What is shooting “full stage” only?
We believe that its nearly impossible to zoom in and pan across dancers while providing equal “camera time” for all dancers. Shooting full stage removes this problem and also provides a full stage view so you can see the dance the way it was choreographed.
Can clients order online?
Yes! We can setup a dedicated and password protected web page for your event. From here clients can print and order by mail, order safely and securely with credit card via Paypal, and also monitor the progress of the DVD production.
Are events filmed in HD?
Yes, all events are captured in full 1080 widescreen High Definition. Bear in mind however that DVD’s are only capable of Standard Definition at 720. For true HD, you will need a Blu-ray disc and Blu-ray player. Please Contact Us to discuss options to provide a Blu-ray option for your event. The easiest method would be to provide a check box on the order form allowing for a Blu-ray upgrade for $10.00. If you have purchased a recital DVD, you may be able to purchase a Blu-ray disc by Contacting Us.
Can you capture audio direct from the venue sound board?
Yes, in many cases. Our camera's have the ability to capture direct audio via an XLR input. If we are positioned close enough to run an XLR cable AND your venue can provide a “Passive XLR Channel”, we can capture audio directly. I am always available to discuss all the audio options and we have a few different solutions for capturing direct audio, ambient audio, or in some cases a combination. Ambient audio (using only the cameras on board microphones) is the standard setup for most events, which in most cases provides the sounds of tap shoes, dancers clapping and audience applause. Capturing audio from sound board is also dependent on the technical capabilities of both the venues sound boards “audio out” port configuration to our cameras “in” port capabilities. We have many adapters and can typically make most setups work, however there are situations that may render audio capture from a sound board unobtainable.
Do you have any samples for viewing online?
Due to the sensitive ages and clients privacy, we do not have any video samples online. I am always happy to host a meet & greet or perhaps I can visit your dance studio to discuss details. I can show a previous recital DVD at this meeting. We do have a video page on Youtube where you may get a feel of our work: Visit our Youtube Page Here
How long does it take to edit, produce and ship DVD’s?
We strive to deliver as quickly as possible. In most cases, we can deliver within a few weeks of the event date.
