Filming an event is a powerful way to capture and preserve special moments, engage a wider audience, and create valuable content for future use. However, understanding the intricacies and costs involved in event filming is essential for effective planning and budgeting. In this blog, we will explore what is involved in filming an event and provide insights into the associated costs. Additionally, we will highlight how White Event Production can support you in achieving a seamless and professional event filming experience.

Video Capture


Before the event, pre-production activities play a crucial role in ensuring a successful filming process. This includes scriptwriting, storyboarding, shot planning, and equipment preparation. Depending on the complexity of the event, pre-production costs can vary significantly.


High-quality equipment is essential for capturing professional footage. Costs can vary depending on the type of camera, lenses, lighting, audio equipment, and other accessories required. Hiring professional-grade equipment or working with an experienced production company can help ensure optimal results. White operates Sony Cinema Line cameras including the groundbreaking new PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) camera which includes the sensor and processing of a cinema camera but with the benefits of a remote ‘hot head’ camera.


The size and expertise of the crew will depend on the scale of the event and the desired outcome. A basic crew typically includes a director, camera operators, sound technicians, and production assistants. Larger events may require additional crew members, such as a producer, gaffer, or makeup artist.

By working with a dynamic company such as White Event Production, often a smaller crew can be used as multi-skilled technicians and therefore able to multi-task in order to push the production boundaries within a given budget.


Filming an event involves careful logistical planning. This includes coordinating with event organisers, securing necessary permits, arranging transportation for crew and equipment, and ensuring proper access to the event venue. These logistical considerations can impact the overall cost of event filming.


Post-production involves editing the footage, adding graphics or animations, colour grading, sound mixing, and finalising the video. The complexity of post-production will depend on the desired outcome and can significantly impact the overall cost. This can even include custom sound tracks and sound effects.

Distribution and Licensing

Once the event video is complete, there may be additional costs associated with distributing the content, such as uploading to online platforms or creating physical copies. Licensing fees may also apply if the video includes copyrighted material or music.
