Filming Editing On-Demand Service
Booking Wizard Video Productions
The specialists in school show filming.
Although staging your school show takes months of meticulous planning, rehearsing and sometimes sleepless nights, you know it’s all worthwhile. Booking Wizard Video for your school show filming, will not only provide a lovely memento for pupils and their families but, most importantly, will help your students appreciate the performance as the audience sees it, including choreographic patterns, crowd scenes and special effects.
Wizard Video Productions provides the UK’s leading school show filming service. All our camera operators are not only DBS checked professionals but also thoroughly experienced in filming stage shows from dance school shows, school concerts & nativity plays to dance colleges & West End productions.
Our crews have the special skill required to film short plays for Nursery, Preparatory & Primary schools. At Wizard Video we appreciate that your young performers are only on stage for a short amount of time, therefore our camera operators will carefully follow the plot, always conscious to include all members of the cast for their big moment on stage.
Our cameras are broadcast standard and for your recording, our radio mikes will capture the speaking, singing and music.
Our Academic School Show Filming Service
FILMING in 2021
While pandemic restrictions apply, we are happy to film your classes in their bubble groups.
We have found that it works best if our camera operator and all our filming & sound equipment are set up in just one place e.g. School hall, theatre or even the gymnasium. Each group is filmed in turn (and preferably in the order they will appear on the video!) allowing time in between to sanitize the area etc.
Filming in bubbles does take longer so our camera operators sometimes spend several hours fully masked up. Back at Wizard we edit the scenes into a smooth-running programme adding titles and credits (if wished) as usual. Teachers receive a preview copy to check all is in the correct order.
With the absence of an audience, many schools have decided to provide each child with a digital file for download and build the cost into the school bill or charge to the families through parent pay.
Those schools that choose this option also find that there is less administration involved in this method than there was when dealing with (and chasing!) individual orders.
Several teachers film their classes themselves and send the footage to Wizard to edit and add titles. We then produce a digital file for download and/or DVDs if requested.
Please phone if you want to talk through any ideas you have for a forthcoming production.
We tailor make each pricing package depending on how many children are involved, how long the filming and editing might take.
We are very happy to note your details and work out a quote without any obligation.
