Welcome to Photos By Passy Video Productions
How will promoters, club owners, and fans know what to expect from a live performance without actually seeing your band “live”?
A handheld iPhone or camcorder video will give them an idea.
But will it make you stand out from all the other bands trying to get their foot in the door and secure work at well paid events?
Photos By Passy offers a variety of Video Packages that help bands market themselves and establish their online video presence.
We aim to create the best coverage possible for the band and venue. This includes adding additional camera operators and detailed post processing to make sure your live performance looks its best.
Find out details of our Video Production Packages by clicking the Silver, Gold, and Platinum buttons below.
The packages listed above are suggested configurations based on standard options. Naturally we will adjust to create the best coverage required for the band and venue, including adding additional camera operators, and detailed post processing to make your live performance look its very best.
Here are some Live Music Videos we have produced for our clients.
Comments from some of our Satisfied Clients:
“As the lead singer of Melbourne based “The U2 Show – Achtung Baby” I can honestly say that for professionalism, punctuality, value and quality of work you really can’t go past Photos By Passy.
Easy to deal with, you won’t find anyone better!”
Michael Cavallaro – U2 Actung Baby Tribute Show
“On behalf of the Takin’ Cover crew, we’d like to thank you for the awesome job you did on our promo videos!
They sound and look amazing! Couldn’t be happier.
Thanks for always being so professional and easy to deal with and a great support to our band.
Will definitely be using your services again in the future.”
Geoff and the Takin’ Cover crew.
“Paul Passy and his team at “Photos by Passy” are amazing.
Their attention to detail at capturing the ‘moment’ are second to none.
Paul has worked tirelessly on projects for me, and all have been nothing short of spectacular.
I cannot rate PBP any higher. They are the best in the business.”
Appetite for Destruction Band
The Doors of Perception Band
Rewind 80’s Band
“Paul is a total pro behind the camera. We have worked with him a number of times and have always been impressed with his ability to capture spontaneous, split-second moments as if they’d been perfectly choreographed!
If you’re looking for a friendly, professional and attentive photographer for your next event, look no further!”
Lead singer, Who AU (The Australian Who Tribute Show)
“Photos by Passy offer a great service, their photos and video footage was of high quality at a reasonable price.
The team were professional, motivated and super easy to work with, nothing was too much trouble for them.
I would highly recommend Passy and his wonderful team without hesitation. “
Dannii 🎤 Copyrite Premier Covers Band
“Thanks Paul for all your work. Thanks to the camera ladies also. Look forward to doing it again.
The video shows what we’re about. You can hear our sound live and see how we interact with the audience.
I had posted the 12 minute highlights video on our Facebook page a while ago and it’s paying off. We just scored a double header show at the Apollo Bay Hotel in early January.
It was viewed by the owner who wants to have an 80’s weekend and chose us as we have fun on stage and have a good time doing it.
Without the video no one knows what we’re about unless they’ve seen us live. To me it’s a great marketing concept and I thank you for it.”
Totally 80s Band Melbourne
Getting the best Performance Video possible requires following a few basic rules regarding “Stage Craft”:
Audience Connection – no backs turned, no chatting, no looking side stage, no drinking from cans on amps, no bad language, look at a camera now and then, move around with energy, SMILE and be seen having a good time.
Good Lighting and Sound is Essential, bring along extra lighting to the gig if you have it, as well as a large black stage backdrop. Have someone mixing the sound for front of house and a lighting operator if possible.
Be Visible in the Light – Stand in the light, feel it on your face, do not go offstage into the crowd unless there is light on you.
Use Acoustic Drum Kits and Clean Guitars and Cymbals
Radiate Energy, Enjoy Yourself, and Engage the Audience !
