Theatre Archival Videography
Theatre videography consists of marketing videos, performance videos and highlight videos. Each happens at a different stage of production.
Marketing videos help to attract audiences. Thus, they are usually at the beginning of the production, before the performance starts. They can be interview videos or short films that show the performance. Hence videos like these must capture the attention of the audience to create an impact.
From Esplanade’s Website:
“A contemporary reimagining of the Indian epic tale The Mahabharata that resonates with the current day.
The Pandavas and the Kauravas—two groups of cousins—struggle for political power and the claim to the dynastic succession to the throne of the Hastinapura, an Indian kingdom. The confrontation climaxes with an 18-day Kurukshetra War involving even the gods. Unimaginable death and destruction ensue, and all on the battlefield are forced to face up to their dharma—their duty and purpose in the universe…
Playwright and Director: Chong Tze Chien
A programme of In New Light – A Season of Commissions, in celebration of Esplanade’s 20th anniversary.”

Publicity theatre videography and highlights
Performance videos are usually the actual performance or full dress rehearsals.
Testimonial videos used footage from performance videos to create reviews and boost last-minute sales. These are very powerful in creating visibility as they are a mix of actual testaments and exciting portions of the performance. However, such videos have a very tight time constraint and, thus can be tricky to create.
Lastly, highlight videos are short abstracts of the video that will help to sell the show for future reruns
