FILMING FOR THEATRE

Full Show Filming:

  • The whole show will be filmed with up to three cinema grade cameras - 1x wide static shot and 2x mid/close ups

  • We will take an XLR feed from the venue's sound desk to get the best possible audio, and can provide mics depending on the nature of the performance.

  • We provide full post production - colour grading, cutting between cameras, balancing audio, and adding titles, credits and logos.

  • The film will be delivered to you as an online link which you can stream or download. 

  • We are happy to make as many amendments to the film as needed until the final piece is exactly how you want it.

Show Trailers:

  • If we are already filming the full show, we can then create a trailer made from that footage. 

  • Another option is to film some short clips separate from the show, with the sole purpose of creating a trailer.

Audience Vox Pops:

  • We can capture audience reactions as they exit the performance at the end.

  • It can be daunting to speak to a camera as a member of the public when you're not used to it, so we always keep the vox pops as natural as possible just catching people in friendly conversation as they flock into the foyer rather than setting up a specific filming area.

Behind the scenes, access videos and "Meet the Team":

  • We can come into your rehearsals and capture some behind the scenes footage. We'll create a 30-90 second video which you could share on social media to create a buzz ahead of the show. 

  • Access videos are incredibly important for inclusivity in theatre, whether this is a BSL clip or a guided tour of the venue. 

  • "Meet the Team" videos are great for giving people an insight into how the show has come together, and shining a spotlight on the people who have helped create it.
