The Videos we shoot for Amateur Dramatic Societies, are usually of the entire performance, unless only part of the performance is requested.
The aims as an Amateur Dramatic Videography Business, are to provide high quality High Definition Performance Videos for the actors, actresses and ensemble, the Society itself and family and friends!
These become for everyone a LIFETIME MEMORY KEEPSAKE.
We usually film over 2, or even 3 performances, with an audience for atmosphere, from different positions editing the content together, rather than filming JUST from the back of the theatre, yawn!
So if you need your performance filming, below is a small list of the types of filming we do:-
Musical Show Video
Stage Play Video
As a Performance Videography Business, we would initially suggest a meeting, FaceTime or Skype type conversation, or detailed telephone call, with a committee member, or members of the Society, to discuss your precise needs.
Depending on how many sales we are likely to make, will help us to decide the costs of the DVD’s, and if we are to working for no up front costs etc.
Alternatively, we will make our proposal for you, to accept or amend! Once everything is agreed with the Society, we will just need more information about the venue, if we haven’t worked in it before.
This will help us to agree the best vantage points for the video we need to shoot of the event. The vantage points are important and as a Theatre Videographer, filming the stage, it is the vital starting point for success!
Happy Performers, Happy Parents, Happy Performedia, Happy School, Happy Society .. Happy Days!
An idea of the type of lighting to be used helps prior to the event starting. We don’t expect you to always know this, however if you are using a theatre, we will ask the relevant technical questions of the lighting team, get the answers we need and set up correctly.
So why choose Performedia as your School Event Photo Business?
As well as providing great Stage, Theatre and Performance Videos & DVD's, we will pay back to the Amateur Dramatic Society 10% of proceeds, which in some instances can be very lucrative. As we earn off of the DVD sales we make no charge to the Amateur Dramatic Society for the photography work and time we spend doing it (this depends on the order volume and price of the DVD’s).
