Single or multi-Camera Filming
The Dude regularly films events using either single or multi-camera rigs, and this depends on the size of the event and the way you want to use the footage. There are many ways to film an event and we will advise you on what is right for you and the benefits of multi-camera recording.
For larger events, live screening can be essential for involving the whole audience – especially those towards the back. Live screening will add focus to your speaker presentations and can be vision mixed live between slides and other video material, ideal for making sure all your audience have a high impact experience.
People love seeing themselves on a big screen – even if they don’t always admit it! Beaming a gala event, celebration, awards guests or partying straight to screen always adds a frisson of excitement to the evening and by recording this you can capture the atmosphere forever.
Event Video Production
An exhibition, conference, awards or product launch is a major investment and by recording the event you can maximise your returns. TheDude has filmed many events, both within the SA and abroad, and by editing your event video on site, we can offer a fast turn around service to enable you to air your video within hours of filming.
Event Video – Conference Event Highlights
Creating a conference highlights video is an ideal way to optimise the benefits of your conference event. The Dude records events using multi-camera crews, providing a good choice of camera angles at any point during your conference. A live vision mix can be used to produce an instant screening of events at your conference venue, web streamed or edited off site to include in other video content or presentation media such as Powerpoint.
Key messages from your conference can be cascaded to audiences over time, via websites, social media, intranets, podcasting or DVD – a cost effective way of bringing an event to the widest possible audience.
The Dude’s crews are experienced studio professionals, who have filmed all over Africa and further afield. There are many ways to record a live event and many ways to drive additional value from events using video and we are ready to advise you on a solution that is best for your organisation.
The benefits of event filming
Your event is likely to be an important investment for you and by filming the event you can be sure to drive additional value from this, crystallising key messages and capturing key moments for ever. You can also extend the reach of your event to a wider online audience, wherever they may be in the world.
Cascade Presentation Media
Once your event is recorded on video, you can recreate your presentations in their entirety combining video footage of speakers with the supporting slides and videos. This is a great way to cascade your presentations on to a wider audience or perhaps to make available selected information, tuned to specific audience needs, This material can be distributed either on DVD, USB memory stick , via a web page or video podcast.
Maximising you investment is crucial to any organisation. Once your event has been filmed, it is a simple matter to bring together all the highlights of your event incorporating presentations, key delegates, VIPs, entertainment, awards and celebrations into a single event highlights video. Depending on the style and content of the video, this can be invaluable for sales and marketing training, internal communications, external communications or public relations.
Quick turn around is often key to maximising the value of video recording. The Dude provides on-site editing for these occasions allowing us to film during the day and have your completed video ready for screening at your gala evening event.
The Dude can broadcast your business presentations live around the world, either through internet connection or satellite link. If you need more than one venue linked up this is no problem and if you need two way communication between venues, again this is all possible. There are a multitude of ways to broadcast live and the Blue Sky event management team will advise you on appropriate ways to achieve your aims.
