Theatre Video Production

Our Father – A theatre video case study

A play commissioned by Watford Palace Theatre.
Our father is a play by Charlotte Keeley exploring issues around female sexual trauma and subjugation. We filmed 3 performances at the Watford Palace theatre and a rehearsal session where we were able to film several scenes with a variety of camera angles. These close ups along with the wide shots from the performances and reviews from the performance formed the base of a 5 minute trailer. This was used to promote and book further productions of the play around the country and abroad.

Bedtime Stories – A theatre video case study

Bedtime Stories – An award winning immersive family show combining circus, dance and physical theatre

We have produced a variety of video content for the theatre and circus company ‘upswing’ in the form of multi camera productions of round table discussions to aid funding applications, videos of training courses, videos of theatre productions in both the research and development and final stages of production. The r and d video was used to give an idea of the project to funders and to secure further funding for the completion of the project.

We filmed the final performances of the piece with 4 cameras over 3 performances. 2 live performances in front of an audience and 1 dress rehearsal. This gave us sufficient material to edit a video of the full performance (1hour approx) including a variety of camera angles and options to include the best performance of each part of the play. We also cut a 3 minute teaser edit of the performance. These videos are currently being used to book future productions of the play and to secure funding for future productions.
