SCHOOL EVENT FILMING

If your school is having a special event such as Christmas party, concert, graduation ceremony or any other event we have the expertise to film and edit the event. Our two main school event filming services are presented below. The first £400 school event filming service is designed to film all the event but the end product is the highlights of the event, as it provides only one camera man. The second filming service offers two camera operators. This is essential if the whole event needs to be filmed as two camera angles are needed to provide a superior edit.

Professional Sound Recording. High quality audio is recorded using one radio mic for one person at time. If more then one person is speaking, extra radio mics will need to be hired unless the school has their own mics and a mixer which can provide master sound feed for the camera. It is essential to enable us to connect with the school's microphones or sound system if more than one speaker is planned.

5 hours participation (60 min set up) This is the overall time the videographer will be present at the school's premises. For example, if the school event starts at 12:00 the videographer will arrive at 11:00 to set up the equipment and be ready to film from 12:00. The set up time may be longer if internal mics or more complex wiring is required. This is only a guide line and it depends on multiple circumstances. At 16:00 the videographer will  leave. Additional filming hours can be added for £40 per hour.

Split Payment When the school event filming service is booked an initial payment of £150 is required to secure the date. The remaining £350 is paid before the DVD or HD video is sent out. Payments are made via bank transfer.

Triple back up. All our cameras film on high quality SD cards or compact flash cards to prevent any errors. This means that there are no moving parts in the camera therefore decreasing chances for potential errors. Usually, all the school event video is transferred to a hard drive within 24 hours. When this transfer takes place, the footage is also automatically backed up to an external hard drive in case the internal hard drive fails. On top of this, there is a third security level. All of the school video files are also transferred over period of time to an external location in case a fire or any other disaster takes place and destroys the two back ups. The triple back up is kept until the project is completed.

Fully Edited. The school event video is fully viewed and the editors cut out the unnecessary scenes, add fade ins and fade outs, titles and adjust the sound levels and reduce the noise. The end product is highlights of the event.
