Performedia will provide Dance Photographs & Dance Videos at any Dance Festival or Dance Competition we are invited to work at. We work for free, as we earn from the Dance Pictures & Dancer Videos sales.
Some dancers and parents, but not all, require a dance video of the performance. As a Dancing Videographer, we take requests and with video we take advance payment, to film and produce a Hi Definition video of the dance.
So, if the parents or performers are looking for a Dance DVD, or digital mp4 file, to give them a lifetime keepsake of the performance we can help. Incidentally these dance performance videos are great, when used for dance school auditions or competition entries, such as the Dance World Cup.
As a Dance Photography & Videography Business, we would initially suggest a meeting, FaceTime or Skype type conversation, or detailed telephone call, with a member of the Festival Hosts or Committee to discuss your precise needs. Alternatively, we will make our proposal for you, to accept or amend!
Once everything is agreed with the Dance Festival Hosts or Committee, we just need more information about the venue, if we haven’t worked there before. This will help us to agree the best vantage points for the Dance Festival Photos & Video work, we need to do. The vantage points are important and as a Dance Videographer, it is the vital starting point for success!
An idea about the type of lighting to be used at the venue, prior to the event starting, will be helpful as well. We don’t expect you to always know this, however if you are using a theatre, we will ask them the technical questions, get the answers and set up correctly.
So why choose Performedia as your Dance Festival Media Provider?
As well as providing great Dancing Photos and Dance Videos we will pay back to the Committee or Festival hosts 10% of proceeds which in some instances can be very lucrative.
Our Dance Festival Filming process at Performedia is as follows:-
Provide to all the dance schools attending the festival, Performedia’s contact details & prices for video, 4 -6 weeks in advance of the event. This gives parents and performers, plenty of time to order what Dance Festival Video they want in advance of the event. We need time to prepare and be organised and therefore, must receive completed orders at the latest 72 hours ahead of the festival. We will consider at the event video requests, but make no guarantees due to the unknown volumes of work at the that time. Each Dancing Performance Video will then be post processed and is available as a digital file or DVD, depending on how the customer wishes to receive it.
Dance Filming & Editing is considerably more time consuming than photography, yet we make a commitment to have it available within 7-14 days of the dance.
There are instances where multiple dance videos are required by an individual and we will batch produce, with a volume discount per performer as follows:-
3 Performances for the price of 2.
5 Performances for the price of 3.
10 Performances for the price of 5.
Duet Dance Video, Trio Dancing Filming and Quartet Dance Films are great value to the dance competitors as digital files, as they can be shared by the involved dance performers.
We do however charge more for a group dance, if universal sharing rights between all performers are required. However, on a per performer basis to have that Group Dance Festival Video, as a life time keepsake is fantastic value!
Performedia at the Dance Festival Event, ,will set up an interactive promotional point, prominently promoting how easy it is is obtain and select the Dance Photos or videos from the comfort of their own home.
Don’t forget the performers, parents, friends and extended family may want the photos as well!
As well as the pre ordered video the performance will be photographed as well. They can select the images , decide what size, what media they want it printed on and pay easily online even using PayPal if they prefer!
