Children enjoy watching themselves perform and do not otherwise get the chance to see the entire show. Producing a DVD of the show allows the children's wider family to share in their performance. A DVD of the performance can alleviate parental concerns over limited tickets for school productions. And many parents tell us they enjoy watching the show without having to worry about filming it, as they can just buy the DVD.
Details on our packages can be found on our pricing page.

We need access about an hour before the performance. It is fine for other things to be going on while we set up (eg putting out chairs, setting stage, sound checks etc.).
Yes, all School Video employees have Enchanced DBS.
Not much! An area of 2m x 2m is ideal for us to set up our equipment but we have squeezed into smaller spaces. We also need access to a 13 amp socket within a reasonable distance.
We unobtrusively place professional microphones near to the stage or performance area, to get the best possible sound quality. If the audience can hear the children, you will hear them on the DVDs.
Collect orders and monies from your pupils' parents (using our template order form if you like), then return our simple form to us with your payment. To ensure prompt delivery of the DVDs we suggest starting to take orders prior to the show, with orders closing on the day of recording or the next day.
Yes, of course! We suggest using the programme artwork for your DVD cover or another image if you prefer. Many schools choose to use an image drawn by one of the children.
The Discs are printed with your school name and the production title, and are supplied in hard plastic cases with a colour cover insert which includes your school name, production title, cover picture (if you choose to supply one) and a short blurb for the back (if you choose to supply this).

Upto you. We have not found that parents recording the production affects DVD sales. It is fine to let them film as normal.
