Video help promote you on the best musician directories and a great addition to your own website. An example is the Encore directory (see below):
A professionally shot video is a very important part of any professional singer or musician’s promotional PR kit.
We think a good location can really enhance the look and feel of a performance video. We can offer a number of varied venues across London, chosen specifically for their acoustic and aesthetic qualities.
If you would prefer a simple black, white or coloured background, we can provide backdrops and lighting that will work in most locations.
If you book one of our video sessions you will receive a beautifully edited high definition video, including a rich soundtrack, presenting you and your voice at their best.
On the day
We allocate 40 – 60 minutes to record a single video of a short song (5 minutes maximum), which allows for a sound test and three or four takes to ensure a good performance. We also need some time to set up, this will vary depending on the equipment needed.
Please arrive warmed up and ready to sing as we cannot offer any rehearsal time.
We recommend you arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of your session to give yourself enough time to dress and prepare your hair and make-up.
How much it costs
To record a video of one song, of up to 5 minutes in length, costs £200.
If you would like to record two songs, please book two video sessions.
You can combine a video with our audio and photography sessions, just ask.
What you will get
After the recording we will send you an edited video in mp4 format ready to upload anywhere you choose as well as a link to the video uploaded onto our Vimeo channel for easy embedding.
We can often make audio patches by using sections from alternative takes, should it be required and dependent, of course, on available and suitable source material. This will be charged for at £50 per hour. See our terms & conditions for full details.
Further video editing
Extensive re-editing will also be charged for at £50 per hour, as will editing and sizing for other formats such as Instagram. If you have any particular requirements and ideas please talk to us beforehand.
The fine print
The cost of the venue is not included in our prices. You can see our suggested venues here.
You will be responsible for bringing your own accompanist, and if you don’t have one we can put you in contact with some excellent pianists.
And please read our terms & conditions which explain how to prepare and what to bring with you and how long each session will take.
If you aren’t in London email us and we will send you a quote for travelling to you.
