We're a husband and wife team who do not use sub-contractors. Jan is a qualified drama teacher, with many years' experience in the classroom working with mainstream children and those with special needs. She has also directed and acted in numerous drama productions, including a tour at the Edinburgh fringe, and was one of the co-creators of a local theatre group in the 1990's. Daniel has been using video cameras since the days of VHS machines, and has worked on the technical side of stage productions, designing and running sound for a large number of local theatre productions. His background encompasses many technical aspects of video production and editing. We set up School Video when we realised how much our children enjoyed watching the DVDs of their own school productions. Disappointed with the results of these films, (especially with poor audio quality), we felt we could offer a better service and so School Video was born. We normally shoot with 3 HD cameras. This enables us to get good coverage of the action, so we have plenty of footage to use to put together a multi-camera edit of the show. Alongside the cameras, we also use professional microphones. We place the microphones where they will pick up the spoken audio, ensuring we capture the audio in the best quality we can. If you are using your own microphones, we would also be able take a feed from your mixer or sound desk to add to ours. As a general rule, if the front row of the audience can hear it, it will be on the DVD.
We can offer DVD production, online video hosting and multi camera live streaming of any live event. DVDs are supplied as printed discs stating your school/group name, production title and date in plastic library cases with full colour wraps which use your own artwork. These are sent to you, ready for distribution.
