Are you a performer, journalist, lecturer or sports manager who has a taste for high quality video and audio production? You have come to the right place :)
To keep the audience’s eyes interested in your video, we film with either 2, 3 or 4 Ultra-HD Panasonic cameras, using both wide angle and zoom lenses. This allows multi-angle video editing; switching between a combination of full stage scenes, roaming close-ups with a 'gimbal' camera stabilizer, and special audience moments. Combined with 4k editing tricks and colour treatments, we can present you and your viewers with a far superior scene than a camera-phone in the audience area.
Most of the material on there is from back in 2018-2020, when I was getting started and filming for practice purpose without charging. Hence, I owned the videos and the rights to publish them to my channel.
We have filmed dozens of acts since the end of 2021’s lockdown with better skills, gear and software - but they were bought, so not listed on the Liveshots YouTube channel (except for a few charity shows).
Have you finished your studio recordings and want to add an entertaining promotional video for video broadcast? Del is well known for real-action in both photography and video for the love of capturing the genuine moment with no artificial elements.
Videographer & Sound engineer Darek Pietryk, and Video ⁄ Photographer Wayne Cee Smith joined the LiveShots team in 2022, with more of a flair for choreography in dramatised video scenes and techniques. Discuss your visualisation of the theme and location with Del, Wayne or Darek, then we can cross ideas to achieve your video according to your budget and our joint resources.
Common question: “how much do you charge?”. For live gig videos, you can find an approximate figure on the Price Options page, but as far as creative videos for studio recordings goes, the answer is “What’s your budget?”. The cheapest service I offer is a photo slideshow with transition effects (new picture every 4 or 8 bars of music, depending on tempo), all pictures treated in Photoshop and lyrics added on top. I price that at £90 for a single song (you provide the photos and I refine them in Photoshop). If you want some pro photography done by us, we will work out the bill depending on how much travelling we do to get you pictured in different locations.
When it comes to filming, the starting price is £180 for something simple in a cost-free location, like a single person miming in a park. This is shot by Del alone, but using multiple takes in different positions ⁄ angles to mix up for variety in the edit. If you want to start getting creative and dramatic, I can bring in an experienced creative director to plan the choreography script, choose a location suiting the theme of the song, hire in some 'extras' for background acting, and direct the band's activity on camera. Costs beyond that option could be anything like hiring a venue to re-enact a gig with your fans coming along to act as dancers, mosh pit or crowd-surfing.
Recording studio re-enactment with more dramatic behaviour is another popular low-cost theme. The filming would be done after the recording is down, so that you can move around more, and the cameras won’t put you off your recording. Additional pricing will come from hiring the special location and any extra actors/dancers, or it could be done outdoors in public like the Verve's famous 'Bitter Sweet Symphony' video.
