FRINGE FILMING AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Edinburgh hosts the biggest arts festival in the world and Pull Focus is back in 2022 to capture your show. Whether it’s comedy, spoken word, theatre or dance, we’re ready to capture your show. We’re only up at the fringe for a limited time this year so get in touch to book your show in now!

We know it has been a difficult period for live performance and with audiences now engaging with recorded shows online getting a video of you show is more important than ever. Video is a great way to promote your show for touring elsewhere, offer as a  crowd funding reward or just a keepsake for cast and crew.

Previous shows recorded at The Edinburgh Fringe have included: Dr. Phil’s Health Revolution, Marcel Lucont: The Lockdown Verses, Dr. Phil: Life and Death, Tim Vine: Plastic Elvis, The Guilty Feminist Podcast, Bumper Blyton, Gypsy Queen, Pottervision, Bhumi Dance Collective, Will Mars: My Life’s A Joke and ComedySportz.

“Amazingly sensitive filming despite it being the first time Sean and Brainne watched the show! They sensed all the right moments to do close ups, and the edit of the two angles they filmed is absolutely beautiful. Pull focus also made a trailer for me which I couldn’t be more happy with! The trailer helped massively with helping promote the next part of our tour, and it’s also extremely useful to have now that we are hoping to develop our production!” Maria Montague, Director Maklena (Edinburgh Fringe 2017)

“Sean and his team did an excellent job of capturing our 2017 production of Gypsy Queen at Hope Mill Theatre, using multiple cameras and a range of mid range and close ups to beautifully capture the action. Totally professional, fun to work with at a very competitive rate.” Rob Ward, Writer/Actor Gypsy Queen (Edinburgh Fringe 2018)

“I’ve used Pull Focus for over 5 years to record various productions including Irlam Fringe and my 2019 Edinburgh Fringe show Little Rabbit. Before that, they worked on JB Shorts, filming two of my short plays in Manchester. They are amazing – professional, reliable, approachable. I can leave everything in their hands when it comes to filming a live show.” Jane McNulty, Writer Little Rabbit (Edinburgh Fringe 2019)

GETTING YOUR FOOTAGE/PHOTOS

We shoot in High Definition on Canon c100s and Canon 5ds with a mix of manned and static cameras. We have the ability to record live sound and also take sound from the audio desk where possible. We have full public liability – more details below.

We aim to complete video edits as quickly as possible, normally within one to two weeks. You will receive a copy of the edit via file transfer. You may also purchase additional DVD copies priced £6 each. We can also provide the final edit on a USB stick for an additional £10 (or free if you provide your own USB stick). Unfortunately, we are unable to post DVDs or USBs abroad so can only offer a file transfer to artists visiting from outside the UK if the edit is to be completed after you return home from the Fringe.

Photo edits will be sent to you within 48 hours of your show (often much earlier/same day) via File Transfer.
