Live Performance, Theatre and Arts Films

Let Evenlode Films showcase your work through our creative, high quality video production services.  Whether you would like a showreel for promotions, a trailer to entice a larger audience or the full performance to send to prospective theatres, we are highly experienced filmmakers, ex BBC, specialising in theatre and live events.  Filming in theatres always requires the very experienced filmmaker.     

 

Before Filming Begins

The theatre production is intended to be performed for a live audience and not necessarily for the film camera, so it takes a high level of skill to work around the lighting, the stage, the moving audience, scene changes, wide shots, zoom shots, capturing the fluidity and re-telling the story.

Planning ahead is paramount so rehearsals are not just for the dancers, the rehearsal is key to planning and producing a great film, where shots are planned before the live filming begins

 

Communication is King

Evenlode Films work closely with the Directors and discuss the key moments to capture.  At rehearsals, we usually take notes on characters, emotional moments, props, scene transitions, artistic movements, any light changes and when to maintain the wide shot or zoom.

 
Considerations when Planning the Filming
  • The Stage:  Theatre always plays in 'wide' shot and video usually needs close shots which need to be carefully planned. 

  • Theatrical make up is more extreme than in a commercial video, the skill is knowing when to go wide or zoom and working with the light changes

  • Close ups require special lighting in normal video production, however, we work with stage lighting to capture the right effect, planning each scene

  • Theatres are not always film friendly, stages too high, with rows and rows of seats that obscure part of the stage. We work closely with the Stage Manager to  careful plan and set up the camera positions to capture the best possible aspects.

READ WHAT THE SAY

 

Julian Sammon - Business Development Manager Minelab International

Having worked with Tim, Catherine and their team over the past 3 years I couldn't recommend them highly enough. This year's product launch conception, planning and execution at the Detectival outdoor event went beyond the scope of the brief and they provided additional ideas for content and creating an experience around the event that was well received and brilliantly executed. They really think about how much can be gained from the investment that is made in time and money by their clients and work as hard as they can to deliver the optimum. Looking forward to working with them again in the future

Guy Woodcock - CEO Montpellier PR

I've known and worked with Catherine a long time and she's the consummate professional; brave, determined, organised and thoroughly enterprising - an abundance of ideas and creative thinking.

***

Natasha Russell - CEO  Natasha Russell Events

Great support from the team with outstanding videos results produced on a really quick turnaround. Not only did they produce excellent short 'story to camera' pieces but an outstanding creative piece to support the campaign

***

Dany Freemantle - CEO Oasis Events

These guys are great to work with. Between their production, mapping and filming expertise they can support every aspect of our business and are collaborative, responsive and generous with their time and expertise. Fast and punctual with deliverables and a failsafe pair of hands whatever the project.

Dominic Cotter - BBC Presenter

I have worked with Catherine Mountain (Producer) from Evenlode Productions on a number of occasions. Her company has won the contract with Cheltenham Bid to supply the town with various memorable events, including projecting a World War 2 animation onto the side of the municipal offices as well as providing art installations and Imagery for Christmas celebrations. Added to that I worked with Catherine at the Minelab Detectival Festival in the Cotswolds. Her outstanding professionalism and creative talent is second to none and I would recommend her and Evenlode productions for your event , whether it’s filming or an audio production. I look forward to working with Catherine again soon

Lesley Saint - CEO Cotswold Social Media

We worked with Catherine and Tim (Co Founders)  on a promotional video for the historic Montpellier area of Cheltenham. We were really

impressed with their creativity and commitment to our project. The result was fantastic and something over and above what we expected. We became aware of Evenlode's skills after seeing the outstanding Remembrance Day projection and really wanted to work with them. Highly recommended

Kelly Ramsey 

The visual impact of the film the team created to honour Cheltenham's Fallen for the WW1 centenary was breathtaking.

An honest, creative, passionate team that know exactly how to deliver and support you in achieving your aims
