It was a thrill to use Dick Osso as our studio videographer. He is professional and punctual. The video client sample the day after the recital was a great touch and my clients loved it! The video quality was amazing and really portrayed our dancers the way that they really are. I am so happy with my chose to hire Dick!
Turn around time made my head spin! Incredible! Dick professionalism was right in line with our Dance School.
I cannot say enough about the Highlight video. My students started dancing to it right way when they received it. I am hoping to include it on my website!
How He Shoots:
The best location is as close as you can. In the back of the auditorium is NOT the where you should be. Depending on Stage size, Lighting, the closer the better.
Dick shoots WIDE and then makes a close up at least twice during each performance, so each student gets there moment up close…..THE 2 PASS
Dick chargers $30 for a fully edited DVD, Printed DVD Disk and Printed DVD Box Insert using your LOGO.
Dick does not charge for shooting the performance recital if at least 20 units are sold for a single show – 40 units for 2 shows – 60 units for a 3 show recital day. Otherwise, another arrangements can be made.
HIGHLIGHT Video POSTED:
Dick will post a Highlight video of the presentation and send the studio the LINK to send out a BLAST email or FACEBOOK announcement of the location link.
Dick can provide printed envelopes to you. These come in handy during the sign up process to collect checks or cash as well as serving as a paper record of who purchased the DVD when it comes time to hand them out.
Dick has a Copy-Printer system that allows him a faster turn around time for the DVDs.
Any parent who still wants a copy of the dance recital DVD, should contact Dick. He will then direct mail a DVD copy to the parent. They will have to include Postage and Packaging besides the cost of the DVD.
Any studio that wants us to direct mail all the DVDs to parents directly, besides the sign up envelopes, there will be included a Mailing label that parents are to fill out. This is how the package is directed. The cost of direct mailing is about $5-$6 per DVD. The benefit of this, the studio does not have to worry about the paperwork.
Studio Included DVD
Several studios have decided to include a DVD as part of the tuition. With each parent receiving a DVD, the studio does not have to concern themselves with the paperwork. They can also let the parents know of Recital day, to lower their cameras and just enjoy the show as they are getting a professional copy.
Dick can set up a Facebook “Hot Button” link for your home page on Facebook.
If you are interested in having your Dance Recital recorded, contact Dick for your next season. As DATES fill up quickly, the sooner you contact him, the better the chance to acquire the date of your recital.
