MythWits Game Show Format
We ask that you join us at 8:15pm ET (East Coast time, USA) so that we can make sure to establish a solid connection with you before the show begins. That way we aren't trying to resolve any connection issues while people are watching. We will bring you in by sending you an email with a link. Click the link and you're in (Google Hangout) - easy peezy. We try to do all the work for you.
This is a video show. You will need to have a camera and a microphone and if you can please use headphones as it reduces echo. Also, please leave your lights on. The more light you have in the room, the better you show up and the greater your video quality will be. Web cams get grainy in low light. If there are two of you, our set up works best if you are on separate computers. However, this is not a requirement. It just helps to keep you both completely in the shot.
Intro Segment: The panel will hear the music intro and Mike will do opening intro. Everyone should remain quite while he does his bit. When he announces your name, please say hi so the people will know who you are.
Introduction: Hosts and guest(s) names and “From” (typically your company or project, or your website).
Promo: If you have anything to promote we'll give you a few minutes to talk about your stuff.
Game: This is the meat of the show. We'll play a game of Mike's choosing. We have a bunch of these and if you're reading this chances are that we've already gone over this in the invite email. If not and you have questions, email Mike and he'll be happy to answer them.
End Credits: There's music and talking as Mike ends the show. We ask that you remain quite during this. He will then kill the stream. However, don't go anywhere just yet! We'll generally record three episodes in a row.
This form will serve as an opportunity for us to collect the most important information about you, the guest, and how we can best include this information throughout the show.
You are only required to answer the questions with an (*) next to them.
