For our DVDs we always want to ensure customers have the “wow!” factor when they watch them. Times are hard and I want everyone who watches anything we do to know that their hard-earned cash was well spent. And that we cared enough to ensure that, not only was the DVD packed with useful information, but that the DVD was professionally filmed and edited.
Too many martial artists cut corners and opt for the “my mate has a video camera” approach to DVD production, and then wonder why they never get repeat custom. If you want a professional product then you need to use professional people.
Professional directors will ensure you can concentrate on what you do best while they ensure you come across as you should on camera and that everything is recorded and outputted as it should be. Professional cameramen and soundmen will ensure that your viewers get everything they need. Professional editors will ensure that the end product is professional, enjoyable to watch and that viewers get the “wow factor” from the first moment they press play.
Louise Musgrave of Harbour View Productions directing on the set of Iain Abernethy’s Beyond Bunkai DVD
I’ve worked with Louise Musgrave on many DVDs and her help has been invaluable. Louise makes the whole process very straightforward and is meticulous about ensuring a high quality product. I really like her too and she always make the process lots of fun (see the outtakes at the end of Beyond Bunkai for some examples of that!).
If you are looking to make a DVD to share what you do with lots of people, or even an in-house syllabus DVD for your students, and you don’t know where to start, all you need do is contact Louise at Harbour View Productions
