We produce School, College and University Event Videos and memories that last a lifetime. If your School, College or University is having a special event such as Christmas party, concert, graduation ceremony or any other event we have the expertise to film and edit the event.
We have wide experience in recording stage, school concerts, plays, all dance forms, including ballet, pantomime, nativity, gymnastics, nursery, college, & west end productions.
We can provide Multi-camera HD Video Services as well as Photographic Video Services.
With today’s hectic schedules it is not always possible for parents to make it to their child’s special academic events. Total Video Productions will capture your event in high definition on a high quality DVD or Blu-ray disc, allowing parents to see their child’s performance in the comfort of their own home as well as being able to have a keepsake of the event to embarrass their child with at family events for years to come.
The event will be captured by our CRB certificated videographers, edited and presented to the school within 5 days of the event taking place.
Each disc will have a fully printed face, and come in a clear slip cover, CD case or DVD case depending on your own individual requirements. If requested, the covers will include full school branding.
Due to the current tight constraints of the school budgets, there will be no ‘up front’ charges for the filming and production of the event. Total Video Productions will charge a set price for each disc sold once the presentation has been completed. At the end of the event, there will be order slips available for parents to request a copy of the DVD or Blu-ray disc
The pricing of the disc is set by the school, allowing this to be a good way to generate additional revenue for future events

The benefit of this package is that we provide two cameramen, which means that we will be able to cover at least two angles which is essential for full coverage of the event. The cameramen will film for up to 7 hours this also includes a 60 minute equipment set up time. The video is edited and burned on a designed DVD.
Two professional camera operators. This school event filming service provides two professional camera operators who know the equipment inside out. Apart from their technical skills they are also polite, reliable, and discreet. They are able to resolve most technical problems with sound and cameras. They also do their best to film in a way that the event is not interrupted.
Full HD 1080p footage shot on a high definition DSLR or a camcorder. All school events are recorded in full HD quality and the school has full rights to distribute the video. After the edit is completed a download link of the video will be emailed.
Professionally printed DVD case with a printed DVD face and HD link. After a month or sooner if required, a professionally designed DVD is posted out. Also a high definition download link is emailed so that the video can be watched in HD. High quality graphics or photos are required for the DVD print. Extra DVDs can be bought for £20 each.
Up to 7 hours participation (60 min set up) This is the overall time the videographers will be present at the school. For example, if the school event starts at 12:00 the videographers will arrive at 11:00 to set up the equipment and be ready to film from 12:00. The set up time may be longer if internal mics or more complex wiring is required. This is only a guideline and it depends on multiple circumstances. At 18:00 the videographers will leave. Additional filming hours can be added for £70 per hour.
Split Payment. When the school event filming service is booked an initial payment of £210 is required to secure the date. The remaining £490 is paid before the DVD or HD video is sent out. Payments are made via bank transfer.
Free Filming Service
Filming costs are covered through DVD sales to pupils, performers and their families.
We do need a guaranteed minimum sales total to give you a free filming service.
(30* for a single camera weekday show and 70* for a two camera show. The number of cameras at a show usually depends upon the complexity of choreography, number of performers & sales potential).
1. DVDs retail from £14.95. (single camera – weekday) and £17.95 (two cameras)
2. We will send you a booking confirmation with forms to complete and a checklist to help with the filming process, followed by a sales pack with order forms, posters and payment slips to help you promote DVD sales
3. Title pages, covers and DVD face design are created to match the show programme and the theme
4. You place your DVD order through Wizard direct and it will normally† be fulfilled within five days of ordering!
*’Minimum sales required’ is subject to geographical proximity to our main office. Performance filmed at distance may be required to guarantee higher minium sales
†Turnaround during busy periods will be longer as we have far larger volume of productions to edit within a shorter timeframe
At Total Video Productions Ltd, all our camera operators are professionals; thoroughly experienced in working at live events, often in challenging surroundings. Stage video production is one of our great specialities & Fast duplication facilities in-house enable us to offer rapid turnaround.
Professional Sound Recording. High quality audio is recorded using one radio microphone for one person at a time. If more then one person is speaking, extra radio microphones will need to be hired unless the school has their own microphones and a mixer which can provide master sound feed to the camera. It is essential to enable us to connect with the school’s microphones or sound system if more than one speaker is planned.
Fully Edited. The school event video is fully viewed and the editors cut out the unnecessary scenes, add fade ins and fade outs, titles and adjust the sound levels and reduce the noise. Any graphics needing to be included in the video must be provided before the editing has commenced.
Triple back up. All our cameras film on Hard-drives, high quality SD cards or compact flash cards to prevent any errors. With SD Cards, this means that there are no moving parts in the camera therefore decreasing chances for potential errors. Usually, all the school event video is transferred to a hard drive within 24 hours. When this transfer takes place the footage is also automatically backed up to an external hard drive in case the internal hard drive fails. On top of this, there is a third security level. All of the school video files are also transferred over period of time to an external location in case a fire or any other disaster takes place and destroys the two back ups. The triple back up is kept until the project is completed.
