Choosing a Massachusetts Videographer, Video Company For Your Dance Recital
Hire a Western Massachusetts videographer for your next dance recital
How to decide on a video production company and videographer for Massachusetts based recital dance performance
Dance recitals are one of our most enjoyable video productions and we look forward to each one when we work with Massachusetts’ dance studios and dance schools. A tremendous amount of work, planning, and practice goes into the creation of a dance recital; the excitement and energy on the evening of the performance is palatable. At the same time, we understand how critical it is to have a memorable video recording of the night’s performance. Finding and choosing a videographer that suits your specific needs is important.
We know and understand that students, teachers, and audiences enjoy reliving the performance, not only in the weeks and months after the recital dance but in years to come. A DVD or digital video recording is also important in terms of review and future growth of the studio and students. It may serve as a showcase in a portfolio for a career in dance and stage performance. Some teachers and instructors may use the DVD as a training tool. Whatever your specific needs, it is important to address your goals and desires with the videographer well in advance.
The shoot: There are several techniques when recording a live performance from a single (back-of-the-room) camera angle to a multi-camera shoot. Multi-camera shoots typically add cost because additional camera personnel are required, but it also adds engaging and interesting close-ups and angles. However, single camera video shoots can be just as beautifully captured with just the right amount of planning to allow for zooming in on particular dances and dancers.
DVD and HD: The final video can be delivered via DVD which continues to be a very popular format. DVDs also offer the option of having custom menus and chapter points so that you can quickly click and jump to your favorite performances. DVDs deliver video in standard definition (SD). In some cases, the performances can also be delivered via the web in high definition (HD) with a crisp and sharper look.
