Performance videography is the capture of a live performance while it happens. This is our specialty. We can produce a DVD, a web video or a Blu-Ray disk. Or for those in the dark ages a VHS tape. We always record audio using studio quality microphones recorded on a separate hard drive recorder. Most video cameras cannot produce as high quality audio. The cameras are designed for video quality and must capture audio in a standard format. As most of our recordings are music, audio must be the highest priority.
Depending on your needs we can capture with any number of cameras. A single camera is an economical choice but leaves no option for correcting mistakes. For most events we recommend two cameras or three with a static (no operator) image on the third. The static image means that you always have a usable shot.
Other services we provide are demo DVDs for competitions or college entrance requirements. These are always single camera as the rules require an unedited recording. The only editing we do is to replace the camera audio with the hard drive recording and trim the start and end. we also provide CDs from the hard drive audio when needed. We can create videos from your photographs or drawings. We can provide editing services for existing recordings or conversion to DVDs, Web videos or other forms. We can convert your video to PAL format to meet European standards. We can also convert PAL to NTSC. However, any conversion entails loss of quality.
When we deliver a DVD we always provide a full color printed DVD in a DVD case with a full color cover as well. we often capture stills from the video to use as images for the cover and DVD face artwork.
