experiment, but we need your help. Please read on.
The nuts and bolts: we’re shooting the album cover and promo materials for a great alt country/punk band called Brent Amaker and the Rodeo. Expect 5 men in all black; 3 beautiful, scantily/sex-ily dressed ladies; in a country-punk meets modern studio set. Very free form. Very experimental. There is no “client”. This is a collaboration.
How do you tune in to this new Chase Jarvis LIVE thingie? It’s easy. Just go to this url: www.chasejarvis.com/live at any time during the hours specified above.
From there, you’ll be able to watch the live stream from the studio. You’ll be able to see and hear the entire thing, soup to nuts. Watch the set building, the styling, the shooting, the digital asset management, the gear, you’ll even get to join us for lunch and some afternoon cocktails. And it’s totally interactive. You’ll be able to ask questions of anybody and everybody on set–all 20 of us–via twitter (@chasejarvis) and a live chat embedded in the url above. And please use hashtag #cjlive.
There’s even — you guessed it — a… —
…break midday where the band will perform a short set, just to whet your palette and keep the mood light.
The qualifier: this is in BETA. Scratch that, uber-BETA. And this is where we need your help. We need your participation. We think it might break, we think it could rock, we think it could be really interesting, but in order for us to find out the answers to these questions, we need your eyeballs, keystrokes, and your network of friends. We want you to ask questions via twitter and the chat. We want you to tell you friends to tune in and help us test out this concept. If it breaks or sucks, you’ll have helped us. If it’s a out of the box success (we doubt it), you’ll have been there first.
Here’s the rough schedule:
**all times are Pacific Standard Time, Seattle (GMT -8), everything is subject to change and probably will….
10:00am – 12:00noon Set building, talent styling, gear rundown
12:00noon – 3:00pm Full shooting mode, lots of options, experimenting

You’ll have to tune tomorrow in to see the rest of the beautiful talent 😉 Hope to see your tweets and questions in the chat tomorrow!
