Multi Camera Video Production
my Wedding Venue going to look like a Television Studio and am I going
to have people
- crawling all over the show ??
not at all. The crew from Provid have spent many years dealing with the
- to deliver a product that meets both
our client's needs and fits in unobtrusively with your Wedding environment.
We often find other companies passing comment about single camera verses
multi camera, but the facts are very clear.
- It is a fallacy that more cameras mean
more people moving about.
- We can preset our camera angles and shoot
adjusting shot size rapidly as events unfold without fear of missing something
during a Camera reframe. Because we shoot from a number of positions we
never miss out any important detail. We use a number of fixed Microphones
in addition to Camera Microphones. This is done so that we hear your vows
and the "goings on" up front without fear of your newly acquired
baby niece - testing her lungs, or Great Aunt Dot who caught the flu as
she arrived to join you on your special day. Placement of these Microphones
occurs before your guests arrive and normally they are unaware of their
- Regarding Lights - We only place additional
lighting if it is really required and YOU have authorized
- its use. If we mutually agree that some
additional lighting will be used this will be done in a fashion that is
in keeping with the setting of your venue and in a manner that does not
disrupt your Photographer's activities.
will the Provid Crew get on with the Photographer ?
has built up really good professional working relationships with a number
of Photography houses in the Wellington Region. Many of these professionals
actually recommend us to their clients. It is our view that the capturing
of Still Photography is also very important. Many clients spend a great
deal more time on this aspect of their Wedding than on other services.
It is our aim to make sure that we keep out of the Photographers way, and
indeed we will endeavour to assist him or her whenever we can. Oddly enough
this seems to be a two way street and we find the reverse happening as
well. Capturing Video footage of the Photographer doing his or her thing
is normal and often very entertaining to watch particularly during the
formal Photo shoot.
Camera Equipment do we use ?
of comments passed on this one but for the record we use a range of Cameras
to achieve the finished product. Like all companies we do endeavour to
keep up with the trends. Our Prime Cameras are the Sony VX2000, VX 2100,
Sony DSR-PD150P, Sony DSR-200P and for special assignments the Sony HVR-V1P
We use - these are 3 CCD Chip Digital Video Cameras of the very latest
technology. In addition to these units we have 5 Sony Digital Cameras that
are very similar to the type of Camera that families and friends are likely
to own. These Cameras are capable of great looking pictures when setup
and used in the correct environment. The VX and DSR Cameras are used by
all production houses for Broadcast image capturing in circumstances that
call for the use of small cameras.
in New Zealand does Provid operate ?
are no boundaries. We have the ability to operate practically anywhere
around New Zealand.
- Our published rate card is for the Lower
North Island. However we will operate in any part of the country. There
will of cause be extra charges but these will be passed on to you at actual
cost, not a marked up value. Provid is a full time business that specialises
in the Video Production of Weddings, Special Events, Theatre and Training,
and travel to various locations is part of the operation.
can't find your rate card on this site....
ratecard is available to you once you have supplied us with your contact
details. Publishing an on line rate card does not do justice to a service
that can vary considerably from client to client without the opportunity
for explanation. However, we have base rates for the packages that are
described on this website. We have other specials on offer which can be
combined with any of these packages.
would I use Provid as opposed to another company ?
- A good question -Because we believe we
are the best - we enjoy what we do. We want you to
- enjoy the experience of having Provid
at your Wedding. Two thirds of our work comes from recommendation.
long will the finished Video Production be ?
- That is not a question that can be answered
prior to completion and editing of the actual recording,
- We would not be so presumptuous to even
try. Wedding celebrations vary considerably and we will produce a product
that will reflect the actual day as enjoyed by yourselves and your guests.

loss of video due to PROVID error, PROVID will refund
- your deposit in full. This is the full
extent of our Liability.
