We are dance show and school production filming professionals, we have been filming large scale theatre, dance shows as well as nursery, school and college plays for over 20 years. Our camera operators are amongst the most experienced in filming live productions in the UK, regularly filming live concerts and events for broadcast. Having a vast knowledge and experience helps in any live production, as issues such as lighting and sound problems can be overcome quickly.
We will always use multiple cameras and cameramen if the space will allow, this produces a range of shots from the wide which is great for an overview and tighter shots to see the emotion and individual performers big moments.
With DVD you were always restricted to a lower quality image. The advantage of files on a USB is that it of much higher quality and the fact it can be plugged directly into the TV or Computer for playback.
We can now also provide “extra bonus features” on the USB such as behind the scenes interviews, WIDE camera view/ outakes etc. (this can be discussed for each production)
We recognise the balance between seeing the overall show and the individual performances. This is why we use not only a mixture on angles but also wide to tight framing. We always follow the main plot, capturing every performers big moment. Having multiple operators and 3-4 cameras therefore enables us to capture tighter shots of the performers without missing any of the storyline.
Sound is Just as Important
We make sure we plug into your sound desk when appropriate, yet we also capture sound from our own microphones placed close to your performing area(s) . We make sure we capture the best sound possible within the restrictions on the day.
