Dance Show Filming and Photography

In the meantime here is a case study of our dance show filming at the IDF World Dance Championships

We had such a great time shooting the IDF World Dance Championships earlier this year. It was one of the hottest weeks in the year and Eastbourne was like a Mediterranean resort, the temperatures were uncomfortably high. Dance show filming was spread over four days and competitors had traveled from all over the world to perform. I have to say the level of the competition was exceptional and it was clear that many of the competitors had spent years practicing their craft in order to perfect it. We had a small crew with us this year to gather enough footage to produce a highlights reel as well as screen the performances live in the atrium for those that couldn’t get into the auditorium.

Our brief for the IDF Dance competition

Our brief was very simple, shoot the competitors performances and make the routines available to them as well as gather footage of the event and location. We also had to try and introduce an emotional element into the highlight as the IDF championships isn’t without it, as there were numerous languages spoken by all we relied on the visuals to convey message rather than dialogue.

Back stage highlights for your Dance Show

Its a great option to produce a short teaser of the build up to the dance show and unlike many other companies we don’t charge for this service. We can cover dress rehearsal, interviews and the general nervous build up just before the curtain opens. It gives the students something amazing to look back on for years to come, and helps them see how much they have improved over the years as their confidence has grown. Here is a short example of a back stage shoot.

 

How much does it cost to film a Dance Show

Well we dont make any upfront charges for dance show filming, we do however have a minimum order quantity for DVD sales, we have to do this in order to make it viable. Our requirements all depend on the number of DVD’s you sell, also how many cameras you require but as a rough guide our prices range from £10/DVD up to £14.99/DVD. Its a great service and an easy way for you to provide a filming service for all your students and attendees alike. We are very easy to work with and usually turn orders around within 7 to 10 days from filming. Many of our dance show filming customers return year after year because of the high production values we work to. Call or email for more details.

Filming Options

Here at Cedar House Productions we have many options for dance show filming and can offer up to 4 camera coverage for larger shows, or if its a small show we can comfortably film and produce a great DVD with just one camera/operator. Generally additional cameras will provide a more dynamic edit but its largely dependent on the theatre size and space for filming as well as the size of the show. You can however rest assured whichever option you choose you will get a great product at a great price. Here is an example of a single camera shoot.

Why video a Conference in Chester

Its interesting how the industry has moved on over the years. Many event organisers realise that its not good enough just to hold the event and rely on images to recollect what happened. It can actually beneficial from a financial stand point to have your conference filmed. There are several quite lucrative options you could offer such as podcasts. Some organisers provide live streaming of the conference via paid uplink . It really is a very sensible and cost effective way of preserving the content. At Conference event filming Chester we provide all these options along with a great quality final product which you can look back on for many years.

Case Study

Our brief was to capture the day as it happened in very much a documentary style. Having little control over what happened and where. We also filmed several interviews from delegates and sponsors in order to document the benefit of becoming part of the Teamkal network as well as the wider picture of getting together with trading partners.

Manchester Gym – The Hub Fitness Centre

Manchester Gym – The Hub Fitness Centre has a new Promotional film

We had an awesome time shooting this little promo for the Hub Fitness in Radcliffe Manchester. Its such a cool gym and has a great vibe about it, not your usual training sessions here. They try and incorporate lots of different activities so that each session is never the same and they have a great ethos that all the trainers embody. They decided to have a professional video made to co-inside with the opening of their new lower floor and spartan training room. It has lots of great kit for toning, muscle gain or just general fitness and the classes provide you with nutritional advice as well as a weekly program based around your goals.

I really love this place and it was a pleasure to work for them shooting and editing this little promo. The shooting was done over two afternoons and allowed us to use our high speed camera to get some great moving shots. The whole project was turned around in just over one week to the complete satisfaction of the client.
